The Perfect Silestone Kitchen Countertops
Kitchens are one of the most highly used spaces in a home and require materials and products that extend the longevity of the space. Silestone countertops exhibits exclusive properties that contribute to the safety, durability and hygiene of a kitchen. Silestone countertops are made from quartz minerals, a hard and durable surface; only diamonds, sapphires and topaz are stronger. Silestone countertops are available in many different finishes, but since Silestone is polished it already has a little bit of shine to it. A super glossy type of Silestone countertop may show fingerprints very easily. The color and pattern consistency of a Silestonecountertop is often more appealing to homeowners than natural stone such as granite. This is because natural stone slabs may contain an intense area of a certain color and pattern on one part of the slab and yet have a totally different look on an adjacent section of the same piece of stone.
A popular selling feature of Silestone countertops is their durability. They are known to handle a lot of tough use such as in busy family kitchens. The denseness of Silestone makes it extremely strong and long lasting. A Silestone countertop is more stain and heat resistant that a stone countertop such as granite. Because Silestone is also acid resistant, acidic foods such as citrus fruits, soda and vinegar are less likely to damage the countertop.
