It's not uncommon to find a wide range of different materials for a mid-century style modern bathroom vanity. One of the most common surface tops you may see is marble, but slate, other mixed stones, poured cement, rough-edge or live-edge wood, and glass are also found. Jessica Davis says you should use your vanity as a centerpiece in your bathroom or dressing room. Since it will normally be well lit, mirrored, and large enough for an abundance of supplies and accessories, it should be the dominant decor in the room without clashing with the existing decor. Instead it should blend, but still retain a boldness that stands out and catches your eye.
The mid-century modern aesthetic was in its height during the post World War II period between 1945 and 1969. It has become a very common style to have in both homes and businesses. Interior decorator Billy Cotton has seen a boom in the popularity of mid-century modern aesthetics in all types of furniture, seeing this style pop up in homes, offices, hotels, and medical offices. The color palette for this aesthetic includes a mix of reds, yellows, cyans, greens, and other earthtones. Whether you are looking for a bright and vibrant aesthetic, or want something a bit more muted and toned down, the mid-century modern can deliver.
The construction on your bathroom vanity should be sturdy and durable. You want the surface or shelving to be strong enough to support plenty of accessories and makeup collections, as well as the weight of you leaning on it when getting up close to the mirror. Woodworking specialist says to focus on a thick and heavy surface, as well as solid metal hardware. This not only ensures a strong and reliable construction for daily use, but helps to ensure your bathroom vanity will be around for years to come.
Bathroom vanities can come in a wide range of measurements to suit your specific needs. It's not uncommon to see widths of 24, 30, and 36 inches as standard - but you can also find much larger 48, 60, and 72 inch widths of both the surface and lower cabinetry. When it comes to the standard depth, Darryl Carter says you will most likely find vanities in 21 inch depths unless you request a custom measurement. Whether you choose a rectangle vanity or go for a square or corner unit, the overall size can easily be customized to your specific room and needs.
