bathroom Marble counter seam
We have a large (long) bathroom counter - 128"
We are looking to install a white marble slab counter top. The largest slabs we can find are slightly under 120 inches
So we likely need a seam (unless anyone can get a 129 inch slab)
The question, should we place the slab in the middle or at one of the sinks (they are at either side)
You walk in looking at the middle, so a seam in the middle will be very visible and placing the seam at the sink minimizes the size and places it in a less visible location. One builder friend told us placing the seam at the sink was the best way) but the fabricator insists that seams at the sink can get weak and break or discolor. (We are buying the house from a builder that has a deal with the fabricator so they may be trying to save costs for a longer slab)
Your answers are appreciated
(Note - this is a bathroom top so we are not as concerned with etching or staining - we used granite in the kitchen)
