What is Silestone?
Silestone is one of the leading manufacturers of beautiful, durable, natural quartz countertops. Quartz is one of the hardest minerals on earth, and makes strong, resilient countertops that are extremely durable and resistant to scratches and nicks. Silestone countertops come in a wide variety of colors and are available in two finishes: Original and Leather.
Silestone Original Polish
With glimmering radiance and the smooth feel of natural stone, originally polished Silestone counters are a popular choice for homeowners throughout Maryland, DC and VA as well as the rest of the world.
Their deep and pure surface displays the quartz’s natural elegance and clarity.
Silestone Leather natural quartz countertops offer a distinctive texture that evokes a taste for the exotic. It is the ultimate combination of beauty and practicality. These particular Silestone Counters delight the eye with their unique texture while having Microban protection built right-in.
Microban antimicrobial product protection safely fights the growth of odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew on the product surface for the life of the product. The result is peace of mind with countertops that are easier to clean and stay cleaner in-between cleanings.
Note: Microban protection does not protect users from food-borne illness and is not a substitute for normal cleaning practices.
How to Clean Silestone Quartz Countertops
Quartz stone is naturally non-porous, making it resistant to stains and bacterial growth. For most cleanings, all you have to do is wash with warm water, but for grease spills and other tough jobs, spray with a small amount of household cleaner, scrub, and then rinse immediately with water.
Maintaining Silestone Counters
Silestone countertops do not require any sealing, polishing, or reconditioning. Liquids that are typically damaging to most countertop materials, such as fruit juices, food dye, coffee, tea, red and white wine and grape juice, have little effect on quartz. When disinfecting or cleaning silestone counters, all you need to do is spray with household cleaner and then rinse with water.
Silestone vs. Granite
For years homeowners have been debating what makes a better countertop: Silestone or granite?
The truth is that there really is no such thing as the best countertop—only the best countertop for your situation.
Both materials resist the growth of bacteria, are incredibly strong, and come in a variety of colors and patterns.
However, granite is a natural stone, and Silestone is an engineered product combining natural quartz and resin. As a result, Silestone more customizable and the short-term Silestone cost is typically less than that of granite. The long-term cost of Silestone is also lower considering the material requires no regular maintenance.
Features Unique to Silestone Counters
Silestone counters are notorious for their distinctive textures, and are immediately recognizable to the touch. In fact, Silestone made its name with its smooth, cool to touch original polished finish.
In 2006, they introduced Silestone Leather, which drew inspiration from the look and feel of natural leather. This new line of counters has more of a matte texture while retaining the legendary durability of Silestone products.
Varying Colors and Depths
Silestone offers over 50 different color varieties to ensure that every Maryland or Virginia homeowner can find a style to match their kitchen or bathroom.
However, these color options extend beyond simple hues. There are a variety of options available to consumers who want to experiment with depth of colors, including the use of multiple colors and the refraction of colors.
So whether you’re looking for a solidly colored surface, or a natural looking quartz surface with gemstones, Silestone counters can accommodate your needs.
