As people become increasingly tired of urban living, the call to a simpler time started to become noticeable in modern home design. Even in the deepest of urban neighborhoods, people are now starting to look into the “farmhouse chic” aesthetic. This is especially true when it comes to bathroom design, and as a result, rustic farmhouse bathroom vanities have started to take the center stage.

Farmhouse bathrooms are bathrooms that are designed to have the weathered, wood-centric look of a quaint farmhouse out in the middle of the British countryside. It’s simple, yet at the same time, offers a homey ambiance that most people can’t help but find remarkably soothing in its own right.

At the center of most rustic bathrooms is a gorgeous vanity that acts as a focal point as well as an important hotspot for just about every single morning function. But, how can you find the right one for your home? We decided to put together our own collection of our favorite farmhouse bathroom vanities to help you out.

What Is A Farmhouse Vanity?

A farmhouse vanity is a vanity that has a rustic appearance to it. It most often is associated with bathroom decor, comes with at least one sink, and typically is made of wood with a distressed finish to it. These kinds of vanities have become extremely popular in recent years, primarily because the rustic look is back in style.

Can I Add Lights To My Vanity?

In the past, most vanities had to come with built-in light setups that surrounded mirrors. Today, most vanities will have lighting fixtures added to the walls above them. This gives your vanity a cleaner look, helps reduce the eyesore of old school vanities, and also offers you lighting that works with your interior design choices.

The thing is, the lights are not directly attached to your vanity. So whether or not that fits your specific definition of adding lights to your vanity is up to you.

What To Look For In A Farmhouse Bathroom Vanity

If you’re in the market for a new bathroom vanity, it’s important to know what to search for. Most interior designers agree that the following features should be at the top of your list:

  • Proper Measurements. You need to have a vanity that fits your home, even if it’s a small space.
  • Sink Connections. No sink = no vanity.
  • Cabinet Doors. What good is a vanity without a little storage? Not much at all, if you think about it.
  • Aesthetic. This important facet includes the color of the vanity in question, as well as the overall look. A surprising number of styles can fit into the “farmhouse” niche, so it’s important to get the right one for you.

We’re going to try to get a nice variety in for this, alright?

How Much Should You Spend For A Bathroom Vanity Cabinet?

The amount of money you should spend depends on the features, size, and material that the bathroom vanity is made from. Most bathroom vanities will cost anywhere from $400 to $2,000. To make sure that we have a vanity for everyone, we made sure to add some vanities that are slightly below average when it comes to price point.

Should I Go For A Rustic Or A Modern Vanity For My Bathroom?

This all depends on your personal preferences.

Modern vanities are generally easier to clean than rustic ones, so if you want to go for an low-maintenance choice, modern would be the best bet. Modern vanities are also great if you love the sleek, spa-like ambiance of an ultra-modern bathroom. It’s swanky, and always looks pricey.

If you love the idyllic scene of a British country cottage and want to replicate it in your home, then you’re better served through a rustic, farmhouse-style vanity. Thankfully, there are plenty of vanities that come with varnishes that make them easy to clean, even if they look distressed.

Related Questions

How long should a vanity last? 

If you take good care of your vanity well, it’s possible to have a vanity last for anywhere between 10 to 20 years or longer. Some even become heirloom pieces—assuming they’re made to be high quality and are repaired when they show signs of damage.

How much is the average depth of a vanity?

A vanity typically will be between 20 to 24 inches deep. However, it’s possible to find vanities that are as low as 17 to 18 inches in depth. If you aren’t sure what depth works for your bathroom, taking some measurements will help.

Why are bathroom vanities so short?

This is actually more of a historic tradition than most people realize. Traditionally, vanities were made to be short in order to ensure that children would be able to reach the sink. Nowadays, that still plays a role in the way they’re designed but it’s primarily a holdover from traditions of the past.
