Thoughts on a counter top for my master bathroom vanity.....

threeapplesJuly 5, 2012

our Georgian style house will have 18" statuario marble tiles (it has dark grey veining in it) on the floor, the shower will be all statuario in other sizes, and the double vanity is a stained cherry that is sort of furniture-like. I have the option of using a slab of montclair danby honed for the vanity top (it has lots of dark grey veining), but it will cost over 3k for fabrication. I love it, but it's a lot of money for this vanity top. Is there a better, more historic-looking coloring I can use on the vanity if I choose not to go with the montclair for this application? Would a dark granite in a honed or leathered appearance look out of place with all the white of the floor, etc.? Any other thoughts? If I want to use the montclair danby I need to decide by tomorrow am. thanks!

You can see what I used with my calacatta gold honed tile and dark wood, furniture-style vanity: leathered antique brown, which is really more of a grayish brown color. I didn't want to use marble on the counter for maintenance reasons and because I couldn't find one that matched or coordinated well with the floor (even other calacatta's didn't look right). I also considered a gray limestone from Greece, but, again, the maintenance problems.
