We are pleased to announce that R.O surfaces have been appointed the main supplier of Laminam, Coverlam and Neolith for a major kitchen and bathroom shop in Newcastle. we love working with other studios and showrooms and bringing our quality to them.

We predict more of the Calacatta and marble effect quartz worktops this year but after visiting the ceramic and natural stone shows late last year that blues, greens and golds will also be on-trend this year. Like the photo above.

We've just returned from a incredible trip to Italy where we visited the Marmo show in Verona and the Cersaie show in Bologna. We were invited out there as guests of one of our suppliers and it was amazing!

The shows let us see what the rest of the world is doing with Granite, porcelain and quartz. Its actually amazing what can be done with the right machines and a little imagination. Ive posted a picture of something from the show below which blew my mind!!!!!!! We've invested in a few little machines too to help with production

Anyway whilst ive been away the team has been very busy with installations from the factory with Dekton, Laminam and Neolith all flying out as the ceramic / Porcelain / sintered stone market show no sign of slowing down and is not as popular as ever, we have some stunning jobs to show you with it so keep a eye on our facebook page to see them when they pop up click HERE and like our page to keep up to date with us.

Our natural stone and quartz side has been going as well with Silestone, Caeserstone and our own brands all topping the bill this month.

We love stone and after our trip we love what can be done with it!

If you have a worktop project coming up that you would like to discuss we would gladly have a sit down and advise you on whats best for your needs

When it comes to choosing worktops there are so many how do you choose????

Granite, quartz (Silestone,Cambria,Caesarstone to name a few), porcelain, ceramics and sintered stones (Dekton, Laminam, Neolith,lapitec), Solid surfaces (Corian, Hanex, Starton, LG Hi-Macs) then marbles and quartzites. Although we have policies on selling marble to customers as worktops. Here at R.O Surfaces, we like to educate our customers about the materials so if a customer wants marble and hasn't had marble previous we would explain to them what will happen to the worktops over time, how they will age and how they can etch. Even with the best sealers in the world a marble will etch which is different from a stain!

The same with all our worktops we explain how to look after them and care for them. Corian and the other solid surfaces are to be looked after a little different to stone as with Corian being an acrlyic you can use a scouring pad and sandpapers on the face of it if you ever get stubborn stains whereas stones will simply require a good cleaner such as Cif or Barkeepers Friend to remove stubborn marks

We have installed granite worktops in thousands of homes across the Newcastle upon tyne area and Northumberland and (touch wood) we havnt had a stain on a top we couldnt remove but we are also lucky enough that all of our customers have followed our care instructions!!

Our Showroom is jam-packed with all of our sample worktops and tiles for you to browse we are open 9-5 every weekday and 9-2 on a Saturday we always have someone on hand to give you some advice and point you in the right direction. We may not be the cheapest around but we pride ourselves on our craftsmanship and have gained an excellent reputation which we are very proud of. We don't use inferior products and we can stand behind our products 100%. a quote we heard a very long time ago that has stuck with us is "quality will be remembered long after the price is forgotten"

Last week weve been installing in Cheser le street with some stunning Dekton Trilium, Benton in Newcastle Upon Tyne with some Silestone and some more Dekton Trillium, a huge job in Gosforth with some Caeserstone and Whickham with a stunning Corian Island with drop-down legs and integrated Corian sink,

Check out this Laminam Invisible white. This Porcelain worktop or tile emulates the natural stone perfectly

It comes in a variety of thicknesses Perfect for Bathrooms in a tile format, worktops or facades. We are in the process of making some furniture with this and similar materials and we can't wait to showcase them to you!

Laminam is a name you can trust as they have over 40 years in the Ceramic and porcelain industry. Laminam was the first ever ultra-large format tile so they have pioneered this technology.

Laminam has 125 surfaces within 14 different series so there will be something for everybody's taste. The industrial range does very well as does the natural collection. R.O Surfaces is proud to partner with companies such as Laminam as we know they are at the forefront of the market. Laminam is another material R.O Surfaces works with on a regular basis we are one of the very few Laminam fabricators in the North East of England in and around Newcastle Upon Tyne and Northumberland. Laminam adds to our already extensive range of ceramics/porcelains/sintered stone along with our Dekton, Neolith and Lapitec

Granite and quartz has the lion share of the worktop market but the Porcelains are quickly catching up with it and we think in time it will dominate the market

We would love to work with your for you worktop/kitchen projects so if you have something in mind pop into our showroom R.O Studio, Unit 2, Foundry Park, Market Lane, Swalwell, NE16 3DS
