    The value of considered materials in bathroom design

    Bathroom specialists Utopia Projects explains why designers and architects should select materials that can be used for any and all surfaces…

    It’s becoming increasingly popular among clients to create bathrooms which are fluid in design, using materials which can be utilised for any and all surfaces within the room. Cosentino, a parent company for many own brand materials, have introduced a Bathroom Collection using two of their brands.

    The first, Silestone, is the world’s leading quartz surface manufacture. This is mainly due to how durable it is, making it perfect for high traffic areas such as Kitchens and Bathrooms. Dekton is a revolution in stone surfaces, defined as ultra-compact this man made material is highly resistant to stains, impact, heat, pretty much anything.

    One of the key characteristics that makes the Silestone & Dekton Bathroom Collection concept unique is its large format. Both materials allow for the creation of a complete bathroom in one single material, giving the space better harmony with aesthetic lines. The nature of these stone materials is low porosity, this combined with minimal joints ensures each surface is extremely hygienic; perfect for a bathroom.

    Its collection triumphs with exclusive and revolutionary design in the world of bathrooms, offering custom-made shower trays and basins that fit like a glove into any available space. The sandblasted or soft sandblasted finishes ensure the shower trays’ anti-slip properties, making them completely safe. Silestone and Dekton offer a wide range of colours, enabling your customers to choose a shade that fits in perfectly with their colour scheme and to match their wash-hand basin.

    The possibilities of design are endless as most colours are also available in large format tiles for wall and floor cladding, as well as matching niche inserts, shelves, vanity tops, window sills, bath perimeters; pretty much any surface you can think of can be made to match.

    Whether it’s for a single suite bathroom or communal WC, they have the perfect product to transform any bathroom into a warm, welcoming space.

    We recently specified one of Cosentino’s basins for our client Hartford Homes, property developers based in the Isle of Man. Its homes are prestigious and completed only using luxury products. As with all Cosentino basins, each is custom made to order, to fit the customers space and design. The company’s specification for Westham Court was nothing less than opulent. With double vanity and walk in spa shower, as well as a freestanding bath which took centre stage in the room, this bathroom was something you would expect in a hotel suite. The specially designed double Reflection basin vanity, produced in Silestone Lyra quartz is seamlessly stunning.

    Silestone and Dekton offer a wide range of styles, allowing your customers to choose the colours and textures they love from the 100+ range, whilst enjoying the peace of mind of knowing that the materials fulfil all of their requirements for quality, durability, and hygiene; a minimal number of joints, anti-bacterial protection, and low porosity.
