Black bathroom vanities can add a stylish and striking design element to your bath space, accentuating other colors in the room or contrasting with bright whites in your design.

Black bathroom vanities generally fall into a few common categories. The first encompasses a traditional, romantic or "old world" approach. Black bathroom vanities 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 of black bathroom vanity. These vanities may mirror the "modern" approach, with clean lines, up-to-date materials and a minimalist, efficient design. Contemporary style for black bathroom vanities is usually defined as employing materials and styles that have only recently become available—so these may feature artificial materials that approximate the look of natural surfaces, but at a much more reasonable price point.

Similarly, modern black vanities will feature the sleek, clean lines and efficiency of midcentury modern design, with a more strict adherence to the style themes of that post-war era.
