Tips for Choosing Bathroom Countertops

Sep 13th, 2016 | bathroom, Bathroom Design

There are three key factors to consider when choosing the surface for bathroom countertops. Style, function, and durability, in no particular order, vary depending on the material and the surface finish. Rock Solid Custom Granite features a staggering array of bathroom countertop surfaces. We are offering our customers a plethora of choices including granite, soapstone, limestone, travertine, marble, onyx and quartz.

Most of our customers use those three key factors and then consider the fourth factor: cost. We realize that images can do only so much and that the best way to properly pick a bathroom countertop is to look and feel the material in person. It is easier to decide once you see the finished product and get a better feel for it. Here are some suggestions we created for our customers to help them make just the right decision for their home.

Safest Choices for Bathroom Countertops

The bathroom is the place where most of us start the day. This could include washing your face, brushing teeth, putting makeup on, or simply tidying up before taking on your day. Ideally, we all want a perfect start to our day, a

nd that’s why countertop material choice matters. Granite and quartz are the “safe picks” when it comes to considering the three factors of style, function, and durability.

Granite offers a few advantages:

  • It is the hardest natural stone used for counter tops
  • Offers a great selection of colors
  • High scratch, heat and stain resistance
  • Quartz is one of the hardest minerals in the world and features an abundance of types and brands to choose from:
  • A wide range of vibrant tones and natural stone styles
    Does not require polishing or sealing
  • Has anti-microbial properties ideal for family use
    A Lower-Cost Alternative

Travertine, compared to granite, is less expensive:

Luxurious material that offers a high-end look
Offers a number of finishing options
More porous compared to other rocks
Requires maintenance and constant care, stains and scratches easily
