Washstand vanity in corner: should counter overhang?
I'm making a washstand-type vanity which will go in the left corner of a small bathroom. I'm making it out of an old wood desk I took apart. The legs are turned wood, ie, don't have a straight, flat leg that will touch the wall. They have a slight taper towards the bottom. The counter is a 30" long piece of marble, which will overhang the cabinet an inch on the right side. BTW, I have two pieces of marble cut for the backsplash and left "sidesplash." I might not use the side one b/c, again, it seems oddly asymmetrical to have that piece of marble only on one side.
My question: Should I plan for an overhang on the left side too? If I do, there will be a 1" gap between the wall and the left side of the cabinet. It seems wrong to have that gap there. If the counter is flush with the side of the cabinet (no overhang), the cabinet's side will touch the left wall, but the counter won't be symmetrical. I can't tell if the turned legs are a factor. What do you think is worse, an asymmetrical cabinet or that gap?
Here are two pictures illustrating a gap. I couldn't find any showing a flush counter on the side against the wall.
I'm at a loss here, and I'd appreciate any input. Thanks!
