The Best Countertops For Your Bathroom
We all want our home to look as best as it can. This includes the bathrooms found in your house. One of the main aspects that make your bathroom stand out is the countertops found here. There are a number of different natural stones that can be used for countertops, but which one works the best for your bathroom? Each countertop material comes with a number of different benefits that can make them the best choice for your bathroom.
What works best for your kitchen may not work as well for your bathroom. Rather than food and beverages being found on the countertop, in the bathroom, you’ll find lipstick and hair products. It’s important to test how these products work with bathroom countertops. Through different testing, we want to help you find the best countertops for your bathroom.
There are some countertop materials that will scratch or stain too easily. These include stone, marble, and limestone. Instead of buying these, here are four countertop materials that we think work perfectly for your bathrooms.
You can never go wrong with the king of countertop materials. Granite is a natural stone which means each slab is unique. You’ll find granite in a number of different colors and patterns which makes it unique to you and your home. Granite is a durable material that does a great job of resisting abrasions and heat damage. It also does an incredible job of resisting stains and scoring. Compared to other natural stones, Granite will need more maintenance than others. It will also need to be resealed occasionally to ensure no stains occur. A good way to test this is to see if water sinks into the countertop rather than floats on top.
Laminate countertops have come a long way from when they first appeared. Laminate countertops today now look almost indistinguishable from granite, marble, wood, and even leather countertops. Laminate is made from layers of plastic and bound to a particleboard core. Since it’s a man-made material, it’s price-efficient and extremely resistant to stains, heat, and chips. It is easier to scratch compared to other choices.
This is another man-made material that makes it more affordable. This is a mix of quartz and other resins and pigments to create a variety of different styles that look like natural stone. Unlike other stone slabs, quartz countertops are more durable and require half the maintenance. They also don’t need to be sealed. Quartz is incredibly durable and resistant to abrasions, heat damage, and stains.
Ultracompact countertops, commonly known as Dekton, are a combination of Quartz, porcelain, and glass. These countertops come in a number of different patterns and pigments that make them look like stone or concrete. Through different tests, this countertop material was able to resist abrasions, heat, and stains. The only test it failed was the “high drop” test. When an object was dropped from more than 2 feet, it would result in a crack. It is, however, unlikely that an object heavy enough would fall from this height.
