Richly Textured & High-Performance Silestone Countertops

Why Silestone?

With remarkable characteristics, solid surface materials, and increasingly grabbing homeowners’ attention to remodel their kitchens and bathrooms, is Silestone. Silestone is the only quartz surface having decades of warranty. A wide range of textures and colors can be produced with Silestone, facilitating the homeowners to embellish their kitchen spaces in a unique way. Silestone is also used in an array of applications including flooring, backsplashes and wall siding.

  • Being non-porous, Silestone surface resists scratching and staining caused by common kitchen elements like coffee, lemon juice, wine and other everyday products.
  • Being made from one of the hardest natural stones i.e. quartz, Silestone can better resist shocks and pressure.
  • Silestone countertops are highly durable with as long as 25 years of warranty.
  • Manufactured in over 100 colors, several textures, and different formats, Silestone presents high versatility to be fitted to any requirement.

What is Silestone?

Silestone is made up of naturally found quartz and other raw materials that are equally resilient and hard as quartz. The characteristics of its components synergize to create an ideal sturdy surface for countertops. Though Silestone is formed from a natural stone, its composition can be altered with various raw materials in order to enhance its durability and generate multiple design possibilities. In general, since Silestone is mainly composed of quartz, it produces certain characteristics on its surface that are unmatched with other solid surface countertops.

The Cost of Silestone Countertops.

The average prices of Silestone lay in the range of $40 to $75 per square foot. This cost is almost similar to that of quartz marble countertops, which cost, on average, $45 to $95 per square foot.

Advantages of Siltstone

Kitchens and bathrooms are the two most used spaces in any home and need products and materials that can ensure an extended longevity. Silestone exhibits exclusive qualities that contribute to the appearance, durability, hygiene, and safety of your kitchens and bathrooms. Along with high durability, Silestone also provides a stunning look, incredibly smooth finishing and a feel of natural stone. Available in an infinite number of colors, patterns, and textures, you can easily get an ideal countertop for your kitchen décor.

Due to its non-porous nature, Silestone successfully resists staining, scratches, and acids. Unlike laminates and other solid surfaces, Silestone is also able to resist heat and scorching. It has a great ability to bear limited heat exposure without getting burnt or catching fire. Even the fire of a lit match won’t damage the Siltstone countertop. Being non-porous also contributes towards its ability to get least affected by water, and resist bacteria, thus it is an ideal choice for bathrooms as well.

Silestone is very easy to maintain and needs only simple daily cleaning; however, don’t use any harsh chemical or bleachers onto surfaces and always use trivets to place heated pans and hot objects, to prolong countertop’s life.

Comparing Silestone & Granite Countertops

Many homeowners find it difficult to determine what makes the best choice between Silestone and granite countertops. Read below to make your decision.

  • Both granite and Silestone countertops offer lustrous appearance and high durability; however, due to crystallized nature of granite, small fissures and spaces are there, making it porous to absorb water, cause staining and help bacterial growth, unless sealed properly. Silestone countertops have non-porous texture, making them non-absorbent to liquids and highly resistant to bacteria.
  • n terms of cost, Silestone is rather cheaper than granite, with cost as low as $40 to $100 per square foot, as compared to granite’s $45 to $120 per square foot.
  • Granite necessitates yearly sealing and occasional maintenance due to its porous nature, while Silestone only needs minimal daily cleaning to avoid any long term maintenance.

If you want a traditional, unique look and can bear occasional maintenance cost, granite is probably a good option. If your requirements include modern look, safety, durability and least maintenance, Silestone is a better option we suggest.
