Bathroom worktops from solid Granite, Quartz and Ceramic

Embellish your bathroom with a worktop or vanity top that not only looks good, but also lasts a lifetime.

Refurbishing a bathroom can be a complicated process. You need to opt for materials that are immune to damage from excessive moisture or staining. When it comes to bathroom walls cladding, most people opt for a range of tiles. The toilet and sink are usually composed of ceramic. Other fittings and elements are either made up of glass, metal or mirror. But what of bathroom countertops?

Laminate worktops or wooden surface worktops fail immediately in a humid environment, no matter how lacquered or water-resistant the wood is. Even the likes of cedar and white oak warp, bend or develop mould in creases, scratches or natural grains. Whether it takes two or ten years for damage to develop, unfortunately such materials rarely last forever. We therefore discourage clients from utilising wood or laminate as any worktops around your home. Least of all Bathroom worktops.

Why granite, ceramic and quartz surfaces work so well as bathroom worktops?

Opting for a granite, quartz or ceramic bathroom worktop is a perfect idea on account of their unmatched resistance. A bathroom worktop is constantly exposed dangers like water, moisture, make-up or toothpaste stains. Not to mention corrosive agents and chemicals like CIF and bleach. This means that if you want your worktops to last more than a few years, it’s recommended you opt for our three stone surfaces: granite, quartz, ceramic.

Investing in refurbishment or re-decoration of a bathroom is not a cheap task, and you certainly don’t want to repeat the process every few years. To ensure you have a solid, reliable foundation for your bathroom, stones like granite, quartz or ceramic are the only way to achieve the best, cost-efficient result.

Granite, quartz or ceramic (sintered-stone) are a perfect solution for kitchen worktops as they generally repel all damage. Not only are these products highly water-repellent, they resist impacts, scratches, but above all they do not chip or stain. An epitome of a perfect kitchen worktops product – a reliable material that helps avoid unnecessary damage for many decades but also one that increases your home value.

So, if granite, quartz and ceramic (fabricated into kitchen worktops) complement a kitchen so well, then the same will apply for bathroom worktops. You’ll no longer have to worry about toothpaste stains seeping into the wood worktop, the water warping your old laminate worktops or mould gathering in the laminate bathroom worktops cracks or dents. Quartz, granite or ceramic will suffice to provide you comfort, a guarantee of safety and a generally anxiety-free optimal experience.

Can quartz bathroom worktops improve your daily experience?

Absolutely. Not only the maintenance is almost effort-free, since glossy quartz worktops are easier to clean than laminate, but also any signs of stains, rust, grime or water rings simply do not stick to quartz bathroom worktops, nor do they get absorbed.

Owning a quartz, granite or ceramic countertop in bathrooms is also a good antidote for a stressful life. If you live in a constant hurry, anxious about damaging your countertops via daily use, then stone should solve your worries.

As is mentioned above, ceramic or quartz bathroom worktops are impregnable by water, acetone, liquids even acids, and no scratching or heavy blows will ever impair such solid countertop. But that’s not the only good quality worth mentioning. Ceramic or quartz worktops are also invulnerable to discolouration. In other words, no stain will be absorbed by a quartz bathroom worktop or impact its structure, therefore the surface will retain its original, pure and radiant colour for a lifetime.

So, if you wish to create a lavatory, bathroom or toilet of your dreams that will eliminate your anxiety and save you costs in the long run, we highly recommend a quartz, granite or ceramic surface.

Would you suggest tiling around a quartz bathroom worktop?

Yes, tiling of any kind will beautifully fit around your new quartz bathroom worktops. Stone is by nature sleek, glossy and smooth, therefore tiles are a great supplement.

However, please be mindful that you don’t need to stick to traditional bathroom tiles as other alternatives exist. For examples, our selection of thin 6mm sintered stone ceramic sheets that we can use to clad your bathroom. Not only is ceramic beautiful, but you can essentially clad a whole wall with one sheet. No more grouting or distasteful gaps – if you want a unified, cladded surface, made from a resistant material, then opting for sintered stone is your best bet.

If you’re quite clumsy, or conscious that you may drop something on your tiles, we also recommend ceramic or quartz as a flooring solution… Stone doesn’t break or smash like tiles, when met with heavy impact. it’s certainly something worth to consider.

Is marble a good surface for bathroom use?

The quick answer is that natural, quarried marble is not applicable for worktops as it’s a softer material. It is however ideal for other types of décor – marble can easily make for other types of accessories like shelves or windowsills in your bathroom.

The long answer is that while natural marble may not be an optimal material for bathroom use, there is an alternative which may be a good compromise.

Marble-lookalike quartz is a sturdy, resistant, everlasting composite made in marble effect styles. A quartz for bathroom worktops can be purchased in a variety of organic composition designs and range of colours.

Composite bathroom worktops are essentially a man-made material, with all the best, anti-scratch anti-stain properties. Composites are made with a natural look, based on stone quarried across the earth, purely in mind for lovers of organic, natural stone. You may choose quartz colours like Calacatta or Carrara, Marquina or other veined quartz worktops with intricate, stunning details that mimic that organic look.

Can I purchase my bathroom countertop from your offcuts? Is that cheaper?

Absolutely – most of our individual, one-off bathroom or kitchen worktops orders are made utilising our worktop offcut selection. Last year alone we’ve embellished over three dozen homes in Manchester with mini worktop projects, replacing old laminates and suchlike.

The process is simple. We invite you to our showroom, you browse our collection of kitchen worktop offcuts, select one product of your choice and commission us the order, detailing special requirements etc. We quote you, present the price (VAT inclusive) and we crack on with the project.

Our offcut selection contains plentiful quartz worktops products. If you wish to emulate a classic style to fit your rustic furniture, opting for Carrara, Blue Pearl or Crema Marfil may be ideal. Should you wish to get something more trendy or contemporary, the Black Mirror Quartz or Star Galaxy Granite styles will do the job. You may also go for a blend of old and new – quartz is a universal product, ideal for worktops for bathrooms or other projects.
