Sabourin. Vanity. October 23rd , 2017.
A frosted glass one piece vanity gives an exotic look to your bathroom. Accented with the right hardware this type of vanity looks more like art than the functional bathroom fixture it is. A one piece porcelain vanity is often seen in small bathrooms. The corner sink attached to the wall is a popular choice for really small bathrooms. Stone adds natural beauty to the bathroom. A vanity made of natural stone is not only beautiful, it is durable too. A stone pedestal base and stone sink accents the bathroom while adding a little personality, as well as functionality. Stone counter tops are also available in many different sizes and shapes. The countertop can be built with sink and counter in one piece. These are heavy and can be used on strong bases.
Planning on remodeling your bathroom? Youll find out very quickly that one of your major decisions involves the selection of a new vanity base and vanity top. Lets see what the choices are and which one is right for you. There are two basic types of vanities, built-in and freestanding. Built-in is exactly what the name implies, a vanity base and a solid countertop that installs against the wall and is designed to look like part of the structure. For those who lean toward modern décor, or are remodeling the bathroom in a contemporary home, loft, high-rise condominium, or upscale townhouse, a free-standing vanity will definitely appeal to your creativity due to the greater range of more unique designs that are available. These vanities also enhance the visual space of smaller bathrooms and powder rooms found in todays new construction.
Another vanity that combines beauty and functionality is the basic look of a shelf with a sink resembling a bowl sitting on top of it. The simplicity of this type of vanity makes your bathroom look more exotic. The shelf can be wooden, glass, or even stone and the sink can be a bowl that is made of frosted glass, stone, or porcelain. This type of vanity makes your bathroom look more spacious because the area below the sink is open instead of being filled with a cabinet. For a calming effect terraced sink/bowls with water cascading from one to another are beautiful. These can be made out of colored glass (in a variety of colors) or other materials including marble.
You can find everything from chrome pedestals that stand on the floor to cantilevered wall mounts that support the basin in mid-air. Prefer fine cabinetry? Common wood choices range from wenge (usually painted ultra dark brown, almost black) to oak. Exotic hardwoods, such as sapele or zelkova become available from time to time. These rich grained woods are highly prized by custom furniture makers. Its even possible to find a free-standing vanity that looks and functions exactly like an antique chest of drawers. Freestanding vanities eliminate the installation problems mentioned above because the open designs are easily accessible. The drain hardware is also designed to stay out in the open. P-trap drains, in particular, are very modern in design so you dont mind them being in plain view.
Take every aspect of your bathroom into consideration before you choose a vanity. The size, the shape, the existing décor (if any), lights and even the position of the window are all very important. You cannot just ignore one and concentrate on another. Also, remember that you will have to put up the vanity where the plumbing line already exists; otherwise, you will have to redo it from scratch. Therefore, where you put up your new vanity is also very important. Start your search for the perfect vanity only when you have considered all these. You will find that there are three styles of vanities - antique, transitional and contemporary. While the first two types of vanities are bulkier and more ornate, a contemporary bathroom vanity is more simplistic in design. It blends well with todays style of bathroom décor and available bathroom fixtures. It also goes well with the preference of the modern generation.
