Granite is widely considered one of the best choices among countertop materials. If you're considering granite bathroom countertops, you'll want to browse all options for pricing, quality and maintenance.

Granite is incredibly durable and it has a high-quality, natural surface that's easy to clean. Because of its advantages over other materials, granite is generally the most expensive option for bathroom countertops. However, there is a range of granite types to explore, along with various price levels. Additionally, granite is available in an almost infinite variety of styles and colors, from matte to glossy, solid to speckled—so you'll have plenty of options to match the style of your bathroom.

Spa-Like Retreat

This long island en suite designed by Vincente Wolf achieves an aqueous quality of being underwater through the seafoam green glass walls. A mix of touches from the past with modern elements creates a unique space that is contemporary, yet timeless.

Minimalist Warmth

In a beach house southwest of Santa Barbara, designer Moore Ruble Yudell creates a stunning bathroom with an unobstructed view of the Pacific Ocean. A combination of a tub-side fireplace and a flat screen television gives the lucky bather a luxury of choices. All the elements are at play with a double-sided fireplace dividing the serene master bedroom from the en suite and a large bathtub facing the view through floor-to-ceiling windows.

Cottage Chic

Designer John Barman creates a bathing beauty located within a beautiful East Hampton home. This traditional bathroom features a large central communal antique bath and sinks with separate toilet areas for male and female members of the family on either end of the room.

Baroque Style

In San Francisco, architect Andrew Skurman designs an elegant French-style bathroom with a custom tub surround and floor, beautiful mirrored cabinets and a sparkling chandelier.

Beachfront Bath

With a sliding glass window that opens to a magnificent view of the Pacific Ocean, the infinity tub in this Malibu bathroom is the perfect place to relax. Celebrity designer Nicole Sassaman combines slate stacked stone with the teakwood and the other darker woods for a minimal, yet luxurious look.

Craftsman Style

This Chicago en suite has the look and feel of an arts-and-crafts original, but has features Frank Lloyd Wright could never have imagined. The fake window above the tub mimics the window in the next room, so the light comes in, yet the homeowner has total privacy. The dramatic vaulted ceiling steals space from the attic above to make the height of the eight-foot ceiling feel much grander. Design by Stuart Cohen

It's All Black

Found in the trendy Chelsea neighborhood, an all-black 3,500-square-foot loft with a bath that has everything but privacy with only curtains as an option to enclose the space. It's less of a functional space and more of an extension of the homeowners' art gallery with pink and yellow neon signs and a Gucci bicycle. Design by Stefan Boublil

Luxurious Elegance

This master bathroom of a grand Connecticut estate is designed by Joan Chan. Italian honey onyx walls and floors are accented white onyx to create an impressive and impeccable look.

Glamorous and Feminine

In Toronto, designer Lori Morris creates a sumptuous bathroom featuring a center panel tub, onyx inlays, carved moldings, a fireplace and delicately embroidered linen drapes. No expense has been spared to maintain the perfect tub-centric symmetry between the French door entry and sight lines through to the Juliet balcony.

Bath in the Attic

The surprise in this historic prairie-style house is the bright orange bathroom in the attic. As a fresh take on a traditional space, the lines are very austere and strong. Big sheets of back-painted glass are used instead of tiles because they're visually cleaner and much easier to clean. Design by Katherine Zalewski

For basic granite countertops, you can expect to spend $50 to $60 per linear foot for materials and installation. This type of granite will not be of the highest quality—it may be less durable than higher-quality granite, and susceptible to scratching or chipping, for example—but it will still have a beautiful appearance at a budget price.

For a better-quality granite, you can expect to pay $60 to $70 per linear foot. This granite type will be slightly more durable, and more resistant to scratching and chipping.

Finally, on the high end of the scale, you can expect to pay up to $200 per linear foot (sometimes more) for granite countertops that are just about guaranteed to last a lifetime.
