New Sensa granite and quartzite colours arrive in the United Kingdom.

The Sensa Granite range by Cosentino has become an increasingly noticeable player in the scene of natural stones. This recognition is primarily attributed to the five new magnificent additions to its colour palette: Siberia, Nilo, Platino, Vancouver, and Silver Grey. These colours upgrade Sensa Granite’s visual aesthetics and represent the iconic harmony of natural granite and quartzite. 

The exciting revamp of the range introduces four quartzites and one granite, all sourced from the abundant quarries of Brazil. Carefully selected for their unique composition and commendable resistance to stains, these stones offer pleasing aesthetics and lasting durability.

Siberia Granite: The Perfect Choice for Creating a Cool Ambiance

Imagine a granite that reflects the crystalline beauty of nature and offers durability that’s top-notch at the same time. That’s precisely what Sensa Nilo is all about. Produced by Cosentino, a global leader in natural stone surfaces, this granite variant boasts an array of stunning hues, ranging from deep blacks to sparkling whites, set against an ice-blue backdrop.

Each slab is, indeed, a tribute to the sublime beauty of Mother Nature. But the appeal of Sensa Nilo isn’t restricted to its aesthetic appeal alone. This granite variety stands out for its performance, too. It’s highly resistant to stains, scratches, and heat, making it extremely durable. However, the standout feature is the Sensa by Cosentino warranty. That’s right, every Sensa Nilo slab comes with a 15-year certified warranty, offering you even more confidence in your purchase. 

What’s more, Sensa Nilo is fashioned with Senguard NK protection, which is unique to Sensa products. This innovative technology enhances the stone’s ability to repel liquids such as water and oil, thereby preventing damage and preserving the stone’s natural beauty for extended periods. So, no more worrying about those accidental spills! 

A part of the Sensa Exotic Collection, Nilo goes exceptionally well with several styles, whether a contemporary setting, a rustic charm, or a classic elegance design. You can use it for kitchen worktops, islands, backsplashes, and even flooring. The possibilities are indeed endless! 


Sensa Vancouver Grey Quartzite

Let’s shift our focus to Sensa Vancouver quartzite. Much like the snowy expanse of Siberia, this quartzite showcases a stunning white backdrop, reflecting the purity of freshly fallen snow. The surface is intermittently adorned with minute black speckles that only serve to enhance its inherent allure. 

No less striking is the Sensa Nilo quartzite. This earthy treasure presents an enticing spectacle with its numerous veins. Swathed in hues that dwell somewhere between the brightness of dove grey and the intense depth of dramatic black, the veined aesthetic is another option you may want to consider for your home. 

Consider incorporating the Sensa Platino Natural Quartzite into your living spaces. This stone garners admiration for its striking mineral formations, reminiscent of the fluidity of ocean waves flowing through its veins.

The stone’s finish mirrors the tactile, soft allure of leather, providing a matte texture that invites touch. The serene energy it brings lends a balanced ambience to whichever indoor area it graces. 

Back to Sensa Vancouver quartzite, this richly textured stone, with its uneven veining pattern, paints a canvas of tranquil beauty. Noteworthy are its subtle paths that appear to be hand-painted, inviting a tactile exploration of its surface.

You’ll find Sensa Vancouver quartzite available in both 20 mm and 30 mm thicknesses, with two distinct finishes from which to choose. It is a testament to its adaptability to a myriad of design preferences.

Dive into the Artistic Finishes of Cosentino Sensa Stones

Taking artistry to the next level, Cosentino brings a specially curated palette of finishes for their Sensa stones. Charming you with their fine detailing, these finishes not only uplift the natural aesthetics of the stones but also provide superior durability and longevity. 

If it is a sublime spectacle you are after, the ‘Polished’ option is your pick. It gives a high-gloss surface that mirrors the stone’s intricate design while offering an ultrasmooth touch. This finish is ideal for those wanting a sleek, modern look, reflecting light to add a sense of spaciousness to compact spaces. 

On the other hand, the ‘Leather’ finish offers the Sensa stone a spectacular velvety touch, emanating a muted elegance that appeals to lovers of minimalist designs.

With its warm, homely feel, the Leather finish is an excellent choice for cosy and inviting spaces. It also hides fingerprints and smudges, offering a practical yet stylish solution.  In short, whether your design tastes lean towards the flamboyantly glossy or the subtly elegant, Cosentino’s Sensa stones promise an unparalleled finish for every aesthetic preference.


  • Mirage: a highly glossy natural stone worktop surface. It can brighten up spaces when you use it on light-coloured granite countertops.
  • Leather: It has a soft matt stone surface finish when you touch it.


Finally, let’s turn our attention towards the Sensa Silver Grey Granite. It is a stone that truly distinguishes itself, not only through its commendable durability but also through its homogenous aesthetic appeal. Woven throughout the rich grey surface, you’ll find striking white veins. They stretch horizontally across the stone, infusing warmth and tranquillity into any space, from bustling kitchens to serene bathrooms.

One of the temptations of Sensa Silver Grey Granite worktops is the ability to tailor them to your unique tastes. They’re available in two thicknesses – 20mm and 30mm. Regardless of the option, you can rest assured that both are superbly suited to all interior styles, whether a modern minimalist kitchen or a classic, rustic living room.

To further heighten this versatility, Sensa also offers a choice of finishes. Choose from the glamorous Mirage, which imparts a high-shine finish, or opt for the subtly textured Leather finish, which provides a tactile and understated appeal at home in traditional and contemporary designs.

Protecting your Sensa granite and Sensa quartzite surfaces

This paragraph discusses the durability of Sensa worktops

Although Sensa stones are practically maintenance-free, there are a few things to remember:

  • Cleaning your Sensa worktops: You can use soap and warm water to clean your kitchen worktop. But, you may prefer to use a mild household cleaner. Specifically, ensure you don’t use abrasive products on Sensa surfaces.

  • Scratches: Granites and quartzites are perfect for everyday use. However, we recommend you use a trivet to protect it.

  • Thermal shock: quartzite and granite are among Earth’s most potent minerals. Despite this, we recommend using a mat when placing hot objects in the oven. It avoids drastic changes in temperature on your granite and quartzite worktops.
