Bathrooms are often small rooms with limited space for decorative details. Designer Karla Dreyer visited Modern Bathrooms to show you how to refresh the look of your vanity with design details that add both function and personality!
PERSONAL TOUCHES Create a look that is truly personalized by including items you use and love. In this vignette, we included a beautiful bubble bath, loofah, pretty toothbrush holder and candle.
BASKETS AND TRAYS Baskets and trays are great choices for functional décor. I used a Lucite tray on the vanity as a place to gather items without taking up extra visual space. I also added a basket to provide texture and hidden storage.
LUXURIOUS DETAILS Plush towels, a lovely soap or pretty candle are great ways to add a luxurious feel while also being decorative and functional.
ORGANIC TOUCHES Adding a plant to your bathroom is a great way to bring life and texture to the space. I love using eucalyptus in a bathroom. It looks fresh and smells amazing.

Small Vanity, Big Style
Here are a few ways to dress up a vanity in a small bathroom.
- When space is limited, accents need to be both functional and stylish. A pretty candle and great looking soap are perfect examples.
- If floor space is available, use a decorative basket to add both style and function to your bathroom!
- In a small bathroom, choosing a vanity that offers color and plenty of storage is a great way to create a functional, stylish focal point.
