bathroom countertop materials

Posted by blingymo (My Page) on

I am redoing my master bathroom. I have a 6.5' counter with sink that I will be replacing. I would like to put in a larger sink, with a max of 37-38" to work with for sink installation, due to a vanity seat area. The plan is to put two faucets, which I know is tight, but it the best I can do on space. I have considered granite (I'm in love with Cosmos) with an undermount sink (found a 36" one at Wetstyle, but it probably costs a mint - haven't gotten price on that yet). I am also looking at Staron solid surface counter (in Radiance - as you can see from my name, I like sparkle!) and wondering if I can have an integrated sink in the appropriate size. I have never done any remodeling, so all these choices and decisions are new to me. And I have yet to check out prices on any of these options. What do you think is my best choice of countertop material and way to get a larger sink?

RE: bathroom countertop materials

In our bath we went with corian solid surface because I like the softer feel of the material and it's warmer than stone. I also wanted the one piece integrated rims or undermount gaps or anything....just one smooth shape. We did the corian for the seat in the shower as well...much warmer to sit on than stone.
