Clarice. Vanity. September 30th , 2017.
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.
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.
If this is indeed the case, theres no cause for alarm, and no reason to worry. A good handful of retailers on the internet offer a sort of customization service: this gives you the ability to, basically, design your own personal bathroom vanity in a unique and interesting way. These customization options are sure to pique the interest of any self-respecting Do-It-Yourself-er. But before you get to shopping, consider a few of the following pointers: first, take into account the dimensions of your bathroom. Larger bathrooms, obviously, can effectively accommodate larger vanities, and maybe even conveniently luxurious double bathroom vanities. But if you plan on installing your bathroom vanity in a smaller bathroom, consider investing in a wall-mounted vanity, a small vanity, or, for maximum space efficiency, a corner vanity. Corner bath vanities are built in a quarter-circle shape, much like a "pie slice," so that they are perfectly suited to be installed in any corner without sacrificing any of the aesthetic value or charm of the vanity itself. Corner vanities may be out of the way, but they dont sacrifice any good looks or usefulness to get there!
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.
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.
