Worktops for Bathrooms: An Introduction to Our Range
If you have ever wanted a little more room in your bathroom for storing toiletries – or simply want somewhere to mount a countertop basin or wash bowl – our new range of worktops for bathrooms would be ideal.
Our collection of laminate bathroom worktops encompasses a number of unique laminate finishes including wood-effect, stone-effect, and quartz-effect surfaces – one of which is sure to suit your own bathroom’s design.
Choosing Solid Wood or Laminate Worktops for Bathrooms
This range of laminate bathroom worktops has been collated with a variety of bathroom designs in mind. These worktops are water-resistant, and are a perfect width for fixing atop bathroom cabinets to provide enough space for mounting a sink.
Whilst these surfaces may be ideal for bathroom environments, we also commonly see customers using our solid wood worktops in bathrooms. If you would prefer to use any of our hardwood surfaces as worktops for bathrooms, we would recommend that you treat them with a suitably hard-wearing and water-resistant lacquer or varnish (rather than the Danish Oil we usually suggest).
Our Range of Laminate Worktops for Bathrooms
Oak Bathroom Laminate Worktop
This wood-effect oak bathroom laminate worktop recreates the look of full stave oak timber, and is ideal for homes with a natural or rustic theme.
These surfaces have a soft post-formed front edge, making a subtle statement in any bathroom. Edging strip is also included, allowing you to re-finish the worktop edges should the surface require cutting to size.
White Gloss Worktops for Bathrooms
If you are creating a clean and modern bathroom design, this gloss white bathroom worktop is the perfect choice for covering bathroom cabinets.
This glossy bathroom surface has a smooth post-formed edge profile that looks stunning alongside ceramic sinks and baths. It can be cut to size and re-finished easily using the included edging strip.
Black Gloss Bathroom Worktops
These gloss black bathroom worktops have the same finish as our our black granite ‘Nimbus’ laminate worktops for kitchens – a shiny black surface with grey artefacts that replicates the look of real granite, and is ideal for high-contrast modern settings.
These surfaces have a smooth post-formed edge, are resistant to water and scratches, and – at 28mm thick – can be fitted and finished on site without expert equipment.
Carrara Marble Gloss Bathroom Laminate Worktops
If you are looking for a laminate alternative to real marble, this Marble bathroom worktop is a great choice. The gloss surface imitates natural Italian marble, adding to the worktop’s realism.
This surface features a smooth post-formed edge that makes it a durable and family-friendly choice for bathrooms.
Black Sparkle Andromeda Bathroom Worktop
If you are looking for an ultra-modern surface to finish your bathroom with, these Black Sparkle bathroom worktops are a top choice. This contemporary surface features real metallic flakes that reflect light, making the worktop sparkle under both natural and artificial illumination.
Like our other laminate worktops for bathrooms, this surface has a smooth post-formed edge and includes edging strip to finish the exposed edges once the surface has been cut to size.
Laminate Bathroom Worktop Construction
Our laminate bathroom worktops measure 2 metres in length, and are 28mm thick – dimensions which are more suited to a bathroom than our regular range of laminate worktops.
To create these bathroom laminate worktops, a section of moisture-resistant fibreboard is covered with a decorative laminate overlay; this is then sealed tightly with pressure and heat to create a hygienic, hard-wearing and impact-resistant finish that protects against moisture ingress. To give additional water resistance, a foil impregnated with resin is fixed to the underside of each worktop, whilst a rebate with a polyurethane resin in-fill acts as an extra moisture barrier.
All of our laminate worktops are made in the UK, and have a smooth 6mm post-form edge profile, which means they have a smooth profile on the top of the front edge.
Cover Cabinets with Our Bathroom Worktops
If you are looking for a suitable surface to fix on top of your kitchen storage cabinets, consider one of our laminate bathroom worktops, which have the perfect proportions for use on bathroom cabinets. Of course, you may want to cut the surface to a shorter length, which is relatively easy to do at the point of installation. Edging strip is included to re-finish the ends of each bathroom worktop once it has been cut to size. If you would prefer, the team behind our laminate worktop cutting service can cut the surface to size and make custom holes for water pipes and drainage if you plan on mounting a sink on the surface.
Attaching these worktops to a cabinet is easy using our slotted angled brackets. These brackets allow you to screw the worktops directly onto the cabinets below, providing a sturdy and secure finish.
In certain instances, you may wish to simply screw straight through the top panel of the cabinet and into the underside of the laminate worktops. If doing so, we recommend using a washer and oversized hole on the cabinet to ensure that the surface has a little space to expand and contract with changes in environmental conditions.
Taking care of our laminate bathroom worktops is very easy, with only a few steps needed to ensure that your worktops remain in the best possible condition.
Mop up any spillages immediately; though the material is highly water resistant, this action will help to prevent staining.
For general cleaning, warm soapy water and a soft cloth will suffice. It is best to avoid abrasive chemicals and scourers.
