With a white bath fixture, light-color linoleum floors, and pastel wallpaper, your bathroom may need a shot of color added. A black bathroom vanity may be the change the space needs. While bathroom vanities come in several varieties, from traditional to contemporary, the finished wood and stone countertop make it the centerpiece of the space. If you want a black bathroom vanity to contrast with the pale appearance of your bathroom, what are your options?
All bathroom vanities consist of three parts: a wooden cabinet below, a stone countertop, and a sink basin. A matching mirror may also be included. Each of these offers multiple design possibilities. The stone can be a light or dark shade, and the finish used for the wood ranges from honey colored to espresso and white is another option. Additionally, depending upon the dimensions of your space, a single or double bathroom vanity may end up adding more storage features.
If you look down at the fixture, the countertop and basin are the first parts seen. Made out of real or synthetic stone, the countertop can come in a dark shade: Granite stone gives it a solid black color, and patchwork marble has a mottled, dark brown appearance. Synthetic stone, as well, may be black, but instead of a solid shade, smaller bits of color may be dispersed throughout.
Matching the natural or synthetic granite stone may be a darkly-finished vanity cabinet below. Although finding solid black wooden cabinets is rare, a darker finish for the wood, such as espresso or a mahogany color, blends in well with the solid black stone on top.
A contemporary style can be another option for a black bathroom vanity. Made out of metal and glass, a contemporary bathroom vanity may use black-colored glass, which contrasts with the metal parts and the décor of your space.
