What Is Sintered Stone?

Embarking on a kitchen redesign project is a very exciting endeavour, but one that requires a lot of research and planning before the first tile can be laid, so you know that you’ve spent your money wisely and will enjoy your new investment for years to come.
Material choice is a top consideration where your kitchen worktops are concerned and you’ll find you have a lot of options available to you, everything from granite and marble to quartz and natural stone. But there is one product out there that you may not have considered before - and that’s sintered stone countertops.
This type of stone is similar to quartz in that it’s made from a base of natural stone but, unlike quartz, it’s made from nothing but natural materials, which makes it very strong and durable… so absolutely perfect for use in the kitchen.
It’s vital that your worktops are very hard-wearing, especially if you do a lot of cooking at home, and sintered stone is very resistant to scratching and abrasion, as well as being resistant to high temperatures and high weight loads, so you won’t have to worry about it not being able to withstand heavy use.
Another plus point with sintered stone that makes it perfect for use in the kitchen is how hygienic the surface is. It doesn’t release any harmful substances, so you don’t have to worry about it coming into contact with food.
It’s also incredibly versatile and it can be used in other areas of your home, not just your worktops. It can serve as shelving and flooring, among other applications, so the only limit is your imagination!
