Beautiful Bathroom Vanity Design Ideas

Massive or understated, modern or traditional, decorative or plain practical: the bathroom vanity can be anything you want it to be. It's the place where you prim and pamper yourself, or just comb your hair quickly; it's the place where we get a few minutes to be with ourselves each day, staring at our reflection in the mirror.

Whatever you need out of your vanity space, one of these design ideas ought to inspire you.

1. Rustic Style


Go back to basics with a rustic bathroom vanity. Rough wood, filled with natural knots and colors, recalls the naked wood beams on the ceiling and enhances ​woodland-inspired decor.

2. Modern Floating Vanity

A weightless white modern vanity in decor represents everything you need in modern, minimalist decor: tons of white, a floating style for minimal floor footprint, and lacquered shine for some light-reflecting texture.

3. Simple and Clean

The simple lines and colors, make a great choice for people with simple tastes. Lots of storage, plenty of counter space on both sides of the sink, and gorgeous light fixtures work together to make your space practical and beautiful.
About This Term: Primary Bathroom
Many real estate associations, including the National Association of Home Builders, have classified the term "Master Bedroom" (or "Master Bathroom") as discriminatory. "Primary Bedroom" is the name now widely used among the real estate community and better reflects the purpose of the room.

4. Asymmetrical Vanity

The asymmetrical effect attracts attention and opens up the room to feature the open plumbing and the weightlessness of it all. It's unexpected—and that's what makes it special. 

5. Glamorous Mirrored Vanity

You'll feel like a glamorous Hollywood star as you prepare for a night out at a gorgeous mirrored vanity table. Add a  beautiful French etched mirror and  chandelier-inspired light fixture—everything you need to bring out the glam girl in you.


6. Gold and Blue

The golden brass hardware on this vanity contrasts beautifully with the dark blue paint—in this bathroom . This decor has a royal, regal feel that makes you feel like the ruler of your home—and your day.


7. Small Modern Bathroom Vanities

 Instead of one large piece of furniture,  go with two smaller spaces, one for each person, so that they don't step on each others' toes in the morning. Clever.

8. Floating Marble

 The floating style gives a vanity interesting weightlessness, given the material; the minimal surroundings really bring out the quality of the stone. And a natural wood shelf right under the vanity serves to hold all you need for your morning and evening beauty routines.


9. DIY Farmhouse Vanity

You can fit the interior with shelves and drawers. It's great for small spaces too: its minimal profile fits very well in a bathroom corner.

10. Recycled Antique Bureau 

Reuse, recycle, reclaim! An antique bureau-turned-vanity will show you that some things deserve a second chance. Multiple drawers provide lots of storage, and an arched front design makes for unusual bathroom vanity.

11. Couples Vanities

If you have space to spare in your primary bathroom, you might want to consider this kind of setup. Two sinks are separated by a dressing space, which includes an extra mirror, a slim drawer, and a tufted stool. The overall look is traditional and classic, which makes it perfect for a gender-neutral space.

12. Simple Open Vanity

You don't always need lots of drawers or space to make a bathroom vanity effective. A simple shelf side table works well enough for her small bathroom. Add a basin sink, which fits on any flat space, and a wall-mounted faucet for extra space savings. 

13. Midcentury Modern

Take yourself back to the 60s with a mid-century modern design. add splashes of color on the drawers and top cabinet door and sleek, hardware-less build suits the shallow vessel sink.

14. Nook Vanity

Have an extra nook space in your bathroom? Why not transform it with a dressing table? Bonus: you have a dedicated space for your beauty supplies, which won't clutter up the counter space around the sink.

15. Rough Wood

Sometimes the beauty of nature requires no refinement. Add a double-shelf rough wood counter with a vessel sink and modern faucet fixtures. The balance of polished and unpolished, wood and stone, will make any bathroom a striking space.


16. Eclectic Powder Room

There is something wonderfully indescribable about this bathroom. The spiky mirror frame, the rough, unpolished-edged countertop, the rustic wood, and distressed-looking wall finish all seem rather strange on their own, but together they make for something mysteriously appealing. This Southwestern powder room by Platinum Companies features a rustic vanity with a low-profile vessel sink to fulfill all your desires of a dark and stormy bathroom.

