Bathroom Vanities: Form + Function

Posted on May 13, 2019

Vanities are sometimes overlooked but they are crucial to creating a functional bathroom. Imagine brushing your teeth or shaving without a vanity in your bathroom, the experience will be more of an inconvenience than it should be. Adding a vanity in your bathroom is a chance to add both form and function into your space. If you’re undergoing bathroom remodeling and you’re looking to add a vanity in your bathroom or simply improve on your existing one, then the following tips and ideas might be useful:

Floating Vanities

A floating vanity is great for small spaces, as it gives the illusion of more space. Although, you would be giving up extra storage for that free space underneath, a floating vanity is much easier to clean and maintain.

Mirror Options

There are tons of options for mirrors out in the market, some are just plain and simple whereas others are so intricately made that they can be the focal point of interest in your bathroom. Choose a mirror that reflects your style and personality. A round one is great for leaving space for accents at the back whereas a wide, rectangular one offers more coverage. If you choose a round one, you can add a wallpaper accent at the back that features colorful prints to add some personality to your bathroom. You can consult a bathroom remodeling expert to find out the available options for your space.


Drawers and cabinets make a vanity more functional. Even in a floating vanity, adding drawers is still a viable option. Storage is important especially if you don’t have much space. You can keep your towels and toiletries in your bathroom vanity storage for easy access.


A vessel sink can be a beautiful addition to your vanity but if you don’t have much counter space, a recessed sink might be a better option for you. You can also consider wall-mounted faucets to save counter space, just ask your bathroom remodeling contractor if this is a viable option for your bathroom.

A well-designed vanity can really improve your bathroom’s overall look and functionality so it is important to give it as much thought as you would the other aspects of your bathroom.
