Creating your perfect bathroom can be costly. There’s the dream bath, the high-tech, remote-controlled power shower and the wall feature to rival the Mona Lisa.
The costs add up and before you know it, you’ve spent more on your bathroom than the rest of your house combined.
However, it doesn’t all need to be so pricey. We know the struggle of huge ambitions coupled with tight purse strings. That’s why we have a whole range of bathroom vanity units for under £200 to help you furnish your bathroom in the exact style you want - without breaking the bank.
Choosing a Vanity Unit
Choosing a bathroom vanity unit is a lot like choosing a life partner. It needs to be able to slot into your bathroom seamlessly, without intruding too much on your personal space. It also needs to look good and match the rest of the furniture. Ok, so it’s not that much like choosing a life partner, but at least we tried.
The amount of space you have should certainly be considered when choosing your bathroom vanity cabinet. It’s all very well finding your dream unit with a colossal amount of storage, but if it doesn’t actually fit into your bathroom, that post-shopping adrenaline rush isn’t going to last long.
Other factors to consider include style. If your bathroom has a set theme, even something low key, it’s important to keep it consistent. Freestanding, vintage baths won’t work too well with a modern, minimalist vanity unit, and vice versa for modern fixtures and fittings.
You may think that with a budget of £200, you can’t afford to be picky. But trust us when we say that really, you can! Your bathroom is your oyster and we’ve got something to suit everyone. From modern, stylish and sleek to nifty little space savers, here’s our pick of the best bathroom vanity units for under £200.
Best Vanities Under £200
Let’s dive straight in with this Vellamo Alpine Floorstanding Vanity Unit. This nifty cabinet is versatile, contemporary and perhaps most importantly, space saving. The internal storage resembles something like Mary Poppins’ handbag, it may look small but it can certainly hold a lot!
As well as the stunning gloss white finish, this unit has a ceramic basin, soft close doors and chrome handles. Thanks to its elegant finish and neutral look, it looks great in bathrooms of virtually any style, but we love the look of it in a modern bathroom with a pop of colour or some quirky tiles.
It comes with a 5-year guarantee and both taps and waste are sold separately. Finally, it’s sold fully-assembled so there’s no need for any DIY - sighs of relief all round. At £99.99, this vanity unit isn’t one to miss.
Next on the list is the Vellamo Aspire 600mm Floorstanding Vanity Unit, and what a treat for the eyes this one is! Finished in Black Ash, this floorstanding cabinet is beautifully modern, offering a large amount of storage as well as a stunning exterior.
The basin is made from Polymarble which is soft, durable, and easy to clean. This makes the £159.99 price tag even more attractive, as you’re unlikely to need to replace it anytime soon. In fact, Vellamo Aspire units all come with a lifetime guarantee, if that doesn’t say high quality we don’t know what does!
The doors are soft close with chrome handles, and it too is supplied fully assembled. At 600mm, it’s slightly larger than the Vellamo Alpine vanity, but still looks great as a standout feature in both small and larger bathrooms.
The first of our wall mounted vanity cabinets, this Drench Emily 600mm Wall Mounted Vanity Unit adds something a little different to your bathroom. At £189.99 it’s at the higher end of our list, but the beautiful exterior and wealth of storage make it more than worth it.
Choose from two different ceramic basins, either mid-edged or minimalist. The single box drawer is crafted from metal and uses soft-close runners, meaning very little noise and no trapped fingers!
The wall-mounted design is what makes this vanity unit special. Having space beneath can make your bathroom look bigger and makes it much easier to clean.
This Drench cabinet looks right at home in a modern bathroom and arrives fully assembled, as if we needed another reason!
Next up is another wall-mounted vanity unit, this one by Harbour Grace. At the top end of the £200 budget, this wall-mounted unit costs £199.99.
It features two metal drawers with plenty of space, and a smooth, soft-close mechanism. The bowed handles are chrome plated and the Polymarble basin is scratch resistant, durable and unquestionably contemporary.
