When designing your home, be sure not to ignore your bathroom. Many homeowners mistakenly think that there’s no need to design such a small area that only serves as a function of cleaning. The bathroom should feel like an extension of the rest of your home, not just a space for cleaning oneself. Consider adding a touch of elegance to your bathroom space by using one of the following vanity designs.
Adding pilaster-style legs to the vanity cabinets to lift them off of the ground gives your vanity the look of a classic piece of furniture. Add other elements such as detailed feet and varying heights to create a unique-looking vanity that looks like it would be at home in the living room. If you don’t like the idea of lifting the vanity off the ground, use furniture base molding to provide a similar effect.
Use Actual Furniture
Instead of styling your vanities to look like furniture, you can also use actual furniture pieces or antiques, such as an old desk. Not only does furniture like a desk help your vanity stand apart from the more standard designs, it will also provide you with a helpful desk drawers that can be used to hold toiletries and the other small necessities that clutter the more common vanity cabinets. If you prefer a more open look, you can also use a small table with a deep apron that will hide the plumbing of a drop-in sink. Another piece of furniture that you could put to use as a vanity is a dresser. A dresser will fit a smaller space better than a desk, but will also provide more storage space then a table.
