Silestone: General Information

A compound made of natural quartz, Silestone is incredibly hard and resilient. It is the one and only countertop surface made of quartz with bacteriostatic protection, giving it hygienic properties that are not to be found anywhere else on the market. Silestone is an excellent surface for kitchen countertops, bathrooms, floors, and wall cladding using the minimum number of joints. Additionally, it comes in a variety of different shades of colors, offering a number of decorative possibilities from a single kitchen countertop to projects throughout the home. Silestone is a great investment no matter which type of project you want to use it for.

Quartz is crystallized silicon dioxide (SiO2), which is usually white or transparent, although it can be found in other colors if it comes into contact with impurities during its formation. Because of its extreme hardness and resistance to acids, it is used to make a large variety of products that require precision and top-quality performance. This type of quartz forms the main component in Silestone boards.

The Color Palette of Silestone

First introduced 20 years ago in 12 original colors, Silestone has evolved its color palette over and over, leading to more than 50 color selections. Each color is carefully designed and formulated to be attractive and match the most current trends in fashion and style.

Silestone varies not only in hue, from the most subtle neutral shades to the rather brilliant and dynamic tones, but it has also reinvented its spectrum of patterns, from its solid, homogeneous patterns to its color selections filled with movement with various sized quartz gemstone particulates and other enhancement materials.

Why Choose Silestone Countertops?

In addition to its natural beauty, versatility, resistance to scratching and staining, and widespread availability, Silestone is maintenance-free. It doesn’t get much better than that! Silestone also does not need to be sealed due to its non-porous surface.

If that’s not enough, Silestone countertops will withstand limited exposure to heat without burning or scorching, and they have four times the flexural strength of granite, which lowers the risk of chipping and cracking during transportation and installation. Simply put, Silestone is incredibly durable – in fact, it comes with a limited 15-year manufacturer’s warranty.

“Although we have given this project a rating of 10 in all areas, we would like to give our thanks and appreciation to our designer Joel and installer Andrew (and crew) for the excellent job they did in remodeling our bath.  It was truly a pleasure working with them from beginning to end."
