Granite is considered the Rolls Royce for countertop materials because of its impeccable strength and stunning appearance that fits traditional to contemporary looks.
In our showroom, you will find different hues and patterns of granite slabs for your bathroom vanities. Some of the top-rated colors include white, black, red, beige, brown, and gray granite. White granite countertops is an exceptional choice for small bathrooms because it adds great brilliance and that chic-and-neat appeal.
No worries about dents and scratches for it can be impressionable and resist it without a doubt. Extreme heat is also not a problem with granite considering it is made under intense temperature and pressure.
Sealing maintenance is required for this natural stone because it has a high porosity level. Despite its premier quality and elegance, granite is still affordable at $50 to $100 per square foot installed. Homeowners and remodelista are eyeing for this material because of its ability to increase your property’s value.
2. Runner Up – Engineered Quartz Stone

The only thing you have to look after for quartz is heat and UV rays. Do not directly place hot items on top for it can burn the plastic resin binders. Meanwhile, exposure for long hours under UV rays can discolor your quartz natural stone.

Based on industry average, marble is reasonably priced at $125 to $150 per square foot installed. To increase its resistance to stains and moisture, we do impregnate sealants into your marble counter once a year.
4. Solid Surface Stone
This is another synthetic material used for bathroom vanities. Like quartz, it is made from pulverized mineral mixed with acrylic resins to seal off pores and make it resistant to stains and moisture.
Upon fabrication, the designs of natural stone are copied by creating random flecks and specks of colors around the slab. Consequently, you have more design options for man-made stones like solid surfaces compared to natural stones like granite and marble.
Because this material is relatively dense and heavy, you will need the help of our professionals for the customization and installation process. Some of the best brands of solid surface include Gibraltar, Formica, and Corian. This material is economically priced at $40 to $100 per square foot installed.
5. Versatile and Durable Concrete
Concrete is known for its industrial appeal and function but it also serves as an exceptional material for your bathroom vanity tops. The main gripe about this material is its difficulty to install and the risk of cracking.
Nonetheless, the benefits of concrete outweighs its cons as a suitable bathroom countertop. You can seamlessly modify its shape, color, and texture to match other accents and accessories inside your shower and bath.
Similar to granite and marble, concrete is also very porous and prone to stains and mildews. The best way to combat this would be proper sealing maintenance which can be done once a year or monthly.
With all the benefits and perks of concrete, still it has an affordable price of $65 to $135 per square foot installed.
