Introducing Silestone

Created to be the perfect material for kitchen and bathroom worktops, Silestone is waterproof, heat resistant, cold resistant, easy to clean and hard to stain, chip, scratch or damage. Over the 25 years that Consentino have been manufacturing Silestone, they have worked to improve both the product and the range of options available which means that today’s customers have an excellent choice of colours and textures in a stone that never compromises on quality.

What is Silestone?

An engineered stone produced by Consentino, Silestone is made from 90% pure natural quartz with the remaining material being made up of resins and bonding agents, dyes and texture enhancers. As quartz is one of the toughest materials on the planet, Silestone is tough too. The manufacturing process includes a sealing process which means that the finished stone is non-porous, so it doesn’t absorb smells, dirt, foot particles or liquids. This means that it’s almost impossible to stain it and germs can’t get a foothold. As a result, a simple cleaning routine such as wiping down the surface with a damp cloth and a gently cleaner is usually enough to keep it looking at its best.

90+ shades of Silestone

Designed to mimic the beauty and variety of natural stone, Silestone is available in over 90 shades, which can be roughly divided into light greys and whites; creams and beige shades; dark greys and blacks; and browns. Silestone is available in 4 basic textures (plain, veined, fine grain and coarse grain) although of course you’ll find plenty of variation within each category. You can also choose from 3 standard finishes (polished, suede and volcano) in addition to the edging and finishing options we offer at Surrey Marble and Granite.

So tough, it’s got a 25 year warranty

As we mentioned, quartz is tough – tougher than granite – so it’s no surprise that Silestone is tough too. Consentino, the manufacturing company who produce Silestone, back their product with their reputation and their cash, offering a 25 year warranty on Silestone products. This durability is great news, whether you’re renovating your forever home or still on the first rung of the property ladder as such as strong product is sure to improve the resale value.

What is Silestone used for?

Most commonly used for kitchen worktops, Silestone can also be used for bathroom worktops, cladding and splashbacks, shower trays and wetroom walls. The company also offers a range of kitchen and bathroom sinks which can be special ordered. These striking statement pieces are a great way to add a designer touch to a small space. At Surrey Marble and Granite, we cut, shape and finish each piece we work on in our on-site workshop. This means that we can offer a much wider range of Silestone options than many of our competitors.
