The world isn’t about to slow down just because you need it to. It’s up to you to create clean spaces where you can relax and forget the day. Bathrooms have always been ideal sanctuaries, but without the right materials or thoughtful design, bath time can tend to be just bleh. Too much maintenance, grime or a depressing color scheme can spoil what should be a relaxing start and end to your day.

Here are five steps you can take to ensure your countertops lend to the soothing ambiance of your lavatorial tranquility:

1. Choose the right material.

The clear winner for the best bathroom countertop is quartz. Its durability makes it ideal for a heavy-use area like a bathroom, while its cleanup involves just a damp, soapy cloth and a few seconds of wiping.

Timeless and stylish color options like 1141 Pure White and 5131 Calacatta Nuvo from Caesarstone make for a calming and clean atmosphere.

2. Go beyond bathroom countertops.

Quartz bathroom countertops are a strong starting point for upgrading your bathroom, but the super durable material also shines in other roles. Quartz is a nonporous surface making it completely resistant to bacteria buildup and perfect for floors, showers and walls.

Caesarstone seamless 13mm quartz slabs eliminate the need for grout, and thus, any need for long-term maintenance. Their standout durability and resistance to household cleaners make them ideally suited for vertical settings like shower surrounds.

3. Determine if a full renovation or transformation is right for you.

Sometimes, a complete renovation doesn’t fit your budget or just isn’t needed. For these cases, Transform by Caesarstone can create a luxurious space in a few hours — and at a lower price point. Custom quartz overlays are professionally installed, eliminating the time and budget investment of a total tear down, breathing new life into both the bathroom and the wallet.

4. Small flourishes can have significant impacts.

Contrasted with 1141 Pure White or 5031 Statuario Maximus, a splash of healthy green from a potted or artificial plant can take both colors to the next level and create a zen focal point in your personal haven. To keep countertop space clear, consider hanging a plant between vanities or adding a small shelf.

5. Don’t forget the simple power of lighting.

A spa-like atmosphere starts with a clean, solid surface beneath your feet and ends with the soft, soothing light surrounding you. Simple, diffused lighting lets the comforting colors of Caesarstone do the heavy lifting, truly transforming restrooms into refuges.
