As a bit of an occupational hazard, I really fell in love with bathroom designs of various shapes and forms. From historical sites to the most modern spaces.

I think the bathroom is the most interesting place in the whole home to play with design. 


That's  why , today I would like to take a minute to look at the history of bathroom design, or especially the history of bathroom sinks and how they 've changes over the years.


1.Bathroom Vanities Pre-Plumbing

The very first "bathroom vanity" were really washstands like this Bonne Maman from Herbeau. 

These small wooden tables sat somewhere in your bedroom, equipped with a pitcher full of water and a bowl to wash your face and hands first thing in the morning.


                                                        

                                                                                                  


2.The Beginning Of The Bathroom

It wasn't until the Victorian era that bathrooms became their own separate rooms and started to resemble what we would think of as a modern bathroom. 

Bathroom vanities evolved into wall mounted sinks like this ceramics. 

At the time, all sinks would have had two faucets – hot and cold.



                                                                                                    


3.Victorian Ideal Of Bathing

During the Victorian Era and continuing into the Edwardian period, it as widely believed to be beneficial to your health---

Especially for women, to remain in the tidy as long as possible after bathing.As such, bathrooms during this period were less utilitarian than the ones we have today.

Like that mirrored the form (and functionality) of aristocratic dressing tables.


                                                                                             



4.Bathroom Vanities As Bathroom Furnishings

This is the first true bathroom vanity, and an influence that can still be seen in design today.

As indoor plumbing improved, console vanities evolved into more functional (actual) bathroom vanities.

These were often based on the design of furniture – dressing tables, chests, or cabinets – you might find elsewhere in the home.


                                                                                                         

                                                                                                    


5.Transitioning From Tradition

Over the last hundred years, these furniture-style bathroom vanities have gradually become more simplified. 

Transitional bathroom vanities maintain the form of antique furniture styles.

But rather than having elaborate floral carvings and detailed,column style borders, these embellishments are stripped away in place of simpler lines. 

This creates a new type of bathroom vanity that nods toward the elegance of Victorian parlor or bedroom style baths while making them more casual and comfortable for a more modern setting.



                                                                                                           


6.Contemporary Comfort (Or: Modern Minimalism)-Modern bathroom vanity

The bathroom is a place to get ready on those busy weekday mornings, but it’s also a space where you can relax and unwind too. 

We have created spaces of luxury and comfort that incorporate technology such as underfloor heating, steam-free mirrors, televisions, clever lighting schemes and digital showers.
