A Variety Of
& Solid Surface
You just picked out your custom bathroom cabinets, and now the question is: what do I use for vanity countertops? Many homeowners, when matching bathroom cabinets to their kitchen design, may elect to use the same countertop material as they do in the kitchen. Other homeowners may decide to go with a completely new look for their bathroom design. When you are choosing your countertops for the bath, Norfolk recommends using either granite, quartz, or solid surface materials. Keep in mind that you can incorporate these materials into your vanity countertops, tub decking/surrounds, and even your tub or shower walls!
Below is a list of things to consider when trying to decide on your bathroom vanity countertops:
Granite is 100% organic, made by Mother Nature. Granite is quarried from the earth in large blocks, then cut into slabs, polished on one side & sent to the fabricator. Norfolk Kitchen & Bath partners with these fabricators to provide you with a wide array of color options for your vanity countertops. The price of granite often depends on your choice of color, its popularity and how easy that color is to mine from the earth.
While some quartz countertops are made of true quarried stone, many of the quartz countertops you see today are an engineered material composed of 93% quartz and 7% polymer resins, resulting in a super-hard, low-maintenance, stone countertop that is much more consistent in its design than natural stone. Norfolk Kitchen & Bath has partnered with the top manufacturers of the engineered quartz products to give you many options for your quartz vanity countertops.
Solid surface is a manufactured material composed typically of acrylic and/or polyester resins and pigments, as opposed to natural stone particles in granite & quartz. Solid surface is also non-porous, which promotes a cleaner, bacteria-free bathroom. Norfolk Kitchen & Bath has its own countertop shop which is certified to fabricate all types of solid surface products for your bathroom.
