Found a relatively affordable contemporary modern bathroom vanity

Posted by Vikas Wadhwa at December 07. 2005

I know there have been a few threads about affordable contemporary vanities. Affordable means different things to different people...I know you can put together a vanity and sink, etc from ikea for $200-$300. Also, you can spend $1000+ on custom made sinks out of concrete, etc. You can also go to places like Ann Sacks, Waterworks, but you won't find a single vanity there for less than $1,500. So, on my search for a contemporary vanity, I found at the place I would least expect Neiman Marcus, their new Studio vanity for $799...it includes the vanity, the sink, and the faucet, so I thought that was a good deal since the sink and faucet can often cost a couple hundred each at many places. And this vanity seems to work for me given I have 2 small bahrooms. Just thought i'd share since i have seen the threads out there for modern vanities...i'm sure people out there will think they can make something like this on their own, but i think it's tough to get the finishes you will find in this product - i actually went to Neimen Marcus and looked at the piece and it looked pretty good...

Studio Vanity: $799

If you like the look, you can replicate the whole thing on ebay. The bowl sinks can be had for about $50, the faucet will cost you about $40 (might not last forever, but hey, it's 40 bucks), and you can do an imitation vanity for about $1-200. as for the finishes, you can go to a retail fixture store and get a pretty close approximation of the chrome stand. the countertop you can make out of surplus granite, tiled backerboard, thick lexan plastic, whatever you want. I'm a big fan of butcherblock wood. Stain and seal, and they look great and are cheap. That's the whole point: creating something unique and saving a s%itload of money. Short of that, $799 for an entire vanity set is not a bad price for retail, particularly given the source. I've posted these pics before, but here's a couple shots of my vanity.

Ingredients:
1 Ikea over the counter cabinet: $free (came w/kitchen)
2 Stainless Ikea doors: $free (came w/kitchen)
2 Ikea Perfekt cover panels (no cutting neccesary: perfect fit)
1 set Ikea cabinet legs: $10
butcher block countertop $5 from as-is ikea
1 ikea sink: $38 (as is, of course)
1 waterfall faucet: $40 + $10 shipping, ebay
1 set braided water lines and 1/2 to 1/2 inch nipples. For some reason, the retards that sell fancy looking faucets refuse to make 3/8 connectors on their hose.

Vessel sinks are mounted on top of the vanity rather than embedded in it. While glass vessel sinks can look stunningly contemporary, stone vessel sinks in a variety of finishes - marble, malachite, granite etc - can serve as a pleasing vintage-y contrast to your ultra-modern bathroom.

Shockingly, the vanity you found seems like a great deal. I would never have expected that from Neiman Marcus. The least expensive vanity I found was this, and it is both more expensive and worse looking than the model you shared.

Thanks for the tip!
