Accessing the very latest products and look is key to ensuring a truly up-to-date kitchen and Collaroy Kitchen Centre ensures it is abreast of all new developments for clients.

COVERED. learned more about the latest innovation in benchtops – often the centerpiece of any new or renovated kitchen.

The benchtop in a kitchen or bathroom can really set the style for the whole room and even the whole floor of the house. It is often the first thing that you see when you enter, the first thing you run your hand across, and the very thing that gets the most use.

So, it is vital that customers not only get the look they are after but that they choose a high-quality product that can match the daily demands of family life and stand the test of time. Now a new product is on offer promising greater choice and durability – Neolith.

Helle Olsen, who owns the business with her husband John, says they ensure they are always up-to-date on kitchen and bathroom innovations. “Designers from Collaroy Kitchen Centre attend the biennial International Kitchen Exhibition ‘EuroCucina’ in Milan to see the latest trends in design, colours and materials, technological innovations and much more,” she explains.

Neolith has hit the market promising great appeal and endurance. This sintered stone product is 100 per cent natural with more than 50 per cent of any Neolith slab being made up of recycled raw materials. It is easy to clean as well as being scratch resistant, stain resistant, heat resistant, hygienic and waterproof with an absorption level near zero.


This surface is made up of natural materials like clays, feldspar, silica and mineral oxides and gets its colours from natural pigments that do not fade over time or exposure to direct sunlight.

One of the characteristics that make Neolith so appealing is just how thin it is, coming in thicknesses of 3,6,12 and 20mm. For the high traffic surface of kitchen benchtops, a thickness of 12mm is recommended.

Available in larger formats, Neolith allows greater uniformity and continuity in different spaces for easier handling and minimizes the number of joints required, allowing for a smoother and more aesthetic finish.

There are a variety of finishes including Satin, Silk, Polished and Riverwashed and an array of styles ranging from plain block colours like Arctic White, Humo and Arena, to woodgrain and marble look tops, as well as a steel style finish, a copper effect and a polished concrete option.

Collaroy Kitchen Centre also offers a wide range of other alternative materials to choose from including:

  • Timber
  • Natural Stone
  • Manufactured Stone
  • Concrete
  • Polyurethane

The experienced staff at Collaroy Kitchen Centre can offer advice on the best surface and best finish for your kitchen ensuring you get the bespoke kitchen of your dreams.
