Shitake by Caesarstone Quartz
Shitake Quartz Material Description
Shitake is a light brown quartz material that comes in a polished texture. It is supplied to Polish Granite by Caesarstone company specialising in stone slab production.
Why Shitake 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 brown Shitake 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 mottled Shitake 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 Shitake?
The slabs of Shitake 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 Shitake so unique?
Product colour description:
Our light brown kitchen worktop colours, like Shitake quartz, embody the magnetic power of eye-attraction. They are intricate and unusual. At first, we associate light brown worktops with hardwood, often utilised for kitchen surfaces. But at second glance, the mocha-hued material ends the deception, and we realise (still enchanted), that we’re gazing at stone. Light brown kitchen worktops are superb for lovers of natural motifs, vintage accents and rustic spaces. The light brown + cream pairing is our absolute favourite.
Material structure & composition:
Mottled patterns are a common feature on our stone product spectrum. Such is the Shitake material above, filled with speckles that disperse over the surface in irregular fashion, providing the worktop some depth and intricacy. Mottled stone products, whether man-made or organic, fit a whole range of spaces. But above all those traditional pubs or cottage-like interiors steeped with history and organic motifs.
Material recommended for:
- Traditional or historic spaces,
- Chopping boards,
- Fireplace surrounds.
What textures/finishes is this product supplied in?
The light brown Shitake 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.
Caesarstone are our long-term partner and trusted supplier of quartz slabs, namely the mottled Shitake. They’ve been at the helm of the quartz production since 1987, pioneering some of the first quartz worktop technology. This company is driven by passion to create. From cutting-edge production of quartz slabs via recycling of raw materials, to composition of a wealth of colours, patterns and intricate designs that allow our customers for flexibility in the field of interior design.
Each of Caesarstone’s product is enriched with living, vibrant essence that becomes timeless through the decades, keeping your quartz kitchen worktops fresh and modern. The impenetrable, near-indestructible properties of the products means that the quartz worktops are kept hygienic and clean.
Compared to inferior laminate worktops, the resilient Caesarstone materials don’t crack or produce minute crevices. Therefore, it makes it almost impossible for bacteria or mould to develop and thrive on the scratch-free surface. Furthermore, a Caesarstone quartz worktop is almost maintenance-free, granting you a daily peace of mind.
