Bathroom Vanity Design Ideas to Inspire Now

My Own Bathroom Vanities

We opted for two individual vanities and then created a bridge as a makeup area.

I liked how the angles of the vanity’s marble top and base echoed the other angles in the space we created in our DIY bathroom design.

I also liked the base molding of the vanity cabinets since it helps the pieces feel more like furniture.

One thing I miss about our former bathroom is drawers for storage…I have zero now! Without drawers, it becomes necessary to get creative, and here are some handy organization finds that just may be the ticket:

Dark Painted Wood Vanities

Like high contrast with the vanity and marble top?

Aren’t these sconces amazing?

What a bonus when natural light floods your bath, and have you ever seen lamps in lieu of wall sconces?

Before we painted this vanity, it was a 20 year old builder-grade oak vanity with orange stain.

This paint color (above) is an interesting charcoal color that has both brown and navy blue undertones. In some lighting, it looks like oil rubbed bronze, and in others, a soft black.

    We’re in the middle of a powder bath and laundry room renovation. And, least I forget, The Hallway of Doors.
    3 spaces in 126 sq feet. There are almost as many decisions to make as when we redid our kitchen a few years back!
    We have to use a wall mount faucet as the sink I purchased years ago (like maybe 20) at a bargain price from our design center is quite large. The mirror is from a barn sale and very old and the dresser to become a vanity I found at a reuse shop. My hardest decision is the mixing of wood and paint. And finding a plumber, thats another story!

      I’m so happy to hear from a sister in renovation since we’re in it with all its challenges! And thank you for mentioning the hallway of doors! We are encountering space after space bursting with clunky factor and doors so I get it. I have learned that it’s rare to get the paint color right on the first try. Sometimes I’ll have to paint a whole wall to know. As far as the mix, I don’t ever have the full vision of a space cemented in my mind or on paper. I hold things loosely as I go, tweaking, pivoting, and layering until it feels right. When things don’t feel right, I try to determine what is not flowing or meshing and adjust. Finding a plumber? Oy. Prayer is always an option. ๐Ÿ™‚
