Create a stylish and functional vanity with these tips from Executive Editor Jessica S. Thuston.
[MUSIC] In a bathroom, install a picture light over a vanity instead of traditional wall-hung bath sconces. It's a nice change of pace, and it illuminates a mirror just as you would a piece of art. In a bathroom where the side of your vanity is especially visible, try using a waterfall edge, where your counter top material wraps the edge, goes all the way to the floor. It's a great way to have a really seamless look and also show off a beautiful piece of marble. The ideal width for a bathroom vanity is at least 36 inches. That gives you enough space for a nice wide sink basin, but also enough counter top space for all of your essentials.
