Countertops are not only a functional surface in your bathroom – they can also be a beautiful design element as well. But with so many options on the market, how do you choose? The first step to any decision should be how you use your bathroom on a daily basis. So, below are a few questions to consider before making a purchase:


What kind of bathroom are you planning? 
A power room, a functional family room, a master bath? Consider this question before deciding anything. Because if you’re planning on creating a powder room, you might not experience the same mess you might if you’re building a full bathroom for a family of four. Also, think about the products you will use, from toothpaste to makeup, and even hairspray! And don’t forget about those sticky children’s medicines too. If your bathroom will be for the family, limestone is a good option, as it would stand up to yucky messes as mentioned.

How many people will be using the bathroom? 
The more people that use the bathroom, the more mess you’ll probably have, especially if you have small children or teenagers. So, choose a countertop that’s durable and will withstand a large crowd!

How long do you plan on staying in the home?
This question is perhaps one of the most important when it comes to your budget. Do you plan on staying for many years? If so, don’t be hesitant to splurge a bit – it will be worth the investment in the long run! However, if you’re looking to upgrade and sell your home shortly, go for something that looks great but is practical too.

Do you want an eco-friendly countertop?

What kind of material do you want for your bathroom countertops? If you think you’d prefer a countertop made from environmentally friendly materials, your best bet is to choose one of the recycled-content surfaces that are made from glass or paper. This is a simple way to “go green” for your bathroom design!

Once you answer these questions, you’ll be able to narrow down your options. Hence, your decision will be an easier one. Whether you choose a limestone, laminate, marble, or stone countertop, make sure you keep it looking brand new! Need some assistance? Call the textile specialists at Triple S!
