Less truly means more with modern kitchen design. It’s a sought-after look that is ever-changing and updating, but the one thing you shouldn’t have to constantly change in your kitchen is your worktop. And thanks to Caesarstone’s wide range of beautiful, durable surfaces you don’t have to. Together with our lifetime warranty, you’ll be making a purchase that will remain both modern and timeless, the perfect pairing.

One of our stunning contemporary surfaces was recently chosen by Piqu for their client's residential kitchen redesign. They were looking to bring a bright modern feel to their new kitchen and so Piqu chose 5151 Empira White - a timeless white surface with a base of the purest hue, delicately softened by the movement of shadows in an interplay of darkness and light. Complementing the fresh white kitchen furniture effortlessly, the subtle but classic marble detailing of this surface, truly suited the sophistication of this family kitchen.
