Contrasting with their more traditional counterparts, which may reflect a more romantic or historical style, modern bathroom vanities are usually inspired by the midcentury modern design movement. Starting in the Nordic countries of Europe and spreading worldwide, midcentury modern design is characterized by a sleek and efficient approach, and modern bathroom vanities tend to reflect this style.

Modern bathroom vanities can be a particularly good choice for bathrooms where space is at a premium. The minimalist approach and clean, simple lines of modern bathroom vanities can often offer space saving efficiency, with some modern bathroom vanities even incorporating a "floating" design for sink countertops, so that the entire sink fixture takes up very little space. This approach is a great example of modern bathroom vanity design combining attractive form with efficient function.
