It had been a little over a month since I revealed our bright Modern Farmhouse kitchen. We are still finding our way around, getting comfortable, and putting things in their place. One thing that counldn’t been ignored is our Dekton Countertop.
What is Dekton Countertop?
Dekton is a man-made, unique blend of raw materials. It contains refined glass, enhanced porcelain and natural quartz. These materials are manufactured using technology that mimics the high pressure and high temperature process, which have taken thousands of years in nature.
There are countless advantages to using Dekton in your space. The best part is it’s CAREFREE! You read right, there is very little stress when it comes to this countertop. It is the perfect surface for my young family. We are full of spills, and commotion and inappropriate things on the countertop. The kitchen is the hub of our home, and we actually use it… hard.
- Will not crack under extreme heat or cold
- Resistant to scratching, scorching and burning
- Non-Porus and stain resistant
- UV resistant to prevent fading
- Available in a wide range of realistic colours and textures
- Suitable for a multiple applications, like counter, flooring, bathrooms, even siding, indoors and out!
The kitchen is the hub of our home, so I
wanted needed a surface that was durable, attractive, and above all timeless.
Choosing a Dekton Color
Dekton by Cosentino has many colours to choose from. However, they just introduced new styles for 2019, I was fortunate enough to have the option to choose from these palettes. I wanted something with white undertones and have always loved the classic look of Carrara marble. I was instantly drawn to Bergen from the Stonika collection. I could get the look I desired, without the softer and more porous version of its look-a-like.
Check out the colours Dekton has to offer by checking out their website, or visiting a local dealer.
Plus, the polish surface of the XGloss finish gives the kitchen the high end, ultra crisp and clean aesthetic I desired.
We are so happy with our Dekton Countertop from Cosentino. The countertop was templated and installed by Livingstone. I was so pleased with their service, very friendly and worked fast and efficiently.
Disclosure: Dekton by Cosentino provided me with product (installation not included) for my kitchen makeover. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
Amazing… Thank you share post
Hi! I’m about to press ‘go’ on installing the same Dekton worktop on my kitchen cabinets, island, utility room cabinets and maybe even the veneer as a splasback. Now that you’ve lived with yours in your BEAUTIFUL kitchen for a while, would you mind updating us on how it is going? Many thanks!
Hey Jane, it is going well. The ONLY negative I can say is it cold to the touch but otherwise perfect! You won’t be disappointed, especially for a worktop where accidents could happen, it is so durable.

Hello. We are remodeling our kitchen. Are you happy with the Bergen colored countertops?
Yes VERY happy. The only thing I can say is it is cold to the touch, but that’s small potatoes!
Hi Virginia…just wondering about the cost of this Dekton? Do you have any specifics on that? Or could you maybe give me somewhat of an idea of just the island even? Thanks!
Sorry I do not, it really varies depending on where you have it fabricated. The Home Depot offers it as well, so I’m sure you could get a basic square footage rate from there.

What color of white did you use for your kitchen cabinet to pair up with Dekton Bergen?
It is called Delicate White from PPG
We’re building a house and looking at Dekton for our kitchen counters/island. Have read a gazillion articles about it but hardly any reviews from actual users of the product. Writers often reference a Consumer Reports test in which the product cracked and chipped from objects being dropped from 2 feet onto the surface.
So, my question is: Have you found that it chips or cracks easily, particularly on edges and/or around sink edge?
No, I haven’t had any trouble. However, I no longer live in this home. My only complaint was that it is cold like to lean on, I put a tea towel down to put my arms on if they were bare. Otherwise, I loved everything about it!
