Best Countertop For Kids Bathroom?

Melissa-KitchenFebruary 27, 2014

I am wondering what everyone would suggest as the best countertop for kids? I have three messy young boys who don't care one bit about spilling toothpaste everywhere so I am looking for something that will not stain. My husband prefers granite over quartz. I am open to your suggestions.

We'd be installing it on a white vanity.

Thanks in advance!

Don't know if there is a best countertop as they each have pros and cons.

Black granite in our master bath. It handles everything like toothpaste, makeup, oils and lotions. Wipes up easily.

White laminate in the "kids" bathroom. This counter handles everything. Has lived through purple hair dying. Always has toothpaste, make up, etc. on it. Cleans up easily. If needed a little bathroom cleaner with bleach in it removes any stains.

White granite in kitchen. I constantly find dried spilled coffee, dried honey, etc. on the counter. Wipes up easily.

The white laminate looks the messiest as you can see everything on it. The blackish granite is better at hiding stuff. The kitchen white diamond granite is the best for hiding everything.

Solid surface outperforms any other top in a bath and when the kids beat it up it is completely renewable.

Check out Dekton, a new option by Cosentino, the company that makes Silestone. Extremely scratch resistant, durable and stain proof.

Any concerns about curling irons or straighteners melting solid surface?
