What are the best Bathroom Worktop Materials?

Discover the ultimate bathroom worktop for you

If you’re looking to upgrade your bathroom with the addition of a new bathroom worktop, it’s important to understand the variety of different worktop materials that are available.

A bathroom worktop isn’t typically designed specifically for a bathroom. In fact, many of our worktop surfaces can be used for both the bathroom and kitchen.

But, we do recommend three particular worktop materials for use in a bathroom; marble, silestone and granite.

Marble Bathroom Countertopssurface marble

Marble is synonymous with luxury, and a bathroom countertop made out of the material will certainly help to bring a touch of affluence to any bathroom space.

Although typically used for fireplaces and kitchen worktops, its affluent appearance has meant that marble has started to become throughout bathrooms too.

Marble makes a perfect addition to any bathroom space, as it’s intricate, attractive swirls and streaks create a unique design feature that will be appreciated by all.

Although marble isn’t as durable as granite, it is a hard stone, so will withstand many years of wear and tear, which in a high footfall area, like a bathroom, is a must.

Although marble has its positives to be included in your bathroom design, it’s important to also be aware of the drawbacks of using the material.

Any bathroom is prone to spills, whether it’s expensive shower gels, disinfectants or other cleaning products. And, unfortunately, marble can be prone to staining.

The material is made from limestone, which is known for having a high level of ‘porosity’. This means that spots may occur on the surface as the stone absorbs any spills, which can ruin the luxurious look of the marble.

This can be avoided though, through the correct maintenance and protection.

Talking of maintenance, marble also requires some care and attention to keep it looking its best.

Marble should be treated regularly with a mild cleaner, particularly one without chlorine, and dried immediately to stop the porous marble material from absorbing the liquid.

Silestone Bathroom Countertopssurface silestone

Silestone is a very popular household brand for many reasons.

It consists of a compound of 90% natural quartz, which is a useful material for offering strength and durability.

Similarly to marble, Silestone can also be used across the kitchen and in bathrooms, and can also be used as floor and wall cladding, as it requires minimal joints.

Silestone is often used in these high traffic areas as it is highly durable and resistant to ensure it can cope with daily wear and tear.

For those looking for a bathroom worktop with minimal maintenance, this may be the option for you. Unlike marble, its low porosity means it won’t absorb any spills or disinfectants, meaning it stays looking as good as new, for longer.

And Silestone isn’t just a great option for those looking for a low maintenance bathroom worktop.

Our Silestone Bathroom Countertops are available in a wide variety of colours, which means you can pick a colour scheme to suit your style and preference, giving you versatility and resilience.

Granite Bathroom Countertopssurface granite

Granite is one of the most versatile materials out there and is a perfect solution for a bathroom space.

Not only is granite very strong, as it is formed under extreme pressure, but it’s also heatstain and scratch-resistant, meaning it can certainly stand the test of time in a busy bathroom location.

The variety of colour options granite is available in also makes it a great option for style-conscious home improvers.

Unlike marble, granite is also very easy to maintain, so no additional, costly cleaning solutions need to be purchased to ensure they stay looking as good as new.
