Countertops Compared: Top 5 Materials to Top off A Bathroom Vanity

vanity is an essential piece of furniture that can make or break the design of your bathroom. With so many things to consider, such as design and storage, it's essential to get it just right.

The most challenging part of choosing a vanity is deciding which countertop material to use. As with any good design, the form must meet function. The countertop you choose will suit not just the look of the bathroom but the needs of its users as well. That includes you, your family, and maybe even your guests.

Different bathroom countertops – both natural and artificial – have unique properties, purposes, and origins. Knowing more about what's available will help you pick the right one. We've put together a little guide to some of our best-selling countertops to help make the big decision more manageable. 

  1. Magnificent Carrara Marble

Timeless and versatile, the Carrara Marble is a popular choice. Its natural look will offer a unique design for your bathroom, especially since every slab is different. However, marble is often porous and prone to staining. Ideally, it should be resealed every one to two years to help protect the beautiful, natural stone. 

Carrara Marble serves well as a countertop if adequately maintained. Of course, it must be sealed to protect the surface from stains, but its timeless look and freshness can add an elegant touch to any bathroom. Our Italian Carrara Marble Tops are sealed with water-resistant, low VOC (volatile organic compounds) sealers. That means it's as environmentally friendly and hassle-free as possible.

Of all the natural stone countertops available, marble tends to be less expensive. So even if you're on a budget, it's still possible to have an elegant and natural countertop for your bathroom vanity. 

  1. Quality Quartz 

Quartz countertops are engineered materials derived from natural stone combined with polymer resins. It's tough and impermeable, and the resins make the countertop malleable and impact resistant. 

The result is a beautiful, natural-looking countertop resistant to staining from water, oils, and most household cleaning products. Its durability makes it a popular choice for bathroom countertops, especially considering the range of design options available. 

Our Quartz countertops are also sustainable and eco-friendly. Like marble, it also has low VOC and can last a lifetime. In addition, many Quartz countertops are made from recycled materials and can be recycled again after even a lifetime of use. 

  1. Gorgeous Natural Granite

As a genuine natural stone, Granite is another excellent choice for countertops. It's solid, durable, stain-resistant, and is often slightly less expensive than Quartz or Marble. 

Granite countertops can also come in a variety of colors. Note that there will be variations between each countertop because it's a natural stone. But that also means your product will be one of a kind. 

Granite is an enduring material and doesn't fade or get discolored discolor over time. It can also handle many different cleaning products to ensure satisfactory maintenance.

When protecting its surface, Granite generally only needs to be sealed once, which is usually done by the fabricator. As a result, it's an excellent low-maintenance option for those with a heart set on a natural stone surface for their bathroom vanity countertop. 

  1. Fearless Phoenix Stone

This manufactured stone surface is everything you need in a countertop. Phoenix Stone is resistant to water, heat, mildew, cracking, stains, and heat. It's also non-porous and impermeable. As a manufactured stone, it has been designed to fit a purpose, and it indeed does. 

Because it's an engineered stone, color choices are much more comprehensive than natural stone countertops. Examples of Phoenix Stone will also be closer to the end product that you'll receive. 

Its simple design means it's a versatile choice. With a clean and fresh finish and made just for a bathroom vanity, Phoenix Stone is a low-maintenance product with a reasonable price tag. 

  1. Perfect Polymarble

Polymarble is another impressive engineered stone. The stunning gloss finish found on polymarble countertops is due to the sanitary-grade gelcoat polymer, which also prevents staining or scratching. 

Water, oils, and other products glide off effortlessly from the surface of the Polymarble. This makes it convenient and hygienic and durable, and impact resistant. 

The production process of Polymarble also allows for more incredible design options. The materials used to make it give strength and rigidity, but the molding process means that intricate detail is also possible. 

The product's clean, white, and shining finish lends elegance to any bathroom and is a perfect fit as a countertop for almost any vanity.
