Redoing bathroom counters over white cabinets - transitional style - can't decide between these four Carrara slabs:

Option 1

i like 3 and 4

RE: Help me choose a Carrara marble slab

They all seem to have something going for them. At this point I can only eliminate number 1.
That leaves 2,3 and 4!

I actually like 1....very subtle and the pattern is different than the other 3. Of 2,3,4 I like 4 the most...it is more varied and interesting.

I like #2. I just prefer chunkier streaks over wispy ones.


 o
RE: Help me choose a Carrara marble slab

I like #3 the best.

Love both 3 and 4!

3, 2, 4. 1 not so much.


 o
RE: Help me choose a Carrara marble slab

4,1,3,2 in that order. But they're all beautiful.

3's my fav and looks more like the stuff we have in our master bath, it's got movement rather than just being splotchy. 4 is very similar to 3, 2 is too dark and 1 is to splotchy for my taste. If 3 is honed I would give it the edge over 4.

My picks are #2 or #4...

RE: Help me choose a Carrara marble slab

2 and 3 look like they're honed; are they? Honing changes some of the definition of the veins.

I vote for #4 whether you leave it polished or hone it. Followed by 3, 1 then 2. In that order.

RE: Help me choose a Carrara marble slab

My vote if for #4, I like the chunkier streaks.


 o

#3 gets my vote

Slab #3.


 o
RE: Help me choose a Carrara marble slab

I like 3&4, then 2. One not so much.


 o
RE: Help me choose a Carrara marble slab

I like #2.

I like the third one the best. Beautiful choices!!!


 o

I like 3 and 4.


 o
RE: Help me choose a Carrara marble slab

number 2....then number 3


 o
RE: Help me choose a Carrara marble slab

I like #1 because it is the most white. Otherwise, #3 would probably be my next choice.


 o
RE: Help me choose a Carrara marble slab

I like 4 because I like the striations in the slab.

2 is my least favorite.

Good luck!

You're not getting much of a consensus, are you? :)

I like 2.
