Right Place, Right Time

Save with your materials and color choices. These bathroom countertops are Silestone, a quartz material that can get pricey. But Atlanta DIY blogger and stylist Jo Torrijos purchased them from a home improvement store at the right time -- when there was a special offer. Plus, she says the color she chose was in the “A” category, so it was one of the less expensive color options and comparable to lower-priced granite.

Au Naturel

Use live-edge wood slabs for a rustic countertop, like in this intown Atlanta bathroom designed by Karen Hott Interiors. You can find live-edge countertops for bathroom vanities for $200-$300 via online artisan marketplaces. You can also salvage wood from fallen trees and work with a craftsman to get the finish you want, depending on your budget.
