Some great tips here, thanks. The big one that’s missing is timber - any chance of adding it? Thanks.

I agree with P W. Timber is a very attractive and easy-to maintain surface. In my bathroom I have a stained and oiled unit in Jarrah strips (glued to a timber top and encased in Rimu). It looks great and is easy to keep clean. Occasional furniture polish is all it needs.

Porcelain is another material that is beautiful and not mentioned in this article.
