Choosing a Bathroom Countertop

Choosing amongst the various types of vanity top will depend on a number of factors. Appearance and ease of maintenance are two of the main things to consider. Here are three of the best materials you can find:

Granite and Marble
In a master bath, it pays to install granite or marble, which attract buyers at resale and give the vanity top a rich, sleek look. And with affordable “grades” of granite available on the market today, you don’t have to empty your wallet for this feature. You will, of course, spend more on granite than laminate, but the result is a surface that can handle heat and wear. Be advised: granite must be sealed to repel grease (which you could run into in hair products and such). Marble stains easily, while granite stands up to most stains. Source: HGTV

Ceramic is another common material used in the construction of vanity tops. This material offers almost unlimited color choices and is easily cleaned and maintained. Ceramic is typically manufactured in both glazed and unglazed finishes. It is also possible to mix different colors and textures for a customized look. A grout sealer should be used for ceramic countertop applications to prevent the growth of mildew. Source: WiseGeek

Manufactured Quartz
Manufactured quartz is one of the most popular options for countertops of all types, including bathroom vanities. It looks similar to a natural stone, like limestone, granite, or marble, but it is more durable and better equipped to resist stains and scratching. Quartz is actually a synthetic composite, comprised of about ninety percent quartz particles. It can be ordered in a range of colors and customizable thickness options, and it is a great choice if you want a unique or customized vanity edge. Source: Ebay
