Bathroom surfaces from Caesarstone®

November 27th, 2013

Caesarstone® now brings fresh ideas and new levels of luxury, timeless elegance and functionality to the bathroom.

The recent introduction of six 13mm slab thickness options into the Classico Collection, including four of the popular selling marble inspired Supernatural designs now enable Caesarstone® slabs to be used in vertical applications such as bathroom wall panels.

Caesarstone® surfaces are not only perfect for bathroom and shower wall panels but also vanities, bath surrounds, inset shelving, shower recesses and window sills. Caesarstone’s surfaces offer endless design possibilities to create different bathroom styles.

Our surfaces are non-porous, durable and resistant to stains, scratches, common household chemicals, mould and mildew making them ideal for wet areas delivering minimal maintenance to keep surfaces looking like new for years to come.

The large floor to ceiling panel size options allow for less joins, and especially allow the creation of clean minimal modern spaces.

Caesarstone Motivo® ideal for commercial spaces

November 22nd, 2013



The unique tactile quality and stylish design combined with the strength and durability of quartz has made Caesarstone’s Motivo patterned texture surfaces a popular choice for vertical wall panels and horizontal application in bars, clubs, restaurants and other commercial spaces wanting to add that WOW factor without compromising on practicality.

Available in both Lace and Crocodile textured motifs, the Motivo collection makes a bold aesthetic statement while at the same time offering a stain and scratch resistant work surface suitable for even the busiest bars, clubs and wet areas.

Motivo surfaces are easy to clean and maintain, never require sealing and are virtually non-porous while the large panel sizes minimize joins and grout lines to create a seamless, high-quality finish perfect for high-end spaces over alternatives such as ceramic tiles and wallpaper.

The contrasting raised polished pattern and matte backdrop elegantly captures and diffuses light to create a dynamic look which is ideal for bench tops, splashbacks, wall paneling, entrance foyers, feature panels and custom-made furniture.

Motivo is available in 2 standard designs including:

  • Lace – An intricate, floral pattern with elegant & delicate detail. This versatile design is available in the popular shade of Snow and will suit many applications.
  • Crocodile - A sophisticated & bold pattern that will add understated glamour to any project. Crocodile is highly tactile and will add depth, intrigue and mood to any design. Available in both Snow and Jet Black.

These stunning, modern surfaces can be used as a standalone feature or incorporated into the textural layering of a range of beautiful materials and patterns.

As with all Caesarstone surfaces, Motivo® is backed with a 10 Year Limited Warranty.

- as well as the team from ‘The Granite and Marble Fitters Cairns’ – for choosing Chris and myself to win a Caesarstone kitchen bench. Having heard your advertisement on the radio buy chance and not knowing of your company’s existence we thought we would enter the competition giving it our best shot. From meeting you both for the first time we have found you very easy to work with and would recommend the business to others.

As we said in our contest entry, we had our heart set on White Shimmer and we are so happy with how wonderful it looks.  I cannot begin to tell you how happy I was to finally banish the old kitchen bench – the makeshift internal door sitting on top of 2 x work bench horses with a hole cut out for the sink!
