The bathroom counter has a tendency to become a bland and cluttered space. Not quite able to hold enough items, products get shoved into every corner until company comes, and then it gets shoved into a drawer. But here is a growing trend that is really taking off: vanity conversions.
What Is a Vanity Conversion?
This is when you remove the traditional counter top and convert it into a beautiful, interesting vanity instead. It can take any number of forms, which is part of the reason it has become such a popular option. You can use your imagination to form the perfectly designed vanity that will transform your entire bathroom into a beautifully creative space.
Here are just a few examples of what designers have been coming up with:
Reclaimed Wood Floating Vanity – Repurposing already used wood is a great way around cost and material waste, and this floating vanity shows how attractive the end result can be. Notice the way they have brought out the natural grain in the wood, and while it has a finished look it isn’t overly done.
Antique Table Vanity – Not all old things have to look distressed. This vanity uses an antique table that has been polished and maintained. Notice how it stands along, and has so much empty space under the bottom. But the length of the table offers plenty of surface space. The rich wood is gorgeous, especially with the flowers next to the sink. This could be done with almost any table, as well.
Try Separating Your Double Vanity – Why cram two sinks onto one counter top when two distinct, freestanding pieces look beautiful side by side?
Go Crazy With Color – A vanity is a fun place to add lots of color or draw the eye with pattern. By keeping the rest of the space mellow with neutrals, you can go as wild as you’d like with a fun vanity.
