Cosentino surfaces aren’t just used to make worktops either. You’ll also find Cosentino materials used on floors, walls, building facades and swimming pools. And some materials are used to make kitchen and bathroom sinks, shower trays and furniture. That’s an indication of just how versatile and strong these surfaces are.

Sustainability is high on Cosentino’s agenda, too, as they strive to create products that positively impact the world. For example, their products contain high percentages of recycled materials with long life cycles. They’re manufactured with renewable electricity and recycled water. And they’re transported globally using increasingly cleaner and more efficient transportation methods.

Dekton® combines the best qualities of porcelain, glass, and quartz to create a truly revolutionary surface. It’s a technical ultra-compact stone manufactured using exclusive technology that causes mineral particles to bond with each other. This advanced process mimics how natural stone is formed deep underground, achieving what nature takes thousands of years to perfect within hours.

There are a wide range of benefits in choosing Dekton® for your worktops. Whether dealing with hot pans, accidental spills, direct sunlight, sharp objects, or extreme temperature changes, Dekton® is built to withstand the demands of daily life with ease. It’s also fire-resistant, providing an extra layer of safety and peace of mind in the kitchen. And maintenance is a breeze because it only needs a quick wipe-down to keep it looking pristine.

With Dekton®, finding the perfect colour to match your kitchen design is easy. An extensive range of colours, textures, and finishes offers many possibilities to suit your style and preferences. From elegant whites and creams to sophisticated greys and bold, dark hues. You can choose from solid colours for a sleek modern look or explore designs that mimic the beauty of natural stones like granite and marble.

And it’s also an extremely durable surface that will last for decades.

Silestone® is available in three luxurious finishes and a wide variety of colours, allowing you to effortlessly find the perfect match for your kitchen design.

Choosing the perfect Cosentino worktop for your kitchen

Several factors must be considered when selecting a Cosentino worktop to ensure it perfectly suits your needs and preferences. One crucial aspect is your lifestyle and how you use your kitchen. If you’re a messy cook or have young children, opting for a worktop with high stain and heat resistance, such as Dekton®, is a wise choice. Silestone® and Sensa® are also stain-resistant, but you need to be careful with hot pans and always use a hot pad or trivet.

When it comes to colours and patterns, selecting options that complement your kitchen décor and overall design scheme is crucial. Consider the existing colour palette in your kitchen, such as cabinets and flooring, and choose a Cosentino worktop that harmonises with these elements.
