What to expect from ceramics and sintered surfaces

Consistent worktops

High consistency in colours and patterns due to digital imagery, allowing imitation of marble, quartz, granite, concrete, wood, and metal

Versatility

Ceramics and sintered surfaces are suitable for outdoor spaces, indoor worktops, flooring, walls, and cladding

Customisable thickness

Slabs are available in varying thicknesses for creating a sleek or deeper work surface appearance

No need to seal

As a non-porous surface, there’s no need for sealing. However, exposed edges may require treatment, including masonry wax colouring

Resilient

Excellent heat and scratch resistance compared to other surfaces. It’s safe to put hot pans on the work surface or cut directly without a chopping board. However, we’d always advise caution

How to care for ceramic and sintered stone

Daily care

Wipe the worktop with a damp cloth and a little bit of soapy water. Rinse the cloth, wipe the surface again to get rid of soap, and finish with a quick buff using a clean, dry cloth. Never use abrasive cloths or scouring pads

Avoid weight

Avoid standing or sitting on the surface or placing heavy objects on weaker points like joins and cut-outs
