Vanity. Thursday , October 12th , 2017 - 14:07:55 PM
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 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.
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.
