In any bath, the vanity is arguably the most important piece of furniture in the room. That’s why we’ve been so inspired to see many homeowners dressing up their baths with creative DIY alternatives to standard bathroom vanities.

And, of course, we absolutely love it when people such as the ingenious folks over at Sweet Pickins (above) make vanities pairing one of our vintage-inspired sinks with a repurposed dresser to create a unique piece for a bathroom.

You may want to consider a few of the incredible DIY bathroom vanities we’ve spotted recently if you’re looking for ideas that can add character to your bath.

If you are intrigued by the idea of creating your own DIY vanity, a half-bath or guest bathroom might be the perfect place to try it out. Experiment with salvaged cabinets and thrift store tables and use a drop-in sink, or try a repurposed storage cart topped by a vessel sink, or just build something of your own design.

As you can see, the size of your bathroom and your imagination are the only real limits to the vanity of your dreams. Small sacrifices, however, will have to be made. You may lose a little top-drawer storage for the sake of your vanity. But the originality and style you gain will be worth it.

Excessive vanity is often seen as an unforgivable character flaw, but what better place for it than your bathroom. So dare to be bold, different, ostentatious or even a little odd, like this quirky creation from the Benjamin Collection.

 

The Home Depot offers a spectacular selection of new bathroom vanities, vanity cabinets and vanity tops, as well as an equally complementary array of bathroom faucets and bath accessories and hardware. See even more inspiration and ideas in our Places series here on the Apron Blog.

  1. Interesting vanity with the pedal bike! Looks very fitting in there especially with the black and white checkered tile floor. The bike almost looks like it belongs in there without a second thought. CLEVER!
