Bathroom vanity colors are a hot topic among designers and Pittsburgh homeowners who want to create a spa-like bathroom, a fresh contemporary aesthetic, or an overall timeless design. For this feature of the bathroom, the vanity can set the stylistic tone but should also be considered as part of a cohesive design. When you're working with your designer to choose your bathroom vanity color, think about the scheme of your bathroom and how you want to feel in the space.
Ideally, your bathroom vanity color should delight you for years to come. So, let’s talk about some of the top bathroom vanity color trends today, and how they might fit into your bathroom remodeling project.
1. Pantone Color of the Year
Every year, the color mavens at Pantone (the color authority for designers) choose a top color of the year. Check with the Pantone oracle before you embark on any Pittsburgh home remodeling project, including your bathroom color scheme. The 2023 color of the year is Viva Magenta, a vibrant jewel tone that walks the line between warm and cool.
Though the color is bold, it's also versatile for its ambiguity, with tones of red and blue that will be brought out differently depending on what it's paired with in your bathroom. Inspired by the crimson cochineal, it's a different take on the earth tone trend sweeping interior design.
2. Light Blue Bathroom Vanities
Varying shades of blue continue to be extremely popular in 2023 for their power to elicit calm and serenity. Light blue can range from a very soft powder blue to a more vibrant aqua. Blue is a great color for your spa bathroom and pairs extremely well with white: both cool whites and warm cream whites. Pair with gray for a timeless look, orange of any shade to energize your bathroom, or black accents for a bold art deco feel.
3. Charcoal Bathroom Vanities
The intensity of near-black charcoal gray feels sophisticated and can be grounded with warm taupe, or punched up with bright white. Charcoal has the capacity to suit almost every design style, from traditional to contemporary. Accent with brushed nickel for a traditional feel or gold fixtures for a glam aesthetic. Art deco is a very popular style in 2023 and charcoal gray suits this trend beautifully.
4. White Bathroom Vanities
White has been the most popular bathroom vanity color for years. It never really goes out of style, and there are many different kinds of white. Because it’s been so popular for so long, there is always the danger of overusing it. That’s why it can be helpful to consider other forms of white that have elements of gray or beige in them, depending on whether you want a warmer or cooler white vanity in your bathroom.
White is also a fantastic background color for experimenting with trending colors on easily-replaceable elements, like rugs, shades, and décor.
5. Light Green Bathroom Vanities
Bringing nature into your bathroom design is a hot trend that isn’t going away anytime soon. A host of greens, from sage and light pine to seafoam and mint are very popular in 2023. The best thing about green is it can be energizing or calming, trending or timeless, and cozy or bold. The green you choose for your bathroom vanity should coordinate with the other tones in your bathroom. Warm, yellow undertones in green should be paired with other warm tones while cool-toned greens should be set against cool whites, grays, and blues.
6. Natural Wood Bathroom Vanities
Sure, natural wood isn't necessarily a color, per se. However, natural wood tones do offer a certain aesthetic quality that stands against any paint color you could choose. It lends to the biophilic design trend that's had a stronghold on interior design for years, including 2023 trends. Natural wood, like many other colors on this list, comes in the full spectrum of warm to cool. Also, different grains will work with different design styles. Linear grain, heavily pronounced swooping grain, and nearly invisible grain all have their rightful place in common interior design styles.
7. Emerald Green Bathroom Vanities
Deep jewel tones are everywhere in 2023. Emerald green is especially decadent and luxurious in bathrooms. Many are using this rich tone on tile and furnishings, but it's also a perfect color for your vanity. With a glossy finish, emerald green plays perfectly into an Art deco style. A muted emerald can appear more grounded and earthy.
Pairing emerald green with white reads as traditional, while pairing it with black can read as more contemporary. Either way, emerald green in your bathroom is a highly sophisticated choice that communicates luxury and style.
