What is Dekton?

Dekton Kelya

Dekton is the brand name given by Spanish countertop manufacturer Cosentino to their new ultra-dense material used for kitchen, bathroom, and workspace countertops.  Made from a mix of porcelain, glass and minerals, it is an innovative, ultra-compact surface that offers endless design possibilities for outdoor and indoor spaces.

The slimline composite material comes in large sheets which allows for greater design scope and installation without cuts or joins. Available in a wide range of finishes, there are over 40+ colours available which mimic the look of natural stones and marble. It is also wear, scratch & heat resistant.

In addition to Dekton’s technical excellence and design innovation, the company provides a 25-year warranty on all its surfaces giving you peace of mind when selecting this product. Perfect as a low maintenance benchtop solution, Dekton is easy to clean with hot, soapy water.

Retreat Design has used Dekton for several of our kitchen and bathroom projects and can help you select the right finish to enhance your project.
