So, you’ve got the idea to start replacing your bathroom countertops, but you’re not sure where to start. Luckily, you’ve come to the right place. At GranitePro, we’ve got the options and the expertise you need to make sure your bathroom countertops are the absolute best they can be.

Your bathroom sink countertops should be perfect because that’s where the eye travels first when you walk into the room. And because the bathroom is one of the most highly frequented rooms of the home; there’s no space for anything less than perfection.

How Do I Choose a Material?

We’ve placed so much emphasis on the importance of bathroom countertops, but we don’t want you to be intimidated when choosing a material that makes sense for your home.

Here are some considerations to take before you choose:

Countertop durability

  • A lot goes on in your bathroom, and the countertop sees most of that activity. If your bathroom is a busy, hectic place, the countertop should be easy to clean and heat resistant as well. Hygiene is also important for a bathroom countertop, so keep that in mind.


  • The cost of your countertop slab will depend on a few things, including labor, transportation costs, and the price of the material. Keep your budget in mind when you consider your material.

Professional installation

  • When it comes to ultra-heavy stones like granite or marble, there’s no route to take other than professional installation. We know it can be tempting to cut corners and do it yourself, but we promise this isn’t the best time to try out your handyman skills. To prevent costly damage, stay safe and call the pros.


  • At GranitePro, we care about the environment, and we know that you do too. That’s why we’re here to remind you that locally sourced material has a smaller impact on the ecosystem because those materials don’t have to be transported across the country.

Bathroom Countertop Options

We are extremely proud of the selection we have in our showroom. Whether you’re looking to replace your vanity countertop or something bigger, we’ve definitely got options for you:


  • Granite never goes out of style, and it’s known for being incredibly durable. It has amazing and bold designs and patterns, and its capabilities go far beyond aesthetics too. It’s also very functional with its heat resistance, scratch resistance, and stain resistance. It’s easy to clean, only requiring soap and water, and it just asks for a regular sealing routine to ensure it can maintain its integrity over time.


  • Quartz does not require a sealing routine because it’s a nonporous, engineered stone. The additives in its composition, called polymers and resins, bind all the particles together and seal the pores. These ingredients (combined with the pigments for color) qualify quartz as a man-made material. That’s not to say it doesn’t perform well in bathrooms, though, because it does.


  • If you install marble for your bathroom countertops, your space is going to be the classiest room on the block, that’s for sure. Marble is a porous natural stone that requires a bit of maintenance, but if you truly love marble, that’s a small price to pay for this gorgeous stone. With its delicate and unique veining and colorations, marble countertops can make a small bathroom seem big by making the most of natural light.


  • Soapstone is an amazing choice for bathroom countertops because it’s not only heat resistant, but it’s nonporous too. It’s made of about 50 percent talc, which makes it feel soft to the touch (similar to the texture of soap), and it can last for generations. One thing about soapstone, though, is that it can scratch rather easily because of its soft nature.


  • Using porcelain countertops in your bathroom is a smart choice as they offer both functionality and style. With their water-resistant nature and easy-to-clean surface, porcelain countertops are perfect for withstanding the daily wear and tear of a bathroom while adding a touch of sophistication to the space.
