Bisaillon. Vanity. September 28th , 2017.
There are a few standard sizes with ready made vanity units, which are 600mm, 750mm, 900mm, 1200mm and 1500mm. There are vanities that are even smaller than this and these are perfect for a small powder room or guest bathrooms. The Dante vanity range, for example, features a 400mm bathroom vanity which is lovely and compact for a small bathroom area. You can, of course, have it custom made to the size that is well fitted in your bathroom. If you decide to go with this option there are a couple of things to consider: 1. Make sure that you have the vanity basin ready and on hand if the vanity top needs to be cut to size. The basin suppliers do not guarantee that the basin cut out sizes are correct down to the millimeter and it is very unusual and unwise for someone to throw away an expensive stone top just because the basin doesnt fit properly. 2. In the same way, make sure that all colours, sizes and details are correct and documented as custom made vanities can be difficult to exchange if there is an issue. Keep all relevant documents and receipts on hand so that if it is the fault of the supplier, you have proof that they need to resolve the issue.
Modern bathroom vanities are linear, but they are not minimalist. They can be made from all kinds of materials. They too can have many drawers and closed shelves to store linens, toiletries, childrens bath toys and other sundry articles, a space that contemporary bathroom vanities do not generally have. If you go for them, you should keep that aspect in mind too. One more aspect must be remembered about contemporary vanity especially those with vessel sinks with less space in countertop areas. It becomes necessary on those situations to make separate arrangement to keep toiletries. You wont get chance to use a sink or bathroom mirror properly adjusted and it is really painful to get one to secure toiletries there. It is one reason that often homemakers avoid them and get modern double bathroom vanity that is easier and comes with sufficient storage space. Besides them they also have larger countertop to keep toiletries better.
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.
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.
Todays generation may admire Victorian or Gothic designs in cinemas or on the pages of fashion magazines, but for their own home, they always choose the contemporary style. The shape of the bathroom too is important in choosing a vanity. The bathroom may be comparatively small, but if there is an odd corner, which can accommodate fairly big vanity, you should make use of it. However, you can do that only if the plumbing line can be extended to that corner. However, few modern bathrooms are oddly shaped or have odd corners. Most of them are a clean square or a rectangle. In such scenario, such consideration does not apply. Choose the material used in manufacturing the vanities with care. Wood is a traditional material, but today glass bathroom vanities are becoming very popular. Although glass looks delicate, thanks to the technological up gradations, they are no longer that fragile.
