A well-designed vanity is a great addition to any bathroom. It can add storage and diminish time spent on your morning and nighttime routines. As you plan the style of vanity you want, don’t forget the following pointers:
Determine the style you want
Once you find the layout that best suits your bathroom and determine how many sinks you want, the next step is to decide on the vanity design. Do you prefer traditional cabinets? An antique furniture piece? A pedestal sink?
If you want traditional vanity cabinets, there are several factors to consider:
- Do you want a paint or stain?
- What color do you prefer?
- What type of door style do you want?
- Do you want drawers, doors or pullouts?
Vanity cabinets don’t have to be built-ins. Free-standing vanities aren’t attached to any walls and can have open shelving in lieu of closed cabinets. They also can feature furniture-style details.
Another style is a floating vanity, which is mounted to the wall and has open space below. This contemporary bathroom’s tile vanity has open shelving, but you can also find pieces with closed cabinetry.

Choose the type of sink
The next step is to determine the type of sink, such as undermount, drop-in, vessel or wall-mount. After that, choose the color and material for your sink, whether it’s porcelain, natural stone or something else. Source: Forbes
Add more storage
Once you’ve made sure that you have the basics down, that your vanity will actually fit in your space and that it’ll serve all the major functions that you need it to, I definitely recommend adding in a few more storage features. Ask your in-store designer if your cabinet maker can make some of the ideas that you gathered before work in your cabinet design, or if she/he has any suggestions for things that you may not have thought about. There are so many neat, simple options that make storing your stuff, and using it on a daily basis about a million times better! Source: CreeklineHouse
