Replacing bathroom countertops is a big undertaking. If this is a project you’ve been considering, then you know how important each decision is.
Bathroom countertops tie the entire room together, and they act as the centerpiece for one of the most frequented spaces in your home.
Choosing a Material
If you’re not sure what type of material you want your vanity countertop to be made of, we put together a list of qualities to keep in mind.
Plenty of activity happens on a bathroom countertop, which means they should be able to take the heat—sometimes literally. They should not only be easy to clean but sanitary so you don’t have to worry about germs polluting your super-clean space.
There are a few factors that play into the cost of countertops—don’t forget to take labor, transportation costs, and price of the material into account.
Talk to us at Capitol Granite to make sure that your desired material will be ready to go at the time of installation. Even the smallest delays can cause major headaches, so it’s helpful to be on the same page when it comes to this step.
When you’re working with ultra-heavy countertop materials, professional installation is always the way to go. If you try and install it yourself, you might end up paying more for repairs (or a replacement) than you would have paid to have it done by the pros. Even wood can be too bulky to install on your own, but this is something you can easily talk over with our team to figure out which option is right for you and your material.
Remember that locally sourced material always has a lesser impact on the environment than materials that have to be transported across the nation. If sustainability matters to you, talk to us about how you can install the most eco-friendly countertop.
Your Countertop Material Choices
Here in our showroom, we’ve got plenty of bathroom countertops to choose from, and we think all of these materials are great. Take a look:
Granite is a great choice for your bathroom sink countertops because it’s highly durable and always in style. It has gorgeous patterns and dramatic veins, but it’s not just beautiful—it’s functional too. It’s highly heat resistant, so it takes no issue with hot styling products, and it’s scratch resistant too. It’s a natural stone that can be locally sourced, so it’s also friendly to the environment.
This is a countertop that should only be installed by professionals because it’s very heavy. As for maintenance, it doesn’t require much else besides a regular sealing routine.
Quartz is an engineered stone that, unlike granite, does not require sealant. It’s inherently stain resistant, thanks to its lack of pores, and it’s very hygienic too. It’s not quite as heat resistant as granite, but it can still hold its own against hot items. It’s almost impossible to scratch the surface of a quartz countertop.
Marble is radiant and stunning, and it has a special way of using natural light to bring even the smallest bathroom to life. This natural stone is resistant to heat and will give your vanity countertop a look you’ve been dying for. Marble must be sealed regularly, as it’s one of the more porous natural stone selections, and it should never come into contact with acids.
Butcher block countertops can be custom fit into any bathroom and are made with many different types of wood. This countertop style can be cut into any size or shape and has the potential to look rustic or modern. For those with young families, though, this material may not be your best bet, because it can be sensitive to water.
