To create drama for his own powder room, remodeler Mark Daniels of
Mark Daniels Kitchen & Bath, in Manassas, Va., chose dark granite for the countertop and floor and installed an illuminated glass sink for the vanity. He purchased Brazilian granite and used it for both the countertop and the granite slab floor.
Daniels installed xenon lights inside the vanity to illuminate the sink and under the wall-mounted vanity to illuminate the floor. He chose to use a single dimmer switch to operate the two hanging pendants and the under-sink and vanity-base lighting. The final look is sleek and striking.
This was the first time Daniels had installed a full slab granite floor. “It’s out of the ordinary -- a leading-edge design," he says. "The floor is durable and doesn’t have any grout lines.”
