HiB – Product Showcase

New Mineral Marble and Ceramic Basins now available from HiB 

HiB Ltd recognises the need to adhere to the latest bathroom trends, with popular solutions like mineral marble and ceramic basin  

In the construction industry, housebuilders are constantly seeking innovative solutions to meet the practical and aesthetic needs of modern homeowners. One of the key considerations is the choice of bathroom products, ensuring they meet the preferred aesthetics of the homeowner and have the durability to last everyday use. According to the British Bathroom Manufacturers Association (BMA), 67% of people select bathroom products based on their functionality and suitability for the space (BMA, May 2022). This highlights the importance of durability and utility when choosing the right products, especially the basin, an essential element of any bathroom. 

For years, ceramic has reigned supreme in the UK bathroom basins market, but a recent game-changer has emerged in the form of mineral marble. At HiB, we have witnessed the evolution of mineral marble and we are excited to share how it has become a fantastic choice for housebuilders. 

Mineral marble, also known as mineral composite, is made from dolomite stone and resin. It has come a long way since its introduction, transforming from a mere imitation of natural stone into a material with unique properties and aesthetics. One of its most remarkable advantages is the extensive range of design possibilities it offers. Mineral marble can be moulded into nearly any shape or size, making it ideal for creating modern and sleek basin designs that cater to various interior styles. The new Terra range, recently launched by HiB, offers a textured look, in four finishes, with both the basin and countertop beautifully complementing each other. 

Additionally, it is exceptionally durable, resistant to chipping and scratching. Its robustness ensures that it stands the test of time, minimising the need for replacements. In the rare event of damage, mineral marble can be repaired, a feature not shared by ceramic basins. 

While mineral marble has revolutionised the market, there is still a sense of confidence and familiarity in ceramic basins which are tried and tested, offering durability and scratch resistance. Many homeowners prefer the reassurance of a ceramic basin for their homes, emphasising the practical needs of consumers. 

HiB understands the importance of offering choice to customers and educating them about the benefits and practicality of both solutions. As such, HiB continues to invest in ceramic as a material for its basin ranges, ensuring a strong selection of ceramic vessel and washbasins. The new Opia range, for example, offers three deep, stylish bowl options that, when paired with complementing countertops and brassware, create a sophisticated look. 

Sophie Watts, HiB Contracts Coordinator, said “We are thrilled to offer new products such as the Terra basin and countertop which offer housebuilders a different solution for that modern look that consumers want. But we also understand the importance of offering choice to customers. As such, we continue to invest in ceramic as a material for its basin ranges, ensuring that we have strong selection of ceramic vessel and washbasins to suit everyone’s needs.  

 “Adding these products into our offering means that at HiB, we are able to offer a complete solution, making the sourcing and ordering process quicker and easier for those taking on building projects.”
