6 Reasons Your Bathroom May Need New Countertops

by Elias Deukmajian | Bathroom Remodel

One of the most visible surfaces in your bathroom is the countertop, meaning it has a huge impact on the appearance of the room — not to mention its usability! Whether you’re considering a full bathroom remodel or just sprucing up the space, replacing the bathroom’s countertops can make a big difference. Below are 5 reasons you may want to consider new countertops for your bathroom!

Damaged Surfaces

Because of the amount of use the bathroom countertop sees, it’s not unusual for the surface of the countertop to sustain some damage over the years, especially if the surface is made of a less durable material. Wood can sustain water damage, laminate can chip, fade, or bubble, and tile can chip or start losing grout. If your countertop is damaged, it’s definitely time to consider a replacement.


Unfortunately, with all the damp and warmth a bathroom sees, even the most well-ventilated bathroom can become a haven for mold. This is especially true if you’ve had plumbing problems or a leaky sink — the water dripping down into the vanity can cause major mold issues. If you find mold in the vanity, chances are there’s some up under the countertop as well. Replacing the entire countertop and vanity is the best way to protect the health of yourself and your family from the dangers of mold.

Time to Sell!

If you think back to when you bought your house, you may remember that two of the things every home buyer looks closely at is the kitchen and bathroom. With that in mind, when it’s time for you to sell, it may also be time to look into a few changes! A nice new bathroom counter can change the whole look of your bathroom, possibly helping your house sell faster and even potentially garnering you a higher price. It also shows potential buyers that you’ve cared for and invested in your home, which is always reassuring!

Cabinet Makeovers

Maybe your focus isn’t on your countertops — maybe it’s on your bathroom cabinets. Whether you’re wanting to replace your bathroom’s cabinets for aesthetic reasons, because of water damage, or other types of damage (maybe a pet chewed on the corner, or the cabinet door has too much damage to fix), replacing your cabinet means it’s also time to replace your bathroom countertops.

If you’re just painting or staining your cabinets, it’s less necessary to replace the countertops, but it’s still definitely a great option! After all, if you’re changing the color of the cabinets, why not add some new countertops in a complementary style?

Time to Upgrade

Even if your bathroom countertops are still in good shape, sometimes it’s just time to let them go. No one likes an old, outdated bathroom, and changing you countertops is a great way to make a big change in appearance quickly! Whether it’s part of a larger overhaul to bring your bathroom into the modern age or just a small step in the right direction, a countertop change is a great way to update your bathroom with a more modern look.

Need More Space

Sometimes the bathroom layout you have just isn’t the one you need. Maybe you have more makeup than can currently fit comfortably on your vanity, or perhaps the size of your current countertops just doesn’t accommodate your love of fresh flower arrangements and scented candles. On the other hand, maybe your counters are a little too robust, taking up room you’d rather dedicate to open floor space. Whatever the case, with a bathroom countertop makeover you can achieve the right balance in size for your needs.
