You will need to choose for your bathroom remodeling project a countertop to complement your major fixtures like your shower, toilet, vanity, etc. Some options of bathroom countertops include:

  • Laminate countertops
  • Corian countertops
  • Tile countertops

Granite countertops will provide a look of unique beauty and elegance in any type of bathroom. They are extremely durable and impervious to water because of their finish. Marble countertops also have a look of elegance with a wide range of colors and styles. In the past, marble countertops often developed hairline cracks over time, but the development of cultured marble has solved this problem. You can clean a marble or granite countertop with a simple application of liquid detergent (Pine Sol, Mr. Clean, and Turtle Wax) and warm water. If you choose one of these, remember not to use abrasive cleaners such as Comet and steel wool pads because they will scratch and dull the finish.

Laminate countertopsí exciting and inexpensive character makes it a popular choice for anybody looking to change their bathroom without the pressure of making the countertop decision for life. While a laminate countertop is strong; if it is not properly cared for, it can be scratched and stained.

Corian can also make a good countertop for your bathroom. Corian countertops offer a smooth surface and a variety of colors. Corian is made from an advanced blend of natural materials and pure acrylic polymer. These bathroom countertops are nonporous and are resistant to mold, mildew, and bacteria; as well as stain resistant. If a Corian countertop is ever damaged by heat-generating appliances, they are easily restored to their pristine condition by using an ordinary abrasive cleanser and a cleansing pad.

Tile countertops can also be very attractive in your new bathroom. Ceramic tile is very popular and can also be easy on your budget. Ceramic is practically indestructible (scratch and heat resistant) but may require high maintenance. The grout in the ceramic tile countertops may crack or become dirty over time. However, if maintained properly, ceramic tile will last in your bathroom for years to come.

When deciding which type of countertop is best for your new bathroom, remember to first consult your bathroom contractor. Your contractor will provide you with helpful information that is sure to satisfy your bathroom remodeling needs.
