4 Vanities That Put the ‘Vanity’ in ... Vanity
Make no mistake: There is definitely a difference between a bathroom sink and a full-blown vanity, and for many it’s not just the addition of some cabinetry.
Popular vanity styles have changed quite a bit over the years and different features appeal to different people, as they tend to do. For the married crowd, the pinnacle of bathroom bliss may be the double vanity – two sinks and enough storage space to end (nearly) every dispute. For others, perhaps it’s a floating vanity, or something with an elaborate basin.
Whatever the preferred style, you can rest assured there is a designer willing to take the concept to the next level. Here, we take a look at a few vanities that really explore the leading edge …
<strong>1. The Futuristic Vanity<a title="Maple Vanity " href="http://www.atgstores.com/bathroom-vanities/avanity-legacy-v40-bu-40-maple-bathroom-vanity_g530224.html?isku=5024075&linkloc=cataLogProductItemsImage" rel="attachment wp-att-12763" target="_blank"><img class="alignright wp-image-12763" title="Maple Bathroom Vanity " src="http://ourblog.atgstores.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/vanity1-300x300.jpg" alt="contemporary wood vanity" width="180" height="180" /></a> </strong>
This ultra-contemporary vanity moves beyond the now and well into the design of what may seem normal 20 years down the road ... unless you're in some kind of hipster hotel where every room is different and have names like Andy Warhol's Hippo Campus.
<strong>2. The Victorian-Chic Vanity<a title="Victorian Style Vanity " href="http://www.atgstores.com/bathroom-vanities/virtu-usa-gs-6048-wh-abigail-48-single-sink-bathroom-vanity_g1043299.html?isku=7957818&linkloc=cataLogProductItemsImage" rel="attachment wp-att-12764" target="_blank"><img class="alignright wp-image-12764" title="Victorian Vanity " src="http://ourblog.atgstores.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/vanity2-300x300.jpg" alt="Abigail vanity" width="180" height="180" /></a></strong>
The white-on-white look is in, although Elton John will tell you it never went out. This vanity ups the ante with its unique drawers and solid oak construction. Perhaps not truly Victorian, the design uses classical lines to pull off a new, sophisticated look - again, much like the Rocket Man.
<strong>3. The Vain Vanity<a title="Metal Finished Vanity " href="http://www.atgstores.com/bathroom-vanities/nameeks-set-nb1-boheme-bathroom-vanity_g665644.html?isku=6038709&linkloc=cataLogProductItemsImage" target="_blank"><img class="alignright wp-image-12765" title="Reflective Vanity" src="http://ourblog.atgstores.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/vanity3-300x300.jpg" alt="Vanity with mirror" width="180" height="180" /></a> </strong>
"Ostentatious" may not be exactly the right word, but any vanity that sports this much bling is begging to be noticed. And, because it assumes you will undoubtedly fail in your ability to pair it with a worthy mirror it just comes with one, like the jealous best friend who never leaves.
<strong>4. The Demure Vanity<a title="Hand-Stained Hardwood Vanity" href="http://www.atgstores.com/bathroom-vanities/cole-company-112327554048-designer-series-collection-turlington-sink-chest_g1071332.html?isku=8306318&linkloc=cataLogProductItemsImage" rel="attachment wp-att-12766" target="_blank"><img class="alignright wp-image-12766" title="Sink Chest" src="http://ourblog.atgstores.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/vanity4-300x300.jpg" alt="hardwood vanity" width="180" height="180" /></a> </strong>
This vanity's power of attraction is understated, but shouldn't be underestimated. Smooth, curving lines and a POP! of color make the "Turlington" hard to miss. Plus, with a name like that you have to expect some attitude.
