  Typical costs:
  • Prefabricated stock countertops designed to fit a specific bathroom vanity sold at home improvement and hardware stores start at $20-$150 for smaller tops made with inexpensive composite materials like cultured marble (a blend of fiberglass resin and crushed limestone), and can cost $200-$500 or more depending on size and the number of sinks. For example, the Marbelite Newport Cultured Marble Vanity Top is 22" deep with a single 14"x17" basin bowl and comes in lengths from 22"-124"; a white 37" model sells for about $75 at Home Depot[1] . Lowe's charges about $410 for the two-sink American Standard 73"Wx22"D White Cultured Marble Vanity Top[2] .
  • Prefabricated bathroom vanity tops in natural stone, ceramic or similar materials can cost $200-$1,000 or more, depending on size, materials and whether there are holes for one sink or two. (The sink is sometimes included.) For example, the single-sink Xylem 30" Stone Vanity Top with Integrated Bowl SVT300TR[3] in beige travertine costs $670-$795.
  • High-end countertops designed to fit specific high-status vanity cabinets can cost $1,000-$8,000 or more. For example, the single-sink Kohler natural lavastone countertop with plumbing cut-out that's designed to fit Kohler's Purist line of bathroom vanities costs $6,000 (sink not included).
  • The average cost for semi-custom or custom countertops is $65 a square foot, including installation, according to UniqueVanities.com[4] , or $500-$1,000 for a master bath with 9-15 square feet of countertop. Solid surface countertops (like Corian[5] ) cost $40-$60 a square foot (installation included) or $400-$1,000 for 9-15 square feet in a master bathroom. Slab granite countertops can cost $60-$100 per square feet, installed, or $600-$1,500 for a master bathroom. Tile countertops vary from $1-$30 a square foot for glazed ceramic tiles to $30-$225 a square foot for handcrafted, hand-painted artisanal tiles, with professional installation adding $35-$40 a square foot, bringing total costs for a master bathroom to $350-$1,100 for ceramic tiles and $550-$4,000 for artisanal tiles.

What should be included:
  • Installing a prefabricated vanity top is typically fairly straightforward, although it does require some basic plumbing skills. Installing a custom countertop requires more skill and may not be a good do-it-yourself project for the average homeowner. DoItYourself.com provides installation instructions[6] .
  • Professional installation of a countertop should include a professional pre-installation measurement, preparation of the counters (including leveling and shimming), installation of the countertop, cleanup, and final inspection.
Additional costs:
  • Installation of a prefabricated vanity top is typically not included in its purchase price. Installation of just the countertop by a handyman or contractor starts at $50-$200, depending on size and complexity, and can cost up to $1,000-$2,000 or more for large, high-end countertops designed to fit a specific designer vanity Typically, installing a vanity countertop is included as part of the cost of installing a bathroom vanity.
Shopping for bathroom countertops:
  • Bathroom countertops need to be resistant to moisture, including steam. Consumer Reports compares[7] the different types of bathroom countertops and provides a buying guide[8] .
