How big is your bathroom? I ask this because in my humble opinion, in a small space (bathroom counters vs. kitchen counters) it is worth it to go with what you want...even if the price difference per square foot is significant, since you have a small number of square feet, the total price may not be as big a deal as you think.

We're doing some tile in the bathroom. After I had settled on 4" square white tiles - @ about $.25 each or about 2.25 per square foot I found an absolutely beautiful tile that I loved for $4 a square foot. I'm somthing of a cheapskate, and it was hard for me to justify spending twice as much per square foot. But I use that bathroom daily, and I felt that the extra $100 was worth it to have tile I loved, vs. tile that was acceptable. Your mileage may vary, but I would cost it out completely before ruling out what you want. My bathroom will get Corian counters, which i can't afford in the kitchen, but I can in the smaller bath.
