Traditional bathroom vanities are generally thought of as maintaining the old-world European feel of "furniture-style" vanities. This means that they often feature an ornate design with delicately carved tabletops, intricate molding, and elegant hardware. Drawers or cabinets are common, and the most commonly employed material is classic, solid hardwood. Colors run the gamut, but many traditional bathroom vanities use common tones like whites, beiges and other light, airy colors.

Mirrors are often a focal point of traditional bathroom vanity design, and they can be quite ornate, sometimes featuring gilded wood or metal frames with carved or sculpted nature scenes. Traditional bathroom vanities may also feature accessories that reflect their classic design, such as ornate trays for perfumes and other bath accessories.
