Vanity Ideas

Make a style statement in your bathroom with a beautiful vanity design that blends style and maximizes storage. Find the perfect design inspiration for your space with these popular bathroom vanity ideas.

Traditional Vanity

Inject classic appeal into a traditional bathroom with a beautifully crafted wooden vanity.  In this design, the rich, dark wood cabinetry features finely fitted panel doors. Elements of traditional style, such as marble countertops and tastefully detailed faucets and light fixtures, complement the bathroom's sophisticated feel.

Contemporary Style Vanity

Natural-looking materials, minimalistic hardware, and simple shapes are hallmarks of contemporary style. Clean lines in this bathroom keep a contemporary vanity looking crisp and modern. This vanity's simple design and durable, timeless finishes create a streamlined look with spa-like appeal. Minimalism is warmed up with soft, soothing hues and natural wood textures. Sleek faucets, long mirrors, and simple sconces complete the bathroom's crisp, clean look.

Cottage Style Vanity

Painted white or another soft color, a vanity with pretty moldings, furniture-style feet, and vintage inspired touches will look right at home in a cottage style bathroom. This vanity gets an extra dose of style from glass knobs. Use reproductions of these vintage baubles to give a vanity a quick and affordable update.

Dresser-Style Vanity

Furniture-inspired vanities bring grace and charm to any bathroom. A dresser-style vanity is an ideal way to blend modern and vintage elements. Repurposed furniture also creates a one-of-a-kind design and allows room in your budget to spend more on the rest of your bathroom's decor. To protect wood countertop surfaces and to make them more durable, finish them with a marine-grade sealant.

Floating Vanity

A wall-mount vanity creates a dramatic bathroom focal point. If your bathroom is short on square footage, put the walls to work. A floating countertop will visually expand a small bathroom by exposing more of the floor. Here, a glass shelf below the sink provides storage and display.

Single Vanity Designs

Make the most of a small bathroom with a storage-filled single vanity. Single vanities have less counter space, providing an opportunity to indulge in luxurious materials without breaking the bank. Rather than settling on stock cabinetry, add vintage charm with a salvaged table or choose a single cabinet design with unique details. Keeping countertop accessories to a minimum creates the illusion of more counter space. You can also make a bathroom look larger with a reflective vanity cabinet and mirror.

Double Bathroom Vanities

Double your bathroom's style and storage space with a two-person vanity. Two distinct sink areas are especially convenient in master or family bathrooms. A long vanity area perfectly accommodates storage and grooming needs for several users. To make the most of undersink space, outfit the vanity cabinets with towel cubbies or pullout storage shelves.

Open Vanity + Storage

Open vanity designs work equally well in large or small bathrooms and integrate nicely into any decorating style. A thoughtfully designed open vanity provides an airy look and accessible storage for towels and bath necessities. Open storage and baskets below the sinks lighten the look and offer versatile display space. To create a custom open vanity, mount a piece of countertop to a wood frame and legs. Add a shelf across the bottom for bathroom storage.
