Bianco River Quartz Material Description
Bianco River is a light grey, marble look quartz material that comes in a polished & suede texture. It is supplied to Polish Granite by Silestone company specialising in stone slab production.
Why Bianco River is the perfect material for stone kitchen worktops?
To this day, quartz remains one of our best-selling stone worktops products. It is nearly infallible, defined by near-indestructible properties, easy cleaning & maintenance, but above all exceptional beauty. Quartz is modern, stylish, sleek and perfectly slots into any environment, as though it naturally belongs there.
The light grey, marble look Bianco River quartz worktops are incredibly sturdy and resistant to abrasion, cutting, staining and general wear and tear that impact other, weaker materials, like wood or laminate worktops. You may cut vegetables, fruit or meat directly on a quartz surface, forgoing the need for chopping boards. Even the sharpest of blades won’t scratch this durable stone.
The sleek quartz kitchen worktops are also completely waterproof. Since they are man-made products, they are imbued during the production process with special resins and agents that prevent all water absorption. Therefore, even if you leave a coffee, wine, grease or water spill over night, the worktop won’t soak any of it up, leaving the colour and pristine shine entirely unharmed.
Discolouration, chipping, and warping aren’t a threat to speckled Bianco River kitchen quartz worktops. These are products blessed with incredible longevity and unmatched durability. In essence, these tops are a one-off purchase that lasts a lifetime.
What thicknesses are available for Bianco River?
The slabs of Bianco River by Silestone are available in 12mm or 20mm or 30mm thicknesses. This stone material depth is ideal for multiple applications. From big projects like kitchen worktops, paving, flooring & wall cladding to smaller installations of coffee tabletops, dining tables or windowsills. Surfaces of this depth are manufactured in bespoke fashion, tailor-made to complete even the most demanding projects.
Any stone surface available in 12mm (or under) is also ideal for wall, kitchen cabinet or even furniture cladding. These thin surfaces are equally as strong as their thicker counterparts, except their weight is severely reduced.
Consequently, they are superb products used to clad ceilings, walls, stairs as well as bathtubs, bathroom equipment, swimming pools or other waterproofed areas. Thanks to their low-weight attribute, they are likewise utilised to decorate furniture, or more commonly kitchen cabinets. These fragile elements benefit from the low mass as their delicate hinges and fittings don’t buckle under the weight. Meanwhile they are continuously protected from dirt, grime, or unintentional scratches, making them very desirable.
What makes Bianco River so unique?
Product colour description:
The light grey colour of Bianco River by Silestone is without a doubt the most frequently purchased hue in our collection. This is today’s trend, after all. Grey spaces no longer evoke the feeling of industrial melancholy, instead elements like light grey kitchen worktops are implemented into modern architecture because they represent novelty and minimalism. A highly sought-out, attractive colour that instantly becomes the heart of any setting. And because of its deemed universality, it pairs with almost every type of cabinet, from white gloss, through to black matte or brown, classic raw wood.
The marble look pattern contains veins streaming and pulsating down the length of Bianco River by Silestone. They animate this surface, granting it energy, depth and chromatic richness. Organic, marble effect colours pair well with a cabinet of virtually any colour. But above all, they are stand-out centrepieces on kitchen islands, where the organic patterns cascade down the edge, flowing onto the adjoining side panels. This natural theme is universally applicable to similar or contrasting colours.
Material structure & composition:
Majority of our stone products, as Bianco River above, are speckled in nature. This means their composition comprises of small-to-medium contrasting veins and threads that spread across the slab surface in a usually regular manner. Like on a leaf, further mimicking the natural inspiration. This structure is a part of our marble-look, natural colour range – fantastic for almost any interior, modern and traditional alike.
Material recommended for:
- Kitchen worktops & full splashbacks,
- Modern and traditional interiors,
- General cladding.
What textures/finishes is this product supplied in?
The light grey, marble look Bianco River by Silestone can be supplied in a ‘polished’ texture. This means a scintillating gloss that beautifully reflects the light and highlights the true colours & pigments embedded within the product. The polished texture is one of the most popular surface finishes, mostly present among quartz worktops and granite worktops, although ceramic suppliers also adopt this finish for their stone slabs. These surfaces are easy to clean and prevent all liquid absorption.
The light grey, marble look Bianco River is available in ‘suede’ texture. It essentially means matted finish; the suede label is unique to Consentino products, especially that of Silestone. With a suede look, the surface will be deprived of that high gloss look and feel. Instead, the worktops or cladded walls will align more with the natural, raw sensation of authentic stone. Suede is a gorgeous texture that will highlight all pigments and complex composition features of the product above, gravitating your eyes towards it.
