Without question, the biggest trend in surfaces this year has been the rise of sintered stone. We’ve been counseling general contractors, interior designers and architects on this unique surface for the past few years and have hosted numerous design workshops on the topic.
Formed by intense high heat, sintered stone is very durable and eco-friendly. Equally impressive as a counter surface or wall cladding both indoors and out, sintered stone can be cut down to about 1 cm thickness.
We hope you got to see our Designing Spaces segment, which aired last week on Lifetime. It airs again this Thursday at 7:30 a.m., and then goes to syndication! We’re proud to showcase the beauty of mother nature, and thank the Marble Institute of America and Building Stone Institute (MIA+BSI: The Natural Stone Institute) for selecting ROCKin’teriors to represent our industry.
ROCKin’teriors once again served as a training site for area design professionals in June. The National Kitchen & Bath Association Eastern Carolina Chapter held its continuing education course on marble use in kitchens at ROCKin’teriors, with instruction by our friend Rob Bacon of Daltile. With numerous training workshops held in our space in recent months, ROCKin’teriors University is now in session! We’re delighted to help our friends in architecture and interior design and encourage you to stop to see what’s happening in our workshop and design studio.
