Finding the Right Vanity for Your Style

Your bathroom vanity serves as the centerpiece of your bathroom’s style and design. More than just functional storage, it makes a statement about your personality and aesthetic preferences. Choosing the perfect vanity that aligns with your desired look is an important decision that sets the tone for your whole bathroom.

The right vanity can elevate your space from drab to dramatic. It influences the ambiance, brings visual interest, and makes getting ready each day a more enjoyable experience. With an abundance of options for materials, sizes, configurations, and finishes, you’re sure to find a vanity that complements your unique style.

Whether you prefer traditional or contemporary, rustic or glam, your vanity should reflect your personal taste and harmonize with the overall bathroom design. At International Bath and Tile we can help you select the best vanity for your bathroom.

Understanding Your Needs

When it comes to bathroom vanities, one size definitely does not fit all. With your bathroom space, you have ample options when selecting your vanity. Keep reading as we explore the diverse range of vanities available to perfectly fit your bathroom.

Space Constraints

When choosing a new bathroom vanity, it’s crucial to consider the amount of space you have available. This is especially important for small bathrooms, where every inch counts. Compact vanities with slender profiles or corner-fit designs can help maximize your layout.

Before shopping, carefully measure the area where you plan to install the vanity. Make note of the width, depth, and height. This will help you identify vanities that will fit the existing footprint without overwhelming the room.

For the tightest bathrooms, a wall-mounted floating vanity can be an ideal option to save space since it eliminates bulky cabinetry below. Vessel sinks on top of a narrow ledge also minimize the vanity’s depth. Just be sure to have storage elsewhere to make up for the lack of vanity cabinets and drawers. With some creative planning, even the smallest bathrooms can accommodate a stylish vanity.

Storage Needs

When selecting a bathroom vanity, it’s important to consider your storage needs. Under-sink storage allows you to neatly organize toiletries and keep them out of sight but within easy reach. Look for a vanity with a cabinet that makes good use of the space, with adjustable shelves or slide-out trays.

Drawers are also useful for providing storage for towels, hair styling tools, and other bathroom accessories. The number and size of drawers can vary greatly between vanity styles. Consider how much you need to store and choose a vanity with an adequate number of sizable drawers. Soft-closing drawer glides allow the drawers to shut quietly and smoothly.

Optimize your bathroom storage by selecting a vanity that can accommodate everything you need to store. Under-sink cabinets and drawers keep items organized and accessible while maintaining a tidy look.

At International Bath and Tile, we carry a diverse selection of vanities, including sizes, styles, and configurations to accommodate different needs.

Exploring Vanity Styles

When selecting a bathroom vanity, it’s important to consider your personal style preferences. Do you gravitate towards traditional styles with ornate details and classic lines? Or are you drawn to contemporary designs with clean, minimalist aesthetics? Thinking about the look you want to achieve can help narrow down your options.

Traditional vanities often feature decorative legs, raised panel doors, and crown molding details. Materials like wood, marble, and granite lend a timeless, elegant feel. This style pairs nicely with vintage fixtures or ceramic tile.

Contemporary vanities have a sleek, modern design. Many feature simple slab drawer fronts and straight, boxy silhouettes. Metals, glass, and lacquer finishes give a streamlined look. This style complements wall-mounted faucets and vessel sinks.

Beyond traditional versus contemporary, also think about your color palette. A white vanity provides a fresh, bright look and pairs with any style. Wood tones add warmth, while black makes a dramatic statement.

Most importantly, choose a vanity that aligns with your personal taste. It’s the focal point of the room, so opt for a style that makes you happy. Coordinate with other fixtures and finishes to create a cohesive aesthetic. With the wide selection at International Bath and Tile, you’re sure to find the perfect vanity to match your style.

Vanity Shapes

When choosing a bathroom vanity, one of the most important considerations is the shape that will best fit your space and needs. Here are some of the most common vanity shapes to consider:

Rectangular Vanities

Rectangular vanities are the most traditional and common shape. They maximize storage space and often have more countertop space as well. Rectangular vanities work well in most bathroom layouts and are especially well-suited to small or narrow bathrooms. They can be placed against a wall or used as a centerpiece in the room.

Oval Vanities

Oval vanities offer a softer, curvier aesthetic compared to rectangular vanities. Their rounded edges help open up smaller bathrooms. Oval vanities are ideal for powder rooms or other small spaces. They provide ample storage while taking up less linear space against the wall.

Corner Vanities

Corner vanities are excellent choices for maximizing space in a small or awkwardly laid out bathroom. They tuck neatly into corners, using areas that may otherwise go unused. Corner vanities come in a range of angles to fit different spaces. Some have pie-cut designs to optimize the corner area.

At our showroom, we carry many different vanities with many features:

Drawers vs Cabinets

Drawers offer easy access to items as they pull out and can be organized with dividers. However, cabinets provide more storage space, especially for deeper items. The ideal vanity combines both drawers and cabinet doors.

At International Bath and Tile, vanities feature full extension drawers on smooth metal glides for maximum access. Soft-close mechanisms prevent slamming.

Pull-Out Trays

Pull-out trays in corner cabinets or other tight spaces are great for maximizing storage. Trays slide out fully to access items in the back that would normally be hard to reach.

Pull-out trays can hold towels, toiletries, cleaning supplies, and more. Some even have built-in organization features like adjustable dividers.

Hidden Storage

Look for vanities that incorporate secret hidden storage areas, like behind mirrors or in open toe kick space.

Hidden drawers blend seamlessly into the vanity design. Use them to tuck away valuables or rarely-used items to keep the main storage clutter-free.

Integrated Sinks

Integrated sinks are built directly into the vanity countertop, creating a seamless and stylish look.
