Hi, I noticed your question and while I'm not sure about the actual item in the picture we carry a lot of vanities that are sold complete with the faucet, sink, mirror, etc. Take a look here: Here are a few ideas: or

The vanity is custom as is the countertop. I am not sure what you mean by the gray panels. If you are referring to the tile on the walls and floor it is travertine. It may look gray on your monitor, but it is actually more of a yellowish color.

I believe it is 32 inches wide by 18 inches high and about 3 inches deep.

It's either travertine or a really good porcelain tile made to look like travertine. I personally prefer a porcelain tile in a wet area. Real stone can degrade over time and is hard to keep clean, especially in humid climates.

I can't recall what we used on the countertop, but for a similar look you could use CaesarStone in color Blizzard.

use same product inside nook as flooring or counter top? Tip: Make sure the bottom of the niche and any shelves are slightly tipped toward the shower so they drain. Shower niches are super useful, but if they hold water after every shower, they won't look great for long.
