Bathroom Granite Countertop Costs
After 15. New granite countertops and undermounted, easy to clean sinks were installed in this bathroom for a much more modern feel.
Granite is generally considered the highest quality countertop material available, and if you're considering using granite for counter surfaces in your bathroom, you'll want to explore the tiers of bathroom granite countertop costs.
Splurge Where It Matters
If you want to splurge on one item, find ways to save elsewhere. HGTV fan KarenSpirit bought a slightly damaged clawfoot tub for $90 and a $900 vanity online. The seamless shower doors are a design splurge with fabulous dividends.
A Complete Overhaul For $500
This floor-to-ceiling bathroom makeover cost about $500, including plumbing, electrical and paint. Meredith and Stephen Heard of Welcome to Heardmont removed the popcorn ceilings, then painted the walls and vanity. Meredith even made the striped curtain herself using a flat white sheet and yellow fabric paint.
Goodbye, Basic Beige
A stenciled ceiiling is as dramatic as it is affordable. Michelle Hinckley of 4 Men 1 Lady found this graphic lattice design and stenciled it with beige and the same gray hue used on the walls. The result? A dramatic focal point that's bold and trendy.
Love What You Already Have
Instead of gutting the old school furnishings and appliances in her 1950s bathroom, HGTV fan oldhousemama embraced the vintage vibe by keeping the original clawfoot tub, pedestal sink and toilet. She kept the paint and tile crisp and gave the room a fun twist with nostalgic artwork and an embellished shower curtain. It can be much cheaper to embrace and polish what you have, instead of gutting your bathroom and replacing everything.
Freehand and Nearly Free
HGTV fan KarenSpirit totally transformed her good friend's powder room by hand-painting these stunning blooms. Everything else in the bathroom stayed as is. You don't have to update all of the features and decor in your bathroom to make a noticeable difference. In a small space like this, a bold statement can seem like a total bathroom makeover.
Add Tile Where It Counts
The addition of decorative tiles around a vessel sink punched up this otherwise beige and boring bathroom. HGTV fan joeyboti searched his local classifieds to score a deal on the glass tiles and did all of the work by hand. Taking the time to put in a little elbow grease and searching for bargains can keep your bathroom remodel budget in check.
Granite has a beautiful, natural appearance. It's incredibly durable and will resist chipping or scratching, and it's easy to clean. So it's no surprise granite is so popular for kitchen and bathroom countertops. Along with all of its great qualities come associated costs, however. But don't despair if you're on a budget—you'll have a range of granite types to explore, at various price levels.
Basic granite countertops will generally cost around $50 - $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, 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 - $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.
