Silestone Quartz countertops are ideal for the homeowner who wishes to improve their home's aesthetic and ambiance. Not only is Silestone high-performing and low-maintenance, but it's also available in a wide variety of beautiful colors. StoneMark stocks over 15 Silestone colors to choose from, giving you the flexibility to choose your quartz countertop to fit any one of the current design trends. That's more selection than any other stone yard in Louisville! Check out why these Silestone colors are excellent choices for your upcoming project.

Marble Veining

While marble veining in countertops remains a top kitchen trend for 2021, quartz countertops are becoming a popular alternative to actual marble due to their easy care and contemporary, high-end look. We have several in-stock choices resembling marble: Helix gives a lovely impression of white marble, and Lyra looks like white Carrara marble. You can also choose Calacatta Gold or Classic Calacatta with their beautiful large veining for a more dramatic look.

 

Bright White

If you're following the recent trend of clean white countertops to go with contrasting dark brown or black cabinets, try these in-stock colors: Miami White - known for it’s striking bright white hue or Statuario - with its blue-white surface and bright veins in grey and pink hues. There is also Miami Vena - a flawless white with a subtle yet natural vein.

 

Dramatic Islands

Do you prefer a dark or dramatic island countertop contrasting with your lighter cabinets? We have several in-stock quartz colors that are a perfect fit. Charcoal Soapstone with its dark blue-grey finish and powerful gray highlights, or Gray Expo, which appears dark gray from afar but up close, you can see beautiful tiny speckles of gray, white, and black. If you want something more dramatic, check out Pietra with its mix of faint gray background full of dramatic veining in grays, blues, and creams, creating beautiful movement and dimension. 

 

A Color for Every Look

If the marble-look or contrasting countertops aren't part of your kitchen design, we have other beautiful in-stock Silestone alternatives that will complement any kitchen. Ariel is a stunning stone with its soft eggshell background and minimal light gray veining throughout. We also have Blanco Orion, white quartz with gray, beige, and white veins that move throughout the stone, creating a beautiful dimension. Desert Silver is a light gray stone with alluring thin veins of bright white, while Eternal Serena has a greenish-grey background with powerful white veins. Lusso is predominately white with dramatic veins of charcoal, gold, bronze, and light beige especially made to compliment natural wood cabinets and flooring.

 

Whether designing a new kitchen or remodeling your current kitchen, remember to consider a full-height quartz backsplash. According to Cosentino's Kitchen Trends for 2021, a solid, one-piece quartz backsplash helps create a seamless design that adds continuity to your space. It's easier to keep clean than tile and grout, resistant to scratches, and has a nonporous surface that resists bacteria, staining, and viruses.

 Last but not least, Cosentino offers a 25-year transferable warranty for Silestone countertops. If you'd like to know more about these beautiful in-stock quartz slabs, or you'd like to come by the stone yard and see these beautiful stones, contact us at 502.315.5110.
