Ideally, if you have two separate vanities in the bathroom, each should offer some sort of storage for basics such toothpaste, a soap dispenser, a hand towel, etc. Usually these would go in the cabinet under the sink but this design is a bit different. We should also mention that double sink vanities come with a few disadvantages as well, the biggest one being related to space. A bathroom like this one, for example, is quite large, bigger than most standard bathrooms so not everyone can enjoy its benefits Another concern could be the reduced counter space.
