The bathroom may be the smallest room in the home, but it is vital that the space is one of the most functional and hard-working. Surfaces must survive humidity, water, bumps, spills and continue to look beautiful too. It’s a tall order.
With this in mind, Cosentino’s Dekton and Silestone are designed to stand up to heavy traffic and decades of use, making them the perfect materials to help you create a space where homeowners can take care of their well-being. Available in large-format tiles, the surfaces are perfect for custom-manufactured shower trays, basins and countertops. They come in various thicknesses and finishes, ensuring Dekton and Silestone are ideal for anything from slimline drawer fronts to thicker countertops in wet areas.
With its low porosity levels, Dekton has anti-slip and anti-stain technologies that protect the space. Dekton Slim is an excellent choice for bathroom wall linings, thanks to its 4mm thickness and large format slabs (3200 x 1440mm) that allow for minimal joints in the surfaces, creating continuous uninterrupted designs.
Available in more than 40 colours and patterns, Dekton offers incredible durability, quality and long-lasting beauty with minimal maintenance. It is abrasion resistant, making it practical for interior applications, including bathroom flooring, where there is typically high foot traffic. Dekton’s hardness scores 7/10 on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness, further proving its strength and durability. The ultra-compact surface is warranted for 25 years and is highly scratch-, fade- and stain-resistant. It is sustainable too, with 100% renewable electricity and 99% recycled water utilised in the production process, making it one of the only products in its category that is carbon-neutral from cradle to grave. Cosentino recently unveiled new Dekton ranges, Kraftizen and Onirika, that are stunningly contemporary: Kraftizen is made up of beautifully rich, deep hues inspired by traditional Venetian stucco, Onirika showcases a handful of dramatic dreamlike veins.
Silestone is a brilliant option for bathroom worktops, wash basins, shower trays, and more. It is perfect for wet rooms but also a smart choice for the environment: manufactured with HybriQ+ technology, it is a high-performance blend of premium minerals in a low-silica formulation created using 99% recycled water and 100% renewable energy. There is zero water waste in the manufacturing process, and a minimum of 20% recycled raw materials are used in its composition, so you get high performance combined with sustainability.
No matter your aesthetic, Silestone is available in a colour and finish to suit. The newest range, Ethereal, comes in four beautiful colours and is perfect for neutral spaces. In contrast, Sunlit Days is a collection designed for those not afraid of colour in their homes. Like Dekton, Silestone also has high resistance to stains, scratches and impact.
