Highly Scratch-resistant
Dekton is the most scratch resistant surface on the market and while the slip of a knife won’t damage Dekton, cutting boards are still recommended to protect your household utensils.

Resistant to stains
While other surfaces are stain resistant, Dekton is completely Stain Proof. Even the most stubborn stains like wine, coffee, markers and rust can easily be removed from the surface. Since Dekton has extremely low porosity and contains no resins, it is chemical resistant. Drips or splashes of common household chemicals like bleach, drain cleaners or oven degreasers won’t harm Dekton.

Resistant to abrasion
Dekton is even more resistant to abrasion than granite making it the ideal surface for commercial applications and high traffic areas such as flooring. While other surfaces show wear over time, Dekton’s finish will last for the life of the product and never needs to be re-surfaced or re-finished.

Resistant to ice & thawing
Dekton’s low coefficient of thermal expansion makes it Thermal Shock proof from both extreme heat and extreme cold. It’s natural resistance to ice and thawing makes it perfect for use in even the coldest environments.

DEKTON come in three different thicknesses depending on application requirements, the desired design and effect, from 8 to 20 mm

High mechanical Resistance
With over 5 times the flexural strength of granite, Dekton can be installed in thinner material over greater spans allowing for up to a 12-inch unsupported overhang on worktops, islands and bartops. Dekton’s high compressive strength makes it an ideal material for walkways, pavers or driveways.

Non-porous
Dekton is non-porous and never needs to be sealed. It naturally prevents liquids and gasses from penetrating the surface, making it a low maintenance surface that is easier to clean.

Color Stability
The manufacturing process used to make Dekton allows us control the pigmentation and decoration of the material giving better color consistency from slab to slab and resulting in a long lasting product that will not fade over time. The surface you install today will maintain the same new appearance for the life of the product.

Dimensinoal Stability
Dekton is very consistent in both dimension and thickness throughout slab which minimizes the need for field corrections and allows for easy installation.

Resistan to hydrolysis
Dekton is highly resistant to hydrolysis

Non combustible material
Dekton is a noncombustible material and withstands high temperatures without burning, scroching or cracking.

Italian contemporary modern kitchen design Stosa City

stosa-city4

Welcome to the new City kitchen, a mix of vintage inspirations: design from the past interpreted with a contemporary take yielding an unconventional, creative style. A solid, decisive look, a kitchen that delights the eyes and is titillating to touch. Rough surfaces in Jeans oak, Brizzo oak, White oak or Sand paired with metal and sheet metal furniture, never-before-seen finishes like slate cement that evoke an industrial-style atmosphere.

stosa-city3

A design that works with traditional materials giving them a contemporary take. The “lpe” sheet metal hood gives a decided touch with strong personality.  The “Amico” metal shelf/pantry is a modern twist on 1950s style, yielding a “lived-in” feel. Flexible solutions like the “Amico” extendible, rotatable table which disappears, reappears and rotates based on your needs. There is more than one secret ingredient in City: choice materials and creative design.

Choosing a Modern Italian Kitchen: 5 Important Considerations

The kitchen is, without doubt, the most used room in the house: we have put together a few simple rules that we think you should take in consideration when you are choosing the kitchen that’s right for you, your family, your taste and your lifestyle.

1. Don’t rush. Consider different styles and layouts to find the one that enhances your home and reflects your way of life!

2.The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the house. It must be a safe place for you and your family, as well as needing to last a long time. It is a place where you will spend a large part of your day so remember this when planning it!

3.Beautiful but impossible kitchens? Do not choose a kitchen that looks fantastic, but is not practical. We all would love a Hollywood style kitchen with big islands or peninsulas where we can cook Christmas dinner for the whole family, but to use the space we have available in the best way we must put ergonomics and practical considerations above all else. Modern Italian Kitchen fits best when it comes to practical kitchens. Opt for a practical and convenient layout, do not create cramped spaces.

4.Very important Don’t underestimate small spaces. There are many solutions for making the best use of the space available. Kitchens for small spaces should be both attractive and practical. Don’t forget you can choose between a large range of modular kitchens that offer equipment and accessories inside the kitchen units and that will help you optimise the space and hide away the mess.

5.Don’t let other people make the decisions. Listen to their advice, but remember you are in charge. Your kitchen is for you and your family. What would you like? What are you looking to achieve in your new kitchen? Take on board all the advice but remember that the advantage of planning a modular kitchen is precisely the fact that it is made to measure. It is a dress made to fit your requirements and you can choose from thousands of options. So be bold, think of what you like and choose on the basis of what the kitchen means to you and your family in your everyday life.

Furnishing small kitchens and poorly lit areas

Space optimisation in the kitchen is very important and the modular kitchens offer various solutions for not sacrificing ergonomics and practical considerations.

When furnishing small spaces, the role of the kitchen designer can be very valuable: depending on how the kitchen will be used, he or she can help you to choose from a variety of space-saving solutions.

If you like to have guests round for dinner , but your home will not allow you to choose a table big enough to seat all your friends, you could for example opt for a fold-away table, which when required will provide all the extra places you need. To get a better idea view our dining tables collection or call us for and advice 01223 327463.

Cattelan-Convivium

Cattelan-Convivium is a clever table that will help you maximise the space.

If you haven’t got the classic storage closet in which to keep all your cleaning items, you could instead choose a kitchen with storage cabinets, to keep everything neat, tidy and close to hand.

When planning your kitchen, try to make sure there is enough space to move about easily: working in tight surroundings can be dangerous, as well as not being much fun.

If you dream of a kitchen with a peninsula or with a centre island, but the space is limited, there are a few ideas that allow the right compromise to be found, such as providing a snack counter for short breaks, where you can read emails or organise a little aperitif, separating the kitchen from the lounge in a practical way .

Practicality and aesthetics can also be provided by pull out storage units.Until a short while ago in kitchen design there were always unused spaces, even if just a few centimetres, that were covered by fillers and panels. Today these can be exploited with the pull out storage units that even in just 15 cm give us a useful compartment for storing jars and tins, or for keeping brooms and cleaning materials.

Corners too, usually hard to access can be made functional and practical by the use of corner units with pull out shelving ,that make even the most inconvenient areas much more accessible.

 If you have areas without much light. We have the solution!

For small and dark rooms the best colour is without doubt white, because it illuminates and reflects the light. Some may fear it is rather bland, but in actual fact it is anything but an uninspiring colour and offers various customisation. options. Choices can be made between warm or cold colours, woods with different grains, matt or gloss lacquered smooth surfaces, and many more solutions including matching with the worktop.

Take a look at our modular kitchens to find the space-saving solution that’s right for you! Come and visit our showroom where we will be happy to choose your dream kitchen. Our Cambridge showroom is open every day and the Stosa London Showroom is open for appointment only. Call us to book your appointment.

The new kitchen must-have. Quooker: the tap that immediately dispenses boiling water. Tap on the worktop, tank underneath. A 100% Dutch invention taking over the world.

You can choose between a separate boiling water tap with accompanying mixer tap, or the new Quooker Fusion: a single tap for hot, cold and boiling water. Ultra-safe, super-efficient and available in eight tap designs and three finishes.

And if you thought that the Quooker was wasteful, think again: the patented high-vacuum insulation ensures that the Quooker’s standby usage is just 3 pence a day. For even more efficiency, choose a COMBI tank, a single, amazingly economical way to produce both hot and boiling water.
