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 important interior design aspect of your vanity is the colour. White is a popular color for a large majority of vanities nowadays but there are other options that you could consider as a focal point to your bathroom. The Laminex range of colours is expansive and is definitely worth checking out if you are getting a vanity custom made for your bathroom. The Dante range of bathroom vanities, which is ready made, is also available in a variety of laminex colours. There are two main materials that bathroom vanity tops come in and they are polymarble and china, whose stone is also a popular option. In terms of the difference between polymarble and china tops it is common perception that china is better, although this is not always the case. Polymarble is a man made composite mixture of polyurethane resins and china is a vitreous porcelain product that is a natural. They are both durable materials so the choice depends on the buyer/ user. Polymarble is generally cheaper but it can be scratched easily and doesnt look as fresh compared to china.
Much of the problem with access to these built-ins comes from their name. You cannot move the base or countertop to get to the water lines. Depending on the exact set-up of your bathroom lines, it may not be that much of a problem, but other times a complete re-rerouting of the water supply line will be necessary in order to avoid a structural element of the cabinet. In a worst-case scenario, you could end up adding a number of very colorful epithets to your vocabula ry as you pull the entire unit out for a mid-project supply line revision. As they say in the army, however, proper planning prevents poor performance. Free-standing vanity bases allow you to be a little more adventurous in design. Unlike built-in vanity bases, they typically come complete, with the vanity top. Because of this, you have a chance to evaluate the whole look before making a commitment to a particular style. Some free-standing bases look like fine furniture and use tops similar to the built-ins, made of granite or glass. The holes for the vessel and faucet are pre-drilled and ready for installation.
