Differences Between Bathroom & Kitchen Countertops

When choosing a bathroom countertop, it’s important to know the amount of durability you need. Typically, bathroom countertops don’t need to be as durable as kitchen countertops, simply because there is less activity on them.

While durability is an important factor to consider when choosing a bathroom countertop, it’s also important to keep price, required maintenance, and appearance in mind. Since there is less focus on durability in bathroom countertops, appearance can take center stage. A nice appearance can still be practical, and this makes choosing bathroom countertops slightly easier.

Bathroom Countertop Ideas

Bathroom countertops come in a wide variety of materials (much like kitchen countertops): natural stone (granite, marble), quartz, concrete, tile, solid surface, laminate, and specialty finishes (like stainless steel).

Granite continues to be a popular choice among bathroom remodelers and is considered to be the “Rolls-Royce of countertops.” Granite countertops are long lasting, durable, and stain resistant, however, there is some upkeep involved with sealing to be completed every 6 – 12 months. Quartz countertops provide the look of granite and marble countertops, but require less upkeep and are very easy to clean. Tile countertops are also popular, but can prove to be difficult to clean due to the grout used to install them.

It may seem like there are a lot of decisions to make, however, there’s no need to fret! Our dedicated team of kitchen and bathroom designers are here to help you navigate through the process from start to finish.
