Is this a crazy idea?

I am still struggling with my small powder room! What do you think of a Stainless Steel counter top? It is pretty affordable to buy a brushed finish stainless countertop as long as you don't want the sink as an integral part.

Could I do a stainless countertop with a glass vessel sink or perhaps a stainless one? Would this look ok in the bathroom? Here is my wall paper (in another houses bathroom) and current bathroom again. I would stain the cabinets dark.

Thanks in advance for your input!

I think that you are all right. It is our main bathroom on the main floor and I have 2 little ones. I never thought about the cleaning nightmare, just how great it would look with the silver in the wallpaper. I would be cursing my decision in the first week of cleaning up prints and water drops I am sure.

So back to the drawing board. The problem that I am having with granite is that most of them seems far too busy with the wall paper when I put them together.

Here is my next question........What about if I found a solid black granite.....would you then paint the cabinet black instead of staining it? Would it be too dark?

I will include a picture of the staining that I practiced on some other cabinet doors, although I like the look of staining I think there will be too many colours with the floor and the cabinet and the dark top. What do you think?
