The bathroom vanity is the cabinet that holds the sink and provides counter space for your grooming necessities. Not all bathrooms have vanities, but if yours does, it is probably one of the fixtures that sees the most use and it is also one of the main focal points when you enter the bathroom. When you decide to have bathroom renovations in Vaughan, an attractive, functional vanity should be one of your top priorities. Here are some current trends in vanity design and décor to consider.
Obviously, you should always keep the bathroom vanity sanitary in the interest of safety and hygiene, but in the context of interior design, that’s not what “clean” means. A clean look for a bathroom vanity involves neutral colours, straight lines, and minimal details. Clean design is integral to modern and contemporary interior design schemes, but it is not confined to them. For example, the hygge style is strongly influenced by Scandinavian (particularly Danish) culture and strives to balance simplicity with comfort. A bathroom vanity that is clean without being severe, such as a Shaker-style cabinet, would fit in well with this design aesthetic.
Vintage is a versatile design aesthetic because its definition can be interpreted very broadly. Essentially, anything that is older than 20 years can be considered vintage. Therefore, your vintage bathroom style could emulate the 1980s or the 19th century. On the other hand, that doesn’t mean that a hodgepodge of different elements from various time periods is an effective vintage decorating scheme for your bathroom. Before you begin, you should probably narrow the décor down to a specific decade.
Having narrowed down your vintage design scheme, one way to make it effective is to include authentic flourishes from that time. Antique furniture, such as buffets and dressers, can be repurposed into an attractive vanity. If that sounds like too much, you can choose a new cabinet that reflects the style of the time period you wish to emulate. For example, if you wanted a Victorian style for your bathroom, you would choose a vanity with lots of ornate carvings, possibly with gold-coloured accents.
Natural wood fits in well with most vintage design schemes. Depending on the decade, it may be painted or unpainted.
Colours, even neutral shades, can be classified as either warm or cool. Until recently, cooler colours were more fashionable in the bathroom. There are a couple of possible reasons for this. For example, bathrooms tend to be small, and cool colours make them feel bigger. Cool colours may make the bathroom feel more refreshing.
Nevertheless, starting at the end of 2021, warm tones started to replace cooler ones as the prevailing bathroom colour trend. Warm tones can be cozy and comforting, which may account for the shift. More specifically, the trend is toward warm-tinged neutral, including shades such as espresso brown, terracotta, and beige. Gray is a popular colour for the bathroom and has been for many years, but the trend now is toward warmer grays.
While marble doesn’t fit into a hygge style, it is compatible with the other trends discussed here. Marble can enhance a clean look and can fit in well with many vintage looks, especially those dating to the 19th century or early. While marble tends to be cool to the touch, it comes in many different colours, some of which are warm-tinged. A marble countertop for your vanity is both durable and luxurious. The upfront cost can be great, but the marble may last a lifetime or longer and can yield a good return on investment if you decide to sell your home. An entire vanity made of marble would be impractical, but a marble countertop pairs attractively with a warm-toned wooden cabinet.
