6 Reasons Why Silestone Worktops Are Ideal For Modern Bathrooms

With the growing trend of home improvement, people are focusing and spending more freely on improving their bathrooms as well. For many, the silence of the bathroom acts as a place of relieving stress and getting innovative ideas. Whether you are one of those people who get inspiration in their bathroom or someone who only looks for a minimum level of comfort and convenience in it, bathroom worktops do require considerable attention.

When it comes to bathroom worktops, there was a time when options were very limited. Thanks to the attention and popularity and technological refinement that this area received, you now have many options to choose from. These options include laminate worktops, natural stones, like granite, slate, limestone, soapstone or marble, ceramic/porcelain tile worktops, Silestone worktops etc. There are important factors to keep in mind while choosing bathroom worktop material.

These factors include the cost, durability, styling effect, availability of design and color and the maintenance associated with the material. Different materials or types of worktops perform differently on these factors. Therefore, a closer look at them is essential before investing in them. If we look at quality and popularity, granite, marble and quartz or Silestone worktops perform better.

Silestone worktops for bathrooms are a popular choice among homeowners, and thus, worthy of your consideration. Silestone is basically 90 to 94 percent natural quartz and resins and polymers make up the rest of it. Silestone has a lot of benefits, which make Silestone kitchen worktops as popular as the bathroom ones. Let us look at some of the reasons for its popularity:

1. Material strength and quality

Quartz is extremely hard and of superior quality. It has a beautiful and glossy finish, which suits the surroundings of a bathroom. Its material strength, quality and looks make it a highly durable option. This is also the reason that it is a bit expensive. It is still a brilliant option because it can last a lifetime and doesn't get easily damaged. It is resistant to chipping, cracking and scratching.

2. Design and color options

A modern bathroom has to be good looking and stylish. This makes Silestone worktops a great choice because of the abundance of design and color options available in the market. Endless design and color options in Silestone would help you ensure that your worktop matches with the interior theme of your bathroom.

Coloring in Silestone is actually more uniform than it is with natural stones. This adds to the advantage it has over other materials. Options range from a variety of solid colors to those worktops that resemble the look of granite or marble while providing the benefits of Silestone.

3. Easy to maintain

Silestone is easy to maintain, as it is non-porous and doesn't catch dirt that easily. It can be washed with lukewarm water and mild detergent or soap. Its impeccable strength means it won't require frequent repair or maintenance.

4. Hygienic and stain resistant

Hygiene is a crucial factor for any product used in the home, particularly bathrooms. Being non-porous, Silestone worktops prevent bacterial or mould growth, making them a hygienic option over other materials.They are also stain and heat resistant.

5. Cost-effective and easy to install

No doubt Silestone worktops are a bit expensive, but they are a good investment, as they don't require frequent repairs and may last a lifetime. Their durability and capability to enhance the aesthetic appeal of your bathroom make them a cost-effective option.

They are also lighter than natural stones, like granite and marble. This makes Silestone easier to fit and install. The installation charges are usually lower for larger projects as well.

6. Styling options and appeal

There are various styling options available with these worktops. The options range from mitred edge detailing to concrete effect and giving the resemblance of a marble layout. These styling options give you control over the appeal of your bathroom.

You can greatly enhance the beauty and comfort of your bathroom with Silestone worktops. Customization options are widely available these days with most sellers and also allow you to make changes to the design. This way, you can have a worktop that suits your practical needs in the bathroom as much as the styling needs.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy
https://www.pexels.com/photo/shallow-focus-photography-of-yellow-sunflower-field-under-sunny-sky-1169084/

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
