A material analysis – Silestone

What is Silestone?
First and foremost Silestone is a 94% natural Quartz stone which ensures a timeless and elegant beauty graces the material, whilst the cool feeling of natural stone is still present. This is combined with silver ions in the production process, as part of the formulation of an anti-bacterial protection. This adds a very practical nature to the stylish product. As Silestone is a non-porous material which fits a variety of uses, it is one of the most popular products amongst our clients.


Advantages of Silestone

As mentioned above, Silestone has an added anti-bacterial quality which is entirely beneficial for it’s most typical use as a kitchen worktop surface.

Furthering on from this… the fact that Silestone is such a durable product also makes it an extremely popular choice amongst our clients, due to its scratch resistant and heat resistant capabilities. This only enhances the quality and practicality of the product.

A material which is also versatile due to the sheer number of colours in which it is available only adds to the appeal… and provides a reason as to why Silestone is used in a variety of environments. We currently stock Silestone in over 50 different colours and finishes, from bright orange (Cool) to more traditional marble effect patterns (Ebony Pearl).

Silestone is also easily manipulated in the sense that it can be cut, shaped and fashioned into a design that suits your space and design needs. This is all done in-house at Bespoke Surfaces with our cutting-edge machinery.

Other uses of Silestone
We have produced worktops, splash-backs, shower walls and kitchen equipment from Silestone, only underlining just how effective it can be. Furthermore it can be used within commercial industries as well as within the home… many bars often have their worktops made from the material due to the non-porous nature of the product, previously mentioned.
