Intense White Caesarstone review by The Worktop Library in London will help you decide if this product is a good option for your kitchen.

If there is anything to say about this product, everyone is talking about it.

What is Caesarstone?

Caesarstone is the world’s leading brand of quartz surfaces. Interior designers and architects use it in homes and workplaces to create stunning kitchens and bathrooms featuring intensely white, hygienic surfaces. In addition, the brand incorporates a comprehensive range of textures that you can use for flooring, walls, countertops, garden and pool features, and commercial projects. We will follow with a Caesarstone Intense White review.


Calculating the costs per square meter of a Caesarstone worktop means knowing the following data: dimensions, colour, type of edges, whether you need cut-outs for your sink and hob, and other accessories. Pulling up an example of Caesarstone prices, we can give you a sense of the cost per square meter of an Intense White Caesarstone worktop:

  • Intense White 20mm, m2 price £386+vat
  • Caesarstone Intense White 20mm linear metre price £193+vat
  • Intense White 30mm, m2 price £433+vat
  • Intense White 30mm linear metre price £216+vat


Rather than taking the above prices as such, you must consider that the costs of square and linear metres of Intense White by Caesarstone reduce based on volume. So, if you have a kitchen that requires two slabs of this colour, you will find that the overall prices will be reduced. Prices drop because transport costs for your slabs depend on the location of your property, as opposed to the amount of material you require for your kitchen or bathroom.

Characteristics of Caesarstone Intense White Quartz


According to the manufacturer, Intense White ‘offers a modern, crisp white base endowed with light speckles of grey’. Besides, white quartz is a trendy colour for kitchen worktops. White is a light, sophisticated, and minimalistic colour, making it a timeless classic. Keeping up with the latest design trends is critical for your home, so Caesarstone Intense White worktops are superb.

When we check a physical sample of Intense White by Caesarstone, we can feel the beauty of the material in terms of its body composition, shade and feel:

The colours of the grey and white Caesarstone worktops are the most popular in the United Kingdom. These have become decorative classics because they add luminosity and give an aura of openness to small kitchen and bathroom areas.

Caesarstone is a publicly traded company that started producing quartz surfaces in 1987. It sells its products in over 50 countries and boasts an extensive distribution network.

Thickness and surface finish

In Caesarstone kitchens, you can buy any of their quartz in three thicknesses, which are the most popular: 13mm, 20mm and 30mm. Intense White quartz’s most popular thickness is 20mm because you can use it as a worktop and splashback.

Unlike other materials, Intense White is available in a Concrete Finish. Caesarstone Concrete finish colours strive to create a smooth and durable surface to decorate homes and commercial premises when it comes to finishes. The concrete effect slabs offer a one-stop, seamless solution to create original designs with large pieces like kitchen islands. Also, this Caesarstone colour fits incredibly well with white, black, or grey kitchen cabinets.

Technical Characteristics

Caesarstone Quartz is available in various sizes, making it suitable for multiple applications. Kitchen worktops, kitchen islands, bathroom vanities, and countertops are available. With this, one of the main reasons for the versatility of this product is its lightweight attribute when compared to other stones like granite or marble:

Thickness        Slab Weight         Slab Weight/m2
30 mm            290-306 kg           66-70 kg/m2
20 mm            189-210 kg           43-48 kg/m2
13 mm            127-143 kg           29-33 kg/m2

Also, because of its superior strength and durability, you can use thinner slabs to save weight in certain areas or more significant pieces to reduce the number of joints in a panel. Besides the standard slab sizes, the new Caesarstone Jumbo slabs of 3240 mm x 1640 mm make it easier to create large designs with fewer joints.

Edge profiles

Their innate flexibility makes edge profiles easy to create on Caesarstone surfaces. The most popular Caesarstone edge profile is a polished pencil edge, followed by the bevel edge. In addition to these edges, you will find that you can design most edges, including mitre, full bullnose and other intricate types, to suit your requirements.

Advantages of using Intense White by Caesarstone

Intense White has many advantages over other worktop materials because of its manufacturing process and superior quality. As an example, you can check the below comparison chart of Caesarstone vs other worktop products:

Manufacturing and Performance

Our Intense White review is from approximately 93 per cent pure quartz (the third toughest mineral on the planet) combined with high-quality resins and pigments. Then, the mix is compacted under Vibro-compression, resulting in non-porous and very dense slabs. A little-known fact is that you can check whether your worktop is an original Caesarstone by checking the underside of the slab, which has an underside print with a Caesarstone’s trademark for identification purposes.

Below, you can see some of the benefits of using this stunning quartz surface in kitchens:

  • Strong yet flexible
  • Scratch-resistant
  • Extremely stain-resistant
  • Resistant to many household chemicals, solvents, and acids
  • Does not allow the proliferation of mould or germs
  • Highly heat-resistant
  • Beautiful and long-lasting
The above video shows the many applications of Caesarstone Intense White Quartz.

