Almost everyone wishes they had a bigger bathroom – or, even better, a really big bathroom, like the kind you see on home improvement shows and in design catalogs. But while all that space is great for your walk-in shower and soaking tub, it’s probably more than you need for actual storage. Even if you keep your linens in your master bath, chances are you don’t need an entire bathroom worth of cabinets to store them in. Modern wall mounted vanities help you make the most of a large space, giving you the storage you need exactly where you want it, with a lean, streamlined appearance that will make your big master bath feel wide, open, and uncluttered.
Why Wall Mounted?
Shop Fresca Bathroom Vanities:
Many traditional bathroom vanities are designed after kitchen cabinet boxes: big, square, and not necessarily optimized for storage. In a large bathroom, that excess space can add up, giving you hard-to-reach shelves in places you don’t really need them. Wall mounted vanities put all your storage at about waist height, so you’ll never have to bend and stoop to find what you’re looking for.
Storing Smarter, Not Harder

Of course, opting for a wall mounted vanity functionally means cutting your storage space roughly in half, since you’ll be losing the bottom portion of the cabinets. That said, in a large bathroom it’s storage you won’t miss. Not only do wall mounted vanities keep your storage closer at hand and more centralized, they’re also typically much better divided, with smaller cabinets, segmented drawers, and accessible shelves and cubbies that make it simple to organize all your stuff in a more compact space.

The bulkiest items you’re going to store in a master bathroom will always be towels and toilet paper. Large cabinets aren’t bad for these two items: you can pack a lot into them and keep them out of sight. That said, it’s very much in vogue right now to keep your towels out in the open, like you’d see in a spa resort or high end hotel. Wall mounted vanities with small, front-facing cubbies are perfect for this, letting you keep rolled up towels (and your nice toiletries) out on display.
Show A Little Leg

While not technically wall mounted vanities, many open shelf vanities fit the same niche – especially when it comes to spa-inspired storage. If you’re nervous about giving up all that storage space (or if you’re in a mid-sized master bath rather than one fit for a king), this is a good compromise. Simple metal legs and shelves are perfect for displaying little spa luxuries – slippers, robes, rolled towels, bath oils, and so on – while keeping your everyday essentials both hidden and close at hand.
Keeping Up With Counter Space

Ultimately, the most-used “storage” in any bathroom is the counter space, and it’s the one place where switching to a wall mounted vanity won’t penalize you at all. In fact, many wall mounted vanities are designed with integrated countertops, which means the sinks are integrated seamlessly into the counters, giving you the maximum amount of surface space (and one that’s much easier to keep clean!). If you and your partner tend to use the sink at the same time, you can even find vanities with a single large, trough-style sink to make sharing the space a little easier.

Most wall mounted bathroom vanities are modern in style by design, and it’s a fair concern that a streamlined, minimalist, rectangular vanity might be too simple for a large, elaborate bathroom. Really, though, this depends a lot on the effect you’re trying to achieve. Very traditional master bathrooms can be a bit heavy for most contemporary tastes – with a strong emphasis on stone and fabric elements and lots of intricate, ornate detailing. Modern wall mounted vanities swing all the way in the opposite direction, but you can find ones with really nice wood veneers or decorative hardware that keep them from feeling too bare bones. The extra white space they provide can make your bathroom feel more open rather than bogged down in the details, and paired with other rich elements is great for mimicking a streamlined but high-end spa feel – perfect for a big, beautiful master bath.
