More About Silestone
Silestone is a combination of natural quartz and other raw materials that are extraordinarily hard and highly resistant to staining. Our designers use Silestone quartz for many kitchen and bath design projects. It comes in a wide range of colors and extraordinary textures. There are three finish textures available–polished, suede and volcano.
Silestone comes in three thicknesses: 1 ¼ inch (3cm), ¾ inch (2cm), and ½ inch (1.2 cm). Silestone offers two slabs sizes: Standard is 55 inches by 120 inches and Jumbo is 63 inches by 128 inches.
Edge Profiles are as follows…
Ogee: A traditional-style edge featuring a concave arch that transitions into a convex arch; Straight Beveled: Square with a slanted top; Demi Bullnose: Rounded along the top and flattens at the bottom; Mitred: This edge joins two angled pieces; Bullnose: A completely rounded finish; and Basic Eased: Square with a slightly eased top.
If you really want to add some WOW factor…
Check out Silestone’s Prexury collection. These are made of semi-precious stones, petrified wood, and unusual fossils that are stunning when back lit. The side by side images below show what the stones look like with the back lights on and with them off. They are jaw-dropping gorgeous both ways. You can use these gem stones on a countertop, a wall, a room divider, or even an art installation. The stones are magnificent!
