Bathroom countertops differ from their kitchen cousins in that they don't have to be tough enough to resist the scraping, banking and heat from hot pots, plates, and everything else being put down on them fresh off the stove. They're also never going to have to make do as temporary chopping boards or resist the kinds of stains that oils, wine, and other foods can cause to a kitchen countertop. A bathroom countertop still has a practical job to do but greater importance can be placed on its looks. Your bathroom countertop should help transform your bathroom into a private palace, a haven that is comforting, fresh, and calming. We can help you with that.
While marble is usually avoided for heavy use surfaces like kitchens it's a timeless classic for the bathroom. Marble naturally comes in a wide range of colors with patterns and veins formed in fire (it's an igneous rock) that are unique to each slab so your bathroom countertop is inevitably the only one just like it. Marble is slightly porous though, which is one of the reasons why it isn't recommended in kitchens (the other is that sharp knives will scratch it and heavy pans may chip it) which means that spills of more aggressive liquids like nail polish remover could potentially stain. The good news is that the professionals at Bathroom Remodel Dayton Ohio can seal the surface of your beautiful marble surfaces to give them that much needed extra protection against accidental spills.
Granite and Quartz
Granite is a seriously tough customer hewn from volcanic rocks at the quarry, trimmed to size and shipped to your home. It gives a solid look to any bathroom countertop and can be stained or tinted to a wide range of colors to suit your theme. It's not cheap, but of course the flip side of that coin is that it lasts forever and will add serious resale value along with its good looks.
Quartz countertops aren't true slabs of quartz at all but are instead made from ground quartz and other stones bonded with resin. The colors are more uniform that natural stone, the result is actually stronger than natural stone slabs and because they are made to shape they can easily incorporate basin forms.
Solid Surface and Concrete
Concrete isn't the drab old gray stuff you're thinking of. It's now a subtle material stained to any color you can think of and polished to a glass like finish or left with a satin surface. It's tough, cost-effective, and can be poured around any shape or any plumbing features to give a strong, smooth, stylish finish. Solid surface is a mix of acrylic and polyester that can also be shaped to anything you like and set to an appearance and hardness that looks like natural stone.
