What are the latest trends in bathroom vanities?

The bathroom vanity is typically defined as the sink and storage structure around it. Generally, the vanity hides the plumbing to keep your bathroom looking neat and tidy. If you’re remodeling your bathroom, look for these bathroom vanity trends to maintain a modern look in your home.

Vanity trends

Bathroom vanity styles tend to have clean lines and simple surfaces, which make them easy to clean and keep looking crisp. Many people may have a contemporary bathroom, even if the rest of the home is traditional.

  • Wood vanities are on trend. Choose a mid to light tone to keep the bathroom looking clean and fresh.
  • Quartz countertops mimic marble, but aren’t porous, making them durable and stain-resistant. They’re quite popular in bathrooms.
  • Shade of gray, with black and white accents keep the bathroom looking airy and natural. You can add splashes of color with accessories that can change with the seasons to keep your bathroom updated any time of year.
  • Minimalist color palettes in gray and charcoal tiles are on trend rather than intricate tile patterns.

Mirror trends for bathroom vanities

Large, wall-to-wall mirrors or oval mirrors are out, as are naked mirrors (unframed). What’s on trend in a vanity setup are custom, framed mirrors designed to coordinated with your bathroom’s style. Slim mirrors above the sink are also a cool way to show off the wall covering while still giving each person space to look at their reflection while they’re getting ready. Floating mirrors or recessed mirrors are another design trend to check out.

Choosing the right vanity

The vanity that goes into your bathroom will depend on many factors. Small bathrooms may want a low-profile vanity that makes the room feel larger. Larger bathrooms can manage a larger cabinet to provide storage space.

Then, consider the use. Your master bathroom will need a vanity much different than one in a family-friendly bath. You should also think about how many sinks you want in the bathroom. Ideally, two sinks requires at least 60-inches of vanity space to provide elbow room for two people.

Striking a balance between trending and timeless is hard. Luckily, when it comes to selecting cabinet hardware—including knobs and pulls—for your kitchen, Superior Stone & Cabinet is here to help. In this blog, we’ll review the latest cabinet hardware trends.

The Best For Kitchen Cabinets

This kitchen with wood cabinets has gone with darker pulls and knobs.

Trending styles

If you’re currently remodeling your home and looking to pick new cabinet knobs and pulls, it might not be a bad idea to review some of the latest styles to see if there’s one that speaks to you or really fits your home.

Satin brass

While classic silver pulls have been predominant for years, more and more homeowners are opting to match their cabinets, counters, and backsplashes to something timeless: that coppery, darker brass and bronze.

Satin brass pulls not only look great, but can impart a particular style to your kitchen. In particular, bronze and brass evoke the style of the 1950’s kitchen—a style that is coming back into, well, style.

Brushed bronze

These cabinet and drawer pulls are trending, and are a popular combination with stainless style appliances and fixtures. These warm metallic fixtures will match the rest of your kitchen.

Another place where bronze looks great? As pulls on white kitchen cabinets. This is a stunning design that will have your guests talking and bring warmth and color to your kitchen.

Get crazy and unique

Some homeowners looking to make their kitchen their own are using antique, mismatched knobs. These create a one-of-a-kind kitchen with an eclectic flair.

However, think twice before going down this road: if you ever want to sell your home in the future, you may need to replace those knobs and pulls beforehand, as they may not speak to every buyer.

Classic for a reason

If you’re not sold on brass and bronze, don’t panic! There are classic styles that are still in style—and probably won’t go out of it for a long time.

Brushed nickel is a good example of a choice for knobs and pulls that matches almost every kitchen and has a timeless feel to it. Plus, it matches the stainless steel appliances that are now ubiquitous in many homes now.
