Stone, Granite & Marble Vanity Tops For Bathrooms
No other material combines durability, imperviousness to water and staining with sheer nobility of appearance, like sealed stone. Somehow, stone conveys its antiquity in subtle displays of colour and grain that give enduring satisfaction to the discerning home owners who choose it. And there can be few more challenging spaces in the home than the bathroom. With its abundance of water and steam, to say nothing of soaps, shampoos, toothpaste, hair dye and other substances likely to cause damage to floors and vanity tops, it’s the perfect place for marble, granite or reconstituted stone.
Reconstituted Stone Vanity Tops
Reconstituted stone is a wonderful material for the bathroom. An agglomerate of quartz and other crushed stone elements with a cement or resin binding agent, it has very similar properties to those of sealed, polished natural stone. It is less porous than many natural stones, and more flexible and therefore less liable to fracture. G.C. Smith carry a large variety of reconstituted stone, and can provide you with expert advice on the proper use of adhesives and other aspects of using this beautiful, convenient material.

Granite Vanity Tops
For some people, nothing but the authenticity of genuine granite will do. Nothing has quite the sense of permanence conveyed by a granite vanity top, and nobody understands granite quite like GC Smith.
Marble Vanity Tops
With its exquisitely variegated grain, marble conveys a sense of sheer luxury. A marble vanity top from GC Smith is an adornment that makes every visit to the bathroom a pleasure.
Sealed Stone Vanity Tops
While stone has excellent properties, it is not, in its natural state, entirely impervious to liquids, or to damage from acid or salt. It has a natural porosity, and although granite and marble are among the least porous stones, exposure to water and steam will, over time, impair the finish of a granite or marble vanity top. Through the ages, stone workers have used everything from olive oil to egg white to preserve the beauty of their stone. These days, a variety of techniques is available for sealing stone vanity tops.
