Selecting the Best Bathroom Countertop Material

Deciding on the best bathroom countertop material to suit your needs does not have to be difficult. From budget-friendly materials like laminate, poly marble, and porcelain to the more expensive choices like quartz countertops, there is a wide selection. Learn about the different materials you can use for your bathroom countertop and find out which one is best for you.

Granite Bathroom Countertops

There are endless options, from subdued and subtle to powerful and bold, the different patterns and colours really provide an incredibly robust selection. Granite is durable because it is naturally a hard material that also happens to be resistant to scratching. When sealed properly, you’ll find it also requires next to no maintenance and will last for decades. It is also a material that is unaffected by humidity from showers or heat from curling irons or blowdryers. Believe it or not, since granite is such a desirable material when it comes to countertops, there is a chance it could boost the resale value of your home too!

Quartz Bathroom Countertops

It’s not often you find something tougher than granite, but that’s quartz for you. And unlike granite, this material doesn’t require sealing. Quartz is also a very durable material that is resistant to bacteria, stains, and moisture. Although the options aren’t quite as vast as granite, quartz countertops come in a number of different edge treatments, along with a collection of installation options to choose from.

Marble Bathroom Countertops

Marble is an extremely long-lasting material and is hard enough to be adverse to most dents and chips. Because marble can be polished to really make it shine, or created with a matte finish, the options you have for selecting the right countertop for you are significant.

Wood Bathroom Countertops

Wood is a material that is very popular for DIY bathroom renovators because it is so customizable. It can be cut to any shape or size – so you can really get creative with your space. You can also opt for rustic or modern finishings, and even explore sustainable wood options. Because there are so many different types of wood, and it is easy to cut and customize, flexible pricing means you can really find an option for all budgets.

Laminate Bathroom Countertops

Laminate is considered one of, if not the, most affordable materials when it comes to bathroom countertop options. Laminate is also a material that is very easy to clean and maintain; it’s water resistant; and as a bonus, is relatively easy to install.

Polymarble Bathroom Countertops

Polymarble is a rather new material but is very quickly gaining in popularity for its looks, function, and price point. It’s a manmade material that looks and feels like a natural stone. Polymarble costs about the same as laminate but carries a lot more esthetical look and feel.

Porcelain Bathroom Countertops

Just like polymarble and laminate, porcelain is one of the entry-level materials for bathroom countertops. It is durable and very easy to maintain, stain resistant and provides a beautiful white glossy finish to it. A lot of customers are opting for a porcelain bathroom countertop.

Concrete Bathroom Countertops

Concrete is appealing as it looks similar to other natural stones and is extremely long-lasting and durable. Concrete can be created using a number of different colours and textures. It can also be moulded to an exact shape and size. It is not very common in the Ottawa bathroom renovation market and each countertop would have to be custom-made, which means they will be costly compared to made-to-size countertops, but can be a great product for some one-off custom projects

Tile Bathroom Countertops

Tile used to be an exceedingly affordable bathroom countertop option. And if damaged, you can remove and replace individual tiles. In addition, a glazed ceramic tile is resistant to moisture, heat, stains, and scratches. These days, in most bathroom renovations you won’t see newly build Tile counters, the cost of tiling labour has gone up and the look overall resembles the 1980s.
