8 Contemporary bathroom vanity designs you can DIY

International designers Sanindusa offer a range of contemporary bathroom furniture that is good looking and an option for anyone with a bit of DIY savvy. The range includes floating bathroom countertops and space-saving cabinets that can be made using Formica or MelaWood, or even spray painted in your choice of finish to match your personal colour preference.


Grab your power tools and pop into your local Builders Warehouse to see the range of Formica and MelaWood finishes that you can have cut to size. You can choose from wood grains or solids to make your bathroom vanity, all depending on the final look and style you want for your bathroom.





Whether or a small guest bathroom, or a master suite, these bathroom vanities are an easy DIY projects if you have the right tools, materials and supplies. Take down the measurements for your bathroom vanity and let the guys a Builders Warehouse cut to size for you. Then all that's required is to assemble and finish.

As an even easier option, have 16mm SupaWood cut to size and paint the individual pieces before assembly. You can always do touch-ups afterwards.


When using SupaWood for bathroom furniture, the piece should be primed with wood primer before applying at least three coats of paint. You can paint with Plascon Double Velvet, Plascon Velvaglo, or Plascon Polvin topped off with two coats of clear acrylic sealer.

Water and timber or board don't go well together. When making your own bathroom vanity add some rubber washers to the base to lift it off the floor and prevent moisture spoiling your furniture.
