POSTED ON Tuesday, September 26, 2023 IN Bathroom

From spa-like inspiration to funky retro vibes, we have the low-down on all the hottest trends to keep your eye on in the coming year.

When planning a bathroom remodel or mapping out the finishes in a new construction home, one element that sets the stage for the entire room is the color and style of the bathroom vanity. Bathroom vanities can be as customized as you like, with options like floating vanities, furniture-esque designs with dresser-like feet, and door style options galore,  ranging from classic to modern. There are many ways to make a statement. 

In this article, we discuss popular and trending vanity colors alongside some of the classic colors we’ve been seeing for years. Consider the available options, then decide for yourself what type of style and vibe you want to convey.

Classic and Safe Vanity Colors

If you’re looking to create a clean and timeless look, stick with classic vanity colors like  white, beige, or gray. These colors supersede trends and set a neutral tone, creating a versatile foundation for  any design style. 

Some classic bathroom color schemes include all-white finishes (white vanity, white counters, white tile), a neutral beige color, or shades of monochromatic gray. Black and white is also a classic color scheme that is both timeless and sophisticated. 

Choosing a “safe” color for your vanity does not mean your design needs to stay traditional, however. Other accents can bring in multitudes of colors and may be easier and less expensive to change as your taste evolves.

Trending Vanity Colors

For those who want to stay up-to-date on current trends, interior design and decor, and overall up-and-coming colors, we’ve pulled together a number of emerging trends in bathroom vanity colors. Bold, vibrant colors can transform a bathroom – color imparts meaning and influences how you feel when you enter a space.

Green Vanity Bathroom Ideas

Green bathroom vanities have been growing in popularity for some time, but we really saw green take off in home decor colors in 2022 when variations of a sage green color were top choices for major paint color experts. A soft green, like mint or sage, combined with white, can create a fresh and calming bathroom environment, whereas darker tones create a lush, forest-inspired space reminiscent of a dark academia design style.

Consider introducing shades of green into your bathroom style with complementing accessories, wall colors, and even potted plants like ferns or snake plants to incorporate a touch of nature. Subtle yet refreshing additions can transform your bathroom.

Dark Gray Bathroom Vanity

Gray is a popular choice because it adds color while providing a neutral, versatile base for different color themes. Pair gray with almost any accent color for a fresh, modern look. Gray bathroom vanities can be achieved with both painted and stained wood, depending on the aesthetic you’re trying to create.

Gray and greige both act as neutrals and can be designed as modern, contemporary, or rustic so it could be considered a safe or classic choice. However when used in a dark tone, as seen above, gray can enhance a “moody” aesthetic.

Blue Vanity Bathroom Ideas

Blue is a calming color that over the past several years has come to be thought of as a neutral. Dark blue and navy tones can inspire coastal vibes, while light blue inspires peaceful tranquility. Blue is a unique color backdrop for a design palette and offers a refreshing change from more traditional neutrals.

Pair blue with white for a coastal look, use blue in combination with natural grain wood textures to inspire an organic, farmhouse feel, or integrate shades of blue to create a harmonious, monochromatic theme.

Best Vanity Colors for Small Bathrooms

Small bathrooms can be big on style. In order to maximize space and light, consider not only the size and shape of your bathroom vanity but also the color. Some colors create an open, airy feel while others inspire a cozy aesthetic.

When it comes to selecting the perfect bathroom vanity color to use when remodeling a small bathroom, it's crucial to consider the impact on the perception of space and light. Opting for lighter hues like soft whites, pale grays, or light natural wood tones can visually expand the room, making it feel more open and airy. These colors reflect light effectively, creating a brighter and more inviting atmosphere, ideal for smaller bathrooms or spaces with limited natural light. Consider using mirrors to reflect natural light and maximize the feeling of extra space.
