Bathroom vanities can be a great way to create additional storage space within a bathroom, while also creating a designated space for you to get ready, unwind, or simply have for your own. While conventional style vanities normally have sink attachments and are used in the bathroom for standing room only, the more traditional or luxury-focused vanities often come with sitting areas to accommodate the more delicate aspects of your daily routine. So, if you’re considering a more luxurious style vanity for your bathroom design, we’ve compiled a list of sitting arrangements available with these types of vanity designs.
The vanity bench is possibly the most traditional vanity seating arrangement, and probably the most frequently imagined seat when imaging the vanity. The bench is a great vanity accessory because it usually slides right underneath the vanity, keeping it out of the way and freeing up that often already-limited bathroom space. A vanity bench usually has no back, which helps to force good posture, is often unnecessary anyway, as much of the time spent at a vanity is used to lean in toward the mirror, making a seat backing needless.
Chic Vanity Stool
When it comes to vanity seating, another option is the vanity chair or stool, which is often rounded with a small back. This chic design is also meant to accommodate the petite space given to many bathrooms and can definitely provide a stylistic element to your specific bathroom design as well. Many vanity stools and chairs come with specific vanity sets in matching colors, and others can be found in neutral colors to complement other vanity options.

Where space and size are no issue, vanity seating also comes in full-size chairs. Vanity chairs are often fully padded, on both the underside and the backing of the chair, allowing for ultimate comfort and luxury in your morning or nightly routine. Vanity chairs are a great option, and perhaps the most comfortable, for large bathrooms with plenty of available space and made to create a sense of luxury and sophistication.
These are just a few of the most popular vanity seating options available for your bathroom design, but be sure to do a little research before settling on any one design. It is important to consider things like the style and era of your bathroom design, color pattern, voice, and overall purpose of your bathroom before settling on any one option. Vanities can be a great opportunity to add to the style of your bathroom and make a certain statement about luxury and relaxation or even just about your personality. Give some thought to your vanity choice and make it something that you feel good about every time you walk into your bathroom.
