Bathroom Vanities with Tops

March 9th, 2015

After the shower turned out so well at Grandma’s house we decided the vanity looked a little shabby in comparison so I went on the hunt for a bathroom vanity with a top that would fit the space (48-54"). With some research I found one with a marble top to complement the marble tile in the shower.

When complete the bathroom will have a contemporary gray and white palette just like the kitchen. The house will be put on the market at the end of the month so I made choices that are universally appealing in a transitional style.

As a reminder here is the "before" with the upgrades that will be installed below.

Many modern free standing vanities have furniture style feet which often means you have to replace the flooring as well if removing an older cabinet version. We’re in the same boat so we’re installing vinyl plank flooring underneath the new vanity.

I rounded up more single sink vanities in styles wider than the more petite powder room sized vanities I linked to a few weeks ago if you’re planning a bathroom refresh!

Hello friends, welcome to another weekend! We’re celebrating my son’s birthday today (he is 9 already!) then I’m headed to Las Vegas for a few days to check on the pool remodel at the fixer house, coordinate with a countertop fabricator, and shop for tile for the kitchen backsplash, much to do! I’ll be visiting with my parents and some cousins so that will be relaxing and fun. I’ve rounded up some inspiring projects from around the web in the Best of the Blogosphere series, enjoy!
