  1. 1. Top Ten Small Bathroom Vanities Under 20 I... by S. Lewis - http://www.homethangs.com/blog/2012/05/top-ten-small-bathroom-vanities-unde r-20-inches-you-wont-find-smaller/ Top Ten Small Bathroom Vanities Under 20 Inches (You Won’t Find Smaller!)Its always difficult to make the most of a small bathroom. Balancing storage space and simple functionalitybecomes more difficult the smaller your space is. But sometimes the best thing you can do is opt for a really - andI do mean really - small bathroom vanity, at least as long as you choose the right one. These are the pick of thelitter, nearly all under 20 inches and all intelligently designed to use the space as efficiently as possible. ThePedestalRoman Column Style Vanity With Travertine Vessel Sink From Silkroad ExclusiveThe easiest answer when youre shopping small bathroom vanities is to opt for a pedestal vanity. The problem is,while pedestal vanities and pedestal sinks are, admittedly, quite small - and make a nice display for a beautifulvessel sink - they often run into the problem of not having much storage, or in some cases none at all. ThisRoman Column Vanity from Silkroad Exclusive is a really nice exception. The smallest vanity on this list at a merefoot wide and foot deep, its also completely hollow, and divided on the inside with convenient shelves for storage- plus, you can still show off that vessel sink.

Lewis - http://www.homethangs.com/blog/2012/05/top-ten-small-bathroom-vanities-unde r-20-inches-you-wont-find-smaller/16 Inch Marina Bathroom Vanity From Vigo IndustriesWall mounted bathroom vanities are a good option in a small bathroom as well. This Marina Vanity is aridiculously lean 16 inches wide, and as the name implies, is inspired by the compact sinks youd find on a smallship or sailboat. The design is supremely minimal, with a counter thats taken up almost entirely by the sink, andan offset faucet that means the vanity itself is less than 11 inches deep. Having this vanity is basically likeinstalling a little cubby on the wall that happens to accommodate tooth brushing and hand washing. It takes upvirtually no space - youd even have trouble grazing it if you walked past.Compact 20 Inch Wall Mounted Bathroom Vanity From Bellaterra HomeOf course, wall mounted bathroom vanities are available in slightly larger sizes. This 20 inch Dark Espresso vanityfrom Bellaterra Home is a little wider, a little deeper, and about the same height as the Marina vanity, offering page 2 / 7

Lewis - http://www.homethangs.com/blog/2012/05/top-ten-small-bathroom-vanities-unde r-20-inches-you-wont-find-smaller/more storage space but also protruding a little farther from the wall. Of course, because the faucet is orientednormally on this vanity, it has the advantage of at least a little counter space, so youll be able to store a cup,toothbrush holder, and soap dispenser that the Marina vanity would force you to keep stowed.16 Inch Cube Vanity From AvanityFor a more unified look, my personal favorite wall mounted bathroom vanities are ones like this Cube Vanity fromAvanity that come with the vanity and the mirror built into a single unit. This doesnt really take up any more orless space - the panel doesnt push the vanity out any farther nor does it offer any real tangible benefit - but itdoes help visually alter your space. Because the vanity is a trim 16 inches wide and done in a very dark wengefinish, it basically acts as a tall, slim stripe through the middle of your bathroom wall, which can help visually raisethe ceiling and elongate your room - which can go a long way in a small bathroom.

  4. 4. Top Ten Small Bathroom Vanities Under 20 I... by S. Lewis - http://www.homethangs.com/blog/2012/05/top-ten-small-bathroom-vanities-unde r-20-inches-you-wont-find-smaller/This is one of the very few exceptions to the 20 inch or under rule of this list, but its for a good reason. I love agood corner bathroom vanity in a small bathroom, because they take advantage of the least usable space,minimizing the footprint of your vanity while providing the maximum amount of storage. As a bonus, the angle ofcorner vanities like this Richmond Vanity orients you so the space feels wider and you have a little more elbowroom. While technically this vanity is 32 inches wide, its sliced diagonally to half of what an ordinary vanity wouldbe, and definitely deserves a spot among the best small bathroom vanities. The Oldie But GoodieBonne Maman Washbasin Style Bathroom Vanity From HerbeauSometimes the best designs are ones that came and went a hundred years ago. This Bonne Maman vanity fromHerbeau is a narrow 17 inches at the widest point, and is based on washbasin stands from the Provincial Frenchcountryside. With two simple shelves and a beautiful natural wood finish, this vanity adds a touch of lightness andold country charm to any bathroom - no matter how small. Among small bathroom vanities, this one is probablythe most friendly to a non-modern design, which can be difficult to do when youre going for a compact bathroomvanity. page 4 / 7

Lewis - http://www.homethangs.com/blog/2012/05/top-ten-small-bathroom-vanities-unde r-20-inches-you-wont-find-smaller/Mars Single Sink Vanity With Cream Marfil Top From StufurhomeThat said, if you want a vintage or antique style rather than a modern one, it can be a little harder to play thebalance game between storage and design. While the two shelves on the Bonne Maman are nice, and more orless sufficient, the "drawer" isnt - its a space to accommodate the plumbing. If you want some hidden space, youneed to go for a closed design like this Mars Vanity from Stufurhome. This is the second exception on this list andclocks in at a slightly larger 22 inches wide, but has a full sized cabinet with shelves inside (the panel showsdrawers for style, but makes better use of the space by allowing you to store things around the plumbing ratherthan cordoning off the space). Simple, Modern, And Stuffed With Storage20 Inch Calantha Single Bathroom Vanity From Vigo IndustriesReally, though, if you want the smallest bathroom vanities possible while maximizing your storage space, youvegot to opt for a modern design. Something simple like this Calantha Vanity from Vigo Industries is a perfect option.Its a slim 20 inches with a wide sink basin but enough space to store a few essentials on the counter. The curveddouble doors are the real star, though, deepening and slightly widening the interior space to invisibly maximize theinterior storage without significantly increasing the footprint. page 5 / 7

Lewis - http://www.homethangs.com/blog/2012/05/top-ten-small-bathroom-vanities-unde r-20-inches-you-wont-find-smaller/18 Inch Espresso Vanity From PegasusThis Espresso Vanity from Pegasus is similar, with just enough curved flair on the legs to make it feel stylishwithout weighing down the vanity. The slight lift off the ground helps give the vanity a furniture like quality andopens up the space without sacrificing too much of the interior storage. As always, when shopping for smallbathroom vanities, you want to be sure to find a cabinet that has shelves. Any cabinet that doesnt, no matter howbig, is just wasted space if you cant use all the space inside.16 Inch Aristo Single Bathroom Vanity From Vigo IndustriesFinally, simple is as simple does. This trim, 16 inch Aristo vanity is about as lean as they come, but has everythingyou need out of a vanity in a simple, squared package - a simple, deep, easy to reach cabinet, a small open shelf, page 6 / 7
