Considering all the factors that are mentioned below; the materials that are used for the construction of worktop gain importance. Not only must it be durable and resistant to stains, scratches, heat and moisture but also it must suit your budget. A well-chosen worktop will transform a good bath area into a great one.
If you are planning your bathroom or remodeling your current one, the sheer choice of countertops available in the market is so massive that it may leave you in a dilemma as to which one to finalise. For a product such as this, of all the other factors, a significant one to consider is the material.
Granite is a popular material used in worktops, found in a wide variety of colours and finishes and offers good stain resistance, strength and is easy to maintain. However, Granite is expensive, so if your budget is tight, you may consider other materials like quartz, solid surface, engineered stone, composite marble, laminate, tempered glass and tile.
Another versatile material is concrete that allows you the freedom to cut and shape to your specific requirements. Wooden countertops are a stylish choice when you want a seamless look for your wooden vanities. But these may be confined to powder rooms or those that are less frequently used.
Worktops come in different lengths; ranging from 2000mm for a long run of work surface incorporating a number of cabinets, to 700mm & 600mm to 300mm for a single cabinet. They come in depths of 337mm or 365mm and at a height of 28mm or 22mm depending on the range. They maybe rounded (bull nosed) or square edged.
