Bathroom almost done... Stuck on countertop

Our bathroom remodel is almost done and I really need to pick out a countertop ASAP. I wanted marble but with two kids it just is not a smart choice. Would love some granite suggestions to go with my vanity and tile ( I attached a pic). Thank you do much.

I would take a door/drawer from your vanity and a tile sample and start going around to the granite places/stone yards in your area and see what strikes you and what looks good with what you have. Be sure to go through their remnant pile...that'd probably all you need and it will be a lot less.

You might look at Dreamy Marfil Caesar stone... a little darker than crema marfil marble, but a similar vibe and much more durable.

Other quartz mnfctrs have similar products too that are worthwhile looking at...LG, Dupont Zodiac, Silestone...

For a kid's bath, I would test samples with substances that will likely sit on the counter for a while like blue toothpaste, mouthwash, pink or purple cough syrup, makeup (and maybe just in the old days, things like watercolors!)... and how you can get them out. There are many threads here about both engineered and real stone staining.

Zoey, take your cellphone photos in landscape mode with the bottom of your camera to your right. You will never have orientation issues. :)
