Countertops are an important aspect in every household. It ties the whole room together. Worktops conveniently allow us to place things and do work atop it. When picking out the right material for a kitchen countertop, we look into a few different aspects and as mentioned Silestone has managed to tick all the right boxes.
What is Silestone?
It is a combination of natural quartz and raw material that make the product durable and resilient. They provide a plethora of design and texture. The non-porous structure of the material seeks to give you the perfect countertop. It can be used for your kitchens, bathrooms and so on.
Features of Silestone countertops:
- The non-porous material does not absorb liquids which makes maintenance easy and makes the countertop durable.
- It is stain-resistant, which makes it very convenient. All you have to do is wipe down your counters regularly with a pH level balanced cleanser.
- It is scratch-resistant and non-slippery (convenient for bathrooms and/or washbasins)
- It also doesn’t facilitate the growth of bacteria or other viruses.
- It has over 90 different color choices and polished textures to combine to get the perfect countertop for your home.
Why have Silestone worktops gained so much popularity and what makes it stand out?
- You do not have to seal your countertops with Silestone: Most oftentimes, in the case of materials like marble we will need to seal the countertop. A protective seal reduces damage and staining. With Silestone countertops, you needn’t worry. The non-porous material will keep your countertops brand new for years to come.
- Silestone is a man-made product that consists of natural quartz stone. The advantage of this fact is that the material can be manipulated to suit the needs of the buyers. You may notice when reading through manufacture descriptions that 25% of the material is polyester.
- As mentioned earlier, Silestone has anti-bacterial properties. The resin that is baked into the material is known to kill microbes. When working in the kitchen, we are unaware of the stains and/or grease on our countertops. We may only take notice of it later into the day while cleaning. The problem lies when the stain is allowed to reside for longer periods. It creates room for bacterial growth. Silestone takes care of that before they get a chance to flourish.
- Silestone may be slightly more expensive than its counterpart quartz. It is worth the money because of the low maintenance quality it has. The overall stain resistant and scratch-resistant property is an advantage to our budget.
These are some of the key features that are unique to Silestone. Before laying down your countertops be sure to research the materials involved. It is highly in demand. We receive a worktop that has a long lifespan with a cheap investment. Silestone has a good reputation and it is recommended you consider it for your countertops.
