There are multiple options available when it comes to choosing a vanity style and you're limited only by the size of your bathroom and your budget. Bathroom vanity is a place for us to put towels, hairdryers and any other stuffs we want hidden. But more than that, it definitely brings a great aesthetic value.
From simple to ornate, functional to artistic, there's literally something for everyone's taste. Read on for more information on how to design the perfect bathroom vanity.
1. The style matters
The best thing about this is you do not have to match your bathroom style to the style of your home. Your bathroom can bring a totally different vibe the moment you step in so you are free to be creative with your vanity design.
Bathroom vanities come in many different shapes, sizes and styles. For example, wood vanities which are either made of wood, painted or used wood grain laminate. Glass vanities are often wall mounted, which you will find this style in higher end restaurants or hotels as they bring a modern look and feel. If you want an industrial style, concrete vanity will definitely bring out the raw vibe.
2. The right vanity top
It's important to choose a durable surface that will hold up to the rigors of your particular situation. There are a number of materials available, including granite, quartz, marble, laminate, concrete, wood and solid surface.
Quartz is the most often recommended for bathroom countertops as it is durable, high-quality materials with luxurious designer patterns. Granite needs to be sealed every one or two years because it’s a porous stone. Softer stones like marble scratch more easily than granite and quartz and have less tolerance for moisture. Wood and laminate don’t always mix well with moisture either, but they may be more budget friendly than stone.
3. Your storage needs
Bathroom vanity cabinets often do not have as much space as they look like they might. The top drawer is usually much smaller or non-usable because of the room required for the plumbing. However, they can still offer a fair amount of storage space if the overall size is right.
Always remember that a vanity cabinet with a sink mounted on top will save a lot more space and give a bathroom a finished look at the same time. If your bathroom is small, go for a mirrored bathroom cabinet that would do two jobs at once, and open up your precious floor space.
