Why Concrete Oyster is the perfect material for stone kitchen worktops?
To this day, quartz remains one of our best-selling stone worktops products. It is nearly infallible, defined by near-indestructible properties, easy cleaning & maintenance, but above all exceptional beauty. Quartz is modern, stylish, sleek and perfectly slots into any environment, as though it naturally belongs there.
The light grey Concrete Oyster quartz worktops are incredibly sturdy and resistant to abrasion, cutting, staining and general wear and tear that impact other, weaker materials, like wood or laminate worktops. You may cut vegetables, fruit or meat directly on a quartz surface, forgoing the need for chopping boards. Even the sharpest of blades won’t scratch this durable stone.
The sleek quartz kitchen worktops are also completely waterproof. Since they are man-made products, they are imbued during the production process with special resins and agents that prevent all water absorption. Therefore, even if you leave a coffee, wine, grease or water spill over night, the worktop won’t soak any of it up, leaving the colour and pristine shine entirely unharmed.
Discolouration, chipping, and warping aren’t a threat to blemished & concrete effect Concrete Oyster kitchen quartz worktops. These are products blessed with incredible longevity and unmatched durability. In essence, these tops are a one-off purchase that lasts a lifetime.

What makes Concrete Oyster so unique?
Product colour description:
The light grey colour of Concrete Oyster by Nile Quartz Surfaces is without a doubt the most frequently purchased hue in our collection. This is today’s trend, after all. Grey spaces no longer evoke the feeling of industrial melancholy, instead elements like light grey kitchen worktops are implemented into modern architecture because they represent novelty and minimalism. A highly sought-out, attractive colour that instantly becomes the heart of any setting. And because of its deemed universality, it pairs with almost every type of cabinet, from white gloss, through to black matte or brown, classic raw wood.
Material structure & composition:
The thicker blemishes and occasional veins of Concrete Oyster spread throughout the surface in an irregular manner. The blemished surface creates a stunning, organic-looking composition reminiscent of polished marble. Finally, the worktop can brim with life which emanates from the depths of the intricate veins. This wild, untamed and unpredictable appearance will be ideal for lovers of natural stone elements, complementing other raw materials like wood, metal or glass.
Material recommended for:
- Modern kitchens,
- Kitchen islands,
- Waterfall/mitred side panels.
The concrete effect of Concrete Oyster is a one-of-a-kind composition. No other worktop material on the market (apart from concrete itself), can replicate and mimic the look of concrete as well as stone worktops. The usually greyish surface, with a worn feel and irregular pockmark effect make for a stunning foreground in contemporary kitchens that hold a raw, industrial, almost metallic vibe.
Material recommended for:
- Contemporary, minimalistic designs,
- Rough, industrial looking interiors,
- Kitchen islands + downstands.
What textures/finishes is this product supplied in?
The light grey Concrete Oyster by Nile Quartz Surfaces is available in the ‘honed’ finish. This means a rugged texture with minute lumps – like the slated, treaded floor in a town-centre plaza, abraded by a host of feet over decades. Or stone on the riverbed, eroded, but not entirely polished. The honed texture is applied to products, like the one above, in order to imbue them with an organic quality. Many of our customers purchase stone worktops in honed, to complement other ‘raw’ elements in their kitchen, like timber, slate etc.
