Tips for Choosing Bathroom Countertops
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, and 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.
