We are going to guess that you have a basic vanity in your bathroom and that it has a sink and a counter on top with drawers and doors on the bottom. Well, don’t you think that it is time to do something dramatic in your bathroom and make a statement with a new unique vanity? Nearly any other piece of furniture can be turned into a vanity with the right amount of imagination and skill!
Here are 6 unique items that can be your next vanity:
Art Cabinets, Map Cabinets, or Blueprint Cabinets
All these cabinets have lots of shallow drawers, but the size is perfect for holding two sinks on top. The drawers may need to be customized for them to be usable to fit your needs, but it may be worth it for the look that it provides in your bathroom.
Most antique desks served the same purpose as current desks, as they were meant to be sat at to do work. Well, these desks work fabulously as a vanity, because the center is open for the plumbing and the drawers on the sides work well for storage.
Attaching numerous filing cabinets together and topping them with a countertop and sinks can create a beautiful yet rustic vanity. The drawers are deep enough to provide ample storage in your bathroom and if you place enough next to each other, the length allows for ample surface space as well.
A sideboard or buffet piece is normally found in a dining room, but it can complement your bathroom wonderfully. Have a sink installed on top, by simply setting it on top, and have the faucet come out of the wall, so that the sideboard does not get damaged.
A console table does not always need to be delegated to the living room, hallway, or entry hall. Most of these tables have an open shelf on the bottom, which is perfect for storing towels or baskets filled with everyday items. The drawers can also be used for storage and you can choose whether to install one or two sinks, depending on the size of the table.
Chest of Drawers
If you suddenly find that you have too many chests of drawers in your home, or you find the perfect one in a thrift store, you can use it in your bathroom as a vanity. You can insert a sink and faucet and then use the drawers for storage.
