One of the main advantages when utilizing Silestone worktops on your home is that they do not need to be sealed at all, which is a really practical factor to home owners who wants to obtain a hassle-free worktop material.

Unlike some other kitchen surfaces, it is non-porous, so Silestone worktops are much more hygienic, for they can be kept 99.9% germ-free when maintained well.
