This guide will provide tips to design your own bathroom vanity. For many homeowners, the bathroom is one of the most personal spaces in their home. It’s where we do our daily rituals and get ready for work, social events, and so much more. When you design your own custom bathroom vanity remodel, it helps to think about what you need from it and what you want it to look like. 


How to Design Your Own Bathroom Vanity

Double Sinks

There are many benefits to having a double sink in your bathroom. Double sinks provide an opportunity for two people to get ready at once. This is especially useful if you have a spouse, roommates, frequent guests, or children with whom you share a bathroom. Additionally, you get to enjoy your own sink and have all of your toiletries in your own designated space. 

Charging Stations

Do you have a bunch of bathroom utilities, such as an electric toothbrush/shaver, hairdryer, hair wand, curling iron, or even a small TV screen or Bluetooth speaker? What about the need to charge your phone while you get ready to go out? Be sure to install a charging station for all these reasons and more! A great addition to a bathroom vanity is plenty of plugs to accommodate all of your bathroom tools. There’s no need to worry about running out of plugs when there are more than two outlets. You can even include USB options for a diversity of appliances. There’s also the convenience of having all your appliances within arm’s reach when getting ready for the day or night ahead.

Backlit Mirrors

Backlit mirrors are an elegant and gorgeous addition to your vanity. It’s not always easy to see your reflection in the bathroom mirror. Depending on the time of day, the lighting may be too dim or too bright, and it can be difficult to see your reflection properly. A backlit mirror solves this problem by providing an even light source that casts no shadows. They help you get ready faster and easier in the morning because they are brighter and let you see yourself from all angles.

Medicine Cabinets

With all the items we have in our bathroom, it can be hard to keep them organized. From medicines to makeup and hair products, it seems like there is never enough room for everything. However, a medicine cabinet is an easy way to fix this problem! There are many benefits of having a medicine cabinet in your bathroom. For one, it gives you way more space for all of your things. Bathroom storage is always an issue, and a medicine cabinet is just the solution. Secondly, you will be able to organize your different products and see what you need at just a glance. Third, it will help reduce clutter in your bathroom and make it easier to clean. Finally, a medicine cabinet can give you peace of mind. You’ll know that all of your products are safe from children, and it also keeps your belongings more private.

Floating Cabinets or Shelves Below

Floating cabinets as part of your bathroom vanity are a great way to add a modern look. Floating cabinets are bolstered to the wall and allow for some clearance below the sink. This can create a neat space or provide a place for you to store towels or a wastebasket that is tucked out of the way. Another option is to have floating shelves below the sink for a minimalist look and to allow for easy reach for the things you need.
