Of all the surfaces in our homes, bathroom countertops are often exposed to the most everyday wear and tear. We leave our wet toiletries on top of them. We let our toothpaste drip on their surfaces. We shave our faces above and around (and often accidentally on) them.

It is, therefore, important that we take care in the construction and design of our bathroom countertops. It is vital that bathroom countertops be composed of a durable material that will stand up to the rigors of everyday use. It is important to be able to hide marks and stains. It is also a bonus to have a material that will look polished, dignified and sparkling once it has been cleaned.

Choices in Bathroom Countertops

Bathroom countertops must frequently fit into odd shapes and spaces. Perhaps a bathroom needs room for two sinks and a hefty vanity. It may be necessary or desirable to design a countertop that will accommodate a wide variety of features and complement an array of preexisting furniture and fixtures.

In this case, it might be worth the extra bit of expenditure for a concrete bathroom countertop. Concrete gives the flexibility to create some interesting and beautiful shapes in bathroom countertops. One need not worry about stains and water damage either; the concrete is most always protected by a sealant that will protect the material from staining and make it easier to clean.
