Single Sink Vanity Cabinet

Ideal for smaller bathrooms or powder rooms, the single sink vanity cabinet offers a compact and efficient design. It comes in several varieties such as the pedestal sink, vanity with cabinets, console sink, and more.

Single sink vanities are available in various widths, allowing you to choose the one that best suits your needs. Larger vanities offer more countertop space and smaller ones may not have any at all.

The streamlined look of the single vanity can be a great choice for minimalist or modern bathroom designs.


  • Space-efficient for smaller bathrooms
  • Cost-effective compared to larger configurations
  • Easier installation and plumbing requirements

Console or Open Shelf Vanity Cabinet

If you prefer a more open and accessible storage solution, an open shelf vanity cabinet, also known as, a console vanity, might be the perfect fit for your bathroom.

This configuration replaces traditional cabinet doors with open shelves, allowing you to showcase decorative items or frequently used essentials. Open shelf vanities work well in bathrooms with a rustic, industrial, or eclectic design theme, providing a sense of warmth and character.


  • Easy access to frequently used items
  • Allows for creative display of decorative items or plants
  • Adds a sense of openness and airiness to the bathroom
  • Can be combined with other storage options for added versatility
