Now more than ever, vanity trends are becoming an important design factor in bathroom renovations. With so many styles to choose from, finding the right vanity trend for your bathroom can seem like an endless search for perfection. Whether you’re in the middle of a renovation or are just looking for some inspiration, take a look at our 5 favourite bathroom vanity trends for 2019 to make your decision process a little easier.
1. Double Sink Vanity
For those who have the space and want an opulent feel, double vanities are the way to go. Depending on the material and colour, double vanities can look very chic. We love the use of trendy dark blue on this double vanity. As an added bonus, double sinks also help morning routines as you and your partner can get ready at the same time.
If you love the idea of a double vanity but aren’t sure if it will fit, custom is always an option. Keep in mind that double vanities come with double the price tag, and additional plumbing could be an issue. Be sure to speak to a bathroom renovation pro before you set your heart on a double vanity.
2. Furniture Inspired Vanity
We’ve seen repurposed cabinets before, but this trend takes it to a new level. One big trend you’re sure to start noticing this year is the use of furniture you would find in other rooms used as vanities. Say good-bye to traditional cabinets and hello to pieces that look like they could be a dresser, desk or credenza. This look is particularly popular with those who favour a retro-inspired or mid-century look. Speak to a pro about how to turn your old dresser into your new bathroom vanity.
3. Grey Vanity
It’s no surprise that grey vanities are trending big in 2019. The benefits of grey are making their way from the rest of the home into the bathroom. Grey is subtle and neutral but still modern. It’s a great option for a bathroom because it goes with any other colour and looks great for a long time. You can’t go wrong with grey, especially if you’re considering resale value. For a quick and inexpensive transformation, have your current vanity repainted grey and see what a difference it makes.
4. Floating Vanity
Floating vanities are a great option for any sized bathroom but they make a particular impact on small layouts. Designed to not go all the way to the floor, floating vanities help create the appearance of more space, making your bathroom feel lighter. They actually take up less space because you are able to stand closer to the sink while using it. If you have a cramped bathroom, a floating vanity might be just what you’re looking for. As an added bonus, floating vanities are often less expensive to build and install.
5. Wood Vanity
A vanity made of wood is a great option to add natural texture into your bathroom. Rustic yet chic, wood can help add character and warmth to any bathroom. Its versatility means can be used in any style and cut to any shape. We love the combination of reclaimed wood with concrete sinks as pictured above. If you’re looking for a more modern look, try white oak for a feel that is casual and welcoming. Connect with a carpenter if you want to add a custom wood vanity to your bathroom.
Now that you have a better idea of the 2019 trends, the hardest part is deciding which one is right for your bathroom. If you’re unsure of which style will fit your space best, you can always reach out to a pro and get their expert opinion.
