Your Essential Guide to Bathroom Vanities

A bathroom vanity can make or break your whole bathroom’s aesthetic. That is why it is essential to pick the right combination for your desired look. You have to take into consideration the type of counter, size, storage, style and even finish that you want to pull together to create the final product. We’re breaking down different options, types and trends that YOU need to know when planning your next dream bathroom!


Cambria counters are a no-brainer when it comes to choosing a countertop. They use top-of-the-line quartz from mines that they own. Cambria is more durable than marble or granite which makes those hard-to-fix chips, stains or scratches a lot less likely. They recycle all of their metal tooling and the water they use for polishing, certified as safe for food preparation and they are nonporous & nonabsorbent so that it doesn’t draw in moisture from past mishaps. The options are unlimited.

Remnant Quartz

Remnant stones provide an incredible opportunity for a one-of-a-kind look. With quartz, specifically, it has become a tremendously popular choice for countertops. Not only is remnant quartz very durable, but it is also heat, scratch and stain resistant. You can choose between a wide variety of choices, making your countertop the focal point of your bathroom.

Double Vanity

Need room for two in your master bathroom? Try a DOUBLE vanity! This is a less common way to use vanities but it is a way for “his and hers” sides to be separate but equal. Once you determine the size vanity that you want, you can move forward with deciding if you want separate vanities. It’s a great way to add a little “more” to your space without actually taking up more counter space – for the both of you.

European Style

When in doubt, you can always count on an old, European-style single vanity to get the job done. This choice of vanity is timeless, elegant, and adds just enough style & juxtaposition to any bathroom. Their intricate carvings, beautiful designs and finishes are a sure-fire way to catch some eyes by using your desired space, storage and counter combination.  

Multi-Purpose Storage

Speaking of storage, who says that your bathroom vanity can’t be multi-purpose? IT CAN! Yes, there are drawers or cabinets in most common styles, but what about adding a little “something” to accent the other features in your bathroom. With a nook-like area on the bottom of your vanity, you can choose what you want to do with that space. In this particular example, a white counter with an off-white colored vanity is paired with brown accents to bring everything together beautifully.

The BIG Finish – Matte or Glossy?

Now that you’ve chosen your style, size, and counter, it’s time to choose what kind of finish you want to have on your vanity counter space. Cambria offers both matte and high-gloss options when it comes to the BIG finish. The truth is, you can’t go wrong with either one. This is personal preference – matte is smooth and silky looking where the high-gloss shines and is more susceptible to reflect light.
