7 Black Modern Vanities from AquaLinea  E-mail

When it comes to a black bathroom vanity, there is no comparison between now and 30 years ago. Back in the late '70s to early '80s, a black bathroom vanity was relatively common and dull. At this time, people were trying to escape the “flower power” frenzy and turn to something more sober. The major problem with black vanities was that they scratched, eventually ending up with worn spots. Nowadays, with the new materials and techniques, the sinks look better than ever while holding up.

Today the designs are simply breathtaking. Manufacturers have outdone themselves with unique, stylish designs while keeping the prices affordable. A great thing about choosing black is that it can blend perfectly with any bathroom decorum. And remember, nothing speaks Elegance and Refinement more than black. 

Here are a few vanity models from AquaLinea to help you decide.
