5 classic bathroom vanities to add to your next remodel

Bathrooms see you at your best and at your worst. From the grogginess of early mornings to pre-dinner glam, this space has seen it all. Since you spend so much time in there sprucing up, it’s important that your bathroom is pleasing and relaxing. One of the central features of this spot is the big bathroom mirror, so adding a classic bathroom vanity is an impactful way to make a stylish statement.

A beautiful vanity draws the eye when you enter the bathroom, making it an excellent opportunity to create some visual interest and add some character. We’ve pulled together five of our favorite vanities to provide some inspiration as you customize your own.

The 56.6″ Benchwright Single Sink Vanity from Pottery Barn

Sometimes, you just have to do something nice for yourself. The Benchwright Single Sink Vanity does just that. The solid poplar wood is extremely durable, and the industrial-style hardware makes for a luxe design that still has some softness. This vanity comes in five different finishes, so you can choose which stain will fit best with your existing decor. As a finishing touch, a white ceramic sink nestles into the glossy marble top for a clean, polished surface.

No need to be concerned about storage space either. This heavy-duty console comes with a spacious shelf and multiple drawers. The whole piece is finished with a moisture-resistant overcoat, which is a must for any bathroom.

James Martin Mercer Island 72″ Single Vanity

For a more modern alternative, we recommend the James Martin Mercer Island 72″ Single Vanity. This solid oak wall-mounted vanity floats well above the floor which increases visible floor space and makes the room appear larger. The contemporary style is complete with two USB outlets so you can charge your devices as you get ready. Moreover, its 72-in countertop has more than enough space to house your towels, candles, or skincare tools.

Of course, there’s plenty of cabinet space, as well as drawers with brushed nickel handles and a bamboo organizer. The soft-close doors and drawers also ensure you won’t bother others in the home with the sound of slamming doors all day.

James Martin Columbia 72″ Single Vanity

If your bathroom is in dire need of organization, look no further than the James Martin Columbia 72″ Single Vanity. This freestanding style has two wide shelves, three drawers, and one cabinet, so it can hold all your extra towels, slippers, haircare tools, and anything else you need to keep close by. This vanity is also high-tech, including two USB ports so you can conveniently charge your phone.

Andover Hills Modena 24″ Vanity Set

The Andover Hills Modena 24″ Single Bathroom Vanity Set is ideal for those who prefer a more traditional look. The solid poplar unit boasts clean lines and a no-fuss style. It’s more compact than the above options, featuring a single cabinet and drawer, so it’s perfect for smaller bathrooms. That being said, it still has enough storage for your bathroom essentials. It also comes with a rectangular ceramic sink to top off the contemporary style.

The whole vanity is available in four different colors: antique coffee, white, and blue. These neutral colors will pair naturally with a variety of bathroom color schemes, so there’s no need to redecorate to match the new furnishing.

Design Element Mason 30″ Single Sink Bathroom Vanity

An even simpler modern vanity is the Design Element Mason 30″ Single Sink Bathroom Vanity. Constructed of solid hardwood, it has a porcelain countertop and rectangular sink. For space, it features two functional drawers with simple silver hardware. This vanity also comes in two different sizes and three different colors, so you can easily customize it to fit the needs of your needs.

Interesting vanity ideas

Bathroom cabinets should be functional pieces of furniture that keep the room well organized and clutter-free. It’s never a bad idea to find a cabinet that checks all these boxes and adds a touch of personality to the room too.

Regardless of the size of your bathroom, you can find a vanity that can become the centerpiece of your bathroom design. With any of the options above, you can ensure that your bathroom space is well-thought-out and aesthetically pleasing whether it’s your own private oasis or a place for guests to refresh.
