Kitchen work surfaces made from Silestone and Dekton

For the kitchen related video lovers I have a treat for you. I was recently sent a selection of videos from one of my kitchen surface suppliers “Consentino”. They are the people behind Silestone and Dekton.

Silestone kitchen worktops are one of the world’s leading brands of quartz surfaces designed for high quality kitchens and bathrooms. Some of the key features of Silestone are:

  • Certified warranty
  • High stain resistance
  • High acidity resistance
  • Scratch resistant
  • High impact resistance
  • Bacteriostatic protection
  • Wide range of textures
  • Wide range of colours
  • Natural quartz

In slightly more detail, the warranty is certified in writing, totally transferrable and lasts 25 years. The stain resistance comes from the non-pourous surface. It’s highly resistant to stains from coffee, wine, lemon juice, olive oil, vinegar, makeup and many other everyday products. The acid resistance comes from the durability of the quartz and its ability to tackle external aggressions. That same quartz, one of the hardest minerals in the world, helps the Silestone surface resist scratches. The impact resistance also comes from the quartz content, as well as its polyester resin elasticity and its vibrocompression system used during production. "What is Bacteriostatic protection?" I hear you ask. Well, it means that Silestone worktops contain a formula of silver ions to prevent the propagation of bacteria, keeping your kitchen cleaner and therefore safer. Silestone comes in three textures, original polished, soft touch suede and the rugged volcano, which is highly textured. It’s all a matter of what you prefer. This also goes for your colour choice, which currently stands at more than 85 colours. It’s safe to say there will be something there to suit your pallet. The natural quartz content in a Silestone worktop is 94% which, as we've discussed, offers huge benefits over other worktop options.

Moving onto Dekton, which is unique because of the technological process used to create it. Sinterized Particle Technology is the name given to a process that compacts the raw materials in the same way that nature does when creating rock. However, this is the 21st century and the technology on hand is able to replicate that process in hours. Dekton is extremely tough and this means it can be used to create kitchen worktops as thin as 8mm. It’s also extremely light, which means it’s ideal for large worktops of 1440mm x 3200mm in size. Dekton is non porous, making it a low maintenance, long life product. Everything to do with Dekton is extraordinary.

I’ll be opening my new design studio in the coming weeks and I’ll have display samples of both worktops for you to look at and touch. In the mean time, if you would like any further information, please CONTACT ME. I can’t wait to have a chat with you and discuss your new kitchen plans.

Now then I promised you some videos to watch, so without further ado...
