Vanity Tops and Side Splashes

An easy way to inject a dose of color, texture and pattern into your bathroom space is to choose a colorful vanity top that complements or contrasts with your vanity, walls and flooring. Naturally, vanity tops should be both practical and beautiful — a combination that can be challenging to find. Rest assured, you will find a vanity top that fits your needs and style preferences. But before you make your final decision, consider all of your options.

What should I look for in bathroom countertops?

Durability, stain resistance, water resistance and cost are typically the main factors you’ll want to note. After you’ve narrowed down your choices to a few bathroom vanity tops that meet your needs, it’s time to consider colors and patterns, which should complement the overall design aesthetic in your bathroom.

What materials do bathroom vanity tops come in?

While your bathroom vanity top generally won’t take as much abuse as your kitchen counter, you should still consider durability and other factors when making your selection. Of course, this opens up your range of options, which include some of the following popular choices:

• Granite: This is the most durable and easiest to care for of any of your natural stone options. Granite vanity tops are elegant, unique and impervious to water. They tend to be more expensive, so be sure to compare prices from different vendors to make sure you get the best deal. It’s also worth noting that granite tiles are more affordable than a slab.
• Manufactured quartz: Quartz is available in a wide variety of colors and thicknesses. This synthetic composite can look similar to limestone, granite or even marble, but will cost you much less and will be more impervious to scratches and stains.
• Tile: This classic look allows you to create colorful designs. It can be matched with a variety of sink styles, and is durable and stain resistant. Of course, using tile will also require you to clean the grout every so often.
• Solid surface materials: This choice is easy to maintain and customize to any design specification. Solid surface materials are crafted to look like natural stone, meaning they’re available in dozens of colors and patterns. This extreme customization will push up the price point of your solid surface materials, however, so be sure you shop around for the best deal.
• Laminate: The laminate of today looks nothing like that of the past. This highly affordable option comes in a large selection of colors and patterns – some that even resemble natural stone materials. Laminate is impervious to water and stains, and is fairly durable. However, it can also be easily scratched or damaged.
• Wood: For a warm, natural feel with a fairly affordable price tag, choose a wood vanity top. You will, however, need to regularly maintain your wood countertop to ensure durability, and beware of the surface being easily scratched.
• Concrete: This option is highly versatile, durable and can be customized to fit any shape or be tinted any color. Concrete is extremely heavy, however, and must be sealed to prevent staining.

Which is the better choice: custom or stock vanity tops?

Which is better depends on your personal preferences and how much you’re willing to spend. If it’s difficult to find a stock countertop in your desired style and material that’s also compatible with your sink, it may be best to check out custom vanity tops instead. However, be aware that a custom vanity top will be more expensive.
