The range of bathroom vanity tops available can seem overwhelming, but choosing the right material for your vanity countertop is a key aspect of bathroom design.

If you're sticking to a budget for your bathroom install or remodel, understanding the range of materials available for bathroom vanity tops and their pricing tiers will be extremely valuable. Your choice of vanity countertop can be driven by your style preferences, whereas kitchen countertops—which normally require materials with much more efficiency and durability—require a different set of considerations.

Bathroom Fireplace

Adding a fireplace to your bathroom is a great way to create a warm, relaxing space.

Granite is at the top of the price and quality scale for bathroom vanity top materials. This beautiful, incredibly durable stone is easy to clean and highly resistant to damage.

Manufactured quartz is another beautiful, durable, high-end option; it can imitate the look of various stone types, including granite.

Tile can be a great choice for a bathroom vanity countertop, if you're comfortable cleaning the grout lines. Larger tiles are now available that will reduce the amount of scrubbing you'll have to do, and choosing tiles with darker grout lines will help mask staining over time.

Finally, solid-surface materials are another a great budget option; these countertops can also faithfully reproduce the look of stone. Synthetic but extremely durable solid-surface counters are easy to clean, making them among the most popular choices for bathroom vanity tops.
