Just wondering if a lighter benchtop colour is a better option for bathroom vanity benches so as to blend with the basin colour.
We chose a blue colour (mystique marine laminate by Parbury) with greyey blue cupboards( Cloud)
has anyone gone for dark benchtops in the bathroom?

Yes, we have a dark grey - Wilsonart 60 Graphite Nebula with white cupboards and grey floor tiles. I love the contrast.
In our last house we had a dark blue in the ensuite and dark green in the bathroom. I

Hi in our last place we had Blue Sapphire Granite tops with antique white vinyl wrap doors in our bathroom with white semi-recessed vanity and in our ensuite we had black pearl granite (left over from the kitchen) over a Laminex Dark Pear timber vinyl wrap door configuration again with white semi recessed vanities.
We made sure that we kept the colours faily neutral and dressed the room up with coloured towels and accessories instead.
In building our new home, we are going with Ice Snow Caesarstone in the Ensuite & are possibly looking at Cracked Pepper in the Bathroom over neutral colour doors, such as Laminex mushroom linea.
Unless i change my mind again.

we went with chocolate cupboards (and floor tiles) and white benchtop and wall tiles. Someone recommended we go with whtie benchtop as it doesn't show dust, hair, toothpaste etc the way a darker one does. Plus the basin won't stand out.

We went with C'stone "snow" and laminex nocturne oak in both ensuite and bathrooms. I love the dark like contrast.
I also like the c'stone with the sparkles in it and the cracked pepper. (I desperately wanted cracked pepper for kitchen but boss thought it was too chunky).
I'm not a big fan of coloured benchtops in bathrooms as I think they can date the bathroom. For me its either light or dark no blues, greens, reds, etc

we are going for charcoal floor tiles and benchtop with white cupboards. We like the contrast and want our sinks to stand out too.
Are we Crazy? yeah probably!

charcoal/black bench tops with white cupboards and charcoal/black floor tiles with chrome fixing, we loved the contrast.
