You may be familiar with the name Silestone, and be aware of its status in the realm of quartz worktops. However, you perhaps aren’t aware of the exact qualities that make this brand so popular. Discover why so many people choose Silestone worktops for their kitchens and how they can help to enhance your kitchen, whatever your style.
What are Silestone worktops?
Silestone is an extremely durable material which is made from 90% natural quartz. These beautiful worktops provide so much more than a stunning aesthetic and are a practical choice for any home. In addition to being used in kitchen worktops, Silestone is often used in bathrooms, and as a material for floors and wall cladding. As a stain-resistant material, it provides the perfect protection for a variety of surfaces, which is great news for mess-makers and family homes.
What kind of stains do Silestone worktops avoid?
Porous worktops can be delicate when it comes to what kind of liquids can stain them. However, as a non-porous material, Silestone avoids stains that certain other worktops can’t. This means that if you accidentally spill red wine, vinegar, coffee, or lemon juice onto your Silestone worktop, you don’t need to worry about these liquids staining it. Besides the usual liquids associated with kitchens, these worktops are also resistant to makeup stains which is a more common problem than you may think.
Prepare for impact!
When you have a busy family home, the last thing you want to be worrying about is your brand-new surfaces being knocked and permanently damaged. Silestone worktops are impact-resistant, which means that it can withstand the everyday knocks and scrapes of a busy kitchen. Couple this with the fact Silestone kitchen worktops are stain-proof for many of the most common spillages, and you have an amazing, durable product.
There’s more to Silestone than incredible style
It’s amazing just how innovative Silestone worktops really are. You might think that worktops are pretty much all the same besides perhaps differing in colour and overall style. Well, you’d be very wrong indeed! Of course, these factors are important but there are other things to consider too. Thickness, for example, is an essential consideration. Silestone is available in 1.2cm, 2cm, and 3cm.

Alternatively, our template and fit team can bring samples for you to peruse while they get on with measuring up for the template.
