Why Empira Black 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 black, marble look Empira Black 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 blemished Empira Black 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 Empira Black?
The slabs of Empira Black by Caesarstone are available in 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.
What makes Empira Black so unique?
Product colour description:
Black materials, like Empira Black by Caesarstone above, are extremely popular in the quartz and granite worktops industry. Primarily because this is a universal colour. Black brilliantly contrasts white & green cabinets or grey floors. It is a colour that emboldens your kitchen and manifests the strength inherent to this stone product. Black resembles depth, a crevice, a black hole. It’s a deceptive colour that seems plain, drab and intimidating in our minds, but when applied to a piece of furniture it inspires a sense of awe and wonder.
The marble look pattern contains veins streaming and pulsating down the length of Empira Black by Caesarstone. 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:
The thicker blemishes and occasional veins of Empira Black spread throughout the surface in an irregular manner. The blemished surface creates a stunning, organic-looking composition reminiscent of polished marble. Finally, the worktop can brim with life which emanates from the depths of the intricate veins. This wild, untamed and unpredictable appearance will be ideal for lovers of natural stone elements, complementing other raw materials like wood, metal or glass.
Material recommended for:
- Modern kitchens,
- Kitchen islands,
- Waterfall/mitred side panels.
What textures/finishes is this product supplied in?
The black, marble look Empira Black by Caesarstone 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.
