Live‐ edge vanity tops can be combined with floating vanity units made in a different material or can also be used as standalone pieces that offer exactly what you need in smaller bathrooms and powder rooms. They range from the spectacular to the simple, and yet every one of these vanities ushers in a cool, organic vibe that gives the bathroom a major facelift. Whether you are looking to give your existing bathroom a quick makeover or still searching for that ideal vanity to complete your new powder room, here is an option that you just cannot overlook.
It is the rugged natural edge of the vanity top that gives it a unique identity and allows you to create a custom bathroom that is truly exceptional. But it is important to ensure that the lighting around the live‐ edge vanity is absolutely perfect to bring out its very best and highlight all those knots, nicks and cuts that make it so very special.
Think of a shower‘s interior as a blank canvas awaiting your artistic touch. Though you‘ll save money by creating walls from sheets of acrylic, cultured marble, or solid‐ surfacing, you‘ll produce more interesting perimeters and floors if you work with ceramic, stone, glass, or marble tiles. Use varying sizes and shades of the same type of tile to create contrasting borders, fetching niches, and mosaic murals on shower walls. For natural interest underfoot, install river rock or pebbled tile floors. Arrange inexpensive ceramic tiles (in a monochromatic mix or a bold blend) on the walls above a prefab shower unit or across the walls of a walk‐ in cubicle.
