Silestone Yukon quartz falls within the River range of stones, featuring flowing, natural patterning which echoes the surface of rivers, streams and lakes.
Yukon is light and neutral in colour, and works superbly with white or pale kitchen cabinets, as well as with dark colours.
Silestone Yukon reflects the dappled light and subtle, swirling rhythm of a gently flowing river. Its neutral colouring has the understated look of an elegant off-white, making it a versatile match for a broad spectrum of kitchen cabinets, appliances and wall coverings. It is the perfect centrepiece for predominantly white and light kitchens, as well as for making a strong design contrast with dark units and panels.
Yukon quartz comes in three different Silestone finishes – polished, suede and volcano. The polished option carries a lovely shine on the ultra-smooth surface, while suede adds a subtle softness in look and touch. Volcano is a more rugged, hammered finished with a distinctly modern feel, which works superbly in Yukon.
Whichever finish you choose, the full range of Silestone edges give you options on the neatest bevel edges, softer, rounded bullnoses, and more sculpted looks. Silestone edges are flawlessly formed, and complete the exceptionally smart appearance of your worktop.
Among the attractions of Silestone quartz is the ease with which it can keep its good looks and be hygienically clean. Because it is so hard and virtually non-porous, it is highly resistant to stains and scratches, and it will not provide germs with a safe hiding place. The maintenance regime is simplicity itself:
- Wipe down to remove dust, crumbs and any other food particles
- Use a wet e-cloth or microfibre cloth to wipe away any spilled liquids, the sooner the better
- Dry your worktop with clean cloth
- For dried liquids or marks, wipe off with a kitchen cleaner (we recommend Oxy-Klenza™)
The durability of Silestone quartz is excellent, and clients have the reassurance of a 25-year manufacturer’s warranty. It is produced by Cosentino, a leading name in granite and quartz with a track record of supplying the highest quality stones for over 30 years. You will find Silestone not just in the world’s most stylish kitchens but also in bathrooms and living areas. The quartz is also favoured by architects for external cladding and paved areas, which is further testament to how extremely hard-wearing it is.
One of the secrets of Silestone’s toughness is the modern technology behind it. By combining quartz, minerals and recycled materials under extreme heat and pressure, the slabs become as durable as stones and granite formed over millennia in the natural world. The process also makes use of renewable energy and water which has been recycled. Silestone not only looks wonderful and performs brilliantly, it also has genuine environmental credentials.
Yukon is one of the neutral colour options available in Silestone. In a similar palette, you may like to consider Eternal Calacatta Gold, Pearl Jasmine, Eternal Statuario, White Arabesque, Snowy Ibiza and Ariel.
Why use County Stone?
At County Stone, we have been sourcing, cutting and fitting top quality kitchen worktops for over 20 years. We are a family business and we take particular pride in our reputation for complete customer satisfaction. We have perfected an approach which has earned us a growing number of 5-star reviews. The areas we cover are throughout East and West Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire and into London.
We start by talking you through the stone options for your worktop, either by phone, video or best of all, face-to-face at our showroom. We are completely independent, and you can rest assured that our advice is based on what our experience tells us will best achieve the results you have in mind. Uniquely for kitchen companies in the Sussex area, we will show you the stock of stones we keep at our workshop, giving you the opportunity to see the actual stone for your worktop.
We provide fast quotations for your preferred options. While we are fully aware that we work in a competitive world, we ask our clients to be wary of low cost companies and individuals who do not have the experience of working with high grade granite, quartz and other stones.
Once we have your agreement, we will visit your kitchen and measure up for a detailed and precise template for your worktop. Our workshop team cuts the slabs to size, including any recesses and awkward shapes. We prepare the cut stone with any fine details and polishing. The fitting team returns with your prepared worktop, and fits it accurately in place, ensuring that it is absolutely level and that there are no gaps at the edges or between sections. We make sure you are pleased with the result, and tidy up and leave your kitchen clean, tidy and ready for action.
You can book an appointment at our showroom, and we also provide virtual tours and video consultations. Either face-to-face or by video we will show samples of different stone slabs, and provide quotations for any worktop you choose.
