3 Hot Countertop Choices for Floating Vanities

A floating vanity can be the perfect aspect of a bathroom to tie the whole remodel together. A floating vanity is anchored to the wall and doesn’t extend all the way to the floor, giving the illusion that it’s floating. It provides a very clean and modern look—that is, if you choose the right countertop material to style it with.

Two important aspects of your floating vanity are its style and color. As long as these two facets are cohesive with the rest of your bathroom, then your design is good to go.

It’s not quite as easy as it might seem to get this correct, though. Choosing a seamless design is a science, which is why Marble Granite World is here to help. It takes time, patience, and a keen eye to figure out what works best for your bathroom remodel and what countertop material will make your floating vanity stand out without making it an eyesore.

Once you get a feel for the vision of your dream bathroom, finding pieces that bring that vision together won’t be difficult. This article is here to detail the three hottest countertop choices for floating vanities—granite, quartz, and marble—the benefits of each stone, and how they can add value to your bathroom remodel.


For many years, granite has been the number one choice for our customers choosing to remodel their bathrooms. It’s an especially popular choice for floating vanities, being as granite gives the room a modern feel and a sleek look.

Granite is a natural stone. Natural stone is alluring not only because of how long it lasts, but because of its beauty and versatility. It’s available in a wide array of colors, patterns, and styles, meaning that it will undoubtedly fit any color scheme or theme you have in mind for your bathroom remodel.

Regarding its durability, it’s resistant to heat, liquid, and humidity. Because of these factors, it’s a great choice for floating vanity tops, where hot hair-styling tools and wet washcloths often find a home.

Every slab of granite is unique. If you find a pattern that you love at MGW, it’s a good idea to snag it—because you’ll never find the same one again!

There are many more positive aspects to granite than there are negatives. You pay for the quality of material that you get—if your granite vanity countertop is taken care of correctly and regularly resealed, it will last forever. It will beautify your bathroom and add resale value to your home should you decide to sell in the future.

Because granite is a very heavy material, it’s a wise choice to have our professionals at MGW install it for you. We know how to handle it properly, and we’ll get the job done in an afternoon.


Quartz is an engineered stone, meaning that it’s made from ground-up particles of stone that are bound together with resin. It is a naturally occurring material in the earth (and very abundant, at that), and natural quartz is used in quartz countertops. In fact, natural quartz makes up about 95 percent of the material. But since there are plastic resin particles added, it must be counted as an engineered stone.

Much like granite, quartz is very durable. It’s waterproof, it doesn’t require resealing, and it’s resistant to stains and bacteria, making it the perfect countertop choice for your floating vanity in the high-traffic bathroom.

The style associated with quartz is clean and contemporary, making it a popular choice with modern bathrooms. There are many colors and patterns to choose from.

Much like granite, with quartz you pay for the quality of countertop that you receive. It’s a very durable, beautiful stone that can increase the value of any home.


Marble is a high-quality type of limestone. It comes in a variety of colors and patterns—the most popular being white with gray veining or black with white veining. Although these are the two most commonly chosen, there are many other variants as well.

Different quarries provide different amounts of minerals, which means that no two quarries produce identical marble. Your marble countertop on your floating vanity will be unlike any other sample in the world.

Marble is known for being elegant and sophisticated, bringing an air of classiness to any bathroom via the floating vanity.

It’s a high-end stone, but its longevity and gorgeous looks are worth the price.
