Have a roomy bathroom? Lucky you! Take advantage of the space and invest in an extra large vanity. You will never bemoan a lack of storage space!
There is one problem, though (everything has a trade-off, doesn’t it?): you’ll have to find a vanity that doesn’t look so mammoth while serving your needs. Here’s how:
Break it up
Get a vanity with varying heights or room for a bench or seat. Mixing cabinet doors and drawers, especially with the addition of some frosted glass, is an effective way to minimize the massiveness.
Hang two (or more) separate mirrors rather than one large mirror that would accentuate the size.
The empty space underneath a wall-mounted vanity makes the room appear bigger and, consequently, the vanity appear smaller.
A furniture-inspired sink chest looks more like a dresser – which is typically large – and less like a vanity.
Do away with drawers
Go with a few shelves or sliding or hinged panels rather than (or concealing) multiple drawers and cabinets. An abundance of pulls and knobs draws attention to the size of the vanity.
Make a statement
A dramatic vanity will garner more “oh wow”s than “why such a big vanity?”s.
