Stone thickness for vanity tops?

drbeanie2000March 15, 2012

This was discussed at least once, I know, but I'd like to hear more. Does a bathroom vanity top need to be as thick as a kitchen countertop? I'm pretty sure we saw some gorgeous slabs at the stone place that we had to dismiss because the slabs were too thin for kitchen use. Now I'm wondering.

Of course we will ask our fabricator, but I'd love to know what others' experiences are.

My new vanity top isn't quite in yet, but I've chosen a 3/4" marble slab. It seems typical to see 3/4" tops, especially on pre-configured units on the market, and I've seen lots of pictures both here and on Houzz of the thinner slabs. ~Tina
