Quartz Bathroom Benchtops
Quartzite is a natural stone that is remarkably hard, durable and beautiful.
Due to its aesthetic appeal and durability, quartzite or quartz has gained significant popularity among designers and architects as a decorative stone, particularly for bathroom benchtops. Its remarkable resistance to stains and hard-wearing surface makes it an ideal choice for anyone who seeks both style and practicality in their countertops.
Marble Bathroom Benchtops
Marble has stood the test of time as the epitome of elegance and remains a sought-after choice for stone bathroom benchtops.
Marble is a highly coveted natural stone that is renowned for its beautiful veining and luxurious appearance. While it is softer and more delicate compared to other stones, it is perfect for intricate designs and sculpting, making it an excellent choice for bathroom benchtops.
On the Gold Coast, Calacatta, Carrara, and Elba are the most popular marble options for bathroom benchtops, offering a luxury touch to any bathroom. However, while marble is ideal for bathroom benchtops, it isn’t resistant to stains and scratches.
Granite Bathroom Benchtops
Granite is a beautiful natural stone with exceptional durability.
Granite is a highly durable natural stone that is incredibly hard-wearing and resistant to abrasion, impacts, scratches, etching, and weathering. Its chemical properties make it an ideal material for bathroom benchtops, where it can withstand daily wear and tear.
While black, white, pink, and grey are the most common granite colors, it’s also available in shades of blue, green, brown, and red, providing a versatile range of options to suit any bathroom design.
Concrete Bathroom Benchtops
Concrete benchtops have become a popular choice for bathrooms as they are robust and durable.
A concrete bathroom benchtop is crafted from a combination of cement, aggregates, and water, which is then poured into a mold and cured to create a sturdy and long-lasting surface.
While concrete is a popular material for bathroom benchtops, it’s also a common choice for kitchen benchtops, laundry benchtops and outdoor entertainment areas, due to its durability and versatility.
Caesarstone Bathroom Benchtops
Caesarstone is renowned for its extensive array of designs and colours, as well as its versatility and exceptional durability.
Caesarstone, an engineered stone surface made by blending natural quartz with polymer resins and pigments, is a durable, non-porous material that resists scratches, stains, and heat.
It is easy to clean and maintain, making it a preferred choice for bathroom benchtops and kitchen countertops, as well as splashbacks, walls, and flooring.
Stone Benchtop Features
A mitred edge is a stylish option for stone bathroom benchtops. This technique involves cutting two pieces of stone at a 45-degree angle and joining them seamlessly, resulting in a sleek and modern appearance.
Mitred edges are commonly used for stone vanity tops and can create a waterfall effect. This technique works well with a variety of stone materials such as granite, marble, and quartzite, making it a versatile choice for bathroom renovations.
Banks Benchtops offers luxurious stone bathroom benchtops with a waterfall edge profile. This design extends the stone benchtop vertically down the sides, creating a stunning cascading effect like a waterfall.
The waterfall edge is a great choice for anyone seeking a sleek and contemporary look for their bathroom design. Banks Benchtops provides the waterfall profile for engineered, marble, quartzite, and granite bathroom benchtops, for the perfect finish to your bathroom design.
When it comes to stone bathroom benchtops, the thickness of the slab does not affect the design, only the appearance.
At Banks Benchtops, we offer the option of either mitred benchtops or solid 30mm stone benchtops. While mitred benchtops provide a seamless look, solid stone benchtops can be a great alternative. They require less manufacturing, which makes them more cost-effective while still offering a stylish and durable solution for bathroom benchtops.
For stone bathroom benchtops, there are three finishes available: polished, matt/honed, and textured. A polished finish is the most luxurious option, where the stone surface is polished to the highest level, resulting in a shiny and elegant appearance with a deep color tone. On the other hand, a matt or honed finish offers a less reflective surface and a more subdued appearance.
Textured finishes are exclusive to natural stone materials. A leather finish enhances the stone’s natural appearance while remaining easy to clean. A flamed finish, typically used for granite benchtops, is rougher and provides a more rugged look. Regardless of the chosen finish, stone offers durability and longevity, making it an excellent choice for bathroom benchtops.
If you’re considering a stone benchtop for your bathroom, it’s an excellent opportunity to also install an undermount sink. Undermount sinks are installed beneath the benchtop surface, creating a seamless and streamlined appearance that enhances the overall aesthetic of the bathroom.
Undermount sinks are particularly suitable for minimalist bathroom designs and add a modern and sophisticated touch. They also eliminate the need for additional cutting or drilling into the benchtop, resulting in a cleaner and more elegant finish. Choose an undermount sink to complement your stone bathroom benchtop and elevate your bathroom design.
Engineered, quartzite, marble, granite, concrete and Caesarstone are all popular choices for bathroom benchtops due to their durability and aesthetic appeal.
Quartzite is a hard-wearing and stain-resistant natural stone that offers unparalleled quality and a beautiful aesthetic.
Granite is a highly durable natural stone that can withstand daily wear and tear, making it ideal for bathroom benchtops. It is also available in a versatile range of colors.
Stone bathroom benchtops require simple cleaning with warm water or a mild household cleaner and a soft cloth or sponge, while avoiding the use of harsh chemicals and abrasive materials. Avoid direct contact with acidic or corrosive substances. Marble and granite bathroom benchtops need to be sealed up to once a year, whereas engineered stone never needs to be sealed.
Caesarstone is an engineered stone surface made by blending natural quartz with polymer resins and pigments. It is a durable, non-porous material that resists scratches, stains, and heat, making it a preferred choice for bathroom benchtops.
