Silestone’s Blanco Maple Quartz Countertops

Have you ever been in a classy home that had a countertop that looked absolutely amazing? Classic styles never die, which is why they are called “classic” and timeless. White quartz counters like Silestone’s Blanco Maple are a tool to help you reach classic styling in your kitchen. We’re not talking off-whites and creams, but bright white countertops.

Blanco Maple quartz counters can add a crisp airy tone to your kitchen, accentuating other pale floors or contrasting deeper, darker colors. But if too much white is too “vanilla” for you, then simply opt for backsplashes or other elements with color. This can help bring out the darker flecks found in Blnco Maple quartz surfaces.

Fashionable individuals will probably want to do something more daring because white kitchens have become so common. Rather than going for wood or black and white décor, consider going with subtly bright colors like pastels. You can pull this look off by adding high-gloss surfaces or textures in other areas. The same colors can also be added to your walls for additional accentuation. Accessorizing is great, but do not overdo it. It’s gotta be functional!

Price & Cost of Blanco Maple Silestone

What makes one color more expensive than another? The production cost and the manufacturer’s ability to obtain the desired color from raw materials. A good indicator is granulometry. The more discreet the grain (more uniform and smooth), the more resin content it contains and, therefore, the more expensive it is to produce.

How doES Balnco Maple Quartz Countertops Perform?

Stain Resistance

Silestone Blanco Maple countertops are highly resistant to stains from coffee, wine, olive oil, make-up and many other everyday products when properly maintained. The Silestone coefficient of porosity is practically null and much lower than that of granite or marble. It is also more stain resistant than acrylics and laminates. However, be careful not to leave on liquids, such as, tea, coffee or red wine on the surface for more than 24 hours. Reason being, if liquids like these are exposed to the surface for such a long time this may penetrate the material, and may require a billable service call request. Remember that Silestone is stain resistant, not stain proof.

Silestone is not affected by common kitchen acids like lemon juice, tomato juice or vinegar (food acid). Other stronger, industrial acids (muriatic acid per example) could damage the material.

Silestone does not need any water repellent or gloss enhancer. Avoid these products as they can lead to important care and maintenance problems that void your warranty.

Heat Resistance

Silestone holds up better than a majority of other countertop or interior surface products, such as, laminate, wood and solid surface. It is recommended that you use a trivet because Silestone Blanco Maple quartz countertops are not warranted against thermal shock.

Impact Resistance

Silestone Blanco Maple countertops resistance to impact is very high. It far exceeds that of other products with similar applications, such as, natural stone or solid surfaces. That being said, care not to hit the exposed ends, corners, cutouts and edge profile especially in the dishwasher and sink area.

Scratch Resistance

Silestone is highly scratch resistant because quartz is one of the hardest minerals in existence. The Mohs scale classifies it as the hardest 7 earth mineral behind topaz, corundum and diamond. It will not “micro-scratch” like acrylic products and is broadly more resistant than any laminated or stratified product. Even so, you should still use a cutting board and avoiding jagged knives, ceramic knives, choppers, unfinished dishware, and clay pots directly on the worktop. Scouring pads or abrasive sponges should be avoided as they can deteriorate the polished surface.

Microbial / Bacteriostatic Protection

Due to its low porosity, Silestone Blanco Maple quartz countertops are considered an antibacterial surface, which limits the proliferation of bacteria. Please note that Silestone is not an antimicrobial surface. By medical definition, only a substance that kills microorganisms like bacteria or mold, or stops them from growing and causing disease can be labeled as antimicrobial.
