Function and Fashion: How to Select the Perfect Modern Vanity

Modern bathroom vanities are often considered to be functional pieces that serve specific purposes and offer useful storage solutions. However, there is no need to sacrifice aesthetics when choosing a vanity or be forced to compromise on features to get the look you want. Stylish bathroom vanities combine the best of both worlds to help you maximize the bathroom space you have while expressing your unique personality through interior design.

Basic Functions of a Vanity

A bathroom vanity is typically a structure that holds your sink and can provide storage space in the form of drawers and cupboards. These are great places for stowing away toiletry items, hair tools, and cleaning products. Compared to basic pedestal sinks, vanities are may be chosen for of their storage opportunities and extra countertop space.

Depending on their size and shape, bathroom vanities can also be used to hold vases of flowers, potted plants, and scented candles. These are all ways to take your vanity’s style to the next level and create a cozier and more inviting room for your household members and guests.

Adding Personal Style to a Vanity

But beyond basic functionality, there are many ways to add personal touches to a bathroom vanity to make it your own. For example, you can choose a floating vanity for a modern touch or a wall-mounted vanity for a more traditional look. Stylish bathroom vanities can really change the appearance of a room by coordinating with your other bathroom décor and perhaps even the décor in the rest of your house too.

A great way to add style to a vanity is with a decorative mirror that adds elegance and dimension to your bathroom. You can also choose from various materials, colors, and finishes for your vanity based on your personal style and budget, such as solid plywood, laminate, and marble. To liven up an otherwise standard bathroom space, consider installing a vanity with a brightly colored countertop, with uniquely painted cupboards, with ornately carved details on the cabinets, or with stunning hardware that makes a bold statement.

Popular Vanity Styles and Themes

Shades of white, black, and gray are the most popular colors used on modern bathroom vanities, as well as natural wood colors that bring elements of the outdoors into your home. These are classic colors that will go with any paint color you choose for the wall, even if you decide to renovate later. With the right vanity in your bathroom, you can give this space a more rustic, country, contemporary, or playful vibe.

Other modern bathroom vanity trends are open shelving concepts that put your folded towels and other items on display for a spa-like feel. Floating vanities are also trending in homes because of their sleek look, adjustability, and potential to save space in small bathrooms. Meanwhile, many homeowners are choosing quartz and marble for their bathroom vanity sinks for an elegant and upscale look.

Minimalism is a big theme with modern bathroom vanity design right now as a way to simplify life and embrace the essentials instead of being surrounded by clutter. Depending on the overall style of your home, it can be fun to blend modern and vintage elements in the bathroom by incorporating an antique-style vanity with high-tech bathroom features, such as a smart toilet or energy-efficient shower head. Bathroom vanity trends to consider also include asymmetrical styles for added intrigue, eclectic colors paired with geometric wallpaper, and mixed textures to create a sophisticated space to get ready to go out and wind down at the end of the day.
