I would like to update my marble countertop in my bathroom. It is currently a one piece marble countertop and sink. Is it possible for me to tile over the marble with granite and if yes, what can I do with the sink? The bathroom is currently completed gutted other than the tub and cabinet/countertop. I am looking for ideas to update the countertop.

if the sink is a preformed part of the marble and not separate, then no you cant really tile over it and have a nice finish at the preformed sink. Most big box home centers will have preformed batchroom coutnertops/sinks to choose from. Or you could remove the preformed counterttop/siink, make a new one out of plywood, isntall your backer board and tile, and installa a new sink.

Now, if the sink and the coutnertop are two separate products, you can remove the sink, install backe4rboard and tile up to the hole, grout it, then re-install the sink and caulk it.
