Quartz makes some of the best new bathroom countertops
Often called quartz, engineered countertops are made from crystals of quartz held together by resin binders. With an appearance that is remarkably similar to marble or granite, quartz countertops will offer you more benefits that any other natural stone countertop.
For starters, quartz countertops are much easier to clean and maintain and are therefore the best for new bathroom countertops. Also, Quartz comes with a uniform coloration. This means that your countertops will complement and blend in beautifully with any bathroom design.
Just like other countertops, quartz countertops come in a wide variety of colors and designs. Granite Plus has a collection of earth tones, different shades of grey, rose hues among others. Although most of these colors are gotten from the natural colors of quartz, our fabricators can get you a countertop with more colors to match your desired tone.
A finished quartz countertop is very hard with good durability. This means that it will hold up nicely to wear and tear. The surface and the structure of quartz countertops is what makes them the best for new bathroom countertops.
Granite also makes durable new bathroom countertops
Perhaps the biggest benefit of having granite countertops that has earned them a spot in this list, is the fact that they can be cleaned and disinfected incredibly easily. When properly sealed, Granite becomes non-porous and leaving no room for fissures or cracks, which are extremely difficult to disinfect.
As one of the hardest natural stones, granite is the same high quality as quartz, although considered more exotic than quartz. This means it is very durable, making it a great choice for new bathroom countertops that will be frequently used and will need to be regularly disinfected.
Granite countertops are scratch- and heat-resistant and if properly sealed, they can last as long as your structure. The longevity of your granite countertops will be determined by the type of sealant you use.
Solid Surfacing is a great pick for new bathroom countertops
Solid Surfacing is a countertops option available in a variety of colors and patterns. In modern bathrooms, they are commonly used for counters, backsplashes or sink, to create a seamless look since they have almost invisible seams. And just like quartz, solid surfacing come in consistent colors. Solid surfacing are mostly resistant to stains, and the small nicks and scratches can easily be repaired.
Laminate can be a great pick for new bathroom countertops
Laminate countertops are cheap, easy to install, and very beautiful when properly installed, and it’s all thanks to the modern printing tech and fancy edges. Stains or heat won’t damage laminates, making this a great option for new bathroom countertops.
