There are so many pros to pretty much every natural and man made material used in kitchen worktops.
And that can make the choice difficult and overwhelming when it comes to deciding on which countertop (and colour) to choose for your new kitchen.
If you’re looking for the perfect new kitchen worktops but are struggling to settle on the right material, Silestone could be the ideal choice.
What is Silestone?
Silestone Worktops is a manufactured material made from natural quartz crystals. It can be put to use in a wide variety of different ways, but considering that you want to know what it is like for your new kitchen, we will obviously be focussing on how it performs in its intended environment as a kitchen worktop material.
The Durability of Silestone Worktops
Silestone is a very strong material. It’s almost indestructible so you don’t have to worry about damage or wear if you drop a pan on the worktop. In fact, it’s more likely to blunt your sharp kitchen knives than take on the damage itself! Because of the strength of the material, if taken care of it can look pretty much brand new forever. This makes it a great investment and not something you’ll have to replace in a hurry. Not something that can be said about all kitchen worktop materials. Silestone also doesn’t require sealing unlike other kitchen worktop options. This means that once they are installed you are good to go, no need for regular maintenance.
Is there a drawback to Silestone Worktops?
The only drawback to note for Silestone is that it is not heat resistant. If hot pans are left on your Silestone countertops its likely to cause damage and discolouration. This is easy avoidable though. Just make sure you have a pot stand handy. If that is a deal breaker then there are plenty of other amazing kitchen worktop materials to choose from. If you can tolerate that slight inconvenience then keep reading.
Cleaning and Maintenance of Silestone Worktops
Another advantage of this wonderful material is that it’s really easy to clean. The nonporous nature of Silestone means that it doesn’t absorb stains. So, no need to stress if you spill tomato sauce (or red wine) on the kitchen counter. Any mess can be simply wiped off with soap and water, without leaving a trace.
Silestone is also the only quartz based material that has Bacteriostatic Protection. This prevents bacteria from multiplying on your worktops. An attractive feature where food prep is concerned.
Cost of Silestone Worktops
In comparison to other worktop materials, Silestone a mid range priced worktop option. When taking into account the high quality and durability of the material, the investment will definitely save you in the long term.

At Discount Worktop Store, the first thing we need to clarify is that Discount Kitchen Worktops does not mean discounted quality. The kitchen worktops that we sell on our website to customers across the UK are the exact same kitchen worktops that the high street stores sell. And we are not talking about similar worktops. We are talking about the exact same worktops.
If you buy a kitchen worktop from a high street store, they don’t have that worktop sitting in the back of the shop. What happens is that they put together an order form that is sent to a factory. That factory then makes up the worktop and ships it to the requested address.
At Discount Worktop Store; that is the exact same thing that we do.
There is no magic or witchcraft behind it.
