Silestone countertops endow your home with classiness, elegance and timeless beauty. The natural quartz content of Silestone gives your kitchen the radiance and solid feel only natural stone can provide at comparatively lesser cost but with a more durable material.

Silestone provides the necessary combination of strength and beauty to any surface, be it in your home or office.

Advantages of using Silestone Natural Quartz

Silestone can be used for any surfacing application such as kitchen countertops, island tops, bathroom vanities, tub and shower surrounds, kitchen backsplashes, walls, wet bars, tabletops, desktops, even floors!

The quartz in Silestone makes it naturally scratch-resistant. There are only three other natural minerals harder than quartz – diamond, sapphire and topaz. A Silestone countertop is therefore impervious to simple knife scratches unlike other kitchen laminate or solid countertops.

Due to its non-porous characteristic Silestone is highly resistant to stains from food spills and other household products.

Silestone can withstand limited exposure to heat without burning or scorching. However, it is always good practice to always use trivets when placing hot items on any surface to avoid the risk of thermal shock.

Compared to granite, Silestone has four times the strength of granite. It is less susceptible to chipping and cracking.

Silestone is relatively maintenance free compared to other hard surface countertops.

Silestone is available in a wide selection of uniform and consistent colors from neutral hues to dazzling, bright colors. This ensures that whatever color you prefer you do not have to forego having Silestone material to suit your style or taste.

The natural properties of Silestone make it an ideal material for kitchen and bathroom surfaces and even flooring in the home or office.

There are also knobs, switch plates and handles made of Silestone natural quartz that can perfectly complement your kitchen or bathroom surfaces.

The beauty and elegance of silestone will certainly provide you with a durable, sturdy and an almost wear-and-tear free kitchen countertop that is very easy to maintain.
