One of the most outstanding features of any contemporary bathroom is the vanities seen inside the space. They create a valuable focal point for this space and help to provide organized storage amenities for the small bits and pieces that need to be close at hand but would otherwise make the bathroom untidy.
Unlike in times past when these would basically be storage units borrowed from the bedroom or kitchen, modern bathroom vanities make the ultimate difference between a mundane old wet-room space and one that is stylish and elegant.
There are innumerable options in the market and making the right choice can be a daunting and exacting task. These are some of the latest trends to help you make the finest pick:
Nothing is more frustrating than trying to design a themed bathroom using unrelated pieces bought individually. That informs the current trend of purchasing complete coordinated vanity sets that come with a cabinet, sink and faucets, mirrors and light fixtures. This helps a home-owner achieve a unified finish that makes for a tranquil room. A less obvious advantage of buying these items as a set is that it is usually a lot cheaper than buying individual items separately.
Taking into consideration that the bathroom environment is constantly wet and humid, the choice of material particularly for the vanity counter-top should not only be based on aesthetics. It should also have quality and versatility in mind.
Currently, many home owners are choosing wood veneers, man-made stone, thermo-foil or acrylic resin. If your choice is wood, ensure it is correctly sealed and lacquered to prevent water damage. Additionally, do not let water sit on it for an extended period as it will damage the finish. Stone finishes are the most durable, come in a beautiful array of designs and are easy to maintain but their cost is comparatively higher. Thermo-foil can be used to simulate any desired finish at a fraction of the cost and is resistant to water.
Freestanding bathroom vanities
These have once again risen to popularity because of their timeless vintage look. They are particularly helpful for small bathrooms as they create an illusion of space owing to the room underneath the structure. They are much easier to install and move around when redesigning or remodeling a bathroom.
Floating vanity designs
The floating vanity is one of the most versatile options when it comes to bathroom vanities. There is simply no end to the variety of designs available. It allows one to use a fully customized scheme choosing where to place various compartments, how many compartments to have, how high or low to have the counter top, everything to your taste and preference. This design frees up a lot of space that can be used for various odds and ends in the bathroom like wicker baskets or toilet roll holders.
Vessel sinks are all the rage these days and it is not difficult to see why. They come in elegant shapes and are the height of panache giving a unique floating impression. They are modeled after their oldest ancestors, the wash basins and have the distinct advantage of being easily installed and/or removed, for home-owners who remodel often.
Vessel sink vanities are a timeless favorite for homeowners who want to achieve a matchless classic look and they allow for more counter space than their counterparts. They require a wall-mount faucet and a lower counter height than ordinary vanities.
Given the amount of time we spend in the bathroom, it only makes sense to pick out the best bathroom vanities that will make our stay in this space as relaxing as possible. Investing in high quality vanity cabinets will ensure that home owners make an economically sound choice and cut down on future remodeling expenses.
