Lamontagne. Vanity. September 28th , 2017.
Whatever type of vanity top you choose from one of the big box suppliers, the tops that you can take with you are fairly limited and conventional in appearance and configuration. However, those retailers always have a wide selection of vanity tops from various manufacturers that can be custom ordered. Prices are reasonable and you can choose from a wide variety of sink shapes and placements in the top. If youre re-doing an older house or simply prefer a traditional built-in vanity, this is an excellent way to add a little pop to your bathroom while maintaining a traditional appearance. Another thing to consider, if youre planning on doing it yourself, is the relative difficulty of connecting the supply lines and the drain. When it comes to modern sink and faucet installation, it has gotten simpler for do-it-yourselfers to make the necessary connections. The problem lies in access to the connecting points. With built-in vanity bases, as well as some of the fine furniture versions and the occasional free-standing ones, youre going to wind up with your head stuck in a cabinet, trying to thread a nut in a hard to reach area.
A bathroom vanity is a piece of furniture with a number of purposes. Usually you would expect your vanity to house your sink, and all the plumbing that goes with it. Hopefully with all the plumbing nicely housed out of view and out of the way. Your vanity is also a cabinet, so its the place where all those little things like the soap and the toothpaste are housed, as well as all those other things that really ought to be out of view as well. Make sure you choose a vanity of the right height. Most bathroom vanities are built at a standard height of 30 inches. Fine if youre the standard height, but if youre particularly short then you may find that the height of the vanity is too high for you, and if youre tall you may well have to stoop to clean your teeth. I suggest you spend some time in your local store looking at vanity units to decide what height is right for you.
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 are many ways to mount a bathroom vanity but some are more modern than others. Wall mounting is a newer trend that is dramatically changing how people purchase bathroom vanities. Even a regular or basic vanity can be made to look more modern by wall mounting it and creating the illusion that the vanity is floating in midair. Mounting a vanity with or without storage cabinetry is a great way to add style, elegance, and an artistic touch to any bathroom design plan. Adding fixtures like vessel sinks and unique faucets is yet another way to set a regular vanity apart from other more basic units. Vessel sinks can come in many shapes, sizes, colors, and materials. Vessel sinks are another great opportunity to add a unique design element to a bathroom by choosing unique material, color, and shape. Faucets can also add an intriguing look to any bathroom vanity. Waterfall faucets are usually installed to accompany vessel sinks. When turned on, the water cascades down into the bowl like a waterfall over a swimming hole.
If your bathroom vanity is too small, there are other sizes in vanities for your bathroom. When you have a small vanity, it is not as useful as one that if a larger size such as a 48 inch bath vanity. This size vanity is available in different styles. Some 48 inch bath vanities have double sinks which is one of the biggest reasons for changing from a small vanity to a larger one. The extra sink allows two people to use the sinks together at the same time so it can be a time saver when used in this way. When deciding to change your present bath vanity to a 48 inch bathroom vanity you will be getting a lot more counter space for the bath accessories that you need. You can have a place for shampoo, lotion, candles, toothbrush holder, soap dish, shaving cream and more. Some people like to decorate a 48 inch bathroom vanity with candle holders, small lamp, flower vase and other items to make the countertop more interesting and attractive. Changing your bathroom vanity to a 48 inch bath vanity may be just what you need to change the appearance of your entire bathroom. It will fill in more area in your bathroom making a statement in this space.
