Bathroom Vanity Countertops are Both Functional and Beautiful

Bath vanity countertops are some of the most important facets of your bathroom vanity, but also some of the most overlooked. Vanity countertops are most often available in wood, marble (or some other kind of stone), and Corian.

It's an unfortunate truth that bathroom vanity countertops are all-too often overlooked. They just so happen to be some of the most important aspects of the entire bathroom. They are remarkably useful, and yet they are such simple features on your vanity. They provide a resting surface for all of your toiletries and hygiene supplies, and the right countertop can enhance the visual appeal of a room. They facilitate your bathroom chores and generally make your life more convenient. They even keep the rest of your vanity cabinet safe from common water damage. You can transform your bathroom into a beautiful showcase of health and hygiene with wood, marble, and Corian polymer.

Wood countertops and plastic laminates in a wood design give your bathroom a definite charm and rustic flavor that is sure to impress. Wood has the added benefit of being a highly affordable countertop material that won't hurt your savings. Unfortunately, a wood countertop is very susceptible to normal water damage like warping and decay. For this reason, if you really want to go with a wood countertop, you should have it thoroughly sealed in a laminate sheath to keep both direct and ambient moisture out. These plastic laminates are available in a significantly wide variety of diverse styles, designs, colors, themes, and lusters and glosses. Plastic laminated bath vanity countertops are generally equipped with a traditional recessed self rimming sink; sometimes, they may accomodate more luxurious and less common vessel sinks. Because of the plastic laminate, these countertops are very vulnerable to heat and abrasions. Keep especially hot objects from the countertop, and clean it occasionally with a diluted cleanser and non-abrasive pads; do not use scouring pads or bristle brushes. With proper care, a good laminated vanity countertop will last you a lifetime.

Marble double bathroom vanity countertops tend to cost a good amount more than wood or plastic laminate countertops, but marble is a much stronger and more durable material than either and marble will give your bathroom an elegant, refined atmosphere that will isntantly enhance the existing sophistication of the room itself. Cultured marble, cultured granite, and cultured onyx are all extremely resistant to stains. They are strong against the elements, such as water and sun damage, and they are rugged and tough to harm. They are also easy to repair and replace, despite their weight. If you sand and polish (or wax) the surface of your marble countertop once in a while, say annually, you will certainly keep your countertop looking beautiful and good as new. Cracking is a very common concern among marble vanity countertop owners, but this concern is baseless if you buy cultured stone or marble; cultured materials are definitely worth the slightly more expensive cost.

Corian, a synthetic acrylic polymer blend developed by DuPont, is probably the most expensive countertop material available. Additionally, it is by far the strongest, most enduring material. It is non-porous, water resistant, stain resistant, mildew resistant, and completely hypoallergenic. Corian polymer comes in a variety of stylish finishes, such as semi-gloss, matte, or a glistening gloss surface. Corian countertops are easily cleaned with a normal abrasive cleanser and a normal cleaning pad; no special solutions are necessary. Simply maintaining your Corian polymer countertop, by cleaning it regularly and keeping hot items away from itArticle Submission, will ensure that your countertop lasts you years and years of enjoyment.
