Neolith Worktop Guide
When it comes to worktops for your kitchen, you are going to find that you are presented with plenty of choices of materials.
Some of them you are likely to have heard of and some may not. Neolith worktops are not always the go-to choice but they actually have some benefits to choosing them.
To help you to understand more we have put together our guide to Neolith worktops, covering everything that you may need to know.
What is Neolith?
Neolith is known as a sintered surface. These types of surfaces are becoming incredibly popular with designers and architects as more and more is known and understood about the benefits to choosing this material for your kitchen worktop surface.
Neolith is made from natural and recyclable products, which is one of the reasons why they have become more popular. The most common elements of making any Neolith worktop or surface is using crushed stone, which is often why it can be referred to as Neolith stone.
Neolith is made during a process involving intense heat and pressure. Both of which come together to bond the elements, creating a strong and sturdy surface.
What are the benefits of a Neolith worktop?
Now you know a little more about Neolith worktops, let’s take a look at why they are such a good addition to your kitchen.
As we have already covered, the process of putting together the Neolith worktop means that it is strong and durable, an important consideration for any worktop or kitchen surface.
Not only this but it is also lightweight too. Neolith stone is resistant to high temperatures, which means that you don’t have to worry about burning the surface if it comes into contact with fire.
Neolith worktops are resistant to UV rays too and since the colour is 100% natural, it does not matter if it is exposed to sun or extreme temperature, the colour will always remain the same.
How do I clean a Neolith worktop?
Another benefit to Neolith worktops and Neolith stone surfaces is that they are also scratch resistant and easy to clean. In the most part, no food spillages should stain the surface of the Neolith worktop and nothing penetrates the worktop, making sure that it is clean and hygienic too.
If you do find that you have a spillage on your worktop, then you still should make an effort to clean it up. The good news is that Neolith worktops are easy to clean and you only need to use a damp cloth, rather than worrying about having to grab a specialised cleaner in order to keep it looking its best.
If the damp cloth is not quite doing the job, then you could use kitchen towel and a window cleaning spray as this will help to clean the mark off and keeping the surface looking shiny too.
What else can I use Neolith for?
Whilst the most common use for Neolith stone is to create Neolith worktops, the material is not just limited to this use. You can use Neolith for flooring, in your bathroom, as panelling, as cladding and as facades too.
All of which means that it is versatile and can come together to create a coordinated look to your home.
