Cool Blue Vanity

Two deep, sleek front drawers laminated in a soft blue add a cool pop of fresh color to an otherwise neutral-hued bathroom. An attached towel bar gives this floating vanity a modern look and lends a feeling of spaciousness to the room. Photo courtesy of Duravit

Vanity Drawers vs. Cabinets

Drawers are more efficient than cabinets because they hold more in an organized way. Since new plumbing regulations require that pipes go into the wall instead of coming up out of the floor, the drawers operate freely and hold lots of bathroom essentials. Photo courtesy of Duravit

Tranquil Vanity Style

This floating vanity is perfect for a modern bathroom setting. Deep drawers on each side are ample enough to store plenty of grooming essentials. The deep-blue color lends a serene, spa-like feel to the room. The hanging sconces have a sculptural quality while effectively illuminating the mirrors. Photo courtesy of Kohler

Bright Vanity Space

A long vanity with plenty of countertop space will easily accommodate two people getting ready for their day at the same time. Properly spaced sconces will illuminate the space better than overhead lights that cast shadows on faces. Photo courtesy of Moen

Timeless Vanity Flair

The mix of classic dark wood, oversized modern brushed-nickel drawer and cabinet pulls, and granite countertops lends a timeless feel to this master bathroom. It offers plenty of storage for two people to stash clutter, keeping the room neat and tidy. Photography and design by Nip Tuck Remodeling

Custom Vanity Accents

Repurposed Vanity Charm

Resembling a dining room breakfront retrofitted as an elegant vanity, this antique-style model would easily suit a traditional home. The wood-framed mirror flanked by simple, shaded classic sconces helps drive home the rich look. Photo courtesy of Walker Zanger

Elegant Vanity Details

Painted wood, crystal drawer and cabinet pulls, a stunning crystal and bronze sconce, plus the built-in makeup station all speak volumes of opulence in this master bathroom. The recessed lighting in the architectural soffit bathes the area in light, plus the wide expanse of mirror reflects the rest of the room for a dazzling effect.

Double-Duty Vanity

In general, a vanity set is composed of a vanity cabinet and countertop, most often with a sink or double sinks installed. Attached to the vanity or floating above it, there is usually a mirror, often with a recessed cabinet behind it. The vanity set may also feature cabinets, a chair or stool, and other decorative or necessary accessories like soap dishes and dispensers, and trays for storing bath items.

You'll have many styles to choose from, but most homeowners pair their vanity set with the overall design of the bathroom—traditional, contemporary, modern or otherwise. Depending on your style choice, you may be able to find the perfect vanity set at an antique store, an online retailer, or at your local home improvement or furniture store.
