Silestone Basics

Who?

Silestone is a quartz countertop brand by Consentino. They call themselves “The Original Quartz” and have been manufacturing quartz countertops for bathrooms, kitchens and commercial applications since 1990. Consentino also produces and distributes other natural stone and architectural products, exporting to over 80 different countries around the world.

What?

It’s Quartz. And quartz is one of the greatest products for countertops that anyone could ask for! It’s both all-natural and man-made. The combination of quartz and other raw materials make for a super strong and resilient product.

Why?

Silestone, being made of quarts means that the product is extremely strong and can stand up to a lot! The fact that it’s made up mostly of quartz means that it’s not porous like other stone surfaces. Translation: It’s not going to hold on to harmful bacteria, it won’t stain as easily, it doesn’t need sealing, polishing, or refinishing. Quartz will also resist discoloration from acids, mild chemical cleaners, sunlight & UV rays, and even heat or spills.

Spring Fling

White & Light Grey

These colors go with anything year-round, and the white contrasts nicely with the bright colors that are popping up all over! If placed in in areas that get plenty of sunlight they’ll reflect the light even more and brighten everything up even more!
