What Is Silestone?

Silestone is manufactured in Spain by Cosentino, a family-owned Spanish company that produces high-quality surfaces worldwide. Cosentino's Silestone countertops are low-maintenance (no sealing or polishing required) and highly resistant to stains and bacteria. Durable and available in a range of colors, Silestone countertops make a great choice for kitchen renovations—and the Silestone cost even includes a 25-year transferable warranty.

Several factors can impact Silestone pricing, including the thickness and quality of the slab, the edgework, and corner details. The typical Silestone countertop is about 3/4-inch thick and generally requires plywood support beneath. If you upgrade to a 1 1/4-inch-thick Silestone counter, you'll pay more for the slab but won't need to budget for plywood. 

Silestone Pricing per Square Foot

How much does Silestone cost? Generally, you'll pay around $50 to $100 per square foot for 3/4-inch-thick Silestone countertops, not including the installation price. However, Silestone is sold in slabs, so you may have to buy more square footage than your project calls for.

Silestone Slab Cost

You can purchase Silestone slabs in two sizes: standard and jumbo. Jumbo slabs are larger and cost more, but the price per square foot is lower for comparable styles.


A standard Silestone slab is 120 by 55 inches, or roughly 46 square feet. For a smaller kitchen or bathroom renovation, a standard slab may be more cost-effective than a jumbo slab.


Jumbo Silestone slabs are slightly larger than standard ones, at 56 square feet or around 128 by 63 inches. Think of jumbo slabs as buying in bulk. For larger projects, buying a jumbo slab could be more cost-efficient. But some projects may require a combination of standard and jumbo slabs for the best price point.

Silestone Countertop Cost Factors

While Silestone countertops cost $50 to $100 on average, the price can increase depending on edgework and corners, increased thickness, or any special cutouts and additional customizations.

Edging and Corner Treatments

Silestone prices can vary significantly if you opt for special edges and corners. The standard treatment is a squared edge with rounded corners, costing the typical $50 to $100 per square foot.

Expect to pay around $15 to $30 more per linear foot for specialty edges. Bullnose edges have a curved top, while the popular ogee edge has an "s" curl. Each supplier may offer different edges, so ask to see a catalog and discuss the price points for the edge you want.

Other edges include:

  • Demi-bullnose: Rounded top, flat bottom

  • Bevel: Similar to the demi-bullnose but with a flatter edge on top

  • Waterfall: A softer version of the standard edge

  • Dupont: Features a sharp drop-off that rounds out

These are the edges normally available on 3/4-inch-thick Silestone. With thicker slabs, you can get more intricate designs, such as the “Triple Pencil,” which features three small rounded edges.


A standard Silestone countertop is 3/4 inches thick. You can factor in about $5 per square foot moreto upgrade to a 1 1/2-inch-thick countertop. Labor costs may also increase because the countertops are heavier and thus more difficult to work with.

Cutouts and Other Customizations

Cost may increase if your project includes cutouts for sinks and stovetops, as well as special customizations for the unique shape of your kitchen. Cutouts lead to wasted materials, and if the installer is cutting unique shapes on site, they may increase their overall labor cost.

Silestone vs. Caesarstone or Cambria Price

Silestone countertops cost around $3,500, or roughly $50 to $100 per square foot. Depending on the amount of edgework and the thickness, you could spend up to $200 per square foot. This makes Silestone countertops comparable in cost to Cambria quartz, which runs from $60 to $150 per square foot. Cambria is another brand of countertop based in the U.S. and known for making high-quality countertops out of quartz.

The cost of Caesarstone countertops, however, runs from $55 to $400 per square foot or more, which can make it more expensive than Silestone. However, basic Caesarstone countertops range from $55 to $75 per square foot, more in line with standard Silestone countertops. Caesarstone is another brand of countertop known for its extensive color catalog, high-quality quartz, vanity tops, flooring, and even wall cladding.

If these are too expensive for your kitchen renovation, consider the cost of Corian countertops, about $45 to $65 per square foot. Corian is an alternative to quartz; the brand makes elegant and durable countertops that are generally more affordable.

DIY Silestone Installation vs. Hiring a Professional

As with all countertop installs, finding a countertop contractor is best to handle your project. Local quartz countertop professionals can better move and place the Silestone slab without it breaking. They can also get the corners, edging, and sink cutout just right without wasting materials. Hiring a professional can save you money in the long run for those reasons, especially if you don't have direct experience installing countertops.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Silestone?

Silestone is a human-made material created by Cosentino using 94% natural quartz and 6% resin, plus pigment and other binding agents. That combo allows the natural beauty of quartz to shine through the rich pigments.

Quartz is one of the hardest materials, only surpassed by topaz, sapphire, and diamond. The quartz content in Silestone is what gives it its remarkable strength, while the pigment is what makes Silestone available in a variety of colors.

What are the pros and cons of Silestone?

  • Offers the beauty of natural quartz with a wider color and pattern selection

  • Resists stains, scratches, acid etching, and impacts

  • Wipes clean with plain soap and water

  • Never needs sealing or other maintenance

Despite those benefits, Silestone countertops aren’t for everyone because:

  • It doesn’t look like true natural stone.

  • The materials are often more expensive upfront.

  • Its heavier build needs more support underneath.

It’s even possible to find grades featuring vivid hues like magenta, sky blue, and orange.

  • Kitchen countertops

  • Bathroom countertops
