Marble bathroom countertops are an elegant, long-lasting option for your bath space. Their mid-range pricing and natural appearance make them appealing to many homeowners, although it should be noted that marble countertops are generally softer and more porous than higher-end materials like granite, making them optimal for low-traffic guest bathrooms or powder rooms.

The dramatic veining and striking colorations marble can exhibit can be extremely attractive, which tends to make marble a great choice for traditional or period bathrooms. Marble is available in a variety of finishes as well, including polished (for a brilliant shine), honed (for a matte appearance) and antiqued (for a vintage look).

In terms of maintenance, marble requires sealing and regular upkeep, and you'll want to be especially careful with hair dyes, perfumes, colognes and bathroom cleaners, as all of these liquids can cause staining or etching.

Finally, if you're dead set on marble but operating on a budget, consider a more economically priced cousin—cultured marble. Composed of marble, polyester resin and pigments, this budget option is also more resistant to stains and scratches than natural marble.
