What to Look for in Commercial Countertops for Bathrooms

Designing the bathrooms for your facility means picking out commercial countertops that will be durable and visually appealing. There are several different materials that can be used in commercial bathroom countertops, and the type you decide on will ultimately depend on how the bathrooms in your building will be used.

Bathrooms in apartment complexes and hotels will be used frequently and need to be able to hold up to guests’ and residents’ morning routines. Those located in restaurants, shopping malls, and other public places, will be used frequently by many different people. Consider how the bathrooms in your building will be used when you’re shopping for countertops.

Important Properties for Commercial Bathroom Countertops

Commercial countertops in bathrooms need to be able to withstand whatever comes their way. Here are some important properties to look for:

  • Visually appealing – Countertops that look good are important, regardless of how the bathroom is being used. Look for something that catches the eye and fits the design aesthetic of the whole building. Consider how the color, pattern, and texture of the countertop will work with the other elements in the room. 
  • Durable – Durability is important when it comes to bathroom countertops. They’ll be exposed to a lot of water and cleaning solutions, so they need to stand up to the challenge. You don’t want to choose something that will need to be replaced after a few years. 
  • Easy to clean – A bathroom is no place for a porous, difficult-to-clean countertop. Choose a material that is heat resistant, stain-resistant, and antimicrobial so it’s easy to clean and to keep looking good.

Best Materials for Commercial Countertops

  • Laminate countertops offer a huge range of styles and can be made to resemble wood, granite, and other materials. They are lightweight and inexpensive, so they are used frequently in residential bathrooms. They clean easily and look good, but they’re not the most durable.
  • Concrete is becoming more popular in bathrooms because it creates an industrial look. They are easy to stain and polish and are quite durable, but if they do get damaged there’s no repairing them.
  • Quartz countertops are easily the best all-around choice for commercial bathrooms. They are extremely durable and require very little maintenance. They resist heat and stains and hold up well when wet. It does come at a higher cost, but it’s well worth it in commercial bathrooms because bacteria, mold, and mildew can’t penetrate the surface.
