Smart Bathroom and Vanity Ideas

The bathroom is certainly the most occupied room in the house, particularly in the morning when everybody is hurrying around to begin the day! In the morning, your bathroom may consist of children getting ready for school while parents are getting ready for work, all at the same time. While designing your bathroom vanity, we will help you to pay attention to functionality and ease of use along with style and finishes, to ultimately give you a bathroom that is practical and beautiful and that you can enjoy for many years.

Here’s our list of smart bathroom vanity ideas that you may want to use in your design:

1. Open Shelving
Integrating open shelving into your vanity allows you to keep towels within easy reach and they render a classy look creating a spa-like feel in your bathroom. With open plan living becoming wildly popular, so has open shelving in the past 12+ months, and this is no different when it comes to the bathroom as well!

2. Creating More Space
Acquire more bench space by having your vanity benchtop go over the end of the bath. The underneath space can be utilised to keep your beauty products in a beautiful basket or your kid’s bath toys.

3. Efficient Storage
Storage is an essential component in your bathroom just like any other room in your home. When designing your bathroom vanity, you’ll need to consider all of the things that you need to store in your bathroom vanity such as shampoos, shower gels, cleaning products, toilet rolls etc. Therefore, planning cautiously for practical storage avoids future clutter and mess as everything has a “home” within the storage component.

4. Floating or Wall-Mounted
A wall-mounted or floating vanity is an excellent way to make a small room feel more spacious as a space will feel larger when you’re able to see more floor space in a room. Floating or wall-mounted positioning really suits a modern bathroom design too!

5. Drawers
Drawers are a brilliant way of making extra user-friendly storage in your bathroom. It’s important to have a design that is easy to open and close in your space, as well as having adequate storage inside the drawers. Thanks to sophisticated, handleless push-to-open technology, your bathroom cabinets and drawers can be easily opened and closed with just the touch of a hand. Inside the drawers, make permanent divisions or you can buy drawer inserts to share the space to hold all the small pieces that you may want to keep such as moisturisers, make-up, nail polish, imitation jewellery etc.

6. Mirror Cabinets
A smart way of making intelligent storage is to have a cabinet with mirror doors on the wall that is above your vanity. This creates a very sleek look that’s having a ‘secret’ storage.
You don’t have to choose between practicality and attractive or stylish designs, you can incorporate sophisticated storage concepts that provide plenty of space in your bathroom.
