Are you embarrassed by all of the scratches, stains, and chips on your old bathroom countertops? If so, it may be time to replace them. Bathroom surfaces get a lot of use, especially if you have a large family. Water, mineral deposits, toothpaste, make-up, and other personal hygiene products can leave unsightly stains that are either difficult or impossible to remove.
If your bathroom countertops have seen more than their fair share of wear and tear, look into getting a replacement. You can make your bathroom shine again with a brand new custom countertop. Maybe you want to add surface space for added functionality. Or perhaps you’ve just redecorated and your old one looks out of place.
No matter what your reasoning is, you can find a fabulous new countertop to suit your needs. Choices range from sleek, low-maintenance stainless-steel designs to high-end cultured marble for a more elegant design. Glass countertops are available too, and are great for guest bathrooms. They require more cleaning so you might not want to choose glass for a busy bathroom.
Granite is popular because of its durability and resistance to stains. It also won’t show the dirt as much so you won’t feel the need to clean it quite as often as solid-color surfaces. If you choose granite for your countertop solution, you will need to keep in mind that it will need regular resealing and maintenance every 6 months to a year, depending on use and environmental conditions. Don’t use harsh chemicals or abrasive materials on granite because they will only end up damaging the smooth finish.
