On top of this functionality, Silestone comes in a wide range of styles, colours and finishes, meaning that you can get creative when choosing your preferred look for your kitchen benchtop.

Why opt for custom Caesarstone benchtops? 



When designing your custom benchtop you’ll want to think about your desired finished look of the kitchen, and how you want to feel when using the kitchen space. Are you aiming for a light and airy feel, or something more sophisticated and dramatic? Your choice of colour for your benchtop material will have an impact on the finished feel of your kitchen. Caesarstone benchtops have been organised into categories, from categories one to four. The higher the category, the more unique the material’s colour variation and detail. This makes Caesarstone a useful material to play around with when customising your kitchen benchtops. You could even create a shadow line edge profile for your kitchen benchtop. This custom design will offer the illusion of a floating benchtop, enhancing the look of your chosen stone further.
