Our kitchen is the heart of our home. They are an entertainment hub where friends and family flock to gather for a meal and connect with each other, and this means that for many of us the kitchen is the room we most like to spend time in. If you’re thinking of making some changes to your kitchen, composite quartz continues to be a popular choice for worktop updates when creating a modern space for living, working, and celebrating in.

What is Composite Stone, and where does it come from?

Composite quartz/stone, also known as engineered stone, or engineered quartz is a man-made surface containing crushed quartz (one of nature’s hardest minerals) and sand – all held into place with a resin, making it a durable surface, perfect for busy homes.

Quartz is one of the most common minerals on earth, and it forms in various textures and colours, meaning composite quartz comes in a variety of colour and pattern options. There are even composite stones produced to duplicate natural stones like marble but with increased durability to its natural counterpart. Customers often choose composite quartz as each slab within a range looks the same so you know exactly what you’re getting, compared to natural stones which are varied and unique slab-to-slab.

There are many manufacturers of composite quartz across the world suitable for a variety of budgets and durability needs. To source the best product for your kitchen worktops speak with Coulon Stone who will be able to provide expert advice and guidance.

Using Composite Stone in your kitchen

We’re spending more time than ever at home with many of us moving to home working, and this means more time in our kitchens, so upgrading this room has become a priority for many homeowners.

Composite stone worktops are a great way to enhance the appearance of your kitchen and bring new life to a space, offering you more reasons to bake, cook, and host dinner parties.

Composite stone has been man-made for its durability, aptness to support even the busiest of homes, and it’s flexible design. For this reason it’s a popular choice among homeowners looking to create a kitchen that can support their lifestyle, and fit their style, whether that’s a modern scandi look, more traditional farmhouse style, or darker industrial design.

The benefits of using Composite Stone for your worktops

Upgrading your worktops give your kitchen a new lease of life, and improve the function and value of your home. But are you aware of all the good reasons you should choose composite stone rather than a material like wood?

  • Having a composite worktop for a busy kitchen environment is ideal due to its strength and durability. Most are scratch, stain and heat resistant to 260 degrees centigrade – to check the durability of a specific brand of composite stone please speak to Coulon Stone.
  • Composite stone offers a variety of textures, most commonly smooth, shiny surfaces but also flame brushed for a more rustic finish.
  • Composite stone is known for the huge variety of colours and patterns that are available, and as mentioned above some are even produced to replicate natural stones which might be less durable like some marbles. This means you can choose the perfect colour to match your kitchen palette without having to compromise functionality.
  • Composite stone worktops are easy to clean and maintain, prolonging the life of your kitchen and keeping their value high in your home.
  • Composite Stone is a cost-effective choice, perfect for those who want to update their kitchen but need to be conscious of their budget. Composite Stones can be more affordable than most natural stones and with kitchen prices climbing, having the ability to choose cost-effective kitchen countertops is ideal.

How to clean and maintain your Composite Stone Worktop

Cleaning and maintaining your composite stone worktop is effortless and straightforward. As your worktop is made from resin, it’s non-porous, unlike some other worktop choices, so it does not need to be sealed.

Cleaning your composite stone with a soft, damp cloth and a gentle surface cleaner, avoiding bleaches and harsh chemicals which could damage your worktop, will be sure to keep your worktop looking new for a long time.

Coulon Stone recommends that you lightly polish your worktop once a week with a stone polisher to keep your worktop looking bright. Granite Clean And Sheen is an excellent choice of product that comes highly recommended! To order your cleaner, get in contact with Coulon Stone.
