Those who are designing their own bathroom right now can greatly benefit from the information we have prepared and presented here, as we talk about choosing the best materials, cleaning and maintenance.

How to choose a material?

The choice of material for bathroom worktops is not easy. the market is saturated with great materials which are hard, durable and resistant to the outside factors (most notably – moisture). You can choose from natural stone and wood (as long as it is waterproofed well). Steel, glass, artificial materials, like laminates and conglomerates, and ceramic tiles are also popular nowadays. All have a smooth surface which is very resistant to stains and dirt. They are incredibly easy and pleasant to clean.

Bathroom worktops – maintenance

No matter what type of material you have chosen for the bathroom worktops, you should remember a couple of simple rules regarding their cleaning and maintenance, so you can be sure they will still look good after many years of use and won’t be permanently damaged. Basic cleaning can be performed using a damp cloth with a soft detergent (like dishwashing liquid of some sort). Each stain should be wiped as soon as possible, as when they dry they will be much harder to get rid of. After such simple washing you have to dry the surface with soft cloth or towel. Do not use any strong cleaning products, especially those with acid as one of the ingredients, as it can permanently change and decolorize the structure of the worktop. Stone bathroom worktops are especially vulnerable , thus they should be properly waterproofed before installation and the process should be repeated regularly. What else can be dangerous? Try not to slide anything on the surface, as it can lead to scratches. Some can be polished, but the deeper ones may stay on your worktop for life and you may have to replace a whole worktop. You should be also careful with higher temperatures which can damage wooden and artificial worktops – remember to check where you put your hair irons and other appliances generating heat.

Maintenance and renovation

Sooner or later, everything may be damaged through normal use and even the hardest material may be scratched or cracked. Do not panic if you notice a small damage, as most materials used in manufacturing bathroom worktops (read more on www.bespoke-worktops.co.uk) can be renovated. Stone, wood, steel, conglomerate or glass can be polished to remove the visible scratches. In tile surfaces removing a damaged tile and replacing it with new one is often enough. You can do all of those repairs yourself, but if you are not sure you are up to the task, you can always ask a specialist. As for the maintenance – it is necessary for natural materials, stone and wood, to make them impervious to water. Stone can be easily waterproofed using special chemicals, while wood can be oiled or lacquered to protect its surface.
