To create a rustic impression, you can choose a matte red color like the one shown in the picture of a custom bathroom vanity above. As you can see, the wood material of this furniture gains a red tone that can still make the piece looks natural and suitable for the rustic interior style.

Another thing that we love from this item is the use of black granite countertop that does not have a glossy surface. It makes the top compatible with the matte red vanity.

The red and black theme of this furniture piece gets even better because the hardware is also in black. Besides, if you look closely, you will also find that the fixture of the sink, including the faucets and soap holders, are also in black.

Its black color is an excellent match for the red accent wall.

Besides, the floating design is also interesting. It makes the bathroom feel more open and spacious. That is why this kind of idea is perfect to use when you have a small bathroom.
