Reading: Design and Specification

Design and Specification

We create quartz surfaces that push the boundaries of creativity and design. Our wide range of colors comes in two sizes and a variety of finishes and edge-profiles, catering to different style tastes and practical applications, from kitchen countertops to bathroom vanities, laundry rooms, and more.

Caesarstone Quartz Finishes

Caesarstone offers a variety of five finishes, dressing the surface in a way that brings out the best in the design while ensuring it remains long-lasting without the need for sealants or wax.

Natural

A slightly textured satin sheen, our Natural finish conjures up the emotional caress of stone, warm, grainy, and uniquely sensorial. It gently reflects light, enhancing the depth of color and pattern, especially on darker shades. Our Natural finish combines the appeal of texture one can actually feel – with the practicality of the minimal care and maintenance synonymous with all Caesarstone products.

Polished

With its high-gloss smoothness, Polished finish emphasizes the surface features with its stunning luster. It attracts light and reflects it with elegance, illuminating the space around it with a natural brilliance that makes it seem larger and luxurious. Our standard finish is designed for life, requiring minimal care and maintenance.

Honed

Smooth to the touch and soft on the eye, Honed finish offers a special organic luminosity. Its satin sheen reflects light, while retaining a special shine that penetrates the surface to highlight deeper dimensions.

Concrete 

A lightly textured complexion, Concrete finish is inspired by the granular tactility of smooth concrete with a soft earthiness quality and low light reflection. Its grainy touch evokes the sensation of an organic material that is powerfully strong.

Rough

A rich and complex rugged look, a Rough finish is achieved by advanced technologies designed to create a compelling tactile effect. It offers the coarse experience of industrial materials for distinctively gravelly surfaces yet still smooth enough for practical cleaning. It highlights patinas and variations in the slab design, creating added depth and intrigue. Applications featuring multiple slabs will experience inherent visual differences.

Please note that Honed, Concrete and Rough finishes require more cleaning than our Polished finishes. Since there is more exposed surface area with these finishes, metal marks, fingerprints and other signs of daily living will show. Most of these marks can be removed with little effort and non-abrasive cleaning products such as Soft Scrub Liquid Gel. Caesarstone retains its beauty without sealants or waxes. Because of the unique properties, our photos and website images are not fully representative of the surface. When considering these finishes, please order a sample or view a full slab at a retail location.

Available Edges

All Caesarstone slabs come with a standard engineered cut, ready for experienced stonemasons to fabricate the surface to your specifications. Your surface’s edge profile can be custom-designed by any fabricator in a variety of thicknesses that inspire your design.

Choosing the right edge profile for your specific design style and aesthetic adds the all-important finishing touches to your surface and optimizes your design.

We recommend taking the following factors into consideration:

  • All exposed edges should be fabricated and finished to the same finish as the surface.
  • The top and bottom of the edges must be rounded. Do not create square edges, as the larger the surface area of the edge (i.e., radius), the more resistant it is to chip.
  • All edges should have a minimum radius on any edge profile of 3 mm to 4 mm. For added durability, the best option is a 6 mm radius.
  • Undermount sinks should have a minimum radius of 6mm on the upper edge of the Caesarstone.
