Durability is essential when selecting vanity tops. Invariably, your bathroom work surfaces will be exposed to a barrage of water, soap, cosmetics and cleaning substances. It is definitely wise to avoid porous materials, as these are less hygienic and prone to staining.
Here are a number of options:
– Tiling – tiles are a classic bathroom fixture, which come in a variety of stylish designs. However, grout lines are renowned for trapping dirt and going moldy over a relatively short period of time. The uneven surface is not ideal for a flat, horizontal worktop.
– Laminate – laminate is a cheap, non-porous material. However, the aesthetics are fairly poor and may ‘cheapen’ the overall appearance of the room. Laminate tends to tear, scratch and bulge easily.
– Marble – marble is one of the most popular bathroom materials. This high quality material looks stunning and luxurious in the bathroom, due to the reflective white properties, with natural veining patterns. A polished marble will provide a greater level of protection from staining, however marble can still stain.
– Composite – composite or quartz bathroom worktops are man-made, making them highly durable and non-porous. The colours and pattern choices are endless, allowing you to find a work surface that perfectly compliments your décor.
