Student desk. This simple desk provides all that is needed for a bathroom vanity with three side drawers and counter space. The white undermount basin prevents the single drawer from being used, but the granite top with ledge provides plenty of surface space and protects the wood.
Add a pretty pattern. We’re getting braver when it comes to pattern on our floors. A vintage- or Moroccan-style tile can look fantastic in a bathroom. It adds welcome contrast to an all-white room, and it means that the rest of a room doesn’t have to work so hard to look stylish. Here, a pretty vintage-look pattern pairs with a black border, which grounds the design and adds a traditional touch.
The ombré trend isn’t loved by everyone, but this tile wall might quell even its toughest critics. Fading from dark gray to nearly white, it connects the floors and the walls while opening up the space in an elegant, subtle way.
A bathroom vanity needn’t be straight out of the shop or supplied by a manufacturer or cabinetmaker. Indeed, thinking outside the square can turn up a one-of-a-kind vanity with character and function to boot. Sideboards, desks and cabinets — whether new or used — can all be repurposed to provide storage and surface space.
