Powder Room Vanities

A powder room, generally the smallest room in the house, can only accommodate a small vanity. The powder room is not used for bathing so there’s no need to store shampoos, bath towels and hair dryers. A vanity that holds one sink with a minimal counter top is sufficient as long as there is enough room to access the toilet.

The style of the vanity can complement the style of the public rooms of the house or make a bold statement. “If you have a Craftsman-style home, you might want to go with a clean-lined Shaker style vanity,” says Jennifer Markanich, owner and designer of Timeless Interiors. “A pedestal sink works well in a powder room but there is no counter space,” which is the reason she doesn’t recommend using pedestal sinks in a guest bath or master bath. “You lose storage unless you have plenty of storage space elsewhere in the bathroom,” she says.
