Styles for Bathrooms with Vanities

To help you find the perfect bathroom vanity, here are a few tips:

Color Adds Pop

Do not limit yourself to shades of white in a bathroom vanity. Consider a fun pop of color and go neutral on walls and floor instead. If you are hesitant to go with such a bold color, consider a pre-painted vanity in shades of gray. This works especially well in modern style bathrooms that lean towards monochromatic pop. Add a splash of color from a bathroom wall light or painted tile to bring a comfortable glow.

Bathroom Vanities with Legs

A vanity with legs looks like a piece of furniture and gives an airy feeling to a bathroom. Even the smallest lift off the floor makes a difference in giving this ready-made, marble-topped vanity a custom look. Bathroom vanities with legs also lend a traditional elegance to the space, even when paired with a more modern style.

Traditional Vanities for Bathrooms

Bring Old world style to the bathroom with a huge stone sink. Other Old world features you can look for include scrolled iron detailing on the cabinet doors. Traditional vanities can also pair well with farmhouse style sinks for a more rustic design aesthetic.

Bathroom Vanities with Storage

Metal framework and open shelving add a casual, industrial feel to this bathroom. Get the look with a vanity that has the best of both worlds with drawers to hide everyday essentials and a display shelf to show off favorite things. These vanities can come in a variety of shapes and styles, from bathroom vanities with shelves to bathroom vanities with storage towers. Each heralds a different design aesthetic, so it really is a matter of finding the one that speaks most to your style.

Some variations on bathroom vanities with storage in mind are bathroom vanities with shelves and bathroom vanities with storage towers. The tower design especially can also serve as an eye-catching aesthetic choice. There are also various open bathroom vanities that allow you to customize how you store your bathroom belongings and essentials.


Whether you’re a fan of old world style, a streamlined industrial look or you crave color, there are beautiful bathroom vanities for any design style.
