Bathroom Countertops

Understanding How To Choose The Right Bathroom Countertop

Your bathroom countertops are the main focus of your bathroom, so whether you’re going for a full renovation or simply replacing the bathroom countertops you already have, there are many deciding factors that should be on your mind. Of course, functionality is important, but you also want to make sure that you love the look of your bathroom. And since the countertops are the heart of the room as a whole, you must get them right.

In the bathroom, countertops are exposed to more moisture than any other room—and that’s something you should remember as you shop for materials. At True Blue Surfaces, we offer a plethora of options that make any bathroom shine while withstanding the everyday use.

Check out this article to learn more about what you should remember when searching for bathroom countertops.

Types of Countertops in The Bathroom

There are a handful of different bathroom countertops to choose from. What you settle on depends on the style of your bathroom and your preferences.

Vessel top bathroom countertops

A vessel bathroom countertop is a slab of chosen material that sits on top of your lower cabinets and comes with only a very small hole for the sink basin’s drain fitting. This provides a space for you to set your toiletries and get ready in the morning. Many homeowners choose this style since it’s simple, versatile, and elegant.

Cut-out top countertopsCut-out top countertops

If you want a sink embedded, look into cut-out bathroom sink countertops. You can choose between an undermount sink or a drop-in sink. Many homeowners love this style because of the added degree of convenience that the sink allows.

Integrated vanity countertops

A vanity countertop combines the sink and the cabinet into a single unit, which saves space in a smaller bathroom. You can customize your vanity countertop in all sorts of ways, as there are single-bowl options and double-bowl options, or you can even choose a vanity countertop without a sink if you’ve already got one.


Bathroom Countertop Materials


Granite is an extremely durable natural stone. As long as you keep it sealed, it’ll remain strong against stains and liquid damage. Not only that, but it’s also known for its impressive heat resistance. This means that if you accidentally set a hot styling tool on its surface, you won’t have to worry about scorching or thermal shock.


Quartz gets sealed once during the fabrication process, then you don’t have to worry about it again! Quartz’s nonporous nature makes it a great choice for the bathroom because it’s unfriendly to germs and bacteria, which means it’s a highly hygienic option. It’s also great for stain resistance! Just make note of the fact that quartz does not have the same heat-resistance capability that granite does, and you’ll need to be careful with ultra-hot items around your countertop.


There are a few more details that you should keep in mind before diving in headfirst with a countertop:

  1. Size
    1. ○ The bathroom’s size plays a big role in the type of countertop you choose. Understand its height, width, and depth before you settle on a material
  2. Plumbing
    1. Plumbing is something that should be on the forefront of your mind if you’re redoing your bathroom. If plumbing needs an update, tend to that before refreshing your countertops.
  3. Style
    1. Before you start shopping, take a while to consider the style of the bathroom you’re looking to create. If you have a vision in mind, it’ll be much easier to bring it to life as you’re looking through our showroom.
