Whether you aim to add a modern bathroom to your new house or plan to rejuvenate your existing one, we recommend investing in a high-quality countertop. A countertop may seem like a simple part of a renovation, but it can amplify the functionality and appeal of your bathroom without the use of extraneous materials. So if you are contemplating your next bathroom renovation project, consider these top materials for modern bathroom countertops.
Laminate is one of the classic and practical material choices when it comes to bathroom countertops. Since it is manufactured using a thin plastic material surface and a strong base, this material is long-lasting and durable. It provides durable and contemporary furnishing solutions that are excellent for modern bathrooms exposed to heavy use. This material is available in elegant patterns, muted colour variations, and it is also hygienic and water-resistant. You can opt for gloss or matt versions to match the style you prefer. Moreover, laminates are very versatile because they can also be used with other materials such as natural stones and wood.
If you prefer to have a variety of choices for your countertop, you can never go wrong with tiles. With the diverse options of tiles available for bathroom renovations, you can conveniently find the one that can match your specific requirements and preferences. The tile varieties we recommend for bathroom countertops are ceramic and porcelain tiles. These tile materials are usually resistant to stain, scratch and moisture. Moreover, ceramic and porcelain tiles are available in a myriad of sizes, shapes, and colours, so you can customize the look of your countertop using unique patterns. However, if you will use tiles for your countertop make sure that you have them properly sealed to prevent mould and mildew growth on the tile grout.
Another popular material choice for contemporary bathroom countertops is granite. This type of natural stone is a favourite by many homeowners because of its unique aesthetic appeal and durability. Granite is available in an array of beautiful patterns, hues and styles, so it can suit a lot of bathroom designs and styles. Besides that, it is extremely durable compared to other natural stones and wood. That is why it is also an excellent option for kitchen renovations. Since it is impervious to heat and humidity, a hot curling iron or hair blower can’t easily damage its surface. Although granite countertops can have an expensive upfront cost compared to other materials, they will still be profitable in the long run. Granite countertops can last for decades even with minimal maintenance, and they can also be a good investment to increase the resale value of your home.
