From small powder rooms to large primary retreats, bathrooms have become one of the most essential areas of the home. What was once a space we spent little time in has now evolved into a haven for self-care! They are a room to get ready in and start the day on a positive tone, a room to unwind and wash worries away while taking time to pamper and relax.
If your bathroom needs a small refresh that will invite spa-like vibes or a small dose of personality to match your style, read on as we share style tips and enhancements to create a dreamy bathroom vanity.
Start with a Strong Foundation
As the focal point of the bathroom, a vanity should demand attention and immediately catch the eye. A great way to achieve this is by updating old cabinetry with custom details like captivating trim. Or, if you’re feeling bold, try colored cabinets in vibrant shades of blue or green, a popular choice for bathrooms.
Accentuate the Cabinets
Now that you have a solid base, it’s time to elevate the look of your cabinetry with statement-making hardware. With thousands of pieces to choose from, our line of decorative hardware completes the look of any design scheme, from edgy and modern to soft and delicate. If you’d like to enhance your bathroom even further, our bath collections feature a range of towel rings and bars, tissue holders and hooks that complement our knobs and that are sure to create a beautiful balance between form and function.
Visually Expand with a Mirror
Mirrors have a powerful effect on bathrooms of all sizes. They create an optical illusion that can make a room appear larger than it is. If space allows, we suggest hanging an oversized mirror above the vanity or opting for two floating mirrors. This will offer more reflective surface space that can instantly brighten up darker bathrooms that have little to no natural light.
Add Biophilic Elements
There’s nothing more serene than inviting nature into the bathroom. Incorporating organic elements into built environments has been proven to reduce stress, enhance the mood, and purify the air. Adding a small potted plant, fresh florals or a candle full of natural fragrant scents are perfect for introducing nature to your bathroom.
Accessorize, Accessorize, Accessorize
Just like an outfit, all designs should be accompanied by accessories, and our favorite way to garnish a vanity is with functional pieces. Decorative trays, glass jars and small drawers are beautiful on their own but even better for storing everyday items while maintaining a chic style. We also love adorning vanity countertops with perfume bottles. They establish a luxurious aesthetic and allow you to end your time in the bathroom with a quick refreshing mist.
Illuminate with Lighting
No bathroom is complete without optimal lighting and intricate sconces have quickly become one of the hottest trends in bathroom design. With proper placement next to the mirror, these pretty pendants make getting ready a breeze!
Bonus tip: Pair your lighting and decorative hardware finishes for a cohesive design. With over 30 finish options we offer an extensive selection of knobs, pulls and hooks to match any bathroom fixture!
