What to Know Before Buying Bathroom & Kitchen Countertops

If you’re considering investing in custom bathroom or kitchen countertops, there are a few reasons to take your time before settling on a material. Countertops are highly visible and often serve as focal points in bathrooms and kitchens. So you’ll want a material that stands the test of time—not only in terms of looks and toughness but also in terms of functionality, budget, and resale value. If you’re unsure about which material to choose, the insights below will help.


There’s a lot to love about granite. Not only is it durable and resistant to scratches, but it’s also heat and moisture-resistant, making it an excellent choice for high-traffic areas. Granite is also timeless and elegant and comes in various colors and patterns, providing greater versatility than other materials. Additionally, granite can add value to your home, as many buyers consider it an attractive and upgraded feature. If you’re shopping on a budget, granite is generally more expensive than materials like laminate but we have a wide array of instock colors that allow us to provide the most cost effective granite to our customers. The upside is that granite is a long-term investment; with proper maintenance, granite can last a lifetime.


Quartz is another excellent choice for kitchens and bathrooms, primarily due to its durability and resistance to scratches, stains, and impacts. Quartz doesn't require regular sealing or maintenance unlike natural stone options, making it a low-effort, long-lasting investment. In terms of looks, quartz is a clear winner. It comes in a diverse range of colors, patterns, and finishes and we have a wide array of instock colors that allow us to provide the most cost effective quartz to our customers Plus, it’s a hygienic option as it is non-porous. Like granite, quartz is also easy to clean, can increase resale value, and is as tough as elegant.

Solid Surface

You’ll like solid surface countertops if you are looking for a wide array of color options and budget price points, but do not want to compromise on durability and aesthetics. Solid surface countertops are made from a combination of acrylic or polyester materials which allows for one of its best features, integrated sinks. So, while these materials are man-made and contain synthetic components, they can mimic the look of natural stone like quartz and marble. They are also highly durable, eco-friendly, low maintenance, and hygienic, offering virtually unlimited customization, which is why they are one of the best options for residential and commercial use.

Butcher Block

They say butcher block is back in style? The truth is that it never went out of fashion. Known for its warm and natural appearance, butcher block adds a touch of natural beauty, especially in kitchens. Other standout features of this material are: it is unlikely to chip or crack, can be easily sanded and repaired, is highly customizable, and is often more affordable than other countertop materials.

However, in bathrooms, because of the higher moisture and humidity levels, butcher blocks may not be the best option as they are prone to warping, swelling, or even mold and mildew growth over time.


Thanks to improved manufacturing processes, laminate has become a sleek, versatile, and cost-friendly option for kitchens and bathrooms. Modern laminate can closely mimic the look of natural stone, wood, quartz and other high-end materials. While not as durable as granite or quartz, laminate is still resistant to stains and moisture. Plus, it’s easy to install, highly customizable, and comes in various colors and patterns.
