Bathroom countertops are just as important as the ones in your kitchen. However, they are often ignored in the process of renovation and interior designing.
The requirements for bathroom countertops are different than the ones for kitchen. For instance, you need to worry about colored stains showing up on the countertop. In contrast, even shampoo bottles and soap holders can leave their mark on a bathroom countertop.
Then, moisture is another problem as it can lead to growth of mold. So, you should choose an option which doesn’t hold any moisture and allows it to evaporate away.
But, there is no one countertop that is the right choice for all bathrooms. It really depends on your lifestyle. If looking for a countertop style for your bathroom, here’s what you should be able to answer first:
- What type of bathroom are you planning?Will it be a low-use powder room, an over-the-top master one, or a simple everyday use space? The first one doesn’t make as much a mess, so a simple countertop will work.
Daily use bathrooms have numerous substances that can affect the countertop, including toothpaste, hairspray, makeup, and cleaning supplies. If you have children, the countertops would have to be defended against those sticky medicinal syrups too.
In contrast, a master bathroom would need a top quality and elegant looking countertop.
- How many people are using it on a daily basis?More people means more mess. This means you will have to clean it multiple times a day to keep the dirt and stains away.
If you have young children, there will be a lot less help around. In fact, they often contribute to the mess the most. Choose an easily maintained marble countertop if the bathroom is used by children up to teenage years.
- Do you want a custom-made style? If the bathroom space is unusually shaped or larger than normal, you might want to go for custom-made countertops. On the other hand, you might have a small vanity and only want a small vanity top for the space.
- Do you plan to stay for long? If this is the home you wanted for a long time, then you should invest in quality and style. However, if you plan to move out, then you should invest accordingly. Still, we recommend going for long-lasting countertop materials, as they add value to your house.
