Reader Abby asked Decorating Den:

“I am redoing my bathroom. Is it essential for bathroom vanities to match?”

Harrisburg Interior Decorator Barbara Tabak had some advice for Abby:

My general advice would be to buck inclination to be the “matchy, matchy” with your bathroom vanities. Unmatched vanities can add whimsy and an unexpected sophistication to the room.

However, if the space is small or if the vanities are too different from each other, your look may appear muddled rather than sophisticated. So be sure there is some unifying characteristic shared between the two vanities.
