Was King Solomon in a bathroom remodeling mode when he said "Vanity of vanities, all is vanity,"? We'll never know. But no matter. Modern day vanities are cabinets that hold built-in lavatories (sinks) and faucets, usually sold separately. In Anglophone countries, they are called vanitory cabinets. Who knows why. Your typical vanity is a smaller version of a kitchen cabinet. You might say they are kitchen cousins. (Sorry.). You can get a better idea of the different vanity styles on cabinet manufacturers' websites.
