When it comes to timeless sophistication, black is hard to beat. Designers and architects seem to agree – black is the go-to colour of the moment, making an appearance in many of the most fashionable homes around the world.
It’s easy to see the appeal; black brings warmth and elegance to an interior, it’s versatile enough to work in both contemporary and classic spaces, and it goes with everything (to learn more about the dark trend, check out our article here). And of course, it’s one of the easiest colours to live with, hiding everyday dust, cooking spices and smears with ease – perfect for busy homes.
Luxurious black surfaces are a great way to get in on this popular look. Meet Caesarstone Dark – a stunning new collection of premium quartz finishes that can be used in endlessly creative ways throughout your home. This includes kitchen and bathroom benchtops, splashbacks, and even custom furniture such as a credenza or built-in television unit in the living area. And with slab sizes up to 3.5 metres x 1.44 metres, it’s easy to achieve that seamless, join-free look across large surfaces.
Set a chic, dark tone for your interior that still brings warmth and stylish versatility to your home. Black Tempal™ has soft mineral deposits that give rise to a delicate, light veil of warm whites across the slab. Image: Caesarstone
The decors in the Caesarstone Dark® collection are inspired by natural stones such as marble, slate and black travertine. They have all the beauty and impact of real stone, with none of the maintenance and upkeep hassles – they are scratch-, stain- and impact-resistant, non-porous and require no sealing or ongoing maintenance.
There are four different tones in the range, allowing you to create a striking and unique look in your abode. New Empira Black has a dark base with delicate white veining, evoking the look and feel of real marble. Another new decor, Black Tempal, features a light veil of warm whites set against a rich charcoal base, creating the tactile, urban feel of slate or travertine. Jet Black has a consistent yet subtle pattern, providing a rich and versatile foundation for a range of interior styles, while Vanilla Noir is a classic black with dramatic white veins that is guaranteed to make a statement wherever it’s used in your home.
Achieve sophistication and versatility with Jet Black™. This finish is ideal for light, monochromatic or modern black bathroom designs. As seen in the master ensuite of the Springwood,
The tones come in different finishes, but they’re all equally durable and easy to clean. Black Tempal comes in Caesarstone’s new ‘Natural’ finish, which has a slight texture and a captivating satin sheen. Empira Black, Jet Black and Vanilla Noir are all available in the brand’s elegant ‘Polished’ finish – high gloss and smooth to the touch.

Caesarstone offers a range of other appealing decors too; Caesarstone Concrete gives you the soft, textured look and feel of smooth concrete, while their Rough Concrete decor is a complex medley of grey tones with a distinctly coarse texture (while still being easy to clean) that’s perfect for creating a gritty, modern-industrial look.
Timeless, versatile and effortlessly chic – clearly, it’s time to walk on the dark side.
Luxurious Caesarstone finishes are available as inclusions and optional upgrades to all Carlisle Homes abodes.
