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…
Colourful bathroom vanity unit ideas
This year, colour is a big focus in interiors. And what’s not to love? Injecting bright tints and tones into your bathroom can instantly uplift the mood – whether it’s through paint, tiles or furniture. So, why not swap your old vanity unit with a design dressed in striking hues? From pastel pink and burnt terracotta to lush teal and forest green, check out these beautiful solutions…
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.
For the neutral lovers
Not ready to embrace colour? No problem – we’ve got something for everyone! Wood furniture or minimalist units in warm beige tones are always a timeless choice. Plus, thanks to their simple look, you can integrate them in a wide range of schemes – from Scandinavian style to contemporary.
A dash of luxe
Do you love a touch of glamour in your bathroom? Dark furniture solutions decorated with statement, metallic hardware are a great choice. If you’ve got plenty of space available, invest in a grand design with ample storage space, which will not only look good but will also help you keep your space tidy. Complete your scheme with stone surfaces, decorative basins, and sleek taps.
Sleek & handleless vanity units
Last, but definitely not least, if you’re more of a minimalist or prefer a pared-back look, we’ve got you covered. These sleek designs allow you to go into full creative mode with the rest of your scheme – from your wallcoverings and sanitaryware to accessories. Here is a selection of handleless units in timeless neutral shades…
