What Material is Best for My Modern Bathroom Countertops?
Every component in your bathroom plays a vital role in its functionality and to achieve a coherent overall design. Your bathroom countertops need to be carefully chosen to be both durable and functional. Homeowners are no longer confined to the limited bathroom countertop options of days gone by. Let’s explore the various modern bathroom countertop options available, to best suit your design and practical requirements.
What Characteristics should a Modern Bathroom Countertop Have?
To give your bathroom a modern appearance, don’t go with a countertop top that is extreme in design. By going with a completely different or perhaps unsuitable material, you could undermine the durability of your countertop. The following factors should be taken into account when looking to choose your ideal modern bathroom countertop:
Water Resistance – Your new countertop has to have a degree of water resistance. Materials that are porous will be vulnerable to water damage, particularly around the seams where the sink and faucets are located.
Maintenance – One of the more popular choices is sealed stone as this stylish option is available in a variety of colors and finishes. As stone can be porous, it is vital that it is properly cleaned and then sealed to increase its lifespan.
Planning your bathroom remodel can be an exciting time. Just remember that it is a high traffic area, and each element needs to be water resistant. It’s important to make good decisions from the start in terms of material, design and contacting only reliable bathroom remodeling contractors. ABA Remodeling has ample experience with both large and small bathroom remodel projects. We will gladly guide you through the process of making critical bathroom remodeling decisions that balance style and functionality.
Popular Choices in Modern Bathroom Countertops
Once you get underway with your bathroom renovations plans, at some point you need to consider which bathroom countertops are best. You want to go with an option that is both stylish and practical. Keep reading to learn more about the more popular options, including Corian, granite, marble, quartz and Tere-Stone.
Modern Bathroom Countertops made of Corian
Corian is a popular choice for bathroom countertops as it looks just like stone but is in fact a solid surface. Corian countertops are available in various colors, designs, shades and finishes, including a chic matte finish. The one-piece structure appeals to many clients that are looking for a seamless solution for their bathroom refinishing project. Corian is a fantastic product to consider and suitable for most bathroom renovations.
The non-porous structure of Corian countertops makes them stain resistant and incredibly easy to clean. Corian countertops hold their rich color over the years, so you do not have to worry about color fading due to sun exposure or wear and tear.
Modern Bathroom Countertops made of Granite
Bathroom contractors often install granite countertops as natural stone is very popular. Granite is regarded as a high-quality choice. A granite countertop is usually installed as a thick solid slab with a custom cut opening to fit the sink.
Granite is one of the most widely used natural stone choices for bathrooms due its unique character and durability. Each countertop is unique as it contains natural color flecks that are different for each slab.
After carefully cleaning the stone, use a soft cloth to apply a sealant. This helps to keep your countertop from sustaining water damage and will prolong its lifespan. Your bathroom remodeling design specialist can assist you with choosing just the right granite option to realize your dream bathroom.
Modern Bathroom Countertops made of Marble
Marble is a stylish and luxury choice. Marble can add a distinct touch of elegance to your bathroom and can easily act as a statement piece. Each marble countertop is unique due to the thick color veins that run differently through each individual slab. You will have a one-of-a-kind masterpiece by nature, in your bathroom.
Keep in mind that marble is a fragile, porous stone, therefore it will require some maintenance. Similar to granite, marble needs to be properly sealed in order to increase its lifespan and avoid water damage.
Modern Bathroom Countertops made of Quartz
Most of the quartz countertops available today are not solid slabs of quartz stone but are generally made up from 90% ground quartz. They are almost identical to the natural quartz stone, yet much more durable. Quartz looks beautiful in a bathroom and will also bring a touch of luxury to your space, much like solid stone options. Quartz’s coloring is more uniform and there are a large variety of options to choose from.
One of the more obvious benefits of quartz is that because it is a manufactured material, it is less porous, therefore less prone to stains or water damage.
Modern Bathroom Countertops made of Tere-Stone
Tere-stone is a practical solution as it effortlessly combines the style and grace of natural stone with durability. Bathroom countertops made of Tere-Stone are incredibly strong and resilient.
Tere-Stone offers a wide selection of colors and finishes, which is sure to please even the most discerning homeowner. Browse through the ABA Remodeling design options to find ideas for your next bathroom remodel.
