Who says your bathroom has to be boring? These days, statement wallpaper, gorgeous marble, and bohemian flourishes aren't just reserved for the high-traffic areas of your home. As self-care becomes more of a priority, we want our areas of solitude to be just as beautifully designed and efficient, as say, our kitchen. And vanities are the workhouse of the bathroom: They store your beauty products galore, while looking chic and acting as a focal point. To help kickstart your bathroom renovation ideas, here are the big vanity trends we're seeing everywhere.

Floating Vanities

Not only are floating vanities modern and chic, but they're also great for storage. The one thing you don't want is less space. Interior designer Becki Owens says it's her favorite bathroom trend, and she uses the design in several projects because of its open, airy feel. "Floating vanities can provide more room for unique ways to accessorize a bathroom," she says. "In one of my projects, I placed pretty woven baskets under a floating vanity to store essentials. It gave the space more personality and interest."

Wood Vanities

Pretty wood vanities liven up a bathroom, which can sometimes be dark and sterile. For a farmhouse feel, go for a vanity with light or reclaimed wood that exposes grain lines. "A wood vanity in a white oak adds warmth and a casualness to a space-which is an overall mood clients are after in 2019," says interior designer Kriste Michelini. "[They] are on the rise as the smooth texture of the wood often appeal more to the human touch than the cooler materials."

Marble Countertop

Marble is everywhere in 2019 (even water bottles) and for good reason. The sophisticated stone instantly elevates a room. "The bathroom is a working space that you want to be functional and beautiful," says interior designer Sarah Bartholomew. It's why she gravitates to vanities with a marble top ("in a perfect world Calcutta Gold") with custom, built-in cabinetry below.

Console Table

This classic style is making a comeback and we love all the ornate and modern leg options we're seeing. "This trending design enhances a space with style and personalization," says Eric Moore, Interior Designer at Kohler. But as stylish and regal as they are, let's face it, with no storage they aren't the most practical in a main bathroom. "Console table vanities, such as the Kohler Memoirs (pictured), are perfect for powder rooms," he says. "They provide an open and light feel, while decorative legs make a statement."
