I want to put a peice of glass across the top set of bathroom cabinets

THIS ONE

Sink is right at one end so just a single piece required

What thickness should I use, and what type of glass (strength/safety wise) ?

TIA

    As a worktop?

    You'll need at least 10mm, toughened. Lots of people specialise in glass worktops. Speak to thm directly!

    Oh. Okay.

    It won't be easier to clean. Toothpasty, soapy water will get under the glass very easily and you'll end up cleaning the worktop anyway.

    Toughened glass isn't cheap, particularly. Not in comparison to the unit. You're better off just changing the worktop when it needs changing.
