Need help with choice of vanity & flooring

We are planning to use these mosaic glass tiles in our kids bathroom renovation. We are going to use them as a backsplash on the sink as well as an accent tile in the shower/tub. We are planning to get a white quartz countertop with blue or green specs and large white subway tiles with a wave to them for the shower/tub area. Trying to figure out what to do with the rest of the bathroom. Here are the 2 options we are considering:

1) White vanity with a dark wood tile floor.

2) Dark wood vanity with a ceramic white floor tile with blue marbling in it.

Any thoughts? Having a really hard time matching this mosaic to something for the floor. Definitely don't want an all white floor tile in the kids bathroom.

Also, the mosaic tile looks really dark in this picture. Its actually really light & beautiful when you see it in person, especially grouted.

I like the dark "wood" tile and white vanity. That mosaic tile is beautiful - could you post the name and manufacturer?

Thanks! The brand is Fired Earth Glass Works and the name is Caribbean Beach. Found it at the Tile Shop.

Another vote for dark floor, white vanity. Who is the manufacturer of the vanity?

I'd say either of the vanities would look good but that white tile with the blue marbling is not a good fit IMHO.

Just thinking about the colors of vanities. If the "kids" are girls, the white probably would be preferred by them. If the "kids" are boys then the wood, all boys and men like wood it seems.

Why don't you do some searches on Houzz dot com for your color/combo ideas and see what comes up.

not to crazy about the ceramic tile option, white/blue.

I agree with Enduring about the girls v. boys and color of the vanity. I've been going back and forth on that issue for my guest bath. The white seems very feminine to me, while wood is more unisex for future buyers. But that won't matter to you if you'll be in your home forever.

We have white floors in our bathrooms. I don't see dirt because we don't use shoes in the upstairs bathrooms. What I see is hair! If your kids are blondes, it will show up on the dark floor!

My vote is for dark wood-look tile floor and white vanity. I think it'll look great with your tile selections and be durable for a kids' bathroom.

Really like the glass tile. And both vanities are really nice. Where did you see them?? Cost?? Size - 60" or 72"???Hope you don't mind the questions but I'm having a tough time finding double vanities. Thx

I really like the dark floor, white vanity combination. I am very fond of the 2 colors