Trusted Team Brags About Backyard Living Center, Your Trusted Saskatoon Hot Tub Store!

The Trusted Saskatoon team is thrilled to brag about our newest Trusted Saskatoon outdoor living and recreation partner, Backyard Living Center, your Trusted Saskatoon Hot Tub Store!


Sheryl and Matthew Harras are the proud owners of Backyard Living Center, a local, family-owned and operated Saskatoon hot tub store. They are passionate about helping citizens of Saskatoon and the surrounding area find the best hot tub, or outdoor furniture to meet their needs without the high-pressure sales tactics. They really do care and go the extra mile to find out what will work best for you and your family, whether it’s a new hot tub, supplies or chemicals, or just honest advice and tips. They also have amazing customer service, as many of their customers have raved about their personable attitude and dependability. When dealing with Backyard Living Center, you’re not dealing with just any staff members… you’re personally dealing with the owners… and they are owners who care!


Sheryl suffered from painful back issues after several unfortunate vehicle accidents. After seeking relief in many places, much to her surprise, she found that hot tub hydrotherapy really helped! She was never interested in hot tubs, but when one came with a new house the family purchased she decided to give it a try, and here she is years later a hot tub convert who has excellent advice to share!   


This couple is striving to be the best in the hot tub industry. So after gaining years of knowledge and expertise with a few other companies, and noting both the good and bad of the industry, they feel confident that they can provide unparalleled service and professionalism along with friendly and honest advice, to those looking to purchase a hot tub. Not only do they have a great selection of Canadian-made hot tubs and spas, but they can also look after your service and repair needs, hot tub and pool water care, and even hot tub and pool financing. In addition, they are introducing luxury outdoor furniture this coming spring!! 


“Remember, they don’t just sell hot tubs and spas, they are here to help you with Emotional Wellness, Physical Wellness and Relational Wellness. Did you know that hot tubs are hydrotherapy for your entire body, and can help with headaches, sports injuries, back pain, knee pain, tight muscles and sciatica?"


We are so fortunate that Sheryl, Matthew, and their daughter Sara moved to Saskatoon to establish and grow their business, and we are thrilled about their decision to join our Trusted Saskatoon community. They saw Saskatoon as the perfect place, with the right demographics, the right economy, and the right people to create their dream business. But no matter where you live in Saskatchewan, the team at Backyard Living Center will try their best to assist you.


Community Support Is Important


Making a difference in our community in various charitable ways is a real heartfelt mission of Backyard Living Center. Above is a recent photo of owners Matthew and Sheryl, and below is a photo of a local hero Owen and his Mom. Thanks to their customers for shopping local, the company was able to give back to this young local hero by donating funds so that Owen could get a fin for his amputation and enjoy some swimming lessons.



As part of our Unique Trusted verification process, where we speak to real customers and suppliers, we continually heard the same positive comments about Sheryl and Matthew and the feedback was nothing short of excellent. 


“I heard about Sheryl and Matthew from someone else, and when she had mentioned they were going to open up their own store I waited to deal with them, and I’m so happy I did! They have gone above and beyond my expectations, from purchasing, to installation to solving my water and ph problems, I have not experienced any problems whatsoever. I would definitely rate them a 10/10 and have already referred them to friends and family.” - Ryan McIntyre, Rural SK


“I first met Sheryl Harras when she was employed as the Sales manager for a very successful and long established Pool and Spa company based in BC. I myself have been associated with the Pool and Spa industry for 30 years, so I was surprised that after just one meeting I was immediately impressed with her level of professionalism and knowledge. For the next 2 years we developed a mutually beneficial relationship. Her enthusiasm and salesmanship ensured that her store soon became one of my largest customers and still is to this day. More recently, when Sheryl advised me that she was planning to move to Saskatoon and start her own Hot Tub retail store, I was fully committed to help in any way possible. I know with her track record, it will only be a matter of time before Backyard Living Center becomes one of the most successful Hot Tub stores, not just within Saskatoon but within all of Western Canada. H2O Spas is proud to partner with Sheryl and Matt Harras and they can be assured of our support as they continue to grow their business.” 
Sincerely, Mark Owen, H2O Spas

