Choosing between tile and granite bathroom countertops can be difficult. Both surfaces present unique benefits and drawbacks. Here are a few things to consider before you choose between tile and granite for your bathroom countertop.


With a tile countertop, you will be able to achieve a number of different looks. You can do a pattern or a diagonal lay. You can use a number of different sizes and colors. While it looks good, you will have to worry about maintaining the tile. Keep the grout lines clean and periodically seal them to keep them from staining.


Granite creates a beautiful, solid surface for a bathroom countertop. There will be no grout lines or anything of that sort about which to worry; therefore, cleaning will be easier. Seal granite periodically to achieve the best results. Granite is more expensive in most cases.
