There is a reason why white bathrooms have been popular for so many years! Simply put, white bathrooms are timeless! Trends come and go, but white is a bathroom colour that will never go out of style. Designers often try to avoid bold bright colours in the bathroom in favor of the crisp simplicity of white. White is simple and clean, making it the ideal colour for any bathroom vanity.

Although a white bathroom vanity may seem safe and boring to the more creative folks out there, white is a versatile backdrop and works well with any element and any style, modern or otherwise. We are here to show you just how trendy a white bathroom can be with our simple tips below!

1. Countertop

Pairing white cabinets with a great countertop colour is one way to make a bathroom vanity shine! Even, used in the kitchen, virtually any countertop can be combined with white cabinets to create a unique look. First, choose a kitchen style and consider the two following factors:

- Colour: Grey, Beige, Brown, White, Black, and Wood are the best countertop colours to go with white cabinets. These combinations provide a low to high contrast look for any style you are looking for.

For example, a completely white selection with white countertops on white cabinets is bright and contemporary creating a clean, and sleek look, while the bold contrast of a black countertop makes the entire room feel modern. A neutral look with light grey adds depth to the bathroom without being flashy. A warm wood-looking countertop and a white vanity bring a grounded, elegant style to life.

- Material: Natural stones are luxurious; concrete adds an industrial look, while wood countertops add a rustic feel. Whatever material you choose will portray a different style in your space.

Granite and marble are naturally occurring stones with distinct patterns. Each slab is valued because of its distinct veining and swirl patterns. Quartz is a popular countertop material because of its consistent patterns, which range from elegant to brilliant. The wood countertop adds a nice natural stain to your bathroom.

Tip: For an all-white bathroom, a white countertop with light and elegant patterns can help keep everything from bleeding together.

2. Metal Handles

When it comes to cabinet hardware and white cabinets, we think of sleek metallic handles and knobs, a timeless combination we see everywhere. Think of a white cabinet as a blank canvas to express your own style with different metallic handles:  

- Traditional style: Antique handles are a vital touch for this classic look. Pairing your white bathroom vanity with classic-shaped metal handles can add extra charm, royalty, and luxury to your space.

- Modern style: Modern cabinet handles are characteristically minimalist designs with striking clean lines and geometric shapes. Handles in neutral tones such as chrome or brushed steel, with a white cabinet door can emphasize the simple look of a modern bathroom vanity design.

- Transitional style: Transitional cabinet handles are ideal for those with a modern but classic taste. They have a simple design that combines contemporary curves with traditional elements, giving them the best of both worlds.

Bathroom open storage is a growing trend that looks great in both small and large spaces. When combined with a white or monochrome cabinet, it can create a new and impressive look while also providing incredible built-in storage. The best part is that we can incorporate this trend into the white bathroom vanities in as many ways as you can think of!

Like the handle, sinks and faucets are important hardware that conveys your lifestyle and design concept. Choosing the right sink and faucet can make your simple white cabinet stand out, with a unique selection.
