Bathroom Vanities

Bathroom vanities are a combination of both the sink and the surrounding storage and are sold in an endless array of sizes, finishes and styles. Vanities contribute to the functionality of a space and serve as a visual anchor in the design. Swapping your dated vanity for a fresh, true-to-you design or adding a freestanding cabinet to create much-needed storage will instantly elevate your space and bring value to your home.

Pedestal Sink

Pedestal sinks are anomalies on our list because, technically speaking, they aren’t vanities at all. These distinct sinks made the cut due to their sleek style, practical price range and iconic, easy-to-squeeze silhouette that’s perfect for petite powder rooms and hall baths. Classic pedestal sinks are crafted from vitreous china, clay or marble and feature a narrow pedestal base supporting an expansive sink basin. Many pedestals feature a sink basin flanked by two ledges to offer seamless countertop storage for soap dispensers, toothbrushes, hand towels and more.

Wall-Mounted Vanity

Wall-mounted vanities are defined as vanities that are secured into the wall and do not feature storage or cabinetry that reaches the floor. This airy vanity style is a designer favorite because it minimizes visual clutter, provides bathroom storage and creates an illusion of a larger space. There is a wall-mounted vanity for every interior style but some of our favorite designs are the minimalist-modern floating vanity and the head-turning, industrial design with striking exposed plumbing.

Freestanding Vanity

Freestanding vanities are defined as vanities that are independent of both the wall and the floor. Freestanding vanities are designed to resemble standalone furniture with built-in legs and ample storage space for toiletries, towels and more by way of functioning drawers and cabinet door storage. Put this style at the top of your list for an ensuite makeover, or take advantage of its out-of-sight storage in a kids’ bathroom.

Double Sink Vanity

The secret to a happy, long-lasting relationship? Double vanity. The key to success in your kids’ shared bathroom? Double vanity. These peace-keeping fixtures are beloved for their dual sink design and expansive counter space. Traditional double vanities measure around 72 inches wide and feature a cabinet base, but there are space-saving floating options available, too.

Bathroom Mirrors

Change your bathroom mirrors, change your life. Mirrors make a huge impact on your bathroom design and have the power to reflect your personality into the space in a matter of minutes. Bonus: Mirrors are much easier on the wallet and there are endless shapes and styles to choose from. Keep reading to get the rundown on our favorite bathroom mirror styles.

Medicine Cabinet Mirrors

Medicine cabinets are game-changing additions to any bathroom because they cut the chaos of your product-littered counter in half and look good doing it. The unassuming cabinets are built into the wall and feature storage space for toiletry items hidden behind a mirrored door.

Pivot Wall Mirror

Find your best angle (literally!) with a pretty pivot wall mirror. Pivot mirrors are ideal for bathrooms because they are secured to the wall with a swivel rod that allows for easy mobility and adjustment based on the time of day and lighting in the space. Choose between classic chrome, matte black or glam brass finishes to best suit your interior design style.

Framed Mirrors

Framed mirrors are failproof swaps that are easy to install and pack personality into your bathroom design. Stick to a classic chrome or aged brass finish for your traditional ensuite, or opt for a cool, matte-black frame to bring modern edge and contrast to your guest bath.
