A Feast for the Eyes

Neolith® on the menu for domestic kitchens

The kitchen has long been regarded as the heart of the home, a room in which we commune on a daily basis to eat, drink and socialise.

Delicately balancing aesthetics with performance is crucial. Worktops, splashbacks and floors should simultaneously achieve beauty of form while being able to handle the culinary tasks of everyday life, from breakfast through to dinner; each spill, splash and smudge, every chop, whack and roll.

Realising this balance, Neolith®, a market-leading brand of Sintered Stone surfaces, is a top choice for residential interior designers and fabricators. Particularly they praise the material for its ability to meet the various demands of a residential kitchen whilst maintaining its attractive style and integrity. It offers the dual-assurance of long-term value and durability.

Décor trends this year are not limited to a select few styles, offering welcome flexibility. Whether the aim is urban rustic or industrial, rich and dark or light and airy, a plethora of fashionable looks are featuring prominently in the domestic cooking space1.

Neolith’s patterns, inspired by a wide range of popular natural and manufactured materials, are capable of achieving all of these desirable motifs and more.
