The vanity top is usually among the first things people see when they step into your bathroom. Choosing the right design for it can go a long way in giving your bathroom the boost in both aesthetic appeal and functionality, so it helps to explore all your options thoughtfully before you make a decision. To help you out, our experts at The Bathroom Store share more insight here.
Design vs. Function
Despite sharing similar material options, bathroom vanity tops don’t experience the same wear and tear kitchen countertops are used to every day. Since they’re not normally exposed to rolling pins, hot pots or knives, you can choose from a wider range of options that fit your custom interior design. You also won’t have to worry about its function when browsing different materials. This is because most vanity tops are already designed and built with different features to ensure better convenience while in use.
Choosing the Right Material
With nearly countless material options for your vanity top, you’re only limited by size and how much you’re willing to spend. You can also discuss with your bathroom contractor what your options are to make the most out of your investment. We’ve put together a few popular vanity options to consider:
- Granite – This material is often at the top of the list when it comes to bathroom vanity tops. Known for its natural beauty and elegance, its surface can easily showcase a wide range of textures and colors. And while it’s incredibly durable, it comes with a high price point and must be installed by a trained professional.
- Solid surface – This is an affordable material that’s also popular in many bathroom designs. It’s typically made from acrylic, but you can choose from several options that mimic the appearance of wood, stone, quartz or even granite.
- Engineered quartz – It is composed of a mixture of quartz particles and polymer resins. Despite not being natural stone, it’s still highly resistant to stains and scratches. It’s even more durable than granite but at a fraction of the cost.