Additional Protection

  • Scratches: due to its composition, it’s almost impossible to scratch a Caesarstone kitchen worktop. You can test its surface by scratching an Intense White quartz sample with a knife or car keys.
  • Chips and bumps: Caesarstone boasts excellent protection against accidental knocks and bumps. But it would be best if you took care when taking items off your dishwasher abruptly, as it can chip its edges, which can be sharp and, therefore, the most fragile part of the material.
  • Stains: since it is virtually non-porous, Intense White doesn’t absorb liquids, nor will it stain when exposed to coloured substances from juice, coffee, or tea. But it would help to use a trivet or chopping board when cooking with spices like turmeric. Otherwise, it will take time to remove it from the surface.
  • Cleaning: Caesarstone offers the look and feel of marble and granite, but it does not require sealants. For this reason, you won’t need to worry about dedicated maintenance or special care.


Although Intense White Caesarstone kitchen worktops satisfy the key indicators by which we measure the quality of a surface, they also come with some weaknesses and issues:

  • UV Rays: Intense White, like most Caesarstone colours, should not be exposed for long periods to UV rays. As a result, the stone may discolour or, what many call, ‘get a tan’. For this reason, the manufacturer recently launched the Caesarstone Outdoor Collection, a series of colours you can use indoors and outdoors.
  • Caesarstone m2 price: Being one of the most popular worktop materials, we have proved over time that this is a value product due to its price-performance ratio. Although you can find cheaper comparative products, Caesarstone’s high quality is second to none. We have only encountered one incident with Caesarstone worktops over the last fifteen years, which requires immediate action from the company to rectify.

Additional considerations

  • Heat resistance: Caesarstone can withstand heat up to 150C. Compared to other products like porcelain and ceramic (these can take up to 300C), it has lower heat resistance. At the same time, 150C of heat is an excellent temperature resistance if you carry standard duties in your kitchen. In addition, you can always get a chopping board made of the same material. It will come in handy if you need to place hot items from the oven, avoiding direct contact with your worktops.
  • Repair: before, we mentioned that Caesarstone is difficult to chip. Besides, there are several brands of resin that you can use to repair chips on its surface. But we recommend calling a professional, as the repair result will vary according to the size, the colour, and the area of the worktop that has been damaged.
  • Chemicals: Caesarstone is unaffected by even the most potent acids, including hydrochloric acid, muriatic acid, nitric acid, and sulfuric acid. But we recommend wiping off any Hydrofluoric acid spills immediately because the acid will react with the quartz on the surface.

Caesarstone or marble. Which is better?

Today, we will evaluate and differentiate two of the most popular products used in kitchens and bathrooms in UK homes.

What is better, Caesarstone or marble?

Firstly, we’d like to say that Marble and Caesarstone are excellent worktop materials with incredible similarities. Therefore, the main difference between these two materials lies in their composition.

While marble has calcium in its mineral makeup, Caesarstone has pure quartz crystals. Thus, if acids from foods spilt over your worktops, Caesarstone performs perfectly well.

But when it comes to marble, acids can etch its surface, leaving permanent marks. On the other hand, whilst you can only use Intense White in interiors, you can use marble indoors and outdoors.

  • Heat Resistance: One reason marble has been favoured since ancient times is its high heat resistance. Although Caesarstone withstands up to 150C of heat, we can say the same about marble. Placing hot items on your marble worktop directly from the oven may result in thermal shock. Hence, we recommend using a trivet to place very hot objects on either of these materials.
  • Resistance to chips and scratches: Marble and Caesarstone are stones with remarkably high resistance to chips and scratches. Therefore, don’t worry about chopping or cutting on their surfaces. Both choices will last for decades in good condition in your bathroom or as a kitchen worktop. Besides this, we can confirm that Caesarstone is superior to marble due to the strength of quartz.


Maintenance of Caesarstone vs Marble

  • Maintenance: Marble worktops offer low porosity, although you must apply sealants approximately every other year if it wears off. Not only that sealing the surface will protect your marble, but it will also keep its lustre. In contrast, Caesarstone is non-porous. Therefore no sealants are ever required to protect the surfaces. Besides, the manufacturer warrants all its materials with a 25-year warranty.
  • Cleaning: Both Caesarstone and marble worktops are easy to clean. But in the case of marble, you must use Ph-balanced soap. In addition, using abrasive cleaners may alter the marble’s surface. In contrast, you can clean Intense White quartz with regular household cleaners. Finally, use a window cleaning spray and a microfiber cloth to keep your Caesarstone worktops as if they were the first day you purchased them.


What is more expensive? White Marble or Intense White quartz by Caesarstone?

Standard White marble, such as Carrara and Intense White Caesarstone, carries similar material and installation costs. But if you are looking for rare types of marble, like Calacatta or Statuario, you can expect higher prices when compared to any white quartz stone. Due to scarcity, transportation, and the location of a given marble, prices can vary from type to type. Nevertheless, you can expect prices without high volatility and fluctuations with manufactured products.


Following our extensive Intense White quartz review, we conclude that this white quartz stone is a good investment for any property. Although it isn’t the cheapest quartz product on the market, its price/quality ratio is up to the mark. Therefore, this is the product for you if you want a sublime product to transform your home or office.
