In my last few posts about BlogTourNYC, I've mentioned Silestone by Cosentino a few times without properly introducing them. Lorenzo Marquez, VP of Marketing, gave us an introduction to this family owned business at the brunch at the Poggenpohl Kitchen Design Studio. Consentino, a world leader in the natural stone sector, have been working with Silestone since 1994. This family owned business originated in Almeria, Spain, is dedicated to the innovative development of kitchen surfaces so it's not surprise they chose to work with Silestone, a naturally beautiful but also durable quartz.
Silestone is the only kitchen surface made of quartz that also encompasses antibacterial properties. No one else is doing this, I love that.
Lorenzo talked us through some of the 60 colour shades available. Interestingly, white, which was their 36th best seller a few years aho, is now their No 1. And, Silestone gurantee that White Zeus is the whitest counter top on the market today.
Neutral kitchen design has always been the safe choice because as everyone knows, kitchens sell houses. And not everyone likes a red kitchen. Now however, with the progression of new neutrals - whites, blacks, greys, there are so many more possibilities to personalise your kitchen space without compromising on the re-sale value of your home.
I love this kitchen above, the matte finish of the Silestone surfaces are so perfectly modern and fresh. They also offer one more advantage over the polished marble; low maintenance. You just use good old soap and water. Simple.
Thank you Silestone by Consentino for sponsoring BlogTourNYC. It has been such a pleasure learning about your products and company.
