Materials

Granite

Imported from all over the world, Granite is durable and naturally beautiful. Granite can be fabricated into a nearly unlimited number of shapes and sizes. It is excellent for Vanity tops, kitchen tops, window sills, breakfast bars and more. Just let your imagination go. Pricing is probably less than you think. Granite is very competitive with other materials. Price is very much color driven, Chinese standard colors being the least expensive.

Natural Marble

Imported from all over the world, natural marble is truly natures color pallet. It is available in colors from very basic white to bold patterns in brilliant reds yellows and even blues. Natural marble is generally less dense than granite so it is easier to cut but unfortunately that also means that it is more susceptible to staining if not properly sealed and certain colors can be very fragile.

Engineered Quartz

A man made product using natural ground quartz and bonding the particles with an advanced resin material. It has an extremely dense surface giving it a high stain and abrasion resistance. It is a great material for vanity tops, kitchens, window sills and public areas but it is one of the more expensive materials available.

Solidstone™

A engineered granite product made to simulate the look of natural granite. Being man made, it is typically more consistent in color than your natural stones and has a protective Lustercoat finish that is very dense and does not require sealing. Solidstone is an excellent material for tub surrounds due to its dense surface which is very easy to maintain. Solidstone is also available for Vanity tops and window sills. Solidstone is a cast product that is not suitable for post production tooling such as routing.

Solid Surface

A man made product similar to engineered marble but it is typically an acrylic resin base with synthetic fillers and is mixed in a vacuum to remove any air from the mixture. This allows the finished product to be tooled and refabricated. There is no protective surface coat but the material is very dense and not susceptible to staining. Hotel Vanities International offers a wide choice of solid surface products such as Corian®, Gibralter®, Formica Solid Surface® and more.

Laminates

Laminates such as Formica and Wilsonart are made by layering sheets of specially treated paper and a plastic surface layer. These layers are then compressed together under extremely high pressure. This material is sold in sheets and then laminated onto a partical board backing. Laminates are widely used in kitchens because of their lower costs.
