Timber Laminates in Bathroom Renovation
At Armrock Constructions, we specialise in bathroom renovations on the Gold Coast QLD.

Bespoke vanity style is often achieved nowadays by utilising timber-look laminates for either the vanity benchtop, cabinet, or the entire vanity unit. The results are so effective that we wanted to showcase some of their uses and share information about their applications to demonstrate how they can be used to enhance your bathroom renovation project.

What are Timber-Look Laminates?
Timber-look laminates are basically materials that are designed to look like natural timber. They’re called laminates because they are created through the process of lamination, which just means that they are constructed with multiple layers that are compressed together. If you’re really interested, you can learn more about the process on Wikipedia. The important thing to know about laminates is that they are hard-wearing, great-looking and perfectly suited to making beautiful bathroom vanities!

The Advantages of Laminates in Bathrooms
The advantages of using a laminated product are best understood in comparison to using other materials for the same purpose. Actual timber is expensive and may be limited in the type and options that are available. Timber-look laminates, meanwhile, are available in a wide range of purpose-designed styles. They’re made for bathrooms! Their advantages include:
- Wide range of styles
- Corners can be rounded
- Textural (some laminates have texture, just like the real thing)
- Water Resistant
Timber laminates can be used to achieve virtually any look you can imagine. No wonder we love working with them so much! In this project illustrated below, you can see how the vanity cabinet and benchtop have been finished with stylish curves, creating continuity with the round mirror and curved bathtub. With a skilful team and a quality product, it’s amazing what can be achieved.
Timber-Look Laminates in Vanity Units
Timber-look laminates are commonly used in our projects to enhance custom vanity units. They can be used for the benchtop, cabinet, or both. The approach depends on the goal of the vanity unit and its intention in the bathroom. The presence of timber elevates the bathroom and helps to connect it with the outside world. Tonally, lighter or darker shades of timber can be used to create contrast in the bathroom, or with the vanity unit itself. Between our carpenters and the design goals, you can capitalise on possibilities such as rounded corners to give your vanity a winning and individual look. In the following image, you can see how the rich, warm timber-tones anchor and connect the greater bathroom elements for a juxtaposed, modern style.
The best thing about laminates is the way they have evolved. Laminates have been around for a long time, and they have come a long way. Whether you’re doing a budget renovation or a high-end renovation, laminates are an option to consider. The wide range of styles and excellent engineering available, in conjunction with their competitive price-point, make laminates an essential consideration in any bathroom renovation.
Timber-Look Laminate in Bathroom Flooring
Timber-look laminates are also often used as a solution for bathroom flooring. The attributes that make them a winning solution for vanities also apply to flooring. Due to their larger visual footprint in this role, they have the ability to have a truly transformational outcome on the bathroom design.
This warm, inviting bathroom renovation demonstrates why Armrock Constructions is a leading bathroom renovation company on the Gold Coast.
