In that case, moisture and cosmetic products are the best nemesis for your bathroom vanities with tops.
Always consider anti-stain and anti-bacterial properties of your bathroom countertops. This is vital for its preservation and longer lifespan. For natural stones, we impregnate sealants on granite and marble to increase their anti-stain abilities.

Soft and Exquisite Marble Bathroom Countertops
Despite its soft nature, marble has carved its name in history as one of the most luxurious and high-end stones used for kitchen and bathroom countertops. The usual color of marble stones is stark white or black with bold veining of gray or black.
Because it is easily etched with acidic solutions, we always advise our clients to avoid placing lemon juice, lime, or vinegar on top of their marble countertops. Coasters and trivets will be a useful thing to have to protect its surface.
Similar to granite, we also impregnate sealants to marbles to reinforce its anti-stain capabilities. Monthly sealing can be done by using topical sealants. Nonetheless, marble slabs are pretty easy to clean.
The natural gloss and deep hues of marble makes it pop-out from the background. Seams are rarely noticeable for marble because of the bold veinings it has. Likewise, the best marble brands you can have are Carrara and Calacatta. Its stark white elegance is a true winner for small bathroom renovations.