Trusted Saskatoon IT Pro's at Burnt Orange Explain Antivirus Mechanisms and Attacks

Gareth McKee and his Trusted Saskatoon IT team at Burnt Orange Solutions promise to have a one-hour response time for all your IT support needs. Honesty and respect are important to them. They pride themselves on ensuring their clients understand IT concerns by providing a straightforward and reliable solution with exceptional service. 

Burnt Orange Solutions are your Trusted Saskatoon IT Experts.  In their latest Saskatoon IT expert tip, Gareth shares why antivirus is useless against modern attacks. Antivirus software identifies malware and detects threats. However, now that attacks have evolved, today’s threats are able to get around Antivirus mechanisms.

WHY ANTIVIRUS IS USELESS AGAINST MODERN ATTACKS

Antivirus Software (AV): Signature-Based Approach

Antivirus software identifies malware based on signatures. These signatures are like fingerprints, and each malware has a unique pattern. Antivirus software contains the memory of each signature that it uses to identify malicious threats. Each time antivirus software recognizes new malware, antivirus companies add the signature to their blacklist. These blacklists contain the signatures that are denied access to your system. Thus, Antivirus protects your system by blocking these specific signatures from attacking.

Why Antivirus Software is Not Sufficient

This signature-based approach worked for detecting older malware that had already been identified and labelled. In the past, provided the malware was known, and your antivirus company’s signatures were up to date, you were protected. Unfortunately, threats have evolved and malware is not the only concern. Specifically, today’s threats include targeted attacks using unknown malware variants, file-less malware attacks, and exploits that leverage unknown software vulnerabilities. As a result, these persistent threats and ransomware attacks can all bypass antivirus detection. 

Another concern is that malware development has shifted. Attackers now test their malware against antivirus programs to ensure it can bypass them. In addition, attackers invent new malware at a faster rate. Thus, antivirus companies are unable to keep up with blacklisting all the signatures. Also, new types of malware can now go undetected by signature. New malware is hard to detect because it is polymorphic, meaning it changes as it spreads. Overall, as threats grow, Antivirus is no longer sufficient. 

Why Keep Using Antivirus If It Is Useless Against Modern Attacks?

The bottom line is antivirus software is necessary for legal and compliance purposes. For example, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) requires up-to-date antivirus software for organizations that store, process, or send credit card information. Not to mention, a lack of antivirus protection makes companies appear irresponsible. This jeopardizes a company’s ability to collect insurance if a breach or lawsuit should occur. 

Though antivirus cannot detect modern threats, it does provide a certain degree of protection. As long as your current antivirus program can identify and block even half of the malware signatures, it is worth using. However, it must not be the only line of defence. 

Overall, as threats grow more advanced, an antivirus alone is not enough to protect your company. A more comprehensive IT strategy is a necessity. Contact the IT experts at Burnt Orange IT Solutions. We can help your business mitigate risk, and be prepared for any IT-related emergency. 

We hope this article gave you some insight. If you want to ensure your business’s IT security, contact the Trusted Saskatoon IT professionals at Burnt Orange Solutions and we can take IT worries off your plate.


Trusted Saskatoon Furnace Experts at JOB Heating and Air Conditioning Explain Why Your Furnace is Blowing Cold Air

Their team takes pride in service knowledge of modern equipment and training. They are recognized by peers and offer sales, service, training & installations for residential, and commercial Heating, Cooling, and Plumbing systems in Saskatoon and the surrounding area. JOB Heating & Air are Trusted Saskatoon Furnace and Air Conditioning Experts. In their latest article, they discover reasons why your furnace is blowing cold air.

Is Your Furnace Blowing Cold Air?

This may be a sign that your furnace requires attention. Read on to discover reasons why your furnace is blowing cold air.

