Whether you prefer an open vanity or one with closed cabinets is an important choice that is defined as much by your lifestyle as it is by your storage needs. If all you want to use the bathroom vanity for is to store few neatly folded, fresh towels, a vase and some additional accessories, then an open vanity will do just fine. But this also means you need to keep it clean and clutter-free on a regular basis. If you are someone like us and wants to tuck away ‘an entire world ' inside the bathroom vanity, then one with closed cabinets is undoubtedly the way forward.
Don 't feel too intimidated by bathrooms with top-to-bottom checkerboard interior. If you want to keep it subtle, add a small checkered addition to your vanity and be amazed at how it instantly changes the spirit of the room! Or, as opposed to the previous example, dress up the entire vanity in a checkered pattern, capturing the prime look!
Even when the checkerboard floors are colored in gentle cream tones, the bathroom can still hold a strong vintage appeal. Everything depends on the furniture pieces you choose to place in it!

It has the charm that easily impresses everyone, but lovers of all-things-rustic will be able to appreciate it even more. If you are dreaming of soaking in a vintage bathtub that takes you into another era, copper bathtubs are the perfect thing for you!
We already talked about how the material you choose for the black vanity can define the style of your bathroom. Take this a step further by carefully selecting the finish of the vanity and the fixtures and accessories around it. Beyond the glossy lacquered and matte finishes, think of the material used for vanity handles, sink, countertop and the bathroom fixtures. A dark vanity with white marble countertop is a hot favorite among homeowners and those who love warm metallic glint can throw in brass handles and bathroom fitting. If you prefer cooler metallics, then chrome handles and fittings are the way to go.
