As you may already be aware, the bathroom vanity refers to the sink and storage area that surrounds it, which is very much a focal point of the room, and whatever style you are into, the vanity is an essential component that must blend perfectly with the rest of the room. If you are soon to revamp your bathroom, here are some unique vanity ideas to give you some inspiration.
➢ Alcove Vanity – If your bathroom is limited for space and you have a recess or alcove, you can use a sleek wall to wall vanity, with adequate storage space underneath and a full width mirror. This is easy to keep clean, as there are no doors, merely stone shelves under the sink.

➢ A Vintage Furniture Piece – If you have decided on a period bathroom, why not source a vintage piece that is both a sink and storage provider in a single item of furniture? If you are into DIY, source an old desk and you can transform it to be a great vanity that has character. Elegant mirrors can complement the look, as would a Victorian bath tub.

➢ The Corner Vanity – As with the alcove variety, a corner vanity is a real space saver and having two mirrors that meet in the centre, this gives the impression the room is much larger than it really is.

Stone is an ideal material for a corner vanity, or alternatively, timber also works.
