|Laminate, solid surface and stone bathroom countertops are very similar to
kitchen countertops except they are smaller. With granite, the material is
also about 1/2 inch thinner. The bathroom sink is also smaller (even
when using a kitchen sink base cabinet the sink you would use is a smaller bathroom
size one). The biggest difference is that for
a bathroom you can purchase a cultured marble countertop with an integrated sink in many
different colors and sink styles that are not available for kitchens.
Unlike kitchen tops, bathroom tops come in many standard sizes that are available much quicker
and cheaper than comparable kitchen tops. In fact, you can find prices and purchase
many marble and granite bathroom countertops
right over the internet. Custom sizes, though, tend to be more than comparable kitchen tops.
Marble tops run in the $100 - $300 range for starndard size and color and one sink,
granite $300 to $400.
