Yukon Quartz Material Description
Yukon is a cream quartz material that comes in a polished & suede texture. It is supplied to Polish Granite by Silestone company specialising in stone slab production.
Why Yukon 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 cream Yukon 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 small grained Yukon 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 Yukon?
The slabs of Yukon 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 Yukon so unique?
Product colour description:
Pale colours, like the shade of cream on Yukon by Silestone instantly fill a given interior with youth, minimalism and brightness. If you possess a relatively darker kitchen, cream must be your go-to kitchen worktop colour. Cream worktops are an ideal addition to darker cabinets like black, green, dark brown, or dark grey flooring. However, a pairing with lighter shades also creates a gorgeous scheme, bestowing warmth and cosiness to the given interior.
Material structure & composition:
Small grains, a feature of this Yukon worktop product, add a stoney, rough effect to the smooth surface. It’s a fantastic way to pick a generally plain-coloured product without it appearing lifeless or lacking dimension. Our fine-grained materials are very popular due to their universality. Whether it’s your bathroom, kitchen, utility room or stairwell, this product may be applied to any home setting. Furthermore it masks signs of grime, mud or muck – perfect for those patio floors!
Material recommended for:
- Stairs & step cladding,
- Bathroom worktops & vanity tops,
- Utility room tops.
What textures/finishes is this product supplied in?
The cream Yukon 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 cream Yukon 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.
