Dekton is an ultra-compact surface made using a process called Sinterized Particle Technology. This high-tech method imitates the change that natural stone undergoes when exposed to high temperatures and pressure over thousands of years.

This surface can withstand high temperatures without burning, scorching or cracking. Hot pots and appliances like crock pots can be placed directly on the surface with no worry of damage. It is also completely stain-proof. Even the most stubborn of stains, like wine, coffee and rust can easily be removed from the surface.

There are many more benefits to Dekton, including:

  • Highly scratch-resistant
  • High resistance to fire and heat
  • Resistant to abrasion
  • High UV resistance
  • Waterproof
  • Colour stability – it has colour consistency from slab to slab, resulting in a long-lasting product that will not fade over time.
  • Dimensional stability – it is consistent in both dimension and thickness throughout the slab which allows for easy installation.

How to order your bespoke worktop

Design and planning

Your kitchen can be planned using our Spaces design tool, which will also create an initial cost estimate. A final price is confirmed once a specialist has visited to measure and template your kitchen.

Digital template

Once your new kitchen cabinets have been installed, one of our specialists will take a digital template of the worktop area. Your bespoke granite, quartz or solid surface worktop will be made, while your kitchen fitters complete the installation of your cabinet furniture.

Installation

5 days (10 days for solid surface) after the design of the digital template, our installation team will arrive to install your new worktop. Then, another visit from your kitchen fitters will follow to connect up your taps, sinks and appliances.
