The bathroom is one of the most intimate rooms in our home and that is why it should look beautiful and clean. A stylish bathroom countertop opens up the space and plays a huge role in the perfect interior. But, not every surface is suitable for such a wet and humid room, and the maintenance is very different to that of a kitchen worktop. Today we’re going to share with you how to keep your bathroom countertop healthy and looking good for many years.
Choose the right countertop for the bathroom
Not every material is suitable for placing in the bathroom, as the room is damp. Porous surfaces easily become a breeding ground for mold and bacteria. Precisely for this, the right material for a countertop in the bathroom is smooth. Countertops made from Cimstone stone have a completely smooth surface as well as a certificate of hygienicity. Therefore they are 100% suitable for lining bathrooms and sanitary facilities.
A quality countertop suitable for the bathroom should have a moisture-resistant, corrosion-resistant surface. Cimstone is technically a quartz-based stone, making it applicable for use in any bathroom.
Dry the bathroom countertop regularly
Although the bathroom countertop should be waterproof, it is advisable to dry it regularly. You can do this with a soft dry cloth, drying the water in circular motions. Of course, you don’t have to do this all the time, but only when you see water on the countertop itself.
Cimstone countertops do not need special cleaning. Using a soft cloth is quite enough to bring back the shine of the countertop. If it is dry, you can use a slightly damp cloth.
Many people place all their cosmetics and other small items on the countertop. This shouldn’t be a problem, but it will make cleaning much more difficult, lead to stains and last but not least – it won’t look very good. By using organizers, you will make cleaning easier, protect the countertop, make the bathroom much more stylish and at the same time, everything will still be at your fingertips.
Clean the countertop regularly
The bathroom is home to a lot of bacteria, so you should clean the countertop regularly. If you’ve chosen Cimstone stone to clad the countertop in your intimate space, then cleaning will be easier than you expect. Wiping with a damp cloth will bring back its shine, and if you need a more serious cleaning, using a soft sponge and a little liquid detergent is quite enough.
Ventilation is extremely important for the maintenance of the bathroom as well as the countertop in it. Due to the humidity, mould and mildew often form, so a fan is a very good solution in case you don’t have a window. Air circulation will also help avoid unpleasant odours.
The secret to having a beautiful and sturdy countertop in your bathroom is just the right maintenance. Maintenance including easy and quick cleaning will definitely prolong the life of the surfaces in the sanitary room, keeping them looking good for a long time.
