The bathroom can be a spa-like space that makes you feel immediately at ease or, if we're being honest, a perfect storm for haphazardly keeping your beauty products, toiletries, and dirty clothes in one place.
One element that can play a major role in how you use the space: your bathroom vanity. It's where you start and end your day, so it's, of course, a key part of any bathroom. But if you're looking for more storage to keep things in check, we recommend taking into consideration an open shelf bathroom vanity.
Here's some inspiration to get you started.
1. A clean and modern look.
2. A twist on industrial vibes.
3. A rush of navy.
4. A farmhouse rustic twist.
5. A minimal and edgy pick.
6. A classic reclaimed wood look.
7. A shelf within a shelf.
We love the way this minimalist bathroom vanity actually offers different levels of storage and display. A larger shelf holds slippers and towels while a smaller shelf nearby makes a great spot for washcloths.
8. An (almost) all-white vibe.
Don't want too much fuss or frill? Opt for a white sink cabinet like this one from IKEA. It's got simple hardware and just enough drawer space, perfect for getting the job done.
9. A minimal vanity with a single drawer.
Sometimes too much storage space can actually create more clutter (more chances to toss random things inside!). Keep it minimal with a single large drawer and a small open shelf for towels.
10. A rustic and traditional look.
11. A simple and modern approach.
For those of us who really want to dial things down and just have the essentials in our bathroom, this vanity checks off all the boxes. The open shelf is actually in the middle of the furniture piece, giving it a unique look and plenty of space to store taller things.
12. A Scandi-inspired teak addition.
We love a good Scandinavian-inspired bathroom and something about this teak item calls for minimal decor and natural materials. The two open shelves in the middle offer a little space to show off your favorite bathroom accessories or place items you use every day.
