The bathroom vanity is one of the most important pieces of furniture in your bathroom. On top of being the primary storage space, it’s also one of the most noticeable design elements of your bathroom.

First on our list is the Robern Sendai vanity. If you remember our 2023 Bathroom Design Trends article you’ll recognize some of these on-trend decisions. The Robern Sendai harmoniously pairs light oak wood with pewter nickel hardware that adds a warm and modern look to any bathroom. The Sendai vanity also has unique integrated chamfer pulls, where the drawers are indented so you don’t need to buy any additional hardware!
With the Robern Sendai you’ll also have the option to add a matching linen cabinet for additional storage for your bathroom essentials.
We recommend pairing this vanity with polished nickel faucets and lighting, to give your space a timeless and calming vibe. Adding a textured accent wall behind your vanity gives the room an elevated feel without taking attention away from the subtle accents of the vanity.
Trusty and Timeless
The Chestnut Hill vanity from Robern is a classic traditional vanity that can suit any bathroom. It’s also made to last, with a solid wood and veneer construction plus a durable, moisture-resistant polyurethane finish.
We recommend the Script faucet by Kallista as an excellent complement to this classic vanity, and they add a touch of luxury to the space. The Merion medicine cabinets from Robern also add stylish hidden storage space with a coordinating framed mirror.
The Perfect Contrast
We love it when a wall-mount vanity has the design versatility to blend into a wide variety of bathrooms. The Enivo wall-mounted vanity from Kohler is one such vanity option that can be styled in so many ways. The textured white finish harmonizes with the vessel sinks to create an interesting and clean look
The Lodern wall-mounted vanity from Kohler is another versatile wall-mount vanity that can fit many designs. The deep natural wood brings warmth to both modern and traditional rooms, while the brass Components faucets and black Occasion lighting create an updated mid-century modern feel with a touch of today’s luxury.
Open and Airy Style
The Bodo Vanity by Robern was inspired by a picturesque ski resort getaway and incorporates natural oak wood and open shelving for an upscale rustic charm. Paired with the thin framed wood mirrors, the design stays light and fresh.
Design Spotlight: Open Console
An open console vanity is a type of bathroom vanity that doesn’t have doors or drawers. Instead, it has open shelves that allow you to see and access your belongings. Open-console vanities are a popular choice for bathrooms because they’re functional, timeless, and fit perfectly in both traditional and contemporary bathrooms.
One of the biggest benefits of open console vanities is that they open the doors for your own design flavor. The open shelves allow you to display your towels, essentials, or unique accessories, creating a more visually appealing space.
Open console vanities are also very versatile and can be used in a variety of bathroom styles. They can be dressed up or down, depending on the overall look you’re going for. Check out all our open console options here!
This vignette is a great example of how to incorporate contemporary European styling to create a functional and minimalist space. The cubic details add a touch of modern refinement, echoed by the large medicine cabinet above it. Sleek and simple single-hole faucets keep the visual clutter to a minimum.
This may be the most traditional vanity on our list! The Kohler Jacquard vanity is full of classic and timeless sophistication. We love how the dark vanity is paired with light pink and gray tile and wall accents for a fresh and inviting vibe. The dark-framed mirror completes the look and adds a touch of glamour.
Elevate Your Vanity
The Live Edge vanity from Fairmont Designs is a stunning example of the 2023 design trend of incorporating natural materials into our daily environment. The vanity is made of natural walnut, which has a warm and inviting appearance. The live edge of the vanity adds a touch of rustic charm, while the matte black accessories and hardware keep the look up to date.
The gray concrete tile on the wall behind the vanity also adds a touch of industrial style, while also grounding the vanity and keeping the natural feel of the room.
You’re not imagining it! Our last bathroom features the Sendai vanity by Robern again, this time in an oh-so-lovely dark oak and aged brass colorway. Of course, the coordinating linen cabinet matches perfectly, and bright brass Components faucets and Vorleigh lighting maintain the luxury feel and create a relaxing and inviting atmosphere.
