These photos are comparing 2 different styles of bathroom cabinets and vanities.  Both have drawers, a seated make up area, mirrors and a sink.  There are design elements that make these 2 vanities look completely different.


These bathroom cabinets and vanities have a traditional look for the following reasons:

The vanity has a traditional raised panel door style, with traditional handles and knobs.  The baseboard wraps around the base of the cabinets.  There is a marble top with an under mount sink and traditional faucet.  The crown molding wrapping both wall cabinets and the central mirror, with a decorative appliqué in the center.  The small cabinet to the right holds a swing down clothing hamper with a cloth liner.



These bathroom cabinets and vanities have a contemporary look for the following reasons:

This vanity doesn't go to the floor; it is wall mounted.  The absence of baseboard and crown molding is a contemporary look.  The door style is a flat slab with simple chrome knobs.  The acrylic counter top wraps a semi-recessed mounted vessel bowl tall with a tall single lever faucet  The different wall cabinet heights wrap around the wall paneling system. 


If using a stone counter top, metal brackets mounted inside the vanity would be necessary to hold this vanity to the wall.
