40 Affordable Bathroom Countertops Ideas for a Budget-Friendly Refresh

There are a few choices which work in bathrooms, but aren’t a good idea for a kitchen. These are cultured marble (very inexpensive, but usually pre-made to standard sizes and may not fit your circumstance); onyx (very pretty); and marble. Marble looks elegant, is functional, and comes in a wide range of colors.

These materials would not stand up to the level of use associated with a kitchen, but hold up well in bathrooms. Onyx is translucent, so light coming from one side will make it appear to glow on the other side. This could work well as a window sill or shelf near a window where it will get the light. Another way to use the translucent quality of onyx is to create a small box with a night light in it.

Most experts will tell you NOT to put wood in your bathroom since moisture can damage it. Well, if you really want wood in your bathroom, keep in mind that there are exceptions to every rule. Remember, in the 1800s they used to make boats out of wood.

You just need to know which wood to use. Teak, Rosewood and Brazilian Epi are extremely dense and oily (and expensive) woods that will hold up just fine. Even some of the harder of the common woods (like Oak and hard Maple) will work if you treat them with a coat of marine varnish.
