Gray Bathroom Vanities
If you want to do something a little different, but totally on-trend for your bathroom, look no further than gray bathroom vanities. More subdued than black or white, gray bathroom vanities are increasingly popular for their minimalist, Scandinavian-inspired aesthetic that provides something of a blank slate for the rest of your bathroom design.

If you’re thinking about going gray, you may be wondering what sizes you can buy. The good news is, with gray’s relative popularity right now, more and more manufacturers are ensuring they offer a gray bathroom vanity at virtually any size, from a 24-inch bathroom vanity, ideal for powder rooms, all the way up to bathroom 60-inch models that easily accommodate double sinks.
You can also find mid-sized gray bathroom vanities that are ideal for shared bathrooms, powder rooms, or more compact bathroom spaces. A gray, 30-inch bathroom vanity provides a bit of additional counterspace for your essentials, but if you want even more room, go up to a 36-inch bathroom vanity. If you’re really set on a double-sink, but short on space, you can purchase a 48-inch vanity. But be prepared to have limited countertop room.
Gray Vanity Design Choices
Given that Apartment Therapy cited gray bathroom vanities as one of the year’s biggest design trends, it’s not a surprise that there are a ton of cool design considerations, like what type of cabinets your vanity features, or what material it’s made out of.
The actual finish of your gray bathroom vanity will also shift the mood of your bathroom. For example, a gray weathered wood vanity gives off farmhouse chic vibes and looks great with an oversized integrated sink or clean white countertops. Meanwhile, a high gloss-gray floating vanity can give your bathroom a futuristic, design magazine-worthy look.
Something else you'll want to consider is whether you want a gray bathroom vanity with a top. They tend to be cheaper and simpler to install. But if you have your heart set on a particular sink style, you can purchase a vanity without a top. This allows you to shop for a countertop and sink that matches your dream bathroom design idea perfectly.
And of course keep in mind there’s more than one shade of gray. A dark gray bathroom vanity is a masculine, sophisticated alternative to bold black. For a softer look, go for a pretty dove grey bathroom vanity. This useful guide from Kylie M Interiors can help you select the perfect shade of gray or greige for your bathroom vanity project. As she points out, gray tends to pick up undertones from the surrounding space. So be mindful of your paint, lighting, window, and tile choices when opting for this color of bathroom vanity.
