Vanity unit ideas to get your bathroom storage sorted

Do you always misplace your toiletries? If you’re ready to get your bathroom storage sorted, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve got plenty of vanity unit ideas lined up – colourful, fluted or handleless, from big to small.

One of the key elements of a bathroom is the basin area, so it needs to look the part while being functional. Whether you’re looking for new designs and ideas to upgrade your old set-up or need a bigger solution to keep your essentials more organised, the latest vanity units are available in many shapes, shades, sizes, and styles.

For compact bathrooms, wall-hung designs are an ideal choice as they don’t take up your floor area, thus giving the illusion of a more open space. You can opt for a unit which has a single drawer as well as open shelving for a mix of storage options.

To add interest and enhance the tactile experience in your bathroom, why not choose a stylish vanity embellished with fluting? It’s one of the most popular trends at the moment. And, if you’ve got ample space, you can pick large double units in striking colourways to make a design statement.

We’ve got a lot of ideas for all tastes and budgets – from sleek and handleless to bold and colourful. And, if you’re curious to see more of our shopping edits, make sure to grab our July issue – on sale on 2 June 2023 – in newsagents nationwide, on the KBB magazine app, or via Readly.

Now, get your screeenshot button at the ready and let’s take a look at these pretty and practical bathroom vanities…

Fluted designs

Fluting is one of the latest interiors trends and it has taken over our kitchens, bedrooms, and bathrooms. We’ve seen reeded finishes on wall panels, taps, tiles, and now furniture. You can find textured vanities in an array of styles and colours, from wall-mounted to floorstanding.

These tactile designs – wrapped in nature-inspired shades – are perfect for nailing the Scandi and Japandi aesthetics. However, there are also more glamorous options, which are decorated with metallic trims and paired with marble worktops, for a luxe look.
