Add A New Look To Your Bathroom With Some Baricatto Granite…



In this blog, I wanted to share a few photos of a project where we fabricated and installed several bathroom vanities in the color, Baricatto. I don’t know about you, but I really like this color.  It has some soft tones of cream and beige, but also areas with green and gold, giving this stone some interesting character.

Let’s take a look…

Notice the green veining running along the right side of the sink. It gives the top an area of interest, while adding a splash of color.

I also like the large areas of quartz and the spidering veining in this photo.

This bathroom used the same color, but contains more tones of gold and brown. Each bathroom definitely has its own unique look.

Golden Aurora Granite

Golden Aurora is a beautiful color with warm shades of gold, brown, cream and taupe. It has a gentle, flowing pattern that typically moves across the slabs. Notice the flow in this piece that runs up towards the undermount sink. It adds some character to the stone and helps create a focal point to the mirror.
