If you are on the prowl for rustic modern bathroom vanity ideas, I have got a little inspo for you. In today’s post, I am sharing the floating vanity in my new powder room….
I am not gonna lie….
It kind of feels odd to be sharing a room that I had absolutely zero to do with in terms of the remodel process, but it is now my freakin’ house!
And because it is now my freakin’ house, you know damn well I will be blogging about all of the rooms- regardless of the fact that I had nothing to do with the renovation.
While this powder room is considerably small and quite challenging to photograph with my fancy camera and tripod, I had to show you this charming, rustic floating vanity designed by the previous owners.
So that you can see the entire room, I have included a short video of the room in this post as well.
As you can probably infer, our sellers were self-proclaimed “wood people” and while I was never a huge “wood person” myself (maybe a wood beam here or there), I can now very much see the appeal.
Given that most of the home (all of the main living areas) is constructed of cedar board and batten walls, the owners wanted to give a nod to the essence of this lake cottage by using live edge cedar as the vanity material.
Considering the limited space of the bathroom, the floating vanity design makes the room feel much less crowded than a traditional, floor-to-celling piece would have.
While it may be difficult to see from photos, there is a slight sheen to the vanity which I assume is a top- coat to help protect the cedar from any potential water damage- given it’s close proximity to the sink.
Forgive the low-quality photo of the toilet above (this pic and the included video was shot with my old a$$ iPhone), but I wanted to show you what was on the other side of the floating vanity- the porcelain thrown.
With all of the warm elements at play here (the wood baseboards and vanity along with the creamy- white paint color), I like how the marble hex tile flooring and brushed nickel, wall-mounted sink cool everything off a bit.
To add a little boho whimsy and color, I love how the previous homeowner flanked a gold round mirror with hanging succulents.
And when going with a floating vanity design, you know you can’t just go with any old, junky plastic P-Trap pipe. To compliment the wall-mounted sink, a chrome P-Trap works beautifully and isn’t an eyesore.
While I have no “before” photos to share of this space, apparently this room was originally windowless and contained a shower with puke green tiles (remember …this house is mid-century modern).
To see a full panorama of this bathroom, be sure to watch the video I have embedded.
While I am tinkering with the idea of wallpaper in this room eventually, for now, I am pretty happy with this space.
Thank you so much for stopping by this week! 🙂
It would be so helpful if you could share this post with a friend or on social media. Thank you for paying it forward!
Now get out there and design some good vibes along with a fabulous life!
