Oslo by Cimstone Quartz
Oslo Quartz Material Description
Oslo is a dark grey quartz material that comes in a polished texture. It is supplied to Polish Granite by Cimstone company specialising in stone slab production.
Why Oslo 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 dark grey Oslo 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 gilttered & small grained Oslo 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 thicknesses are available for Oslo?
The slabs of Oslo by Cimstone are available in 20mm or 30mm thicknesses. This stone material depth is ideal for multiple applications. From big projects like kitchen worktops, paving, flooring & wall cladding to smaller installations of coffee tabletops, dining tables or windowsills. Surfaces of this depth are manufactured in bespoke fashion, tailor-made to complete even the most demanding projects.
What makes Oslo so unique?
Product colour description:
Dark grey tones of this Cimstone Oslo kitchen worktop material are synonymous with modernity and contemporary trends. Dark grey used to be associated with dull, stormy clouds or bland concrete, but for some reason, over the last decade, this hue really came to prominence as definition of trendiness. Whether you have white, cream, black, purple or even grey cabinets, this shade will suit them all. Dark grey worktops are all-embracing materials that slot perfectly into any environment, irrespective of surrounding kaleidoscope of lively colours.
Material structure & composition:
Oslo isn’t just spellbinding by itself, it is rendered even more unique thanks to the tiny (grain-sized) mirror-chips, that are uniformly cast across the surface. This glitter effect makes for a fantastic highlight in bright, open kitchens as the shimmers swim across the animated surface. Compared to large-mirror chips, which can be blinding & overwhelming, the glitter reflections are only subtle. Like sand on a noon stroll across the beach.
Material recommended for:
- Lit, bright & open kitchens,
- Bar tops & breakfast bars.
Small grains, a feature of this Oslo worktop product, add a stoney, rough effect to the smooth surface. It’s a fantastic way to pick a generally plain-coloured product without it appearing lifeless or lacking dimension. Our fine-grained materials are very popular due to their universality. Whether it’s your bathroom, kitchen, utility room or stairwell, this product may be applied to any home setting. Furthermore it masks signs of grime, mud or muck – perfect for those patio floors!
Material recommended for:
- Stairs & step cladding,
- Bathroom worktops & vanity tops,
- Utility room tops.
What textures/finishes is this product supplied in?
The dark grey Oslo by Cimstone can be supplied in a ‘polished’ texture. This means a scintillating gloss that beautifully reflects the light and highlights the true colours & pigments embedded within the product. The polished texture is one of the most popular surface finishes, mostly present among quartz worktops and granite worktops, although ceramic suppliers also adopt this finish for their stone slabs. These surfaces are easy to clean and prevent all liquid absorption.
