Start with space
How much do you have, and are there any restrictions on where the vanity can be placed? Do you have the room for a traditional one unit horizontal vanity, or does it make more sense to divide it into two or more pieces? In a larger bathroom an L-shaped vanity can also work well.
Move on to basins
You may just want one, or need two, but how many can you fit in comfortably? Do they need to be side by side? Would one sink to the far side and a flat counter space to the side be more practical for you?
This is the exciting part because you know what you are shopping for; you only have to decide if your perfect vanity will be antique, traditional or something unique. A restored antique piece may have lots of interesting drawers and doors, while a modern style unit may favor more open storage spaces, and be easy to paint if you like bright colors.
Or you could go for a free-standing vanity, a stand-alone basin with mounted on the wall, with storage space being somewhere else, or just a simple counter-basin(s) combo.
Top it off
You may choose to have a worktop incorporating the basins, or as a stand-alone, either way, it can be made from a wide variety of materials to suit the bathroom décor and style. Popular choices include marble, wood, laminate, quartz and granite. They are all practical, but some are definitely more luxurious looking and feeling than others.
Now you have chosen the furniture you can enjoy watching it come together to create a very special bathroom that reflects your personal tastes, and will make you happy for a long time. Enjoy.
