Bathroom Remodeling: Choosing New Countertops and Cabinets


Table of Contents

There are many ways you can remodel your bathroom. But the key is to ensure you touch on the heart of the matter, which is your cabinets and countertop. These are very noticeable and is likely the first thing you see when you walk into the restroom. For this reason, you want to make it appealing. Today, you have a large variety of options to choose from. In this guide, we will cover some of different options you can choose for your upcoming bathroom remodel. 

Let’s take a quick look at different countertop options first.

Marble Countertops

Natural stone countertops continue to take over the bathroom remodeling scene. This includes installing new marble countertops on top of vanities. Marble that’s highly polished adds a a sense of elegance to the bathroom it’s installed into. And what makes marble even more attractive is its great selection of color options. You can go for white, pale pink, blue, black, brown and everything else in between. What really makes natural stone appealing is the fact it has veins that come in unique patterns. This makes it, so no two slabs are the same. Just make sure you regularly seal it, so that it doesn’t get damaged over time.

Granite Countertops

When it comes to hardness, granite is much tougher than marble. This is one of the reasons it costs more, and homeowners choose it over marble. It’s created through volcanic activity, which gives it its gorgeous appearance. Other pros about it is that it’s naturally resistant to bacteria. And if you properly seal it, then it will become highly resistant to stains. Then there’s the fact it’s difficult to scratch. There are many striking color options you can choose from. It too has unique veins, which make it so that no two slabs are the same. It’s like having your own countertop fingerprint.

Quartz Countertops

This is an engineered stone, so you have more color options than with the natural stone slabs. However, because it’s man-made, the veins won’t be unique per slab. If you desire a countertop that has a consistent veining pattern, then engineered quartz is a good option for you. The durability of quartz is bar none – to the point where it doesn’t require any sealing whatsoever. It’s resistant to scratches, stains and heat. This is good news since it’s going in the bathroom where bad things can happen to a countertop.

Choosing Cabinets for Your Bathroom Remodeling

When it comes to choosing vanities and cabinets for your bathroom, you must consider the application and purpose. For instance, if you want more storage space, then you want to go with more cabinets along the walls. You can even have one that’s installed above the tub area just for your linen and towels. Look at all the wall space you must see where you want additional cabinetry installed. There are different sizes to choose from, such as those that are tall and narrow and others that are short and wide.

Then as for the material, you can choose from a different variety of woods and man-made materials. There are many different brands that have beautiful stains and finishes. As for the vanity, you can choose between one that has a single sink or double sink. If you’re redoing the master bathroom and you share it, then a double sink or two vanities are ideal for quicker morning routines. Be careful to match your cabinets with the stone countertops you choose for your bathroom. You may want to get a contrasting color. For instance, black countertops and light brown or white cabinets.
