Looking for a way to add instant character to your powder room or full bath? Opt for a vanity that looks like a piece of furniture from another area of your home. Dressers, desks and even entertainment units are finding new homes in the bathroom because their original designs include many features that work well for a personal grooming space.
Dresser duplicates are obvious choices, as their wide, waist-height counters can accommodate both a sink as well as a variety of personal toiletries. They also come with built-in drawers for instant storage.
Desk-style vanities may or may not include a washbasin, but they allow the user to sit and relax as he or she grooms. Like dresser-style vanities, designs also include plentiful storage space but often come with smaller drawers, which may or may not be an asset to the user.
Vanities posing as entertainment units put the focus on the person in the mirror, not on a television set or stereo system. With a large mirror surrounded by plentiful cabinet space, this all-in-one style can be bought or built to any specifications and can work for any size bathroom.
