Bathroom vanities are great design pieces that serve as the focal point of bathroom spaces. Roomhints talked to these three interior designers about a few bathroom vanities that they’re loving.

1. Scale is key — use a smaller, sleek vanity for smaller spaces

This bathroom features a unique flamingo wallpaper, a fun, whimsical mirror, and a sleek, minimal vanity. The metal vanity brings out the soft gray marbling in the tile backsplash and floor, and coordinates perfectly with the metal hardware on the sink.

A simple, streamlined bathroom vanity like this one is perfect for smaller bathrooms. Fun fact: this was the very first bathroom Dina Bandman designed after starting her company!

2. Go for form and function

This bathroom vanity is a versatile piece that can work in multiple interior styles: modern farmhouse, mid-century, contemporary, beach house, transitional, loft.

It features satisfying lines and volumes and a sculptural base.

There is both closed and open storage, which gives you both style and functionality. Open shelves at the base give an illusion of greater floor space and gives the piece a floating quality.

This piece also looks more furniture-like, rather than being strictly utilitarian.

Lori’s Top Bathroom Vanity Hints

  1. A custom vanity will fit your space and your needs exactly, but will probably cost more.
  2. Consider taller storage in addition to the vanity when space permits.
  3. Don’t force two sinks in a space where two people using them would be on top of each other.
  4. Coordinate with other finishes in the space.
  5. The vanity is furniture for the bath, so think of it the way you would a piece in another room in your house. Is it stylish or just functional? Why not both?
  6. Style the vanity top as you would another piece in the house. No mouthwash bottles, please!
  7. Coordinate the mirror with the vanity. It doesn’t have to match, but should feel harmonious and in scale, and not hung too high for the user.
  8. Getting the right size is key. Don’t over-furnish the space.

Bathroom vanities are a great design piece to work with because there are so many different styles, sizes, and features to choose from. It’s a piece that makes a major design statement in the bathroom while also being super functional with its countertops and storage.

3. Use your bathroom vanity to create a bold, luxurious impact

The black vanity helps to ground the black, busier patterns in the tile and backsplash, and its curved bottom contrasts nicely with the straight lines in those same patterns. The hardware on the sink coordinates perfectly with the hardware on the bath.
