Bathroom Vanities with Tops

Monday, 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!

Bathroom Vanity + Mirror Medleys

Monday, February 16th, 2015

Now that the kitchen remodel is underway, I thought I’d turn my attention to the hall bathroom since we’re trying to finish up the reno by summer. It’s time to remove the plain builder mirror, light fixture, and old sink vanity (which is falling apart) and replace with a free standing vanity and mirror combo.

This is the upstairs hall bathroom which is used by kids and guests; it’s a windowless space so I’m going to keep it light and cheerful in here. That little shelf above the toilet will go, I envision a mirror and vanity on the left, on the right a new toilet with some colorful art above.

I had my heart set on this green Keys vanity but after I measured I realized it’s too big for my space, I’ll have to find something no wider than 32", perhaps the smaller Savoy in gray or aqua, or another that I paint a fresh fun hue. My research turned up so many other attractive free standing vanities and stylish mirrors so I created a few combinations for powder rooms and small bathrooms to inspire.

Imagine them with a wall treatment behind like board and batten or a fab wallpaper, and as we all know, if you like the shape but not the color of the vanity, you can always paint it and swap out the hardware for a more personalized look.
