In days gone by, the bathroom sink was just that, a simple wall-mounted porcelain pedestal with a place for your bar of soap. The Victorian era spawned its evolution into more luxurious, furniture-like fixtures, offering plenty of room for ladies to spread out their beauty paraphernalia and relax. Today’s busy family bathrooms aren’t nearly as romantic, but the main purpose remains. It’s not just a spot to wash hands and brush teeth, it’s a special and elegant space to get ready for the day ahead.
The evolution of the bathroom is still taking place! Homeowners are discovering the versatility of quartz counters, which are the perfect intersection of practical utility and elegant beauty. Let’s explore four examples of how a quartz countertop can help us make the most of this important space.

Simplicity is on-trend, and quartz is one of the best options to complement modern minimalism. Bayshore Sand Quartz is light beige with subtle specks in shades of brown, possibly the most neutral of all neutrals. However, although the quartz countertop is most often used in contemporary design, it can be reimagined to suit any style. Since quartz is incredibly durable and long-lasting, it pays to select a countertop that can easily fit with traditional, rustic, and more. It’s all about the accessories!

Quartz is versatile — it can be a lovely sleek neutral surface or a remarkable mimic of natural stone. If you like granite, you’re going to fall in love with Alpine Quartz, a blend of gray shades with translucent crystal inclusions. Though granite is popular, it has drawbacks as well. A quartz countertop is totally nonporous with no need for regular sealing. They also resist staining and damage from chemicals and cosmetics, a very important quality for the bathroom vanity.

Quartz is customizable. Along with the polished gloss that has always been popular, you can also choose concrete finishes that are soft matte, not reflective. While this brushed surface treatment tends to make natural stone countertops less water-resistant, that’s not so with a quartz countertop; it always retains its tough, easy-care quality, resisting bacteria and mildew as well. You can add even more character by requesting custom countertop edges.
