We are going to go over them in this article, so that you can find the right countertop for your new bathroom!
Quartz countertops are quickly increasing in popularity for many reasons. Quartz countertops require low maintenance as well as resistance to scratches and other damages. This type of bathroom countertop can be remarkably durable furthermore, can exceed in great condition for a long period of time. The surfaces can prevent external materials from penetrating into the surface, which provides excellent resistance to stains. Quartz is beautiful for its appearance and can implement a natural stone look.
Granite countertops are beautiful countertops with a unique look and pattern. Each one is extraordinarily different, so you’ll never receive one that is exactly the same as another. Most think that granite is the way to go when it comes to countertops because it’s the most beautiful. They also come in many different colors and combination of colors. Granite countertops are made of extremely hard material, which makes scratches more resistant.
Having these countertops appropriately sealed can go a long way towards protecting the surface and preventing those stains. It can also be resistant to heat, which prevents more damage from any hot tools, like curling irons that might be set on their surface. Granite is more in between quartz and marble, which means it stains less frequently but it is not quite resistant to stains. Having these types of bathroom countertops properly sealed is important to keeping it lasting longer.
Marble countertops are uniquely beautiful for bathrooms. Marble is highly customizable, in which allows for extremely versatile use. It can be shaped more easily than many other materials. There is a fault of acidic substances that can leave a stain, so it’s important to clean it up as soon as possible. It is a softer material so it can also be scratched easily. Marble bathroom countertops can increase overall value of the home as they can last a very long time.
Laminate countertops are more affordable, if you are on a budget when remodeling your bathroom. Mix and matching laminate to build the exact look you are wanting is easier than other materials. You can still get that high class look while staying within budget. Laminate countertops are made of plastic layers molded to particleboard or kraft paper, subsequently making this countertop durable.
You still want to make sure that you avoid placing hot tools or items directly onto the surface to prevent damage. Maintenance is easily obtained for this material. Gently cleaning the surface with soap and water will keep it looking like new. I wouldn’t recommend using any hard chemicals on this surface to prevent dulling of the shiny finish. With proper care, laminate countertops usually last from 10-20 years.
