A piece of furniture can be remade into a bathroom vanity.

A bathroom vanity isn't limited to standard cabinetry and surfaces meant only for the bath area, according to HGTV.com.


For a cottage look, renovate an old bedroom dresser into a vanity. The back and some interior shelves need to be eliminated to make room for plumbing, and the top will be replaced with a countertop to accommodate a sink and fixtures.


But the façade of the original furniture can be retained with any trim, beadboard or hardware that conveys the vintage style.
 

Another updated vanity look is to paint and decorate the front doors to look like the front door of a home. Use a vibrant color that offsets more subdued tones in the bathroom. For hardware, use traditional door knockers, centered in the doors, instead of corner pulls, the website recommends.


Wallpaper can also be attached in a print or pattern that makes the vanity the focal point of the bath area. To make the paper lie flat, use wood filler to smooth out any carved details on the doors.


Window treatments that match the style chosen for a new vanity can include metal window blinds, which are an economical, durable and easy-to-clean choice for bathrooms in a wide range of colors.
