Do you baby your vanity wood countertops?
Those of you with wood countertops in your bathrooms, do you wipe off every water spot as soon as you finish using your sink? If not, how well has your wood countertop held up with respect to deterioration of the finish?
I already have wood countertops in a powder room and the guest bath, and I obsessively wipe off the countertop after I wash my hands. (And like a Singapore Airlines flight attendant, I'll also go into the bathroom after a guest has used it and wipe up after him or her.)
Now it looks like I'll be getting wood countertops (actually oak-veneered MEDEX) for my master bathroom because the Corian color I'd originally picked out doesn't work with the undertone of my stone tile (but the Corian is already in place as my shower curb so I don't want to introduce yet another color of granite, quartz, or other material). I'm not too keen on having yet more wood countertops to obsessively maintain, so I'm now wondering if I can relax a little bit around them and allow the water droplets to just air-dry.
Also, do you think it will hurt resale to have so many bathrooms with wood countertops? There is another full bath with a marble countertop and a second half bath with a china pedestal sink.
