When it comes to bathroom interior design, the vanity is not just a necessary accessory – more often than not, it’s a focal point. Hence the reason why you will rarely see a designer sidestep the opportunity to make a statement with a bathroom vanity. Whether it’s transforming a French bomb chest into a one-of-a-kind vanity or opting for a bespoke vanity made from an unexpected material like lacquer or stone, the designers are full of tips to enhance this seemingly utilitarian piece.
One of the easiest ways to turn an ordinary vanity into a vanity worthy of a second and third look? Color. Especially when paired with fun wallpaper – a designers favorite for pint-sized powder rooms – a colorful vanity can be a neat way to create a playful vibe on the move. Painted wood vanities aren’t the only option for picking up color, either. Designers are known for making bathroom vanities from non-traditional materials including mirrored panels, metal, or stone. While brightly colored stones like onyx or lapis could easily overwhelm a kitchen design, vanities provide the perfect opportunity to use a statement stone in moderation. Not sure you’re ready to splurge on a specimen slab? For the more reserved among us, unconventional drawer pulls can be the perfect way to dress up a more standard vanity.
Looking for even more vanity? To inspire you, we’ve put together 27 beautiful designer vanities. From modern floating vanities to classic wood vanities, these designs are perfect for inspiring your own bathroom vanity.
