Once you choose a style and color scheme for your bathroom remodel, you’ll start selecting elements. One of the major elements is the countertop. Your budget, family and look you’re going for are the major influencers when it comes to the right countertop. Here are some things to think about.
Starting with a material that fits within your bathroom remodeling budget is a good place to start. Generally, you’ll find just about any material comes in different price ranges. For example, choosing an imported piece of granite costs as much as real marble. On the other end of the spectrum, some budget granites can cost just slightly more than a designer cultured marble.
What sort of maintenance do you want to perform regularly? Who will be using the bathroom? Natural stone requires special cleaning products. Ideally you should only use a non-abrasive bleach free cleaner on marble which stains easily, especially from hair dyes and makeup. Although quartz doesn’t requite sealing and can be cleaned with a variety of products, keep in mind it can be damaged by heat.
Perhaps the biggest decision you’ll need to make is how you want the bathroom to look. In fact, that’s probably why you’re undergoing a bathroom remodel. If you’re going for ultra-modern, consider stainless steel or quartz. If your tile is neutral, look for a bold slab of granite with lots of veining. Your bathroom remodeling company will help you bring your room together with the right colors in your countertop.
Although few homeowners remodel their bathroom just to sell the home, resale value is something to consider. If you know you will be selling in the next few years, you may want to keep the countertop neutral. As for material choices, marble and quartz are more favorable than a solid surface countertop or even granite.
