Montage: 13 Bathrooms With Tiled Vanity Countertops

I still haven’t figured out what to do about the pink Formica countertop on the vanity in Florida. Buying a piece of stone is out—definitely no budget for that. And really, it’s a basic, white tiled bathroom, so it doesn’t call for a slab of luxurious stone anyway. There’s no way I am paying for an updated lamintate countertop. Blech. So I’ve been looking at tiled vanity countertops.

I think tiling the vanity countertop is the way to go. I’ve come across a number of how-to articles for installing tile over laminate;  how-to tile is a rather popular DIY project. We also need to swap out the light fixture above the mirror. The vanity lighting fixture that’s there is now  more appropriate for a C-lister’s dressing room. Maybe we can tuck some LED strip lights behind molding and add a more contemporary light fixture. This industrial-style bathroom light bar could also be an interesting look.

Perhaps my husband could get to work on some simple changes over winter break when we’re there. After all, he has all sorts of tools—step ladder, pliers, wrenches, and plenty of stuff I can’t even name. It’s nice that he’s handy : )

It’s hard to find examples of cute bathroom vanity countertops with tiles, I’m guessing because it’s a low budget solution and gorgeous, photographed homes showcase more upscale materials. I did find 13 bathrooms with tiled vanity countertops that are quite nice. I should go for it, right?
