The natural advantages of easy-care quartz surfaces are available in myriad colors with Silestone by Cosentino

Face of freedom


When planning your new kitchen, it pays to choose your countertops and backsplash with care. These surfaces are central elements of your workspace, so you'll want them to offer design flexibility and hassle-free performance.

Silestone natural quartz surfaces deliver design flexibility, strong visual appeal, day-to-day durability and a hassle-free upkeep for home-owners, says Monica Canales, marketing director for Cosentino USA.

In terms of design, Silestone offers a free rein in creativity. Available in 45 rich colors, Silestone can be introduced as a dominant feature or as an accent piece to tone in with your existing décor.

A high flexural strength makes Silestone less susceptible to breaking. This strength allows for precise installation and a variety of edge designs to further your creative licence.

"Perhaps most importantly, Silestone represents freedom from worry," says Canales. "Quartz is one of the hardest minerals in nature, making Silestone highly scratch resistant. A tossed set of keys, a dropped knife or a sprawl of crayons, scissors and paper glue won't mar its surface."


And while day-to-day use won't faze it, neither will a spilled glass of wine or Kool-Aid. Silestone is nonporous and resists stains without needing to be sealed.

"Silestone also provides liberation for the homeowner in terms of upkeep," Canales says.

The durable quartz surface serves busy families well, as it cleans up easily with warm, soapy water or other household cleaners.

"Silestone surfaces have been designed to be a hassle-free addition to your home," Canales says. "They provide both creative freedom and the freedom to use your countertops the way your lifestyle demands."
