Interior Design  /  June 1, 2018

Which material should you choose for your bathroom countertop? This question is often raised when a home is being furnished or remodelled.
In fact, the bathroom’s purpose has changed over the last few years. Once serving a basic role, the bathroom is now a space for pampering, wellness and personal care in the broadest sense. Consequently, more attention is being paid to stylishly furnishing the bathroom.

Thus, the materials need to meet both practical and aesthetic needs. Fortunately, there’s a growing, diverse selection of high-tech materials in a variety of shapes and styles.

With this in mind, here’s a brief guide to the cutting-edge materials for bathroom countertops and furniture.


Fenix® – the perfect solution for bathroom countertops and furniture
