Planning to use this polished porcelin tile Ankara Gris in the shower, floor and tub surround, but need ideas for the vanity top. I've looked at granite, quartz and marble stones... I like Calcutta Gold marble, but don't want the vanity top to compete with the tile....Any ideas or recommendations?

A soft gray quartz, no pattern, would be wonderful. Color of vanity?

I'm having the vanity custom built and was looking to use maple wood with a walnut or cherry stain...What do you think? Do you have any names of soft gray quartz that I could start looking at?

I agree something almost solid in appearance. Dark cabinets would look great. Or even an off white with a chocolate glaze.

Thanks for the feedback! I laid about 4 pieces of this tile on the bathroom floor and there is entirely too much movement and variation for my taste! I have decided to return the tile and pay whatever re-stocking fee! Now, I'm back at square one! Looking for a different tile....This time I'll go with something more neutral, but elegant...

If you like Calacatta Gold and believe that is what you will use for your vanity top, then keep that in mind while picking out your floor tile. A travertine such as a Durango would look very nice. However, remember that a natural stone tile will have much more movement than a porcelain or ceramic.
