Traditional bathroom vanities are exquisite, luxurious and quite easy to make them stand out. You only need to choose your backsplash wisely, which in this case should be a color contrasting with the vanity. A lot of people play it safe around porcelain or ceramic tiles, but you can also achieve a really elegant look with Carrara marble tiles.
Carrara marble is pure natural stone which can either be honed or polished to give the surface a different texture. It also comes in different color tones to create a wide variety of themes. The trick here is selecting a color for the Carrara tile that is going to juxtapose the vanity hence make it the centerpiece attraction when anyone walks into your bathroom.
Here is another useful tip; how you arrange the tiles will also help bring out the traditional bathroom vanities. The normal tile-on-tile layering isn’t a bad idea though you it’s a bit limiting. Why not venture into something completely different like a subway honed look, a Basketweave design or even a hexagon mosaic tile look. What this does is create unique patterns on the wall or backsplash, creating leading lines that draw the eye to the vanity set.
About color, you need a little bit of expertise balancing the vanity and marble hues to come up with an exquisite look. Cream, grey or white Carrara marble tiles seamlessly blend with dark or light colored traditional bathroom vanities; a white, dark brown or rosewood vanity set would pair perfectly. Carrara marble tiles can also come in different hues like Emperador café, Saint Laurent polished or Cappuccino beige, Nero Marble or Silver Fantasy. Get an expert to advise you on how these hues can marry with the vanity color to come out with something totally unique.
