Should My Bathroom Countertops and Kitchen Countertops Be the Same Material?

If you are remodeling, designing a new home, or purchasing a fixer-upper, then you know that the decisions needing to be made are endless. This is especially true when it come to choosing designs for the kitchen and bath. So many factors go into it, such as flooring, tile, colors of paint, appliances, cabinetry, different finishes, and countertop styles. A question that may occur is "should my bathroom and kitchen countertops match?"

There is not an absolute 'yes' on why the kitchen and bathroom need to match. Some homeowners prefer a cohesive look between the two spaces, but it is totally up to your personal preference. However, there are some important questions to consider when deciding upon different countertop styles that are going to meet your needs for the two areas of your home.

How Close in Proximity Are the Bathroom and Kitchen?

If the bathroom being redone is very close to the kitchen, you may consider matching or going with something very similar to provide more flow from space to space. Of course, if you are able to see into the bathroom from the kitchen, they should likely match. However, if the bathroom is in a different area of the home or perhaps a different floor, it may not be needed as much to have the countertops match.

Do You Prefer Complementary Over Identical?

If you do not want the kitchen and bathroom to be identical, there are still ways to tie the two rooms together with certain design elements. Working with a company that offers a wide selection of countertop styles such as Supreme Stone gives you tons of room to find two countertop options that complement each other well. That way, you can use the two for each space without them being totally identical.

What Is The Difference Between Bathroom & Kitchen Countertops?

One of the most noticeable differences between the two is the size. The installation is very similar, but the size difference may have a different look to it. The kitchen counter is going to be much larger than the bathroom counter.

Another notable difference, is the uses for the two and the potential wear and tear to each. The kitchen countertops are going to have hot foods and plates set on them each day, and possibly things spilled on them. The bathroom may have strain from toothpaste, mouthwash, soaps, and different cleaning products. Quartz or granite may be the perfect option for both, as they are easy to clean and easy to maintain.

Benefits of Granite Countertops & Quartz Countertops

Whether or not you decide to match the kitchen and bath countertops, at Supreme Stone we highly recommend granite or quartz countertops for both of the spaces for a few different reasons:


Granite and quartz are known for their strength and durability. They are great options for homes that enjoy hosting and are always occupied, as they are scratch resistant and have a high resistance to heat. Though they are resistant to heat, it is still recommended to utilize some sort of trivet or hot pad. They are both available in a wide range of colors and patterns, making it easy to find something that matches your style.

Low-maintenance and Long Lasting

These options are low maintenance due to their durability; they do not require a lot of upkeep. They are both non-porous surfaces meaning they do not absorb liquids or oils like some other options do. They are both able to withstand normal wear and tear, without presenting signs of damage.

Stain and Bacteria Resistant

Since they are non-porous, it is more difficult for bacteria and stains to build up. They are easily cleaned with just some soap and water! Granite and quartz are great options for a busy household.

Are You Enjoying Yourself?

Hopefully, the answer to this question is an exciting yes! As much as designing your home can be stressful with all the decisions that need to be made, it is meant to be fun and a way to express your style throughout your home.

If you are feeling pressure to make your kitchen and bath designs look a certain way or go with a certain aesthetic, then you may need to take a step back and think about what you really want. You are not obligated to design your home in any certain way! At the end of the day, it is yours and not anyone else's.

Now more than ever, homeowners, designers, and builders are making beautiful homes that often times follow no traditional rules. So, whether or not you want them to match is entirely up to you. As long as the spaces work for you and your family, that is all that matters.
