Caesarstone: all you need to know

In recent years, engineered and processed stones have been taking the interior design world by storm. Caesarstone worktops are an excellent example of this rising trend. Engineered stones, like Caesarstone, have a number of advantages over natural stone and their own particular quirks. However, many people don’t know what a Caesarstone worktop is, and therefore find it hard to decide whether to fit one in their home or business.

At Surrey Marble and Granite, we’re interested in all kinds of stone, natural and processed. Over the coming weeks, we’ll be running a series of articles explaining the different kinds of processed stone available today. We’ll be focusing primarily on the domestic uses, although all these stones have commercial and industrial uses too.

What is Caesarstone?

Caesarstone is an engineered or processed stone. Unlike natural stone, Caesarstone is not quarried as a single large block and then carved or cut to fit. Instead, Caesarstone is made of natural stone particles bonded together with resin. This means that Caesarstone is made of up natural quartz stone, but can be formed into a wider range of shapes. The bonding agent can easily be coloured, giving Caesarstone a wider range of hues than natural stone. Moreover, long, contiguous surfaces can be made more easily and more cheaply. It’s easier to match Caesarstone, for example to create bathroom tiles, a long Caesarstone worktop or a stone floor.

Each piece of Caesarstone is made from up to 93% natural quartz stone. The remainder is the bonding and colouring agents which bind the stone particles together and give the stone its vibrant colour. Caesarstone are committed to reducing the environmental impact of their products, and Caesarstone contains up to 42% reclaimed quartz.

Advantages of Caesarstone worktops

While Caesarstone can be used in an enormous number of situations, the most common use in the UK is for kitchen or bathroom worktops. Caesarstone worktops have a number of advantages including:

  • Durable and hard wearing
  • Quartz is one of the hardest known natural minerals
  • Extensive range of vibrant and neutral colours
  • Thorough quality control
  • Resistant to stains, cracks and chips
  • Heat resistant
  • Unlikely to be damaged by household chemicals
  • Hygienic and safe for food preparation
  • Non-porous so they do not absorb water, germs or smells
  • Easy to care for – no need to wax or seal
  • Wipe clean

Other uses for Caesarstone

Caesarstone has many uses in the home and further afield. Caesarstone worktops are a popular option in bars, restaurants and even laboratories where the hygienic nature of this processed stone is essential. The range of bright and muted shades also makes it an attractive option for flooring and tiling. Caesarstone can be made in thin tiles, making it a light weight option for creating a stone bathroom. It can also be moulded into a wide range of shapes, and is sometimes used to create furniture and baths.

If you are happy with the style and layout of your kitchen, you can easily give it a make over by replacing tired kitchen countertops with new stone worktops. As worktops are in constant use, many families find that wooden or vinyl worktops quickly become scratched, battered and unattractive. Replacing them with durable granite or marble kitchen worktops can give your kitchen a new lease of life.

We have recently installed this stunning Moleanos Blue Bathroom in Midhurst. We are really pleased with this job and this bathroom looks really luxurious. Moleanos Blue is a type of polished Limestone which is quarried in Portugal. The colour varies from grey through to blue and is a very popular and consistent quality stone.

Stone is both durable and beautiful, so it’s popular throughout the home, from bathrooms to granite kitchen worktops to natural stone floors. It’s been used in grand buildings throughout the ages, from the Pantheon in Rome to Buckingham Palace. Stone has stood the test of time, but to keep it looking its best, it’s important to use the right cleaning methods.
