When it comes to your bathroom vanity top you have several options. Should you keep the old laminate top, maybe upgrade to tiles? Or better yet, get a solid slab stone vanity top! When it comes to the battle of solid stone vs tile vanity tops there is no clear winner. both have their upsides and downsides. Read below to see some of the main arguments for each side…
Slab Granite Vanity Countertops
Using a solid slab for your bathroom vanity top has tons of upsides. It is visually appealing. The lack of grout lines or old laminate is always a huge plus in the bathroom. It is much more sanitary. Grout is a great place for germs to thrive and is very difficult to keep looking clean. A solid slab eliminates the grout lines, and thus eliminates the germs. Solid slabs can also be paired with undermount sinks, which are both visually appealing and more sanitary due to the removal of the sink lip that collects dirt and germs as well.
Tile Vanity Countertops
Tile vanity tops have been done millions of times. They are very cost effective, which is their main draw. A few downsides include the numerous grout lines, which as mentioned above are very difficult to keep clean; and lets face it… Grout lines are ugly! One benefit is if you somehow damage your vanity top you will only need to replace one tile instead of the entire top. Another downside to tile vanity tops is that it is very difficult to use an undermount sink with them.
