Adding a vanity is an easy and effective way to upgrade your bathroom. Designed to save space, a vanity is a storage unit and a getting-ready station in one. The best bathroom vanities are stylish on the outside and spacious on the inside, with plenty of doors, drawers, and shelves to store your essential products. 

There are wall-mounted vanities that seem to float above your floor, as well as free-standing units that make a statement. Smaller bathrooms are best served by single-sink vanities, while most master bathrooms have room for a double unit. Each of these styles comes in traditional, modern, and transitional designs. 

In fact, there are so many varieties of vanities, sold by so many home furniture retailers, that it can be difficult to know where to start. As a shopping writer, I know all the best places to buy bathroom vanities. I’ve spent hours searching the sites of the top home furniture stores. 

After sorting through thousands of products and reading countless customer reviews, these are  the very best. From sprawling double vanities to cute and compact corner units, I’ve found nine options to suit every bathroom shape and style.

Best bathroom vanity FAQs

Does my bathroom vanity need to be flush against my wall?

In almost all cases, yes, your vanity should be flush against your bathroom wall. This should hide unsightly plumbing, but there are practical reasons, too. If a vanity isn’t set flush against the wall, it will shift slightly with daily use. Since your vanity is attached to your sinks and pipes, these small shifts will put strain on your plumbing and could cause leaks. 

There’s just one exception to the rule. If you happen to have a very spacious bathroom, and your plumbing comes up through the floor rather than out of the wall, then you might consider a bathroom vanity island.

Final thoughts

Once you’ve bought one of the best bathroom vanities, it’s important to use it wisely. Organizing a bathroom vanity well should minimize clutter, keeping your space open and airy. Before you begin, take note of these items never to store in a bathroom vanity.
