Quartz Caesarstone vs Silestone – Which is best?
Choosing the type of quartz to use within your home renovations can be quite tricky, especially if you are struggling to see whether one is better than the other. By the end of this article you should have some more information to help you in your decision – Quartz Caesarstone or Silestone?
Ceasarstone and Silestone are both very popular and have been designed to have the appearance of granite. If you purchase either of these two for your home, you can expect to have a product that will last for many years to come with proper care.
So, here is our top four things to consider when choosing between caesarstone and silestone for your home improvement plans.
With cesarstone quartz you should usually expect to pay slightly more, although prices will vary according to which supplier you go to. Caesarstone is typically higher prices than silestone as you pay for the import fees on top of the retail price.While price is often a game changer for many customers, it is not necessarily the be all and end to, as they both have a lot to offer.
Caesarstone is made with, at least, 93% quartz content which doesn’t make it that much of a winner in comparison to silestone that has been manufactured to have, at least, 90% quartz.
For some customers, the percentage of quartz content often influences their choice of purchase, however with a percentage difference that small it shouldn’t really sway your decision too much. If you think you may have already made up your mind, certainly don’t let that change it.
In terms of warranty, caesarstone is the clear winner as suppliers typically offer you a lifetime warranty, whereas with silestone you are looking at something more towards ten to fifteen-years warranty.
However, as quartz is brilliant for caring and upkeep as they essentially take care of themselves, a warranty is not usually needed but it is definitely something that customers like to know is there if they ever do need it.
Choice of Colours
For most customers the choice of colours available will often make a difference in what they will ultimately choose to purchase. Silestone offers a huge variety of colours for their customers which can be a massive plus for a lot of customers, especially those who like to take their take and pick the absolute perfect one for their home. However, having such a big variety to choose from can equally be just as overwhelming for the customer who prefers to choose one out of the showroom straight away with minimal fuss.
While silestone offers a good variety when it comes to colours, caesarstone offers the best variety for finishes. If you are interested in choosing from a wide selection of edging, then caesarstone is the one to go for.
Hopefully this article has helped to clear some things up for you and has helped you on your way to choosing whether caesarstone or silestone quartz is the one for you.
