Design Tips to Create Your Dream Bathroom Vanity

A bathroom vanity is often thought of as simply the bathroom cabinet that holds up the sink and provides storage space underneath. But it can be much more than this with the right materials, clever design techniques, and a dose of creativity. Once you settle on the type of sink, faucet, and countertop you want, then comes the fun part of designing a bathroom fixture that you’ll love using every day.

Here are some design tips to help you create the bathroom vanity of your dreams, regardless of what your remodeling budget is.

Bathroom Vanity Mirror Options

Every good bathroom vanity needs a great mirror, and there are lots of mirror options to choose from. Vanity mirrors are often narrower than the total width of the vanity, but you can also keep these two widths exactly the same. It’s also fun to add multiple mirrors of varying heights to a wide vanity to make your bathroom seem more spacious. Many homeowners choose frameless mirrors for bathroom vanities because they have a modern, spa-like look and are cost-effective too.

Bathroom Vanity Lighting

Also, make sure to pay attention to your bathroom vanity lighting to brighten up a small space and make bathroom tasks, like makeup application and shaving, a bit easier. The lighting that you install on and around your vanity can also serve to energize you in the morning and help you wind down before bedtime. Install a vanity bar light horizontally or vertically or add a bathroom sconces on each side of the vanity for balanced bathroom lighting. Horizonal wall lights are also great options for vanity lighting and can be mounted upward or downward.

Functional, Yet Stylish Storage for Your Bathroom Vanity

Storage is a key feature of a bathroom storage, and you’ll want to keep this space tidy and organized so it is more useful to you and your guests. Deep vanity storage drawers are great for storing extra rolls of toilet paper and spare towels. Meanwhile, shelving with lazy susans can help you access items with no fuss. If your bathroom has a separate closet for storage, you may want to take a minimalist approach and maintain an open look with no cabinet doors at all on your vanity.

Vanity Color Schemes

The color of your vanity should tie into the color of your overall bathroom scheme, but don’t feel restricted to only certain colors to use in the bathroom. These rooms are actually excellent places to experiment with fun colors that you might not feel comfortable using in your living room or bedroom. Shades of blue and green are always popular bathroom colors, but you can also pair unique colors, like crimson or lavender, with white on the vanity to liven up the space and give it more personality.

Add Flowers and Decorative Features

Adding little decorative touches is often the most fun part about redesigning your bathroom, and these touches don’t have to be expensive or overly fussy. A small vase with fresh flowers looks lovely on the corner of bathroom vanity to bring in elements of the outside world. You can also add beauty and a sense of calm to your bathroom with decorative towel bars and rings, the towels themselves, perhaps an aromatic candle or two.

Perhaps Even Repurpose an Old Bedroom Dresser

Many people are hesitant about remodeling their bathrooms because of the high cost and time commitment involved. But there are many budget-friendly ways to redesign your bathroom and really accommodate your biggest needs and wants. One suggestion is to repurpose an old bedroom dresser into a bathroom vanity as a DIY project. With a jigsaw, drill, and level, you can turn an outdated household fixture into something exciting cost-effective for the bathroom. You can find tutorials online for this DIY project that demonstrate how to make adjustments for the sink, accommodate plumbing, and paint or stain your finished product.
