Inspiring ideas on how to update and customize a bathroom vanity!

I would like to renovate my bathroom vanity by adding more storage and giving it a new colour. Do you have any ideas?
Stella, Newmarket – Toronto

Sprucing up the old vanity in your bathroom is a good idea, especially if it is rundown or outdated. It will rejuvenate your bathroom and, if done well, can even change the whole look of the room!

There are practical and inexpensive solutions for adding storage, such as installing a kitchen spice rack inside the cupboard doors. Keep lotions and soaps neatly organized, and storage bins and shelves will help maximize cupboard space. Therefore, you will have your accessories on hand, without cluttering your countertop vanity.
