Bathroom vanity with sink designs for your home

Check out our tried and tested vanity sink ideas to maximize your bathroom space.

Vanity sink. Vanity sink. Vanity sink. It is every interior designer’s answer to creating more space when there is less or sometimes none. Whether you are blessed with a huge bathroom or starved of space — a vanity sink is a non-negotiable essential in every home. No, we are not being dramatic. We mean business. 

The bathroom is the smallest room in the house, but that should not stop you from living large. It is where you indulge in most self-care rituals, a space that needs to be tranquil and uncluttered. The trusted vanity sink comes into play here. It provides an additional dimension to the bathroom with chic designs while surreptitiously offering a haven for knick-knacks to clear out counter space. Apart from their effortless functionality, vanity sinks reflect the bathroom’s aesthetic and the owner’s style. 

You can make your bathroom work as hard as its larger mates. We bring you a comprehensive collection of innovative vanity sink designs for the bathroom. All you need is a can-do attitude. Ready? Let’s go.

Vanity Sink Designs To Add A Pop Of Colour

As much a favourite with the adults as with the kids — vanity sinks in different colours are ruling the roost. Blues, pastels and yellows are the go-to choices for most homeowners, though you could easily experiment with reds and pinks.

Vanity Sinks For Luxurious Bathrooms

What better way to incorporate a seamless touch of luxury in your bathroom than by employing vanity sink units in marble or mother of pearl finishes. Or if bling is your middle name, then go for a gold finish on the handles or the entire storage space to add a spot of glamour to the bathroom arsenal. Funky textures, rich patterns and bold design elements can make a blah bathroom look aspirational. What a great way to make this staid space look luxe without going bankrupt.

A Wooden Vanity Sink That’s An Updated Classic

Unsure about the kind of vanity sink you should opt for? Depend on the typical sink vanity unit that will store all your towels and cosmetics. Jump on the wallpaper-in-bathroom trend, and voila! You have a space that is as practical as it is a sanctuary.

The basin area is more than a destination where you brush your teeth and wash your hands. It is where you pause twice over and reflect on your life. By experimenting with interesting colours, different shapes of vanity sink units and materials, you have an opportunity to get creative and style a bathroom space that is an inspiration in itself. With the right elements, a bathroom can be your cocoon.
