Dated, contractor-grade vanities can instantly take new shape with the addition of glossy white paint and classic drawer pulls. In its original state, this tiny boy's bathroom featured a low-end cherry vanity as well as drawers and door fronts void of any hardware at all. After one coat of primer and two coats of ultra-white latex paint in a semigloss finish, the old vanity instantly appears new.
Pastel blue subway tile adds a soft color over white countertop and built in sink with stainless steel faucet. Woodgrain cabinetry add a warmer hue to the bright color scheme. A stainless steel stool with white leather cushion tucks under the counter or pulls out for a stylish vanity stool.

In this sleek East Hampton bath, designer Joe Eisner used contrasting colors and materials in his storage-rich design. He says, “the canopy over the vanity is supported by a storage tower with drawer and open shelving on the left side. The mosaic wall to the right of the vanity separates the vanity from the shower enclosure. The L-shaped shampoo shelf cutout in the mosaic wall is referenced in the L-shaped cutout cabinet pulls of the white lacquer vanity cabinet doors.”
Gray wood-look tile for the walls and floors crisply contrasts the white vanity in this spa bathroom for a look that's chic and luxurious. The circular drawer and cabinet pulls have a whimsical appeal.
To transform their dingy and outdated laundry room into a bright and modern-day utility space, design blogger Erin Loechner and her husband, Ken, renovated the entire room from top to bottom sans contractor. They added wood-paneled walls, enclosed shelves above the washer and dryer, tiled flooring, a concrete vanity countertop, custom pendants and handcrafted details, like leather cabinet pulls. Now, the space appears stylish and homespun but 100 percent functional.
