Making the most of every square inch of a bathroom can be tricky, but there are many ways to get clever when it comes to storage.
Instead of opting for a single, pre-built vanity, why not double the fun? Between IKEA’s Godmorgon line (which was created specifically for bathrooms) and their Sektion collection (which is ideal for larger spaces in need of extra-deep cabinets), you can get the bathroom you’ve always dreamed of without the cost of a custom piece.
Whether you’re aiming for a traditional ensuite, a clean and modern oasis, or a relaxing retreat, these six innovative double vanity ideas showcase some of our favorite storage solutions.

Brass and white was the winning combination for this sophisticated bathroom renovation. Detroit-based blogger Mable Cheung updated her double vanity with Semihandmade’s Supermatte White Shaker cabinetry and sleek lucite pulls from Etsy. She then added modern CB2 mirrors and gorgeous sconces from Hudson Valley Lighting Group.

Photographer Terri Glanger turned her Dallas main bath into a peaceful retreat with IKEA Sektion cabinets, which offer additional depth for more storage than the Godmorgon line. DIY paint-ready slab fronts are painted in Sherwin-Williams Versatile Gray for a beautiful, neutral space that won’t go out of style soon.

This entire Santa Barbara Foothills ranch home was completely transformed by Hearth Home Interiors, but the best part is the main spa-like bathroom reveal and extra-spacious double vanity. The key to this renovation was using Sektion cabinets to add plenty of storage and upgrade them with Tahoe Impression door fronts, bold hardware,, and honed quartzite countertops.
Pretty in Pink

The Minneapolis home of Steve and Margo Henke makes the best use of color. Case in point: the all-pink bathroom starts off with gold-and-rose encaustic tile, plus playful Semihandmade Supermatte Blush Slab fronts, which blend perfectly with the light oak floors and classic subway tile.
