If your looking to purchase a new bathroom countertop consider going with Consumer Reports recommended option: laminate. Laminate can is on the lower end price range but ranks high in durability. Another great cost effective choice is granite, a stone slab can be purchased at stone yards for cheap and range between $10-$40 a square foot depending on the size. Another thing to take into consideration is the thickness, going with a thinner countertop will also save you money, the fancier the finish the more money it will cost.
