Maximizing Your Vanity's Potential and Appearance

Many upgrades to your single sink vanity don't have to cost a lot but can provide usefulness as well as aesthetic value. If you're looking to spice up your room while shopping for a bathroom vanity, here are some ideas to keep you headed in the right direction.

Don't Spend a Fortune for Gorgeous Accents

Touches of elegance can be found in low-cost but still gorgeous ways. If you have a single sink bathroom vanity, every inch of space can be precious. So, take the space you have and enhance it. Small shelves can create storage for makeup, brushes, hairbands and other accessories while leaving counter space free for larger items such as hairdryers or curling irons. Small wall studs can give room for hanging baskets to free up more counter room, as well as giving space to hang larger items.

Decorations with a Purpose

If hanging decorations lighten up a room in ways you enjoy, consider making your essentials part of the decor. Woven baskets or colorful hangers can showcase a world of color in your makeups and brushes. With some clever spacing, hairbrushes and toothbrushes can add an accent to your vanity area. Best of all, these decorations serve as places to hold your items while organizing them. You won't have to worry about losing another brush or cap again.

Use Your Favorite Items Twice

One of the biggest space savers are shelves, as they allow double or triple space by stacking. Items such as office paper dividers, old glassine plates, and other flat objects can be layered on top of each other to give you more space on the same vanity while adding a touch of nostalgia. With a bit of wood and some creativity, color can be added to the mix and enhance the layout of the single bathroom vanity you already have.

If Top Space is Full, Use the Sides and Doors

The sides of a vanity and the doors to the lower cabinet or drawer can sometimes be overlooked but have incredible potential. A few nails or push-ins and instantly your wall can be decluttered while providing an effective place to store all the items you need. Keeping just a few items for decor on top can leave it looking simplistic and lovely while letting you still have everything within easy reach.

Having a smaller vanity does not mean you need to sacrifice space or decor. Using just a few tools and what is already in your bathroom, you can increase the usable space you have while keeping gorgeous touches all around you.
