Vanity countertops play an important role in the design and function of your bathroom. They must be durable, stain-resistant, easy to clean and appealing. There are several choices when it comes to bathroom countertops, but don’t let that overwhelm you.
To help you choose the perfect vanity top for your bathroom, here are three things to keep in mind.
When choosing a vanity countertop, it’s important to decide on how much of your bathroom remodeling budget will be allocated to it. The cost of a vanity countertop depends on its material, shape and size. Your contractor will help you find materials that meet your budget and requirements.
The size of your vanity countertop can greatly affect the outcome of your bathroom remodel. Vanity countertops are usually cut to fit, so you need to measure your vanity before ordering a countertop.
3. Sink and Faucet
You will need to consider the faucet and sink on your bathroom vanity as they will affect your remodeling costs. There is usually an area for the sink basin as well as predrilled holes for the faucets on most vanity countertops. For a unique sink shape, your vanity countertop will need to be cut differently.
Moreover, make sure that you communicate to your contractor the type and size of faucet you want. Different types of faucets will require different cuts, so decide on whether you’re going to use a single faucet, widespread faucet or center set faucet. You must also determine whether you will add vanity sides and backsplashes with your vanity countertop. You should install these after you install your vanity countertop.
