Make your storage do double duty as decor. While the vanity cabinet in this 2016 National Kitchen + Bath Association Competition winning powder room is custom made, a standard vanity without doors on either side can add decorative storage to any small bathroom, says designer Stephanie A. Bruntz of Studio B Design. Bruntz says the diagonal slats in her custom cabinet are one of the more expensive elements, so adding a horizontal shelf or no shelf at all would be much cheaper. She adds that a stylish pendant can also create a designer look without breaking the bank. You can buy frosted mini glass pendants at Home Depot for under $20, while regular sizes range from $80-$100.
Two large towers sit above the vanity in this contemporary bathroom, providing extra storage space. The mirrored towers match the dark wood of the cabinets below, making them feel cohesive with the space.
On either side of the large vanity, designers upped the storage space by adding storage towers. With their elegant, dark stain, the towers not only add storage, but also add warm color, height and dimension to the space.
This spacious double vanity bathroom includes a dark brown wooden vanity with a convenient storage tower that separates the two sink areas. A three-light fixture hangs above each of the round mirrors, while neutral granite countertops complete the look of the space.
This master bathroom features a double sink vanity with dark brown wooden cabinets and neutral granite countertops. A convenient storage tower sits between the three-light fixtures and round mirrors that are positioned above each sink, while neutral floor tiles complete the look of the space.
This master bathroom, part of a 50s ranch-style home, was gutted to open up its dark, cramped spaces. Now, pale gray marble and white walls set a bright, airy feel, punctuated by the zip of blue cabinets. For more storage, the designer added a shallow cabinet tower.
This light gray and white bathroom features a cherry wood double vanity with a neutral countertop. Two globe pendant lights and a pair of circular mirrors are positioned in front of a gray mosaic backsplash, while a counter-to-ceiling storage tower provides space for stowing bathroom essentials.
In the bedroom, a neutral palette with bits of glimmer is always a winning combination. Here, a tropical-inspired bedroom is uplifted by silver and bronze textiles with a subtle sheen. Dark wood furniture and the towering palm top off the polished look.
Traditional shaded sconces provide light in this neutral bathroom. Built-in storage under the sink and in the dark wood wall cabinet help keep the space tidy and frame the large mirror. The marble countertop creates a nice contrast against the smooth, dark wood.