Another vanity unit in white-gloss, this Harbour Grace cabinet will go with virtually anything. Our favourite way to style it is with other white fixtures and a stand-out feature wall. It may not make a huge statement in terms of colour, but it certainly adds a feeling of class and sophistication to any bathroom.
Finally, the single tap hole sits at the middle-back of the basin which means you can choose any mono basin mixer tap. This means you can match your sink taps to your bath taps, and is there anything more satisfying than that? It also has a 5-year manufacturer guarantee and is supplied fully assembled, although you will need to purchase a tap and waste separately.
Another product from Drench, the Emily 800mm wall mounted vanity unit and countertop basin is bound to be a standout feature in your bathroom. With prices starting from just £169.99, this vanity unit comes with a choice of four beautiful countertop basins, each adding something different to your bathroom.
Choosing a vanity unit with a countertop basin is rumoured to be one of the biggest bathroom trends of 2018 too…
This wall mounted vanity unit comes in a striking Hacienda Black textured finish and a matching worktop. The metal box drawer is soft close and the whole unit is made from FSC certified wood. All ceramic basins available are durable and easy to clean, and the unit also comes with a 5-year guarantee. You will need to purchase your tap and waste separately, although this leaves you room to be a little creative.
At a mere 400mm in width, this cloakroom vanity unit is the perfect space saver. It looks great in either a cloakroom or small bathroom, thanks to its clean and classy exterior and neat size. The ceramic basin is reversible, meaning the tap can go on either side, and the unit comes in a choice of three finishes - white gloss, oak or walnut.
Just because it’s small doesn’t mean it lacks storage. This unit has a good amount of internal room for all your bathroom bits and bobs. It comes with a lifetime manufacturer guarantee and costs just £79.95, a perfect choice for someone on a budget or who lacks a little extra space.
This natural oak vanity unit looks fantastic in any bathroom. We love pairing it with indoor plants and other natural touches to really give your bathroom that extra special something. It’s made from FSC certified wood with a durable, natural oak textured finish. The soft close door will stand the test of time and is virtually noiseless, while the Polymarble basin is easy to clean and beautifully modern.
Another wall mounted unit, the Drench Minnie unit is a great space saver and makes cleaning and aftercare easy. It comes with a 5-year guarantee and is supplied fully assembled. At just 500mm in width, it’s a simply excellent choice for cloakroom bathrooms and master bathrooms.
Something a little different - the Vellamo City Wall Hung Vanity Unit in Black Ash. Space saving at its finest, this beautiful unit is £199.99 but in our totally unbiased opinion, worth every penny. It looks wonderful in a minimalist bathroom, taking up as little space as possible yet still featuring wide, shallow drawers for all your essentials. The doors are soft close too, so will withstand wear and tear and won’t slam shut.
The polished chrome handles and lovely Black Ash finish only add to what really is a basin unit with a difference. It may not take up much space, but boy does it make a big impact.
Finally, we’ve got the Vellamo Alpine 1050mm, the only product on this list that includes not only a vanity unit, but also its own toilet and concealed cistern!
Great for those of you who lack space, this unit features a vanity unit and basin, back to wall WC unit, back to wall toilet pan and concealed dual flush cistern. Luckily for you, it comes fully assembled so DIY is minimal - although installation might require marginally more brain power than others on this list.
The four-in-one of bathroom furniture, this Vellamo Alpine unit is contemporary and classy. The finish is high gloss white, meaning it looks great in any bathroom and provides ample storage for essentials. The white ceramic basin and toilet make it an ideal choice for anyone after something contemporary and stylish, yet also seriously practical. Taps and waste are sold separately, so there is some room for customisation and putting on your own finishing touches.
It may be at the top end of the budget at £199.99, but seeing as it includes the majority of your bathroom furniture, it’s a total bargain.
