Vanities: they offer the functionality of a sink, the storage of cabinets, and the style of a statement piece. So why when people think of vanities do they only think of bathrooms?
We’re bringing the versatility of the vanity to rooms all over the house. We wrote about this in Bathroom Vanities in 3 Unexpected Places. Read on for more inspiration on how you can use vanities in unexpected ways to make creative and functional additions to your home.
You can explore our wide assortment of bathroom vanities and cabinets online or see them in person at your local Home Depot store.
Bathroom Vanity as a Coffee Station
It’s like having a little corner cafe right in your kitchen, sunroom, or favorite spot to curl up with a cup. With a multi-functional piece like the Home Decorators Collection Teasian Vanity, you can rinse dishes, fill pots, and channel your inner barista anywhere in the house. And, bonus: storing mugs in here frees up some space in your kitchen cabinets.
Bathroom Vanity as a Makeup Station
Imagine a morning where you didn’t have to lean over the sink to put on your mascara or elbow your spouse for more counter space. Creating your own makeup station with a fully-functioning vanity like the HDC Ivy Park Hill (not currently available online, however the Glacier Bay Lancaster Vanity has a similar look) is basically an extension of the bathroom that’s dedicated to your beauty. Which kind of makes you feel like a princess. And we see nothing wrong with that.
Bathroom Vanity as an Entertainment Bar
The most fun room in the house should also be the most functional. We used the Home Decorators Collection Brinkhill Vanity for its clean, modern lines and storage space. Here, you can fill glasses, store your hosting supplies, and show off your stemware.
The best part? You don’t miss any of the fun if you never have to run back-and-forth to the kitchen.
Bathroom Vanity as a Painting Studio.
A creative use of a bathroom vanity can give you a creative space to call your own. With a simple install of the Home Decorators Collection Claxby Vanity, you can store paint, wash brushes, and clean off palettes without having to worry about getting paint all over your house. And after you finish your first masterpiece, you’ll have the perfect spot right over your new vanity to hang it.
Creating made-for-you spaces in your home with vanities is easier that you think. And with so many styles of vanities, there is bound be to one that fits yours. All you have to do is think outside the bathroom.
