Is it time to spruce up your bathroom in 2019? One of the great design choices when renovating any bathroom is the countertop for your vanity. With so many materials, shades, and styles to choose from, you can really get creative in this area.
Looking for some inspiration? Let’s look at the hottest bathroom countertop trends for 2019.
Popular countertop materials
First of all, what materials are people opting for in 2019 for their stone bathroom countertops:
- Granite and marble countertops – Granite and marble are perennial favorites for bathroom and kitchen countertops, so there’s no surprise here, but they continue to be on trend in 2019.
- Onyx countertop – Onyx is a rare and beautiful material for bathroom countertops or backsplashes. It is rarely seen in kitchen countertops because it is more fragile than other natural stones, but it is a good choice for bathrooms if you maintain it properly.
- Travertine countertop – Travertine tiles and slabs are both ideal for bathroom countertops. Each slab is unique and available in a variety of hues and patterns. You can also have it cut to avoid the veining if you prefer a purer look.
- Limestone countertop – Limestone and travertine have similar properties. Both stones should be sealed and resealed occasionally due to their porous properties. A range of design choices are available to create the look you want in your bathroom.
Other bathroom countertop trends
If you want a striking element to your bathroom, then the vanity countertop is the perfect place to look. Many people are favoring high-contrast colors in their countertops over the neutral tones we’re more used to. Black and white or gray and white countertops, for example, can produce a dramatic effect when nestled in among a more plain and neutral design. Striking, all-black bathrooms have even been noted as a rising trend.
Vintage bathrooms are also in with some people. Classic washroom vanities and accessories are creating a great vintage style, including the idea of using an old dresser for your vanity with a countertop attached for practicality. Then there are floating vanities, which don’t start from the floor but instead are attached to the wall with empty space underneath. This helps to create a seamless look and create the illusion of more space in your bathroom.
