Choosing the Right Bathroom Countertops

Whether you’re replacing your bathroom countertops or going for a full room remodel, finding the right aesthetic and degree of functionality is important. As you go through the process, keep in mind that bathroom countertops, due to their location, are exposed to more moisture than other countertops. This should be a big player as to which material you choose.

The bathroom is where you and your family spend a significant amount of time. Whether you’re getting ready for the day or winding down at night, your bathroom should be a place where you enjoy relaxing.

Bellezza Artisan Stone Surfaces wants to help choose the perfect bathroom countertops for your unique bathroom. Keep reading to find out how to settle on something that you love.

Countertop Types

Here are the types of countertops for your bathroom:

Regular Countertops

Regular countertops are the most basic style to install. They are slabs of chosen material that are laid on top of a cabinet, which provides space for your toiletries and a convenient place to go through your morning and night routines. Since they’re simple and elegant, many homeowners gravitate toward this style.

Bathroom Sink Countertops

Bathroom sink countertops, as the name would suggest, have sinks embedded. Either an undermount sink or a drop-in sink will adorn this type of countertop, and they offer a high degree of convenience while you’re getting ready in the morning with the sink right where you need it.

Vanity Countertops

A vanity countertop is known for saving space in the bathroom, as it combines a sink and cabinet into a single unit. There are many ways that you can customize your vanity countertop, either with a single-bowl option with one sink, or a double-bowl option with two sinks. If you already have a sink you’d like to use, you can choose a vanity countertop without a sink option.

Material Types

We’re proud of the variety that we stock in our showroom. For your consideration, we have granite, marble, quartzite, quartz, and porcelain, along with our fair share of exotic stones. For bathrooms, we’re partial to granite and quartz—here’s why:

Quartz Countertops

Quartz countertops are known for being extremely durable. They’re an inherently nonporous material, meaning that the extra moisture in the bathroom won’t do anything to harm them. They’re stain resistant and scratch resistant, and they don’t involve much maintenance at all. In fact, they don’t even require a sealing routine.

Granite Countertops

Granite is one of the toughest natural stones that you can find. It’s incredibly heat resistant, so you don’t have to worry about your hot styling tools doing any damage. It’s scratch resistant too! Granite, since it’s a porous natural stone, does require a sealing routine in order to keep it strong against stains and damage done by liquids.

What to Consider

As you search for the perfect bathroom countertop, here are a few other things to keep in mind:

  • The size of your bathroom and its dimensions: Your bathroom’s height, width, and depth—affect the way your countertops look. Take accurate measurements to make sure that your bathroom has the right dimensions to accommodate the countertop you’re attracted to.
  • The plumbing: If your plumbing system is old and outdated, you should consider updating it before installing a new bathroom countertop. An old plumbing system can slow down and complicate the process of installation, so make sure that everything is functioning properly before focusing on the countertop.
  • The style: Consider the general style of the bathroom you’re looking to create. If you want something in a rustic style, we recommend countertops in warm tones. If you want your bathroom to feel like a spa, choose luxurious, clean colors. By sticking with a design throughout your countertop replacement process, your vision will come to life more accurately.
