Vanity. Thursday , October 12th , 2017 - 14:31:20 PM
A second key to look for when trying to determine whether an author wants to work with a vanity publisher are the services that are provided to help the author with their book. A true vanity publisher will offer no services to an author and will take a work and publish it "as is", no matter how many spelling or grammatical errors the work contains. If an author just wants to see their book in print, then this will not be an issue. However, if an author wants to have a book they are proud of displaying, then having the option to take advantage of editorial and design services is a necessity in any publisher they choose. More recently, hybrid vanity publishing houses have emerged which are changing the way the public is looking at vanity publishing. Author House, IUniverse, Lulu, UPublish, Xlibris are all examples of hybrid vanity presses. Like vanity presses, they will publish any work for a fee, no matter the quality of the work with no editorial quality assurance review. However, these houses have added editorial and design services that an author can pay for, thus making them not true vanity houses, but rather vanity hybrids. If an author takes advantage of the editorial, cover design and layout services, these presses can produce excellent work.
A vanity is a starting point for your bathroom design. Deciding how you are going to use the vanity will help you decide what you want for a vanity. Some choose to go with traditional wooden cabinet style vanity. A vanity with spacious cabinets that allow you to store clean towels and other personal care items underneath your sink is a good choice for someone who needs storage space. For people who do not want to store anything under the sink a pedestal type base to hold up the sink may be a good choice. Traditional style as well as European style vanity bases are usually made of wood. A vanity with a wooden base is versatile. This type of vanity can be as simple as a painted box style cabinet with a sink dropped into the top. A wooden vanity can also be a hand crafted, hand carved, piece of furniture that adds beauty and warmth to your home. These cabinets bring their own personality to the room. Countertops for these vanities can be made to fit one or more sinks. There are many materials available for bathroom vanity countertops including Formica, ceramic tile, marble, glass and even stone.
There is a third vanity alternative that deserves a brief mention,namely, custom building a vanity base from scratch. This option provides the ultimate in flexibility (and is sometimes your only choice if you have an oddly shaped space) by allowing you to build from any kind of exotic hardwood. Think long and hard before taking this route, however, because it often takes an experienced woodworker with an ability to visualize in three-dimensions to make such a project successful. An old adage in woodworking advises that one should measure twice and cut once. When choosing a new vanity, take the time to browse the home remodeling stores to see the common offerings and search the Internet, if you are looking for something more expressive. In other words, research much, choose once. Do that, and you will wind up with a new bathroom of which to be proud.
