My worst advice came from a big box designer and regrettably, I followed it. She insisted (on numerous occasions) that my perfectly suitable (but in her words "dated") vanity should be replaced. It was replaced with three 35.5" high kitchen cabinets. Standard height is 32" and I am only 4 ft. 7" tall. I hate the new vanity. :-(

Do decorators still put decor on top of cabinets? Should I remove mine?

Not a decorator but I would take it down. Cleaner lines seem to be the current trend. But if you like it - keep it! It is your home!! Who cares what decorators think : )
