Ceramic kitchen worktops – the future of contemporary kitchens

Ceramic kitchen worktops are becoming increasingly popular due to their versatility and great hygienic properties. Ceramic worktops come in an array of colours and textures, so there is plenty of variety to choose from if you’re keen to use your new purchase to complement a particular style or theme in your kitchen. Typically harder than both Granite and Quartz, ceramic creates one of the only work surfaces that can be supplied at a 10mm thickness, so if you are not a fan of a large and bulky look, a ceramic worktop will offer you the durability you need in a much more refined and modern-looking surface.

Heat and flame resistant ceramic worktops

Although ceramic kitchen worktops are formed with natural materials, ceramic is in fact a man-made material and is manufactured by compressing a mixture of clay, sand, feldspar and other natural components together. Once the mixture is pressed, it’s then baked in an extremely hot oven, which can reach temperatures of over a thousand degrees. This process ensures that ceramic worktops are tremendously heat and flame resistant – hot pans will cause no damage to a ceramic worktop and it is even possible to expose the surface to a blowtorch without causing any damage whatsoever.

Through choosing ceramic worktops, it is also possible to create sinks with a seamless finish, making this range a very sanitary option, as it will ensure there are no joints to allow bacteria to grow and fester.
