Three Tips for Choosing Bathroom Countertops

Written by Planet Granite, Inc. on . Posted in Counter Tops, Granite, Granite Countertops, Home, Interior Design

Every home in Colorado Springs needs great bathroom countertops. Choosing the best option requires you to know a little bit about the different materials available. There are three that stand above the rest in popularity and value. They are marble, granite and quartz. Let’s talk about how those three compare and how those comparisons can help you in your decision.

Bathroom Countertops and Style

Style is often the first thing that comes to mind. You want countertops that look good and make you happy. It’s important to prioritize what you like in this decision. All three materials come in a wide variety of colors, patterns and visual options. You’ll be able to pick a style you like regardless.

What might influence your decision is value. While quartz is a great option, granite and marble have better resale value. If you ever sell the home with the beautiful bathroom, granite and marble get a little more bang for the buck.

Durability of Different Countertops

Then again, resale value only matters if you sell, and if things are in good condition when you do. All three of these stones are tough, and that’s part of their value. That said, marble is the most vulnerable of the three. It’s easier to scratch than granite, and you can’t buff the scratches like you can with quartz. Marble is also more prone to staining than the other two.

Maintenance

In terms of maintenance, quartz is the friendliest material. If the quartz is damaged, it needs to be repaired, but it can be, and that’s a nice bonus. Granite should be sealed, and it needs to be resealed every 6 to 12 months. Otherwise, keeping it clean is pretty basic. Marble doesn’t require much more effort than granite, but spills need to be cleaned more aggressively, as it is more prone to staining.
