Top 5 best countertops for bathrooms

Michigan bathroom countertops

While kitchens get most of the coverage when it comes to countertops, we shouldn’t forget about the bathrooms, also. Bathroom countertops do get old, outdated, or simply worn out, so we will help you with the top 5 best countertops for your bathroom.

1. Quartz Bathroom Countertops

When it comes to bathrooms, we recommend using quartz countertops. Quartz is a material that is man-made, with over 90% organic quartz composition. The rest of the slab is made up of pigments and binders. The first thing you’ll notice about quartz is that it looks a lot like granite. 

Why use quartz? With quartz you get that granite look, but without the hassle of maintaining it like you would granite countertops.

Why not use quartz? Quartz countertops can get a little bit more expensive, and finding quartz remnant pieces is generally harder than granite remnants. Of course, not always the case. If you visit our remnant yard, you’ll find a lot of quartz pieces, and we’re sure you’ll find one you will fall in love with.

2. Granite Bathroom Countertops

Granite countertops for your bathrooms are natural stone, just like the granite countertops in your kitchens. Regular maintenance is required, and possibly more often than those in the kitchen. Because of a lot of water usage in the bathrooms, we recommend resealing bathroom countertops more often than those in kitchens, depending on the usage.

Why granite countertops? Because granite is natural, straight from mother nature, it cannot be imitated by any man made stone, ever. Your bathroom countertops will look unique.

Why not granite countertops? Granite countertops in bathrooms, as we mentioned above, generally need more maintenance.

3. Solid Surface bathroom countertops

Solid surfaces have been a popular choice for bathroom countertops for a very long time. The material they offer combines flexibility and functionality. The solid surfaces are man made, and the most popular brands are Corian and Silestone.

Why use solid surface countertops? They’re popular and don’t usually need a lot of maintaining.

Why not use solid surface countertops? They’re prone to scratches, and you should be careful with placing hot stuff on them, such as curling irons.

4. Laminate bathroom countertops

Even though granite and quartz fabricators will usually tell you to stay away from laminate countertops, they’d work for bathrooms with not a lot of traffic, guest bathrooms, basements, or other areas that aren’t used very often. Laminate countertops are most commonly known as Formica, which is a brand of laminate countertops.

Why use laminate countertops? They’re easy to install, and you might even be able to get away with installing them yourself.

Why not use laminate countertops? Even though some of the premium laminates can look good, it’s not considered appropriate for higher-end houses.

5. Ceramic Tiles

The number one reason, and probably the only reason of installing ceramic tiles in your bathrooms is cost. Ceramic tiles is usually used by people that are trying to save as much as they can, and want to take on do-it-yourself projects. 

Why use ceramic tiles? You can do them yourself, and will save you money.

Why not use ceramic tiles? Resale value is not that great.
