The vanity is the feature most likely to serve as s focal point in a bathroom and the reason for that is quite simple: everything else is utilitarian and doesn’t leave much room for customization. Tubs don’t usually stand out unless you absolutely want them to and shower cabins are pretty basic too. This leaves the modern bathroom vanities as the most likely option. If you choose to have one custom-made you have a lot of stylish designs and ideas to choose from so let’s get to it and have a look at some.
Opt for a floating bathroom vanity if you want to make the room appear larger, more spacious and more airy than it actually is. There are lots of advantages offered by this type of design. For example, wall-mounted vanities allow you to easily clean under them or to add LED strip light to the underside for a glowing effect.
Shelf vanities are also very practical and great at keeping the room spacious and airy. You can easily build something as stylish as this yourself. You’d need the support legs and a thick wooden counter. If you want you can also add a bottom shelf for towel storage.

It is possible to create such a design yourself or to even repurpose an existing furniture piece. In any case, keep the design simple and let the materials speak for themselves.
A wall-mounted vanity doesn’t necessarily have to mean less storage space. You can have sufficient storage and keep the room spacious with a design that’s simple and practical. You can conceal the drawers by choosing not to add drawer pulls or knobs and to instead use a hidden system.
Consider matching your bathroom vanity to other elements present in the room. For example, you can have a matching storage unit or the vanity could coordinate with the wall behind it in some way. Another option is to choose a design that’s simple and interesting at the same time, like this one here and its mosaic of colors.
If you want the vanity to accommodate two sinks, then a clean and linear design would be just right. Position the two sinks in the desired spots and use the rest of the surface as a counter or storage surface. Since the vanity is wide, it can include sufficient storage without having to occupy any floor space.
Modern bathroom vanities stand out in the most interesting and simple ways. In this case, the counter holding the two sinks is an extension of the vanity which takes the form of a compact storage cabinet. The vanity is suspended above the floor so the area rug can comfortably fit underneath.
It’s always rewarding to explore and highlight the beautiful particularities of the materials included in a design. For example, a wood vanity can make a bathroom feel warm and can also feature a really nice texture and color which can be highlighted with vanity lights or through stylish contrasts.
Display a mirror with a frame that matches the vanity to get a bathroom decor that’s cohesive and stylish in a classy way. The combination would look particularly elegant and beautiful if both the vanity and the mirror frame were made of wood in order to add a warm touch to the whole room.
Update your bathroom design with a modern vanity that looks simple but offers great functionality. Instead of a one-piece unit, consider a solid wood counter that’s detached from the storage cabinet. The space in between can be used as a storage compartment for towels. The two elements can contrast and complement each other at the same time.
You can maintain an open look for your bathroom and still have enough storage by adding a small unit above the vanity, just under the mirror. It can be a simple open shelf or a unit with tiny drawers for little things that need storage such as q-tips, makeup products, napkins and other things.
In a lot of cases, the vanity and the sink are treated as a set and thus are chosen to perfectly match the complement each other. This particular design featured the sink in perfect continuation of the vanity. The design conceals the sink as a part of the vanity itself and was possible because of the simplicity of both designs.
Contrasts are beautiful if used in a stylish manner. A wooden vanity with a dark stained finish can contrast with a white counter top and sink. This creates a clear distinction between the two elements and the combination is also very elegant and versatile, integrating well in a lot of decors.
A similar combination is also featured here, the only difference being the size of the vanity.
Add a rustic touch to a modern bathroom with a vanity made of reclaimed wood or with a distressed finish. It can be a DIY project, a store-bought piece or a custom design. Either way, the design would have to be simple to allow the material and finish to stand out. You can complement the vanity with a sleek and modern sink or washbasin.
Simplicity can take many different forms, each beautiful in its own way. Modern vanities at experts at perfectly combining looks and function. This model includes built-in side shelves and a lean and clean front panel with an angled shape means to give the vanity a sculptural look.
A similar design is here emphasized by wall-mounted mirrors that light up from behind. This soft glow is pleasing to the eye and creates a warm and comfortable ambiance in the room.
Although white sinks are the most common, black can be a stylish alternative. There’s a bit more flexibility if you choose a washbasin instead of a sink. A black washbasin can be placed on a matching counter, giving the vanity an elegant and sophisticated look.
