5 Cool Granite Countertop Ideas for Your Bathroom

Granite countertops can add luxury to your bathroom as well as provide practical surfaces. Here are some cool ideas to enhance your bathroom with countertops made of granite.

  • A step countertop design to allow for items to be placed on a raised platform can free up the area directly around the sink, and provide a unique display for ease of access.
  • Countertops cut with curved corners add elegance and can soften the look that harsh, geometric angles can cause.
  • Granite is available in various shades. Choosing a lighter color variation can brighten and even give the illusion of openness to small bathrooms, while darker colors can add richness.
  • Paring your granite countertop with complementary granite tiling of a customized shower provides a long lasting luxurious environment, requiring no more maintenance than any well cared for bathroom design.
  • Designing your granite countertop to accommodate a raised basin sink as opposed to the traditional inset can offer extra space for practical purposes while also showcasing the beauty of the countertops.

Granite is the most durable substance for countertop construction. It is resistant to heat damage from curling irons accidentally left on, unlikely to stain due to spilled hygiene products such as perfume oils and aftershave, and impervious to chipping or scratching due to accidental dropping of items such as curling irons or electric shavers.

There are virtually no limits to how it can be cut for a customized look that is guaranteed to be unique for your bathroom. The natural variations of color textures in granite make every countertop a one of a kind piece work of art that is more than simply utilitarian. Why not have the best of both beauty and practicality?

How to Design Luxury Bathroom Countertops

Unlike the kitchen where countertops are used as cutting boards and cooking prep space, bathroom countertops can be more about aesthetics and luxurious design. However, there is a way to enhance the luxurious feel of your bathroom and ensure its longevity.

When deciding what material to use arguably one of the finest is granite for its natural long lasting, stain-resistant beauty. Marble and glass can also look great, but are not nearly as durable. Though durability might not be at the top of the concerns list with bathroom countertops consider the effect of accidentally leaving a curling iron on. Both marble and glass can discolor under excessive heat exposure.

Choosing the design of your countertops will depend upon the kind of sink, whether it is an inset or raised design, the countertops will need to be cut with that in mind. Countertops that extend to either side of the sink for added space is a lovely feature for laying out hygiene products when dressing for work or evenings. Who says you don’t need workspace in the bathroom? Whether it’s a gentleman’s shaving utensils or a lady’s makeup the ability to attend to these things without having items constantly falling into the sink due to too little workspace is a much appreciated bonus.

When it comes to the look, nothing has a richer appearance than natural stone, especially with its subtle variations and tones. There is a color texture that can match and enhance the look of any bathroom theme, whether you are looking for a traditional color scheme or something more exotic. Few materials offer the richness and durability of granite, adding another layer of luxury to any bathroom.
