Sleek and sophisticated, this custom vanity is stocked with storage options. Designer Tracy Black designed this elegant, oversized piece, which measures an eye-catching nine feet long and 25 inches deep. "A vanity is so much more practical and functional with deep drawers instead of just doors," she says.

In the shower area, the walls are covered in off-white tile with a penny round tile inset that matches the backsplash to tie the space together.
