12 Scandinavian-Inspired Bathroom Vanities That Prove Less Is More

Subway tiles, muted colors, and the occasional trailing plant may be the telltale markers of a Scandinavian-inspired bathroom, but the vanity is where you have the opportunity to fully ace the look. The key is to find one that's streamlined and modern — think sleek hardware, solid or flat panel cabinet doors, and minimalist legs. In short, it's all about less is more.

When it comes to the vanity's finish, a glossy white or moody charcoal will invite a high-contrast feel. If you're looking to bring in a touch of warmth, opt for wood and balance it out with a geometric floor tile. Tie it all together with matte black or brushed brass fixtures and lighting in a complementary scheme.
