Are you looking for new countertops for your bathroom? Whether it’s just the bathroom vanity or you’ve got other countertops in there, it can be difficult to know what choices to make and which materials to choose. To help you get the right countertops for your bathroom, read on for our bathroom countertops buying guide.

Compare materials

One of the biggest choices you need to make is which material you’ll use for your bathroom countertops. There are lots of different natural stones that will go great in your bathroom. Generally, it is better to choose the less porous materials so that they don’t stain as a result of all the water in the bathroom. You can also seal your countertops to make them less porous.

In another bathroom countertop blog, we compared the following natural stones to help you decide on the best one for your bathroom countertops:

  • Marble
  • Limestone
  • Slate
  • Sandstone
  • Granite
  • Soapstone

These are all popular materials for bathroom vanities. Laminate is also another good option if you’re not looking for stone countertops. Think about the style of your room, what the countertops will be used for, and your budget to decide which material is right for you.

Compare prices

Once you’ve chosen a material for your bathroom countertops, you’ll need to decide where to buy them from. Do some research online to find out how much different providers charge for the stone and for installation. You should also compare the reputation and reviews of different providers to ensure you’re getting a quality service.

Visiting showrooms is another good idea for both seeing the stone in real life and asking any questions you have about the countertops or the company you’re considering. Some types of stone will be more expensive than others, so you’ll need to determine which material best suits your budget.

Decide on an edge

Now you’ve decided on the stone and the installers, there’s one last important detail to decide on – the edge. Different edge profiles can really change the style of the countertop and the room it’s placed in. Some popular ones include square, beveled, eased, and waterfall. Some suit modern styles better while others are more traditional. You can read our other blog about how to choose an edge for your countertops.
