Designed to bear the brunt of busy family life, the kitchen materials are hard wearing and easy to clean. Thanks to specifying dozens of benchtop surfaces for design clients over the years, I knew from the get-go that Cosentino’s Dekton heat-resistant ultra-compact surface was just the ticket for both the island bench and cooktop area. Selecting a non-porous, stain-resistant surface like Dekton was a no brainer when it came to cladding our virtual feeding trough after having played the stain game on just about every surface imaginable over the last 20 years.
As teenage boys generally don’t want to waste time looking for cutting boards tucked away in cupboards and wiping up after themselves, a scratch-resistant benchtop became a number one priority for our kitchen redo. I should also confess here that the copious amounts of red wine consumed in this household at the best of times, let alone while enduring a pandemic and subsequent lockdowns, also influenced my decision on using Cosentino’s Dekton ultra-compact surface product in order to cut down on my OCD cleaning and stress levels.
