We finally decided on Honed Absolute Black granite mainly based on price and availability. We originally chose the edge with nothing added (so edge looks only as thick as actual piece) to it but it came like this and we are okay with it.
The bathroom tile is from Daltile and is 2 x 4" tile in white. The black pieces are 6" as is the edging and corner pieces. The 2 x 4" tile took FOREVER to arrive and many pieces came broken which made it harder to install, more cuts were needed. But we love the finished look and it was worth the wait.
However, the kitchen still needs a backsplash and the two pieces of granite that will flank the stove. So finished pictures will be posted when that happens. But here is a sneak peek.
Remember our Inspirations.
I apologize in advance for the lighting.

|Corner detail, obviously molding and outlet need some work. We had to move switches up or cut hole in tile, we opted for moving up.|
