Countertops: A surface in your bathroom that gets more use than you may realize. If you’re planning a bathroom renovation, you don’t want to overlook this area. There are many colour and profile options for your vanity top, but there are also a few different materials to choose from. You want to make sure you choose the countertop material that is the right fit for your family. Factors to take into consideration when choosing your vanity top include style, colour, who is using the space (maintenance requirements), and budget.
