Bathroom Vanity Tables and Furniture
Bathroom vanity tables and furniture are available in a wide range of styles and price ranges, so exploring the options prior to designing your bathroom is an essential task.
Add Extra Cabinets for Storage
If you are willing to sacrifice some counter space, you can increase your storage space by adding a cabinet on your countertop. In this bathroom, the butter-colored, furniture-style cabinet provides extra shelving space without making the room look cluttered. Design by Gail Drury in Glen Ellyn, Ill.
Hide Your Laundry Hamper
A small makeup area is nestled below a window, which is bordered by two functional cabinets below a lowered ceiling. One cabinet is loaded top to bottom with 10 customized jewelry pullouts. The other contains a laundry hamper and is used to store linens. Co-designed by Marilyn Akins and Gail Drury
An ordinary wine crate was transformed into decorative bathroom storage by applying a coat of stain by Minwax called Weathered Oak. The nice gray tone gave the wood an aged look that blends well with this contemporary bathroom.

Create a Jewelry Organizer
For the bathroom of a longtime customer-turned-friend, designer Katie Gagnon created a unique storage unit for the space between a pair of pedestal sinks. The storage cabinet was custom made while the door is a vintage salvaged piece.
Floating Shelves With a Twist
When designing a bathroom for a busy family of five, Wanda Ely used a wide trough-style sink that lets all three children brush their teeth at once and she added clever storage solutions. The floating, rustic maple shelves had holes routed out of them to fit various glass and metal inserts that help hold and organize their belongings.
Upgrade Your Vanity
In this guest bathroom, Alisa Hoffman designed the cabinetry with open storage for extra towels, baskets for toilet tissue and a space to sit down.
Take Advantage of Unusual Layouts
In a home short on storage, builder Todd Best worked hard to provide his client with plenty of cabinet space. This custom sliding storage unit was built into an area of the master bathroom that is normally wasted space.
Turn to Baskets
To make the most of a nook in this bathroom, a built-in shelving unit provides open storage for towels and accessories. The lower shelves have baskets for hidden organization.
Round Up Those Towels
This neutral-toned contemporary bathroom is trendy yet practical, featuring unique storage spaces with plenty of room for towels and miscellaneous toiletries. These accessories add texture and color to the otherwise monochromatic hue of the room.
Add Double-Duty Storage
Take It Into the Halls
Running out of space in the bathroom? Make clever use of stylish storage units, like these baskets holding towels, and you can hide your necessities in plain sight!
Try This Budget-Friendly Trick
Repurposed white crates are creatively placed on the bathroom wall. The crates add functional storage for bathroom necessities and beautifully accent the room's light blue wall color.
Add a Ladder
This bright orange ladder adds a pop of color and dimension in this contemporary white bathroom, and was built for storing toiletry items and towels in an unused corner of the room.
There are a few common categories bathroom vanity tables and furniture fall into. The first encompasses a traditional, romantic or "old world" approach. Bathroom vanity tables and furniture that fall into this category tend to feature the ornate, intricately designed and elegant style of Victorian or old-world European bath spaces. Plush cushions on seating, oval tabletops with ornate trim, and gilded mirrors with intricately designed frames are common.
Next up is a more contemporary style. To some degree, this may mirror the "modern" approach, with clean lines, up-to-date materials and a minimalist, efficient design. Contemporary style is usually defined as employing materials and styles that have only recently become available.
Similarly, modern vanity tables and furniture will also feature the sleek, clean lines and efficiency of mid-century modern design, with a more strict adherence to the style themes of that post-war era.
