How to Choose the Best Bathroom Countertops
Different materials have advantages and drawbacks for countertops used specifically in bathrooms, and it’s important to understand your options. Here’s factors to look out for when choosing your bathroom counter material.
Bathroom designs are constantly evolving, but stone countertops are becoming more popular in bathrooms, as opposed to laminates or tile, which can be hard to maintain. Granite offers a wide variety of color choices, and the smaller size of most bathroom counters makes it less expensive. Engineered stone countertop materials like quartz also provide beautiful color choices with subtle sparkle or veins in any color.
In kitchens, super hard countertops can be a problem if you drop dishes, which is less of a problem in bathrooms. However, with makeup use and abrasive cleaners, it’s important to choose a countertop material that is stain resistant and hard enough to stand up to regular scrubbing. Natural stone like granite can be a good choice for bathroom counters for this reason.
Obviously anything installed in a bathroom will be subject to more moisture than in kitchens, with the steam from showers and water running over the material. This is why it’s important that you choose a non-porous countertop material like quartz or other engineered stone. Some countertop materials are also created to be bacteria resistant as well.
Some kinds of engineered stone countertop materials will fade over time if exposed to UV rays, even breaking down and becoming more prone to breakage or scratching. So if your bathroom has large windows (or if you’re considering counters for an outdoor kitchen,) consider this factor when choosing your bathroom countertops.
