Wouldn't it be so nice not to have to share bathroom counter space or wait for a turn at the sink to brush your teeth? If your bathroom is spacious enough for a double vanity, you're in luck. Here are some ideas to get you started in picking the one that's just right for your home.
Some elements to keep in mind when designing your double vanity are symmetry, ample counter space between sinks, a large mirror spanning both sinks (or one mirror over each sink) and lighting.
If there is not enough clearance in front of both sinks to stand comfortably, you shouldn't try to cram a double vanity into your bathroom. Luckily, this homeowner made it work with the tub positioning.

One benefit of a double vanity is the extra storage gained beneath. Lots of drawers and shelves mean a clutter-free bathroom and never missing a clean towel or a roll of toilet paper.
If you love a certain design for a sink, like this organically circular vessel sink, a double vanity is a great opportunity to celebrate your admiration by installing two of it.
Even in a minimalist bathroom without closed storage and not much counter depth, a double vanity can work with vessel sinks and single-lever faucets mounted to the sides of the sinks.
Alternatively, a double vanity can be accomplished with one extra long sink split into two compartments with two faucets. In this version, there is a divide between the two compartments that offers some elevated horizontal surface in addition to the counter space below.
I really like the concept behind this custom-poured concrete sink.
A custom-built wall-mounted vanity unit with cove lighting, shelf niches and a long expanse of poured sink and counter offers a boutique hotel feel at home.
Jack and Jill bathrooms are a great place to incorporate the double vanity. Here you can be more playful with shapes, colors and materials.
Installing two identical off-the-shelf single vanities next to each other is a solution when the bathroom is large enough for a double vanity but the budget is not.
Two identical pedestal sinks with a storage unit in between is a cute vintage-inspired iteration of the double vanity concept.
A utility wash sink, like Kohler's Brockway, is brilliant for incorporating the traditional double vanity in an untraditional way.
