I literally cannot with myself.
Without question, the most difficult design decision I had to make on the Hill Street house was finding a vanity for our master bath. I remember thinking when we finally solved it, “thank God that’s over.” Well, as it turns out…it isn’t. <Insert annoyed face emoji. And the squirt gun.>
Here I am, knee deep in our second renovation, and I’m sitting around for hours on end looking for yet another [swear word] bathroom vanity. WHAT THE [another swear word]?! I blamed my inability to find what I was looking for on the layout/dimensions of the Hill Street bathroom, but it turns out the real problem
might be is me.
This time around I’m looking for something much more modern. I think. But wood, with lots of grain. I think. And definitely not rustic. Yea modern, but not too modern. Ya know?!
Yea…no one knows.
Even my dad (my own dad!) is judging me. We were out to dinner the other night and he casually said, “so how are things in the bathroom coming? Get all your finishes figured out?” Without drawing attention to my obvious issue I said, “yea everything but the vanity.” The man about fell out of his chair, “Seriously?! Again?! That was your problem last time – it took you nine months! And then Ian still had to build it.”
Anyway…in an effort to look like I’ve made some progress I thought I’d use this post to review some vanities that I have managed to find. Or at least find pictures of…
This is my dream vanity. It drops lower than a lot of floating vanities I see out there (and I need that for plumbing reasons) and I am OBSESSED with the wood grain on the front. I also love how the solid surface top material wraps around giving it a clean modern look. It also has legitimate counter space, something many of these vanities lack. If someone can find me this vanity, I will give them a million bucks! You read it here first. 😉
Another lovely floating vanity. This one is, I presume, about the length and depth that I need. And it comes with double bowl sinks and some legit counter space. Sold! Except my plumbing cannot be in the wall and I don’t think I want an all-white front. And I’m not doing marble in this bathroom. Damn…so close.
Back to a wood front and solid surface top. This vanity isn’t floating, but it’s still modern and it would work great in our space. Additionally, it’s a lighter stained wood, which is apparently difficult to find. If I see another chestnut brown “modern” vanity I’m going to literally scream until I turn red. (OK, I’ll probably just sigh heavily and keep scrolling, but yea).
This vanity is my least favorite but I can easily source it and buy it today…of course. Although I love the wood color and the overall size and shape, I need closed storage. This would work great in a guest bathroom, but as a heavily used master, no thanks. (Note the faucet, however, mine is on it’s way in chrome!)
So yea, that’s all I got. That and a headache.
I mean – I knew where I was going to college in 11th grade. I was sure I was going to marry my husband by our second date. And I picked out my wedding dress on the first store visit. I don’t consider myself an indecisive person unless, apparently, I’m searching for bathroom furniture. And in that case, just forget it…
