Granite is incredibly durable and presents a high-quality, natural surface that's easy to clean. Because of these advantages over other materials, granite is generally the most expensive option for bathroom vanity tops. There are many types of granite to explore, however, at various price levels. Additionally, granite is available in an almost infinite number of styles and colors, from matte to glossy, solid to flecked or speckled—so you'll have plenty of choices to match the style of your bathroom.

In terms of pricing, you can expect to spend $50 - $60 per square foot for materials and installation for basic granite vanity tops. This type of granite will not be of the highest quality—it may not be as durable than higher-quality granite, and it may be susceptible to scratching or chipping. It will still have a beautiful appearance at a budget price, however.

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

Finally, on the high end of the scale, you can expect to pay around $70 - $100 per square foot for granite vanity tops that are just about guaranteed to last a lifetime.
