Bathroom Vanity Countertop Resurfacing

There are several options for homeowners seeking bathroom countertops, including quartz, granite, stone, laminate, tile, and more. Whether you’re installing new countertops or refinishing old, worn-out surfaces, choosing countertops for the bathroom requires careful consideration. Here are some top materials for vanity countertops and tips to help you find the best solutions for your bathroom.

Bathroom Countertop Materials

People updating old bathroom countertops with beautiful, durable hybrid coatings can resurface over old laminate and tile counters to save more. Resurfacing over old countertop materials keeps the cost low and eliminates the need to tear out and trash those old counters. You will get the look of expensive solid surface marble, quartz, and granite but without the high price tag. 

These countertops are waterproof, durable, and aesthetically pleasing. Quartz, marble and granite designed counters also provide your home with a better resale value. You can find bathroom countertops made using unusual materials like crushed glass, stainless steel, concrete, and wood. Most homes, however, feature laminate, stone, solid surface, tile (ceramic, porcelain), and quartz countertops.

Choosing Bathroom Countertops

Some people prefer the look of Carrara Marble, Soapstone, Quartz, Granite, Stone, and more. No single material or design suits everyone, so choosing vanity countertops for your unique needs is essential. Here are the top three aspects you should review when looking to install new bathroom countertops:

• Durability – The bathroom environment is more unforgiving than kitchens but requires countertops that are durable for daily use and abuse. The countertop should be capable of standing up to water, soap, cosmetics, and other chemicals. Scratch resistant and UV resistant materials are also very important. 

• Budget – Laminate, and tile offer the most inexpensive vanity countertops and suit those seeking budget friendly options. Conversely, marble, quartz and granite are the most expensive. Our Hybrid resurfacing coatings feature advantages like water and UV resistance, unmatched aesthetics, custom designs, and higher resale value. Without the expense of real marble or stone. 

• Maintenance – Some bathroom countertops require more maintenance work than others. Ceramic and porcelain tile countertops are easier to install, but the grout calls for better care. Solid surfaces may not require much care but will scorch under heat. Make sure you review the maintenance requirement before deciding.

Granite, marble, soapstone and quartz countertops provide visually impressive countertops, but at an expense. Those seeking low maintenance and inexpensive options can install laminate or cultured marble. Epoxy countertops offer an excellent choice for functional, durable, aesthetic, and easy to install models. Affordable options without tearing out the old countertops.

Maintenance, Repair, and Resurfacing

Each vanity countertop material and design comes with advantages and disadvantages you should weigh to determine the best countertop for your needs. Once your countertop is installed, you should do everything to maintain its fresh appearance. Some materials like laminate require low maintenance; regular cleaning is enough.

Others like natural stones require careful use and maintenance. Bathroom countertops also get old, calling for repair and resurfacing. Epoxy is probably the easiest to resurface. Natural stone countertops are more challenging to repair and resurface. Our hybrid coating options, however, accommodate refinishing, so you can easily update the look without tearing everything apart.

Bathroom Countertop Cost

The cost of installing or replacing a bathroom vanity countertop ranges from a couple of hundred dollars to thousands depending on various factors. Material is the primary determinant, but the size and installation service also influence the budget. If you need to tear down existing structures, you’ll pay more for the extra services.

Countertop removal usually costs between $100 and $500, while new installations can take $300 to $4,000 or more. You may also require a plumbing extension or replacement. Premade vanities are also cheaper than custom-built countertops. Granite and other natural stones are the most expensive materials.

Installing a Bathroom Vanity Countertop

Bathroom countertops come in different materials and designs, so there’s no standard offer for everyone. You can customize yours as much as you want, provided you choose reputable kitchen and bathroom remodelers. Whether you prefer epoxy countertops or expensive granite and quartz, there are several options to choose from. You can shop around to determine the ideal choice for your needs.