Your Furnace Has Not Warmed Up


Whenever it is the beginning of a heating cycle, you will get a blast of cold air when you turn on your furnace. Much like when you first turn on a faucet, cold water is going to flow out at first rather than hot. As your furnace warms up, it must first push out the cold air before warm air will blow out of your vents. If your furnace blows cold air briefly, this is likely the explanation. However, if warm air does not follow the cold air after a few minutes, it is time to call in an expert. 

The Thermostat Setting Is Incorrect  

Ensure the thermostat is set to “AUTO” instead of “ON”. When the thermostat is set to “ON”, the fan will continuously run even when the furnace is not in a heating cycle. This means that the fan will blow cold air throughout your home, instead of warm. The thermostat should always be on “AUTO” to ensure that the fan will only blow during a heating cycle. 

The Flame Sensor Is Dirty

The flame sensor detects whether or not your furnace’s gas burners are lit. A dirty flame sensor will keep the gas burner from staying lit, and cause the burners to shut off. This results in cold air blowing from the vents, as the furnace does not have a heat source. Unless you are familiar with furnaces, a dirty flame sensor should always be cleaned by a professional to restore heat. 

Your Furnace's Pilot Light Is Out

Especially if your furnace is older, cold air is a sign that the pilot light is out. If you are comfortable doing so, follow your furnace’s instructions on how to relight it. If the flame goes out again after a few minutes, contact a professional as technical work is likely necessary. 

Your Furnace's Air Filter Is Clogged

When the air filter is clogged, airflow is restricted. Restricted airflow can cause your furnace to overheat. When your furnace overheats, this shuts down the burner resulting in cold air. Always replace a dirty air filter to ensure your furnace is functioning properly. 

These are a few possible reasons why your furnace is blowing cold air. Be sure to schedule your routine furnace maintenance to ensure your furnace is safe to operate this winter. If you need any assistance with your furnace or home heating equipment, do not hesitate to contact our team at JOB Heating & Air Conditioning.

David Dram has been involved in the furnace and duct cleaning industry since 2014 and he is passionate about what he does, especially the benefits he brings to the health and wellness of his customers. After gaining knowledge and expertise with a few other companies and learning both the good and bad of the industry, he recognized it was time to go out on his own. He wanted to do things differently, with his own vision and purpose, and a goal to provide unparalleled service and professionalism. 


We all know there’s always "a guy or gal that can do it cheaper," but we all know when you compromise on price, you generally compromise on quality. So David wanted to change that perception and offer honest and friendly service, great quality work, all at a fair price for Saskatoon consumers.



Breathe Better is truly a family-owned and operated business, as David’s wife Becca is the other co-founder, and she works extremely hard behind the scenes looking after the paperwork, accounting, invoicing, reviews, and social media. On top of running a growing and successful business, they have four wonderful children, ages 8, 6, 3, and 6 months, so things are extremely busy around the Dram household! 


David is also the Commanding Officer of the #300 Fisher Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron, located in Biggar, and has been involved as a CAF officer for 10 years, taking command last October. Although David was born in Flin Flon, Saskatoon has been his home since childhood and he strives every day to make a difference with indoor air quality and personal health for residents and businesses of Saskatoon and the surrounding area.


We are so fortunate to have David and Becca raising their family and growing their business in Saskatoon, and we are happy about their decision to join our Trusted Saskatoon community. Now our team will do what WE are most passionate about… Promoting and spreading the word about this locally owned family business and sharing the news about the honesty, integrity, and long-term approach to business they are committed to! You can definitely trust them for your residential or commercial projects, from furnace, duct, and vent cleaning, they clean old homes, businesses and new builds, they are the professionals to call in an emergency or just because it’s time to thoroughly clean your home.

I found David through Facebook as I always love to support the smaller, local guy. I’ve had ducts cleaned before and you never meet the owner and are always up-charged. David was super transparent with price and service and very professional. I would definitely have Breathe Better Indoor Air Quality Specialists back again and will suggest him to family and friends looking for someone to clean their furnace, ducts and vents!” - Mitch Kurylyk, Saskatoon
