Silestone kitchen worktops are now used all over the world. The combination of advanced technology and exceptional materials means their kitchen and bathroom surfaces really stand out from the crowd. But what is Silestone, and are their natural quartz countertops right for you?
We’ve got all the information and advice you need before buying a Silestone worktop right here! To find out more about their brand and the benefits of their products, be sure to keep reading.
Silestone is a material manufactured mainly from natural quartz crystals. It’s the perfect material to use in worktops, but it’s very versatile and can be used for floors, shower trays, and even sinks.
Silestone is manufactured by the Cosentino Group, an Italian company originally launched in 1940 by Eduarda and Eduardo Cosentino. The company quickly began to grow, and it was passed to brothers Francisco Martínez-Cosentino Justo and Eduardo Martínez-Cosentino.
In 1990, Cosentino began an ambitious project where a revolutionary factory was constructed, and the first Silestone products were created. After only 5 years, Silestone became a roaring success in the worktops sector and has become the brand’s leading product.
It’s now recognised worldwide as a leading quartz brand, and in 2015 it celebrated its 25th anniversary.
One of Silestone’s most attractive characteristics is the fact that it’s nonporous. This means it’s spill and stain-resistant, which makes it so ideal for kitchens and bathrooms.
Additionally, because quartz is the toughest mineral available, Silestone worktops have high resistance to acid as well, so you don’t need to worry about coffee, wine, or even vinegar spills.
Silestone kitchen and bathroom worktops are also scratch-resistant, thanks to their tough construction so that you can enjoy newer looking countertops for longer.
The non-porous nature of Silestone worktops is one of the many benefits that makes them so popular. Essentially, a porous surface has pores. These are microscopic holes that allow air and liquids in.
Therefore, non-porous means the opposite. Rather than having pores, Silestone kitchen and bathroom worktops have smooth and sealed surfaces so no air or liquids can penetrate them.
This means any water spills will simply bead up and roll off the Silestone surface, making it perfect for kitchen and bathroom spaces.
We all know that hygiene is important when preparing or serving food, so you’ll be pleased to know that each Silestone worktop is incredibly hygienic. The hard surface is resistant to viruses and bacteria, so you can prep and cook your food worry-free.
Another amazing benefit of Silestone quartz kitchen worktops is that they come in a huge variety of colours, ranging from classic whites and creams to chic black, red and brown.
You can even pick a different finished texture, too, choose from suede, volcano, or polished. The colour possibilities are endless, so you’re sure to find the perfect Silestone worktop for your home.
Silestone is also very low maintenance, and it’s easy to maintain. It mimics the stunning aesthetic of natural stone such as marble and granite, but it doesn’t come with the same high maintenance nature.
Because of its non-porous surface, Silestone kitchen and bathroom worktops don’t need sealing or any special care. Simply use a soft, clean cloth and gentle detergent to wipe it over after each use.
There’s no need to scrub the surface hard, and you’ll need to ensure that you don’t use any harsh detergents as these could fade the design.
Thanks to its tough construction, your Silestone bathroom or kitchen worktop will be impact-resistant, so you’ll be able to use any object in the kitchen without worrying about damaging your new worktop.
If you want to transform your kitchen into a high-end and contemporary space without time-consuming maintenance, Silestone countertops will help you do just that.
The kitchen is the hub of the home, and Silestone worktops are the perfect option above other traditional materials such as natural stone or granite.
The versatility of Silestone is just one of the things that makes it so popular. Not only is it great for kitchens, but it can be used in bathrooms and even as flooring. Unlike solid wood flooring that can be very high maintenance, Silestone provides a modern look that’s easy to care for.
