Bathroom Vanity Styles
Bathroom vanity styles have evolved considerably over the hundred years or so since indoor plumbing took its rightful place in home design. From simple, traditional styles to elegant, spa-like installations, bathroom vanities come in an almost limitless variety of sizes, materials and price ranges.
In general, a bathroom vanity is defined as the combination of a mirror or mirrors, one or more sinks, a counter top, and usually some form of storage for accessories, linens or other bathroom necessities.
Style-wise, bathroom vanities run the gamut from traditional or even romantic designs—for example, a cabinet topped by a sink and featuring storage via drawers or shelving, paired with an ornate mirror—and sleeker, more contemporary approaches that may incorporate granite countertops, double sinks and minimalist, midcentury modern drawers.
For a more traditional look, many homeowners browse antique stores, flea markets and vintage online retailers for the perfect vanity, mirror or countertop. If your style leans more modern, most home improvement stores will have vanity solutions to suit a sleeker design.
