Discover the beauty of Sapienstone in interior design.
Sapienstone Grand Antique worktops quickly become essential for London homeowners who crave innovative designs with modern surfaces. These worktops offer a unique combination of old-age beauty and durability, making them perfect for kitchens, bathrooms, and commercial spaces. Not only do they provide an elegant aesthetic, but they also come with the added benefit of being incredibly easy to maintain.
One of the standout features of a Sapienstone Grand Antique worktop is the seamless flow between surfaces. This means that you can use them not only as worktops but also as splashbacks or even wall cladding. Our skilled stonemasons will follow the veins between the worktops and walls, resulting in a cohesive look that elevates any space in which you apply it.
Another unique Sapienstone feature is its Indoor air quality and hygienic bacteriostatic protection. This is thanks to the inherent antibacterial properties of sintered ceramic stone. So forget about sealing marble or granite with toxic chemicals or worrying about natural stone worktops deteriorating over time. As a sintered porcelain worktop, Sapienstone is impermeable to liquids and bacteria, meaning it will remain hygienic for years.
Ample format marble effect worktops
When it comes to choosing the perfect worktop for your kitchen, there are a plethora of options available in the market. However, three materials that have been gaining popularity in recent years are Sapienstone, Dekton, and Porcelain. While all three offer durability and easy maintenance, what sets them apart is their unique features and qualities.
Its UV resistance is one feature that sets Sapienstone apart from materials such as quartz. This makes it ideal for outdoor kitchens or areas exposed to direct sunlight, as it won’t fade or discolour over time.
How does Sapienstone Compare?
Sapienstone vs Neolith
Sapienstone and Neolith are both popular brands of porcelain worktops, but they have some differences. Sapienstone is the only brand on the market that offers induction cookers in the same colour as its kitchen worktops, creating a seamless look. In addition, Sapienstone is one of two brands offering full-body vein porcelain technology.
On the other hand, Neolith is a lightweight sintered stone material that combines high-performance qualities with high-definition detail. Sintered stone slabs from Neolith and Sapienstone result from compressing and fusing raw materials at high pressure and high temperature, which makes them highly durable.
Sapienstone vs Dekton
Sapienstone and Dekton are two different brands of ultra-compact porcelain worktops. Sapienstone offers a range of fifty colours and patterns, with slab sizes of 320 x 160 cm and 320 x 150 cm, but its primary selling point are the full-body veining and its induction cookers that match the colour of its worktops.
Dekton, conversely, comprises a blend of quartz, porcelain and glass, making it highly resistant to scratches, stains and heat. Dekton also offers a wide range of colours and finishes, and it is available in large format slabs measuring 320 x 144 cm. Moreover, Whist Sapienstone offers 6 mm, 12 mm and 20 mm thicknesses, and Dekton offers additional thicknesses of 4 mm, 8 mm and 30 mm.
Sapienstone vs Silestone
Sapienstone and Silestone are both popular brands of composite worktops. Sapienstone is known for its induction cookers and 300 Celsius heat resistance, matching the colour of its worktops and allowing it to drag hot pans and pots across the surface. In contrast, Silestone is known for its higher impact resistance and easy fabrication.
Silestone is a blend of natural quartz and other raw materials made with HybriQ Technology, making it extremely hard and resistant to scratches, stains and heat. Sapienstone, on the other hand, comprises natural clays and porcelain, which makes it more lightweight than Silestone. Sapienstone is also more resistant to staining than Silestone, and it offers 100% UV ray protection making it outdoors suitable.
