Marble countertop for vanity help
I am hoping I can get some help here. We are in the midst of a complete bathroom remodel. Its our biggest project to date and I've been obsessed with planning. These forums have been a huge resource!
My current question is with the vanity. I envision a white vanity with marble countertops. I have found on ebay a style that I like for approximately $1400 that includes EVERYTHING. I thought it may be cheaper to find a remnant and have the top fabricated but I have been getting quotes just for the fabrication running from $250 - $970. This is not including the cost of the remnant, faucets, undermount sinks, etc. So my question is:
Is there a benefit to having a slab fabricated vs. purchasing a ready made piece. Would the marble likely be a poorer quality purchasing a ready made all in one product either off the internet or from a big box store?
Money is definitely an issue but I also want to take into consideration quality and if splurging for the fabricated top is really worth the added expense I am willing to go for it.
