Common Countertop Issues
There are some ways your bathroom countertop will show its age. Some of the most visible effects are:
- Cracks or chips
- Discoloration or stains
- Use of dated design or material
The most common and obvious problem with aging bathroom countertops are cracks or chips. While this is most common with cheaper products used in homes built for developments, it can happen over time even with better quality products. Use or age can contribute to cracks or chips.
Discoloration or stains are incredibly common in aging bathroom countertops. Stains can happen when someone uses hair or beard dye, certain nail products or even certain types of soaps and cleansers. Curling irons, straighteners, and other hot temperature devices can also cause discoloration if they are placed long enough on the counters. Since there are a number of chemicals, colored products, and electrical devices in a typical bathroom, discoloration is almost a given over time.
You may not notice it right away because you are used to seeing it, but your bathroom countertops could be outdated or using material that gives away its age. Styles do change and your bathroom could show it hasn’t moved with the times!
