The disadvantage of laminate cabinetry and countertops is that they are layered. Over a brief time of just a few years, laminates can and most likely will de‐laminate (peel apart). As the humidity levels and temperature rise and fall through the cycle of bathing and showering, laminated wood is constantly expanding and contracting. These frequent changes greatly accelerates the separation of the laminate from the compress board subsurface which it is glued. Instead of getting 10 to 15 years or more of a perfect looking bathroom, a homeowner will likely experience warping and a bubbling up of the laminated vanity top or laminated vanity itself, leading to chips and cracks.
Remodeling a bathroom is the perfect time to not just replace the existing vanity top with the same inferior laminate material, but upgrade to much more durable and beautiful natural materials such as granite, soapstone, or limestone. Marble and onyx are also favorites of custom builders and homeowners. Natural stone countertops and even flooring can create a warm and serene atmosphere to an antiseptically efficient environment depending upon the color and stone right down to the custom edge profile of the countertop.
