Whether you are remodeling a bathroom or building a new construction home, you will be faced with many options for your bathroom countertops. There are many materials to choose from for your bathroom countertops, but we are going to focus on three of the most popular options we see today: solid surface, laminate, and natural stone. All three of these bathroom countertops come with fantastic benefits and some drawbacks. Weighing your options will help to ensure that you are installing the best product for your home and family.

Bathroom Countertops: Pros and Cons of Three Popular Options

  • Solid Surface – Solid surface bathroom countertops come in many colors and textures and can be easily matched. They are easy to care for and maintain. They can be poured into a seamless countertop with a built-in sink basin. The look of these countertops can appear to be a little fake compared to actual stone, and they can scorch if something hot is placed on them.
  • Laminate – Laminate bathroom countertops are very well priced to fit any budget. There is a large selection in colors and patterns. This countertop material is often viewed as a low-cost countertop and is lacking the heft or weight of more costly materials.
  • Natural Stone – Granite, marble, travertine, and slate are all natural stone options for bathroom countertops. They are viewed as more luxurious than other countertop materials. Natural stone does require some upkeep and maintenance. It is also more expensive than many other options.
