The focal point for any bathroom is the vanity and sink cabinetry. While it is all the rage to update your vanity with a beautiful sink, what's more important is the storage that it can provide.

Sources for Affordable Farmhouse Bathroom Vanity
Here are some of my favorite sources and places I check out before shopping for bathroom vanity upgrades. If you are looking to save some money and get some cheap renovation supplies, these are my absolute favorite sources for affordable decor.
Houzz. Houzz does not only curate beautiful designs for your home, but they also have a feature where they've curated the best list of home decor I have ever seen.
Home Depot. Home Depot has an amazing collection of beautiful farmhouse bathroom cabinets, especially for those who are wanting to DIY their own installation.
Lowes. I absolutely love Lowes because they have gorgeous stock of inventory of barnwood bathroom vanities that are absolutely gorgeous. You won't be able to find a better combination of both value and design.
Birch Lane. I absolutely love Birch Lane's collection. I feel like its a level down from Pottery Barn, but without the crazy price tag. They are a sister site to Wayfair, which I also love because they have a gorgeous collection of french farmhouse bathroom vanities as well.
Overstock. I feel like their name does them a disservice. It's not just overstock items, they have a ton of amazingly gorgeous bathroom vanity sinks that are not "overstock", rather it's just inventory stock they have! I know that sound weird, but literally, it's like inventory stock like any other store!
Menards. I aboslutely love Menards because of their value. While I will often go and leave with nothing, there are times when I find an amazing score when I was just window shopping. You might check them out first before exploring all the others!
Sutherlands. If you don't have one of these in your town, you are missing out! They are literally the cheaper brother of Home Depot. That's pretty much all I have to stay about that!
Sources for Luxury Bathroom Vanities
Now, if you are in a spot where you can afford to spend a little more than average for a new bathroom vanity, my favorite place to purchase them are Restoration Hardware, Pottery Barn, and Signature Hardware.
For someone like me, those vanities are typically out of my price range. If I had gazillions of dollars to spend, I might be able to cough up that much money for a new vanity.
