The very first thing to consider when choosing materials for the bathroom countertop and cabinets is the hot and humid environment of that room: water, toothpaste splashes, towels on the floor, and so on! With this enumeration, we can quickly say that it is better to have materials that are easy to clean. It’s better to have materials that wash well and leave no traces. However, there are many choices, here are a few possibilities. First of all, I must emphasize that it is imperative to know that MDF, although it is versatile, does not really stand up well to humid places. Whether it is for a bench, a mirror, or any other construction, do not prefer MDF in your bathroom even if it is tempting due to its economic side.
Solid wood, although loved throughout the house, tends to swell and be a little unstable in the bathroom. For the decorative elements of a cupboard, there is nothing to worry about, but for a countertop, make sure it is well protected with appropriate finishing products.
Melamine is sure to be affordable, easy to maintain, stable, and available in many styles. You can find the warmth of wood with melamine because it can imitate certain species rather well.
A Plated chipboard will also be an asset. Since this material is also very stable, it is a good choice to model a bathroom with style. Easy to maintain and moisture resistant, it remains a good choice even though it is a little more expensive.
Consider glass for your cabinets because it reflects light well and is very easy to maintain. Combined with a stable material frame it will make your bathroom a place to be noticed.
