vanity mirror placement--against countertop?
For the house we are building, I was thinking of not doing the typical vanity countertop 4" built-in backsplash since we are doing laminate for now and I hate that tell-tale black line. We were going to do a custom tile backsplash instead. Our builder said if we aren't doing the built-in backsplash, the vanity mirror must rest against the countertop itself. The mirror is the typical frameless builder grade.
My question is, has anyone done this? I would think as long as it was caulked that it would keep water out.
And then the other option, and what I had originally wanted to do, was just hang the mirror on the wall, balanced -4-5" above the top of the tile backsplash, with the top of the mirror 4-5" below the lighting fixture. But the builder is saying the mirror is too heavy for that.
