Installing sinks and affixing mirrors to old pieces of furniture such as sideboards, freestanding cabinets, desks and dressers can turn them into bathroom vanities. Adding a stone slab top to furniture gives it a more traditional appearance.
Bathroom vanities should be high enough so that people can easily wash hands and reach dressing room items. Dressers can cabinets containing multiple drawers accommodate other necessities such as towels, hair driers and extra toiletries. Plumbing can hide behind the shelves and drawers of large vanities, and homeowners can hire professionals to install inbuilt sinks or counter top basins according to their design preferences. Use freestanding mirrors on the counter top, or hang them above the furniture. Older furniture may need repainting or refinishing to give it new life.
