Silestone Worktops Explained

August 27, 2016

With so many worktop styles, materials and brands to choose from, it can be hard to know which way to turn. Your worktop choice is incredibly important when designing a kitchen, and it can have a huge impact on the end result. It can also make a relatively cheap kitchen look 'high end' if you really do take care in making that all important decision.

At our Plymouth showroom, we stock only brands and materials that we really believe in. Silestone is certainly one of those brands. Silestone by Cosentino is a unique brand – thanks to its properties and characteristics, and because anyone with a Silestone product also automatically becomes one of a kind. Its exclusive nature has enabled it to become a brand linked to the world of fashion and design, associated with the highest levels of innovation and modernity.
