A place to rest: Following on from above, a permanent shower seat or a folding bench seat is a good idea for shaving your legs or having a sit down while your conditioning treatment sets for 10 minutes.
Your game face: Do you stand at the vanity to put your makeup on? Would you rather have a place to sit to do so? A place with a big mirror and all of your cosmetics stored neatly at hand? If so, consider a makeup desk. Lighting is important here. Try for natural lighting or white bulbs.
Counter Top: Granite countertops are as popular as ever at the moment but have a pretty big price tag. To cut downs costs, see if you can access an offcut containing imperfections. Keep in mind that your sink basin will take up a lot of surface area, so if the imperfection is located where the sink or faucets will be then you won’t see it anyway!
Sink and Vanity: Right now, one of the biggest trends in bathrooms is also one that budget DIYers can pull off with style. The trend is using old dressers as sink pedestals. You simply cut out the top of the dresser to accommodate a sink insert, cut into or remove interior drawers as necessary, and cut holes in the back for plumbing.
