But how do you know when it’s time to replace your bathroom countertop? That’s a question many people ask, which is exactly why we wrote this article. There are a few telltale signs to look for when it comes to your bathroom countertop and its quality—when you start seeing them, it’s time to replace.

Is It Time to Replace Your Bathroom Countertop?

If you see any of these signs on your bathroom countertop, it might be the surface’s way of telling you that it’s past its prime.

Surface Damage

The bathroom is a highly frequented room. It gets used multiple times per day, most likely by more than one person in your household. That means the countertops experience all that wear and tear! If your current countertop isn’t made of the most durable material, it will definitely showcase that usage—and it’s time to replace to improve both its aesthetics and its function.


It’s not always easy to tell when you have mold, but it can be a very dangerous thing. The thing about mold is that it likes damp, dark, and cool places, and inside the bathroom cabinet and underneath the counter are perfect. Oftentimes, if you spot mold in these places or inside your vanity, it’s likely that it’s spread inside the countertop too. Once that happens, there’s really no suitable solution other than a full bathroom countertop replacement.

Selling Your Home

When a buyer comes to look at your home, they’re going to spend most of their time focused on the kitchen and the bathroom, so you want to make sure that those two rooms are as updated as possible—and most of the time, that means new countertops. A new countertop in the bathroom might be the deciding factor for a buyer debating between your house and someone else’s. It’s also a good way to ensure you get what you want, money-wise, for your home.

Go Big or Go Home

The thing about updating your bathroom is that, since these rooms tend to be on the small side, it works better if you update them all at once instead of updating one element and leaving the rest behind. For example, it isn’t a good idea to update your cabinets and leave your countertops old and dingy looking.


Trends for bathroom countertops come and go. Maybe you installed something ten years ago that no longer suits your preferences, and it’s time for a makeover. If that’s the case, then we are totally behind a full bathroom countertop replacement—even if the countertop is in good shape. But when you replace it, we recommend choosing something that never goes out of style, like quartz.
