Bathroom Vanities: Classic and Contemporary

Your bathroom vanity area can make the difference between a good bathroom and a great bathroom. Today we're going to explore a few bathroom vanities for your home.

I found the one pictured above to be one of the most unique I've seen.  It's the first time I've seen a double vessel sink.  Looks pretty neat, I think.  And I like vanities that provide plenty of counter space and storage space, and this one definitely does that.  And it's just a got a fun, contemporary appeal.


As far as the smaller vanities go, I really liked this this one.  I love cherry wood anyway, and this piece (as well as the one shown here ) reminds me a lot of hand built antique dressers I have in my home. Very simple and classic!


And here's another one with antique appeal.  This one is an antique cherry vanity.  I don't think I've ever seen a vanity that looked so elegance as this.  The claw feet and the detail work from top to bottom really had a lot to this piece.     


This vanity is a lot closer to what I think of when I hear the word vanity. It's just basic and simple, but I think this one also has contemporary apeal to it. (I think it's the color, or maybe it's the handles.)  I really like the marble top on this one, and again, I like the counter and storage space options.


I'd really like your opinion on these vanities that feature the vessel sinks.  Maybe I'm behind the times, but I'd never seen one of these (except at a resturant) until a few weeks ago when one of my Friday Favorites participants posted about one they had installed.  I'm not sure if I'd ever get one of these, but I do think they look neat.  And I completely understand the appeal.  Perhaps I'd put one in a guest bathroom or a kid's bathroom.  What do you guys think? 



And here's another contemporary style (and I would say, very unique) vanity.  Here again, we have a vessel sink, although I think it would be a lot easier to get use to one like this.  In my opinion, it's really not that different from your traditional vanities.  I think this would be a great choice for someone who wanted to go with something a little different and current, but didn't really like the look of the other vessel sinks (or if you like the vessel sinks but you fear you'd grow tired of them after a a while). 


And finally this Avanty Oriental vanity also features the vessel sink.  I've browsed through several of these, and I'm intrigued.  I just think these look really cool.  Maybe it's just because it's new and different from everything else I've seen? Whatever the case, I guess I'd say if you're looking for something new for your bathroom, and you want to go with something trendy and current, this may be the way to go.

    Hi

    Unfortunately I have some sad news about Rosie from Baking Cakes Galore, Rosie passed away yesterday. I have written up a tribute to her on my blog and I am asking everyone who knew her if they would please take some time to leave a comment. I will be printing off all the comments to pass onto her husband.

    Thanks
    Maria
