Looking to re-vamp your bathroom?  New or re-purposed bathroom vanities can make your whole bathroom look different.  Depending on how big and what you want to do, re-purposing might be the more expensive route to go.  If you have moved into an older home, this is something that you may need to do to make the bathroom appear newer and cleaner.  You also may need to make this purchase for a new home, and in that case you are open to which option that you would prefer the most, something that you helped work on, or something brand new.

Looking online for re-purposing ideas for your bathroom vanities will help spark all kinds of ideas.  If you have decent cabinets that can be sanded down or re-painted, this may look better than purchasing a new vanity.  Vintage looks are in style and you can get the desired look yourself, if you so choose to.  Looking in antique stores and consignment shops, you may also be able to find an old bathroom vanity that you are able to fix up yourself, or in used furniture stores; sometimes they already have them re-purposed already.

By doing it yourself, you will be able to choose whatever color you want that coordinates with your bathroom.  You can give it a color pop or neutral tones, whatever meets your needs.  Replacing the sink on top can help your bathroom look newer and cleaner, even without changing the cabinets below.  Unless you plan on changing your bathroom again in the future, you should think ahead when decorating and get paint that will last if you plan on painting, and counter tops and sinks that are heavy duty and can withstand the use over time.

This is also a personal preference on what you want your bathroom to look like.  If you want a polished and new looking bathroom, new may be the best way to go for you.  Be sure to measure the space exactly if you are planning on replacing your existing bathroom vanities and take it with you to the furniture store so that you are able to get the exact replacement that you desire.  Local hardware as well as major chains will be stocked with bathroom vanities in all shapes, colors, sizes and styles.

Basically, when replacing or repairing your bathroom vanities, it comes down to what you want your bathroom to look like and maybe even cost.  Major home improvement chain stores can offer credit cards for the purchase of new bathroom vanities.  This may be a better option if you are looking to fix something as soon as possible.  If you have more time and desire to do the fixing yourself, you may just need to invest in some sanding tools and paint.  Also, if you are looking to replace but want to look for something more vintage (and hopefully cheaper!), you should try used furniture, antique stores, or even your local Goodwill.
