What is Silestone?

Manufactured in Almeria, Spain, by Cosentino, Silestone is a solid surface made up of over 90% natural quartz. This highly technical and precise process takes finely ground quartz crystals and blends them with a proprietary binding agent before being set into a workable slab. This creates an extremely tough material that is ideal for a variety of surface solutions around the home. Silestone is perfect for kitchen worktops and is, by far, our most popular option.

Why choose Silestone?

The manufacturing process outlined above creates a strong, non-porous material that is highly practical, easy to clean and resistant to stains. Cosentino adds flecks of glass and metallics to create a range of beautiful coloured surfaces designed to complement any kitchen style. With new surface textures that include suede and volcanic, there truly is an option for everyone. Cosentino’s 25 year warrantee means there’s every reason to explore the Silestone range and see how well it works with your new kitchen.

Silestone Vs Granite

Cosentino Sensa Haven Granite

The ultimate in luxury

Granite is a wonderful work surface. For many it would be considered the ultimate in luxury. Granite is a natural material that comes out of the ground in one piece and is cut to size during the manufacturing process. When you use a good quality granite, the results can be stunning.

Silestone is stain resistant

However, granite does present a few issues that need to be considered. Untreated granite is semi porous, which means that liquids can penetrate the surface and cause permanent staining. High quality granite surfaces such as Sensa have a protective sealant applied during manufacture. This goes some way to reducing this issue. However, the sealant will need to be re-applied at regular intervals, adding to the maintenance requirements that aren’t needed with Silestone.

Silestone offers consistent colours

The natural nature of granite means that no two slabs are the same. As a result, the pattering and colour can vary significantly. When buying granite, it is important to choose the slab early on during the design phase. The pattern and colour could have a significant effect on the design choices down the line. With Silestone, there is far more uniformity between slabs. This simplifies the design process, giving you the freedom and flexibility over other aspects of your kitchen design.

Abundance of colour choice

Silestone is available in more than 90 colours with tonal choices galore. For a minimalist approach there’s a range of plain colours, with alternative options showing a visible grain. For those in search of the exotic, there’s a number of vein effects that resemble luxurious marble. Add in three different texture options and you’ll soon discover there are endless possibilities for your kitchen.

A close look at texture

With the aim of being adapted to your style, Silestone offers you different textures to any of your chosen applications. Polish, Suede or Volcano are three possibilities that make your imagination fly and have your worktop, flooring or walling with the texture that you have always wanted.

Silestone polished texture

Polished

This is where it all started, the original Silestone® polished quartz surface. The polished finish offers the look and feel that will stand the test of time. With the smooth feel of natural stone, Silestone’s original polished surface remains popular throughout the world. There are countless options to choose from, with solid colours, deeply veined and crystallised effects in wide range that caters for any kitchen design scheme. The polished finish also boasts the beautiful Integrity sink, which seamlessly integrates a Silestone sink into the work surface, for the ultimate in continuity.

Silestone suede texture

Suede

Silestone Suede is a textured surface that is uniquely soft to the touch. This is an elegant material that is hygienic and easy to clean. It also offers the added benefit of reducing fingerprint marks and greasy stains. It complements the popular matt door finishes that have become popular, adding an unexpected sense of ambience of your kitchen. By maintaining the same characteristics to the overall design of your room, the suede surface can help you achieve total colour consistency and the perfect finish.

Silestone volcano texture

Volcano

Volcano is the new Silestone texture. It is soft to the touch but deeply textured. Some might say it has a rustic feel but that might limit the perception of its versatility. Volcano is the result of a huge R&D effort to find an attractive for those who love the rugged look. It looks great in an industrial setting, whilst being equally at home in an authentic country kitchen. The Volcano utilises a special surface treatment that has been developed to assist in cleaning, which adds to the practicality of this beautiful surface.

N-Boost

This colour intensifying treatment is available on a select number of Silestone surfaces. N-Boost is a revolutionary technology that improves stain resistance, adds shine and brilliance to the surface.

Cutting edge design

There are a number of edge profiles available to suit the look you prefer.

Straight bevelled edge

The straight edge is the simplest of all, as it has the same thickness as the worktop but with a straight finish.

Bullnose

A totally rounded finish that creates a sensation of complete continuity in the kitchen, while maintaining the same worktops thickness.

Demi-bullnose

An edge with the same worktop thickness that softens the kitchen or bathroom worktop with a curved finish.

Dove chest

A traditional edge formed by a finish with very elegant curves.

Mitred

The perfect solution, to which a side piece is added to add robustness to the kitchen or bathroom worktop.

2+2 eased edge

This type of edge gives the worktop continuity while maintaining its shock and scratch resistance.

Slab Formats

Silestone comes in two slab sizes and three thicknesses this means your choice can adapt to your project with ease. Silestone slab formats include “Standard” at 306 x 140 cm and “Jumbo” at 325 х 159 cm. The thickness choices are 12mm, 20mm and 30mm, to help you achieve the look you desire.
