Denver Bathroom Countertop Design Options

May 6, 2020

Every morning you wake up, where’s the first place you go? For many it’s the bathroom, so having a warm and inviting feel to where you kick off the day can help get you out the door in a great mood. Picture waking up and heading into the bathroom only to be disappointed with the lack of counter space limiting your options for getting ready. Now your frustrated and find yourself disappointed with the amount of countertop space inside your bathroom. 

If this is the case or maybe you happen to lack cabinet storage and feel limited by your sink, then now is the time to consider a bathroom remodel. Whether you’re changing up an existing space or creating something entirely new, having a refreshed area that receives daily use can be a real treat to a homeowner, in addition to potentially increasing your own property value. Consider these factors to aid in making a countertop change today. 


Space is one of the most important factors to consider when making a change and often the reason for it. While there are general space saving ideas for small bathrooms, remember that you will be limited by the current wall positioning unless you are taking things a step further. For most, working within the confines of the current room is enough and finding more opportunities for useful space is the key.

Countertops either serve as a built-in unit above cabinets or a vanity so consider if there is room to either side for utilizing more space. If so, this extension could provide more than an ample amount of room to keep you from being frustrated. Also, if the existing countertops range close to the toilet, then consider adding additional space above the back of the tank. This provides a shelving type area but low enough to still be considered a countertop while increasing functional space for storage without cluttering around the sink.

Sink Type

Bathroom basin types can either help or hinder your current available countertop space. Depending on the size of the room, choosing a variety that optimizes space can be beneficial. If you currently have a drop-in style sink with a sizeable lip, then opting for a table-top or undermount may increase your countertop space considerably.


Selecting warm colors, particularly white, can make any bathroom look and feel bigger. Eliminating the current dark colored laminate countertop for a nice piece of white granite can make the room feel bigger, even if you don’t change a single inch of the size. These adjustments, combined with the preceding factors will have you feeling better and starting days off on the right foot in no time.
