Silestone has the sophisticated elegance and timeless beauty of stone. The natural quartz in Silestone delivers a distinctive depth, brilliant clarity, glimmering radiance and cool, solid feel unique to natural stones.
Silestone can be used in virtually any indoor surfacing application, including kitchen countertops, bathroom vanities, tub and shower surrounds, backsplashes, floors, walls, wet bars, tabletops, desktops, fireplace surrounds,and more.
Silestone has four times the flexural strength of granite, making it less susceptible to chipping and cracking than granite during transportation and installation.
Silestone is available in over 42 dazzling colors, ensuring that there is a Silestone color to suit most any style or taste. Because Silestone natural quartz delivers more color consistency than any other natural stone, you can be confident when using samples to choose your color.
Only three other natural minerals -diamond, sapphire and topaz – are harder than quartz, making Silestone naturally scratch-resistant. So, while a careless slip of the knife will scratch most other countertops such as laminates and some granites, it won’t leave a mark on Silestone.
Silestone’s polished surface is non-porous and thus highly resistant to stains from coffee, wine, lemon juice, olive oil, vinegar, makeup, and many other common household products. Unlike granite, Silestone does not need to be sealed to keep its lustrous shine.
