Modern Bathroom Vanity 101

Blue vanity with  modern styling and white countertop.

Your bathroom has many important features, but your vanity might be the most underrated. While the toilet, shower, and sink are the central pieces, a modern bathroom vanity is essential for storage, style, and the tone of your bathroom’s interior.  

The right vanity transforms your bathroom, and thanks to Décor Planet, it’s incredibly easy to pick the right one. Match your interior design with one of these modern vanities. 


Over the last decade or two, minimalism has exploded in popularity, defining the interior looks of residential and commercial spaces alike. With its emphasis on the calm and decluttered, a minimalist space is free of distracting colors, textures, and features. You’ll instead find many grays, blacks, and other similar colors elevated to a feature role. 

The bathroom is a spot that naturally needs calm and comfort, so a minimalistic vanity is a perfect fit here. Two excellent choices to consider include: 

Fresca Lucera vanity in gray with silver hardware.

Fresca Lucera 48" Gray Wall Hung Modern Bathroom Cabinet with Top & Undermount Sink: This sophisticated vanity features a marble or quartz stone countertop, solid wood cabinets, and a chic gray finish for a sleek, modern look.   


Fresca Allier vanity in gray with long nickel handles.

Fresca Allier 72" Gray Oak Modern Double Sink Bathroom Cabinet with Top & Sinks: Combining elegant form with casual function, this modern double sink bathroom vanity adds a slight touch of warmth to complement its sophisticated design. 

Both vanities are slightly different, but you’ll still stay on trend while adding more amenities to your bathroom. 

Natural Aesthetic 

Another trending look is the natural aesthetic. Like minimalism, a natural look emphasizes calm and comfort through decorative elements. Unlike minimalism, natural interiors make use of light, earth tones like blue and green, and outdoor materials like stone and wood. 

Bringing the outdoors into your bathroom begins with your vanity. To get you started, here are two vanities that fit a natural design scheme:

Coastal Interiors 

A coastal interior is a variation of both minimalism and a natural aesthetic. Blending bright whites and blues and mostly neutral textures, coastal designs are a timeless choice that never go out of style. 

Whether you’re renovating a beach house or your suburban home, these special vanities are the right choice for coastal bathrooms:

Mid Century Modern 

Mid-century modern dominated the 50’s and 60’s, but it’s coming back into style. With simple, uncomplicated features and made from natural materials like wood and copper, mid-century modern furniture is perfectly retro and on-trend, finding new life among Millennials in particular. 

If you love the mid-century look, you’ll love these wooden bathroom vanities:
