Bathroom update! Pic

Wanting opinions on do I stain darker or paint oak cabinets? Picture doesn't show full vanity. There's a sink on each side and dropped makeup counter in center. Would u leave full sheet mirror? Also thought about rocking or tiling the wood panel in front of the tub? Splurge for granite or leave existing top?

My opinion is, a dark brown paint or Dark stain for cabinet. Check out quartz for the counter top instead of granite. More durable in my opinion and what I am using. My wife is an arch rep for daltile and sells the stuff... That's why we went with it in one and going with it in the other bath. Do matching tile up to the lip of the tub and get rid of the wood. You have good ideas of what you want changed. Go with your gut.

Looks amazing. Is there a shower behind the glass blocks? If so, how do you access it?

Quartz is pretty expensive. Granite properly sealed will do just fine.

I wouldn't paint oak cabinets. The graining looks terrible painted, IMO.

I like the idea of tiling the front of the tub.
