A few weeks ago, a family friend completed a full bathroom remodel. We knew nothing about the project, and when they invited me over to take a look, I didn’t know what to expect. I was expecting a standard white bathroom with matching vanities. I was surprised to hear they had been looking for wood bathroom vanities and the results were spectacular.
The addition of a wooden bathroom vanity brought an unexpected style and natural feel to the room. After seeing this incredible bathroom, we investigated a range of wood vanity ideas.
For many years natural solid wood was put aside for more modern building materials. Solid wood has made a big comeback in the past few years, and it is easy to see why. Real wood brings authenticity and character to a bathroom in a way that some modern materials can.
This beautiful solid hardwood vanity provides incredible contrast in this sleek gray bathroom. The vessel sink sits atop the vanity, supplying ample bathroom essentials storage.
A window above the mirror provides the natural light and makes the wood glow.
Here we have another vessel sink atop a wood counter. This bathroom has a more earthy feel with the addition of greenery from the many plants. The frame on the vanity mirror matches the green.
Even though these first two bathrooms use wood vanities and gray walls, they couldn’t be more different. This highlights the versatility of these materials with the solid wood bathroom vanity.
The bathroom layout is quite an unusual shape, and the use of wood on the floors and walls makes the most of this space. The shower and commode are set against the wooden floors and divided by the floating bathroom vanity centerpiece.
Here we see another floating vanity with a marble countertop. Once again, the wood adds a natural feel to the room that otherwise may be too stark. The vanity’s marble surface and sleek lines are perfect for this modern master bathroom.
The addition of cabinets to your bathroom provides much-needed storage space. Solid wood has become more popular than particle board in the last few years as people improve their home’s look and feel.
This elegant bathroom has plenty of storage in these wooden bathroom cabinets. The walnut vanity set against a distressed concrete wall provides a modern yet old-world feel.
This would be the ultimate gentleman’s bathroom.
This older bathroom shows how long hardwood cabinets last. With the rest of the bathroom looking a bit old, the cabinets still look fresh.
It wouldn’t take too much effort to update this bathroom with new counters and sinks.
From an older family bathroom to a brand new apartment bathroom. This free-standing wooden vanity adds natural color to this ultra-modern and ultra-white bathroom.
This solid wood vanity looks excellent and provides much-needed storage space for this stunning white bathroom.
His and her sinks sit atop this floating wood vanity. The type of wood used is also used for the shower floor. The rainforest shower looks out onto a tropical forest through the large floor-to-ceiling window.
The use of wood for the floors, walls, and vanity makes this large bathroom a joy to behold. I love the reading lamp next to the free-standing tub—a perfect place to soak away the day’s stress.
Double Sink Vanity
Double sink vanities are trendy for master bathrooms. They make it much easier to share a single space (and much easier to tell who is making a mess).
There is a lot of space between the two sinks on this bench-style counter. The basins are on either side of the window, providing plenty of countertop space.
The wood backsplash behind the matches the wood used bathtub. The only thing missing from this is a pair of mirrors above the basins.
This bathroom makes the most of the fantastic view from this high-rise apartment. The double vanity has two small vessel sinks, but the show’s real star is the view.
Here we have another tub with a fantastic view. Even though these two bathrooms use similar colors and materials, they have different feel. The double bathroom vanity provides storage and function.
Both bathrooms would be a wonderful place to relax after a hard day in the hustle and bustle city.
The clean lines of this solid wood vanity compliment the dark blue tile backsplash. Although this is a simple design, it works perfectly.
The wood tone of the flooring and the wood base of the counter soften the stark white of the rest of this bathroom. This modern vanity suits the minimalist theme, with the large window bringing in natural light.
Single Sink Vanity
If you don’t have a two-sink double vanity space, there are still some fantastic designs with single vanities.
This is my favorite of the ultra-modern designs. The floating wood vanity envelopes a single sink. I have never seen a single vanity design like this before.
A matching wooden light fixture illuminates the vanity.
Made from a single piece of solid wood, the two shelves of this vanity look incredible. I love that the designer kept the irregular shape and bark on the edge of each shelf.
The wooden backsplash and light fixture matches the floor tiles perfectly. This Asian-style bathroom is another of my favorites, with the unusually shaped sink.
This rustic vanity matches the distressed wood of the vanity with the stone of the basin. The earthy, rustic feel reminds me of an Asian spa deep in some tropical rainforest.
A rectangular vessel sink tops this solid wood oak bathroom vanity. This vanity provides ample storage for this small bathroom with four soft close drawers and a single cupboard.
Finally, we have another vessel sink atop a sold wood countertop and cabinet. Making the best use of a small space, the vanity provides storage for all your bathroom essentials.
With so many choices available for wood bathroom vanities, you are sure to come up with the perfect look for your home. Adding a piece of wood to your bath vanity is an excellent option if you plan a bathroom renovation. Whether you need a single or double bathroom vanity, you can’t go wrong with a solid wood design.
