When designing or renovating a home, bathrooms aren’t often the first spaces that come to mind. However, giving the bathroom ample consideration can make a world of difference for your home’s overall aesthetic. 

Given the amount of time we spend in the bathroom, there are many factors to consider. Whether you are designing a new bathroom or renovating your bathroom space, choosing a suitable countertop is a good place to start. After all, a vanity top often serves as a centrepiece in the bathroom.

While your style may influence the chosen countertop, you also need to ensure that it is practical. For instance, quartz bathroom countertops, in addition to offering a luxurious appeal, still provide a strong and durable surface. This durability means homeowners will not have to worry that their quartz vanity will chip or crack. That said, quartz is just one example of the best countertop materials that could help inspire your bathroom project.

Having established that there is a plethora of vanity options to choose from, one that meets all your bathroom demands would be a stellar choice. Also, the kind of visual appeal it gives your sink top is important. On that note, quartz vanities, among others, seem to fit the bill for an ideal bathroom countertop.

Qualities of Quartz Bathroom Countertops 

For those who have their heart set on quartz for a vanity top, the countertop options at Caesarstone are plentiful, and homeowners can be rest assured that they are purchasing an eye-catching, premium product.

That said, let’s look at all the qualities homeowners should consider when choosing the ideal quartz bathroom countertop.

1. Strength and Durability

Quartz bathroom countertops are among the strongest stone countertops on the market.

In addition, they are known to be highly durable. This feature gives the material the added benefit of being unlikely to crack or chip.

This is an important factor to consider when purchasing bathroom countertops as they tend to endure everyday wear and tear.

2.    Stain Resistance 

Because of its non-porous nature, quartz is stain resistant. This is a strong advantage for a sink top that is made to hold products like shampoo, hair gels, cosmetics, skincare products, and the like. In the event that any of these spill on a quartz countertop surface, it will be very easy to clean. As well, quartz countertops do not require any sealing.

3.    Ease of Maintenance 

Bathroom quartz countertops do not need special daily maintenance. Wiping them down with mild soap, water, and a soft cloth is all they require to remain in optimal condition. If the countertops do experience any stubborn stains over time, a quick clean with an approved cleaner is all that is required.

4.    Hygiene 

Thanks to quartz’s non-porous nature, it is highly resistant to bacteria, mold, and mildew. This means homeowners can be rest assured that they have a hygienic countertop, perfect for staying healthy.

5.    Heat Resistance 

Caesarstone’s quartz does provide extra resistance against heat; however, it is not heatproof. This means the countertops should not be exposed to heat for a prolonged period. So, like any other countertop, it is recommended that heating devices like curling irons avoid direct contact with the vanity.

6 Bathroom Vanity Designs 

As mentioned earlier, you would be starting your bathroom revamp on the right foot if you began with the sink top. Thus, we have come up with six striking bathroom countertop ideas to inspire you.

1.    White Elegance 

White is a classic go-to hue for any bathroom. If you seek a bright, crisp elegance, 1111 Vivid White is your best bet. This colour brings the full reflection of light and space to your vanity. 1141 Pure White may also be an ideal choice for graceful, cultivated white countertops in your bathroom space.

2.    Contemporary Style 

For a design that aligns with the appearance of a contemporary bathroom, homeowners can opt for a colour like 5141 Frosty Carrina. The soft, crystalline details will result in a polished, modern-day look for your washroom.

3.    High Contrast 

Can you ever go wrong with black and white? While the answer is as clear as day, a bathroom designed in a refined palette of black-and-white colours, patterns, and finishes puts an end to any debate on this subject. To achieve this look, pair Caesarstone’s 5100 Vanilla Noir with white cabinetry for the perfect contrast.

4.    Floating Vanity 

A floating vanity crafted entirely from quartz is an great way to flaunt the beauty of the engineered stone. This design also creates the illusion of a larger space. A colour like 5031 Statuario Maximus would bring a striking appeal to this design.

5.    Grey Confidence 

Grey is a versatile colour that can bring a warm, homey feel or a modern, industrial vibe, depending on a homeowner’s preference. Check out our colour page to learn more on how our shades of grey can transform your bathroom space.
