Romaine. Vanity. October 12th , 2017.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Deciding on a built-in vanity is a two-stage process. First, you choose the vanity base. Walk into any home remodeling center and you will find rows of stock vanity bases bolted to the wall, ready to take home. There are variations in style, including length, height, number and placement of doors and drawers, but thats about it. If you have an older, traditional home, this style is most likely your best choice. Now that you have your vanity base selected, theres still something missing...the vanity top. Most of the time, the vanity top will be made from cultured marble, ceramic, or granite, and usually the sink (or basin or vessel, depending on the manufacturers description) will be an integral part of the top, forming a one-piece unit that will not leak. In some cases, a vanity top will have a cut-out (or cut-outs in the case of a double vanity) to allow the basin (or basins) to drop in.
