Most people don’t think much about their bathrooms. After all, it’s just a place to get clean and then go on with your day. But the vanity top can be a great place to start if you’re thinking about remodelling your bathroom or just looking for something new and different. Vanity tops are the surface of choice for many homeowners because they can be made from many materials—from granite and marble to wood veneers and composites like Corian—and in any style or colour imaginable.
Types of vanity tops
You can choose from three types of vanity tops: granite, marble and solid surfaces. Granite is the most popular choice because it’s affordable and durable. Marble is more expensive than granite but has an elegant look that many homeowners prefer. Solid surfaces are acrylic and are easier to care for than granite since they’re nonporous and stain resistant.
Choosing the right material
To choose the right material for your vanity top, you must first consider the type of sink you will install. For example, choosing porcelain or ceramic sink will be easier to find a matching countertop than one made from wood or granite.
Concrete tops are also popular and have an industrial feel. They can be made into any shape and size imaginable—from simple squares to more elaborate forms like circles or triangles—and many come with pre-cut holes that allow for easy installation of plumbing fixtures like faucets and drains.
Another example is glass, which has gained popularity recently due to its unique look. When properly sealed and polished (or “tumbled”), glass has an almost liquid appearance that makes it incredibly eye-catching in any bathroom design style!
Choosing the right colour
Choosing the right colour for a vanity top can be a daunting task. After all, you want it to complement your bathroom, match your décor and accessories, and blend with the floor and walls and that’s just scratching the surface!
Maintenance, sealing and care
- Sealing is a process that uses a clear coating to protect the top and maintain its beauty. Sealing is recommended every year and will help prevent staining.
- Use mild soap or detergent on a soft cloth to clean your top. Use caution not to scratch or damage the finish of your vanity top. Do not use harsh chemicals on your vanity top as it can damage it permanently.
- Avoid any water contact with the sink surface for 24 hours after installation (or until you seal it). Do not leave water on your vanity top as it can cause damage to the finish over time. The same applies if you use harsh chemicals in cleaning products—do not leave them sitting in pools on open surfaces like this!
You can make an informed decision on which type of vanity top is right for you.
When choosing a vanity top, there are many factors to consider. In addition to ensuring that you’re getting the right material and colour for your space, it’s also important to consider maintenance and care.
You should also ask whether a professional installer of countertops or sinks in your area can use any sealants on their own products; this will help ensure that they’re installed properly with all necessary precautions taken into account by someone who knows what they’re doing!
A vanity top is a very important part of your bathroom. It can make or break the look and feel of your entire bathroom. That being said, there are many different types and styles to choose when it comes time for you to decide which one will work best for your home.
