Planning a bathroom remodel or designing a new space? A great place to start is the bathroom vanity since it tends to incorporate the most materials and serve as a centerpiece in the space. You’ll want to select elements that reflect your desired style and support the high-use space. For example, choosing Cambria for bathroom countertops means your vanity top will be durable, easy-clean, and hygienic (no moisture or bacteria will seep through the nonabsorbent quartz surface). With beauty and benefits in mind, we’ve curated fifteen bathroom vanity ideas to help inspire your master bath, powder room, or other bathroom project.
1. Pair marble-like quartz with gray cabinetry for classic elegance.
With a medley of warm neutrals and intriguing movement, Highgate is the perfect countertop to pair with gray cabinets for a glamorous master bath as in this bathroom renovation from blogger Mia Mia Mine. After frustration using marble in her guest bath (“It was pretty disappointing to see scratches and water spots so quickly on it,” she says), the blogger opted for Cambria, a superior alternative to marble. “Every design was breathtaking,” she says. “We had always loved Cambria products—they’re nonporous, nonabsorbent, and harder than granite so they’re really maintenance free—perfect for a bathroom!”

7. Showcase spa-like luxury with a floating quartz vanity and shelf.

An Instagram favorite, this mod master bath by Sire Design makes a striking statement with a floating Rose Bay vanity.

8. Contrast shapes and textures from vanity and backsplash to mirror and lighting.
Playing with contrasting shapes and textures is a great way to liven up a neutral palette. This bathroom by AFT Construction and E. Interiors pairs gray-toned woods with marble-like Swanbridge for a versatile and inviting color palette. The angular lines of the bathroom vanity contrast the rounded backsplash tile, while the square floor tile embraces abstract lines and a subtle color pop. A hexagon mirror is a fresh alternative to square or round vanity mirrors, softened by rounded wicker pendants. For another vanity featuring Swanbridge from the same designer and builder, see our post on luxe marble-alternative spaces.

9. Get a concrete look with better performance with gray quartz countertops.
Concrete countertops are heavy and tough to install, making them impractical for a bathroom vanity. Get a similar look and added performance benefits with one of Cambria’s many gray quartz designs. In this master bath by Brian Patrick Flynn, Carrick bathroom countertops pair with olive green cabinetry and stacked subway tile for contemporary sophistication.

10. Accentuate a bold countertop pattern with matte black cabinets.
Bathroom countertops with bold veining or dense movement, such as one of Cambria’s granite alternatives, offer a captivating look. If the design features dark undertones or black accents, opt for matte black cabinets to complement the beautiful details of the design. Complete the look with matte black hardware, fixtures, or other details. This bathroom by Jaclyn Peters Design pairs Summerhill countertops and backsplash with matte black cabinets, faucet, mirror, towel rack, light fittings, and vanity decor. If you’re choosing a design with deep brown or blue undertones, you can achieve a similar effect with dark wood or navy cabinetry to complement the countertops.
Matte black complements the bold pattern and darker details of the Summerhill™ countertops and backsplash.

11. Create a streamlined look with an integrated Cambria sink.
Cambria’s advanced fabrication techniques and uncompromising quality mean the possibilities for custom vanities are practically endless. An integrated sink offers a modern minimalist look and extends the benefits of the countertop to the sink basin, with easy-clean convenience and durability. In this space from Beautiful Space Co., an integrated Torquay vanity sink makes for a sleek, industrial-look. We love the look of integrated Cambria sinks for residential and commercial spaces alike. Due to the high-quality quartz material, Cambria can be fabricated to far greater precision than granite or quartz. If you’re considering an integrated sink or other custom Cambria application, contact a dealer near you to discuss the options for your space.
