Granite bathroom countertops


A bathroom is a place for you to refresh and relax. Whether you dream of a new, luxurious bathroom with a large counter and undermount sink or an average-sized bathroom remodel full of bathroom vanity base cabinet storage, your bathroom should be functional and comfortable.

Motor City Granite & Cabinets has an extensive selection of bathroom granite countertops to create the bathroom of your dreams.


Why Choose Granite Bathroom Countertops?

Granite vanity tops or countertops in your master bath are popular for those who want the beautiful look and luxurious feel of natural stone in their bathroom. Because the area to be covered is typically smaller in an average bathroom than a kitchen, having granite vanity tops or bathroom countertops installed is more cost-effective per square foot than marble bathroom countertops.

Granite countertop selections can also be pieced together as a low-cost alternative to large, natural stone slabs that may be more material than you need per linear foot. Choosing smaller pieces that offset or match each other can give you beautiful styling choices for your double-sink bathroom remodel or simple bathroom vanity with sink upgrade.

Care and Maintenance of Granite Countertops

Using granite for your vanity or bathroom countertop materials has several advantages, whether upgrading your existing contemporary bathroom or planning a brand new master bathroom. Although not as low-maintenance as a quartz counter, this moisture-resistant and durable material can be cleaned easily with mild soap and warm water.

Proper sealing and a high-quality granite cleaner for your granite countertops create a surface with higher moisture resistance and even more durability than marble or ceramic tile counters, so no more worries about water spots or scratches. This makes natural stone countertops like granite ideal for the high temperatures and humidity of most bathrooms.

Besides the incredible impact and heat resistance of granite countertops, this natural stone can last for years with proper maintenance and is also resistant to acids found in hair chemicals and many soaps.

Depending on how well you perform regular preventative maintenance, your granite bathroom countertop may also need additional sealing each year. There are numerous sealants available that are easy to apply. Look for a penetrating polymer sealant, which absorbs into the granite’s porous surface and increases moisture resistance.

The Appearance of Granite Countertops

With a wide range of colors and edge treatments, granite natural stone countertops can easily be matched to any existing decor. Choose from speckled patterns of bright whites, creamy grays, and rich, luxurious blacks for your bathroom granite countertops.

Granite can also be used for several design options in your bathroom, from countertops to shower tiles and granite floors. Matching or contrasting your granite countertops to your white cabinets or beach-style gray tile floor can also give your bath a spa-like, balanced appearance at a much lower cost per square foot than marble countertops can cost.


The Cost of Granite Bathroom Vanity Countertops

Granite counters are an attractive alternative to porcelain, tile, or other natural stone countertops in your bathroom. You can expect to pay between $40 and $60 per square foot for a granite slab. The cost per square foot often depends on the thickness of the granite slab (granite ranges in thickness from 2 cm to 5 cm), the edge style, and the design.

While this is slightly more expensive than many other bathroom countertop options, granite offers an excellent ROI due to its durability. Granite countertops can also increase the resale value of your home if you are planning to sell later; homes with granite counters in the bathroom or kitchen often recoup about 57% of the granite installation cost.
