Ceramic worktops have grown in popularity over the last 10 years, they can also be known as porcelain or sinted stone. Because ceramic worktops are engineered, the sky is the limit with the colour and design options that this stone has to offer. The Ceramic worktop provides a great look for the on trend, modern kitchen designs to the traditional kitchen designs.
Ceramic is a strategic mix of ceramic, porcelain and other polymers and considered to be one of the strongest materials available on the market. The material is made from the same raw materials found in glass, porcelain and quartz but what really sets this stone apart is the way in which it is manufactured. A process called sinterized particle technology is used which subjects this stone to extreme heat and pressure, this process mimicks what would take mother nature thousands of years to do in a matter of seconds providing an ultra-compact surface which has countless benefits.
To help you through your decision making process we have put together a handy guide with all the information that you need to know about Ceramic.
All of our worktops are cut from premium grade slabs provided by brands we trust. Our Ceramic slabs come from Dekton, Neolith, Laminam and Quartek who we have very close brand relationships with. Their quality combined with our state of the art factory process including CNC technology and polishing means that the outcome will be a modern and sleek worktop design that will see you through for life.
Aside from providing an ultra on-trend look, Ceramic worktops actually have tonnes of benefits. Due to its non-porous properties, this stone is completely scratch, stain and heat resistant. Water simply slides off it making it easy to clean. The nature of this stone means that it also carries antibacterial properties as germs and bacteria cannot penetrate the surface.
With so many styles available to choose from, you'll be spoilt for choice. We have put together some short and snappy Q&As to help you all out on your worktop choosing journey.
Industrial, Mid-Century Modern, Traditional, Minimalistic and so much more! There are so many on-trend styles right now so a great idea would be to focus on which style you're trying to achieve as the worktops really will be the icing on the cake when it comes to a kitchen design. Luckily we have a wide range of colours to suit all of these designs.
There are so many ways to achieve an eye catching look, perhaps go for a marble effect Ceramic worktop or even match the worktop to the cabinetry (this looks really good on an island centrepiece) If you'd rather a more subtle look perhaps go for a lighter material with a more muted tone.
Again this is personal preference, one of the benefits of ceramic worktops, due to the fact they are engineered, it doesn't matter if you go for a light or dark colour. They both are equally durable to scratching and staining, unlike lighter granites that are more likely to stain.
With the most popular edge profiles being a chamfer or pencil round, these both compliment the Ceramic material nicely with its 20mm thick edges. Both edge profiles would look especially great on an industrial style kitchen as they provide a very sleek and modern look!
This really depends on your kitchen and the look you want to achieve. Our expert stonemasons are always on hand to offer advice on which colours will compliment your kitchen. We are also more than happy to send out actual samples of ceramic to help your decide on colour.

The Industrial kitchen is all about mixing of materials such as concrete and exposed brick as well as dark colours which often include black and grey. The details are important and often include metal and wood accents. The Ceramic worktops that suit the Industrial Style the most are Trilium and Kreta. The Trilium Dekton by Consentino provides an ultra-industrial look with the mixture of grey and black tones and the Kreta Dekton by Consentino gives that concrete inspired appearance.
A Marble Effect Dekton worktop adds a real eye catching feature to any kitchen design. Whether you want to go light or dark we have both options to choose from! For the subtle marble lovers our Kelya Dekton by Consentino would look great with its thin veining design on a dark background, our Opera Dekton by Consentino is not too much yet not too little with its swooping grey veining! For a more bold marble appearance why not try our Laurent, Entzo or Aura15 Dekton by Consentino designs?
The 20mm thickness on these worktops means that the Mid-Century Modern look is an ideal style kitchen for Ceramic to feature in! The Mid-Century Modern look combines clean looks with pops of colour! Try our Kelya and Opera Ceramic worktops to achieve this look.
