Bathroom Countertop Ideas – An Approach to Use with Your Customers

Posted on 05 February 2013 by cradmin

By Express Countertops

A good approach to take with customers with regards to bathroom countertops is as follows:

Are you looking for bathroom countertop ideas to help your room stand out and truly your own style?

With a wide range of options available for countertop material, accessories, and colors, you have the versatility to choose a design that is unique to your home.

But how can you make sure you choose the right countertop for your home?


Consider Unique Materials and Surfaces

One of the great things about bathroom counters is that you have options for materials that you simply can’t use in a kitchen countertop.

Think about surfaces like glass and cultured marble: These wouldn’t work in a kitchen because they are easily damaged by hot pans, sharp knives and day-to-day use. This isn’t an issue with a bathroom, so you can incorporate these unique surface materials for countertops that can truly set the mood.


Speaking of Mood…

The kind of mood and ambience that a room creates is important no matter what that room’s purpose. A kitchen should have a different feel from a bedroom, which should have a unique feel from the living room and basement. Things are no different for the bathroom.

Think about whether you want to encourage relaxation or invigoration with the bathroom and plan its design around that.

In addition, you can go for a classic look or a modern look, depending on your personal tastes.

Think about adding features like fixtures made from natural stone or tiles made from bright colors and you can create a look that people will appreciated when they walk in, even if it’s on a subconscious level.

When it comes to your bathroom counters, you can have them be the centerpiece of the room’s design rather than another fixture that simply blends in with everything.


Making the Most of the Space

Even if you have a small bathroom, you don’t need to give up on unique bathroom countertop ideas. There are still a number of things you can do to make the room as personalized as possible; you just need to be more creative.

Some of the things you can do in this instance include:

  • Installing a Floating Vanity – This means having a vanity that doesn’t touch the floor, and this will give you some space underneath for whatever you might need it for.
  • Shelving to Match Your Counters – Storage space is extremely important in a bathroom, and even more so in a small one. Have enough shelves to keep all your things, and make sure they are made from a material that matches your counters.
  • Consider Light Colors – Light colors not only create a relaxing mood, but have been known to create the illusion of more space as well. Consider this option when designing your bathroom and you’ll have a more welcoming room because of it.


Moving on from There

Knowing what kind of material, color and mood you want for your home’s bathroom are a start, but these bathroom countertop ideas are only the foundation.

Play around with different ideas, and take advantage of your professional countertop fabricators and installers expertise. They may bring up new features or suggestions you never even considered.

But most of all—HAVE FUN! The bathroom countertop is your chance to truly let the creative juices flow and pick a design that can be more beautiful than functional.
