Quartz is distinctly on-trend at the moment. Its high durability and its stain and heat resistant properties make it a popular choice for hard-working areas like the kitchen.
Quartz is fully sealed meaning you don't have to worry about spills or exposure to heat. It also means that dirt and germs can be easily wiped away with a gentle antibacterial cleanser.
There are numerous colours to choose from, including finishes that emulate natural stone. The 'Hypernature' trend is the use of patterns you'd find in nature. For instance, a marble look finish can be achieved with quartz but without the disadvantages of a more porous stone.
Cosentino's Silestone range is a hybrid of quartz and recycled materials. Silestone has recently introduced HybriQ+® technology. HybriQ+® technology has been created by the brand to help reduce the environmental impact of renovating your home. There is a minimum of 20% recycled material (such as glass) in their products and you can choose from three surface finishes; polished, suede and volcano.
Consentino is also making the process far more environmentally friendly. By using recycled water, materials and renewable energy, Cosentino is offsetting the carbon footprint of their products. You can find out more about this and their new Sunlit Days collection here.
Laura Davie, Marketing Manager at Cosentino UK advises that 'as homeowners seek out eco-friendly products more than ever before, this new technology from Silestone is the start of a new era of quartz manufacturers and the focus should be on helping reduce the impact on our planet.'
