Lamontagne. Vanity. September 29th , 2017.
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.
Which brings me to the next consideration: manner and extent of use. How many people share your bathroom? How many people argue over sink space? If more than one individual will use the vanity, it may be worth your while to look into an investment in double bathroom vanities. These vanities have two sinks, two mirrors, and two storage cabinets, so people can perform their hygienic tasks simultaneously, without the fuss. Finally, consider the price. Bathroom vanities cover a significant price range, from particularly expensive to tremendously affordable. Take note, though: the most expensive product, when it comes to vanities, is not always the "best" product. It may be in your best interests to avoid the cheapest models, however. So do some research, shop around a little, and read user reviews to see whether or not a certain manufacturer delivers a quality product. Once the quality is established, you should feel free to peruse each item without particular concern for price; simply choose the vanity product that is best suited to your tastes and needs! If youre really strapped for cash, though, and still want a vanity, then consider looking into discount stores (which often carry warehouse-priced items, or items that more expensive stores simply couldnt sell or carry), internet auction sites, and online "classifieds" like Craigslist.com.
Your choices for vanity bathroom vanity cabinet styles are numerous because you can choose a traditional vanity style, typically in wood, like Queen Anne, French Provincial, Oriental or similar. These are ornate with decorative carvings. Contemporary and modern bathroom vanities come in an array of colors and different materials they are popular and allow creativity and uniqueness. Less ornate but no less beautiful these offer clean straight lines for expressing your style. One modern vanity style, the vessel or vessel sink bathroom vanity is really popular. This style has the sink, resembling a bowl on top of the countertop surface. Your bathroom vanity counter tops choice will be one that also defines your style. Ceramic tile is a traditional favorite in the bathroom but unlike in the past you have a wealth of other choices available. Another old favorite is laminate which offers a kaleidoscope of colors. Man made or solid surface materials are very durable this synthetic made of acrylic or polyester is easily maintained. It comes in varied colors and textures. A natural stone such as granite, marble, and slate can add durable elegance but will probably be the most expensive choice for your bathroom counter top.
A second key to look for when trying to determine whether an author wants to work with a vanity publisher are the services that are provided to help the author with their book. A true vanity publisher will offer no services to an author and will take a work and publish it "as is", no matter how many spelling or grammatical errors the work contains. If an author just wants to see their book in print, then this will not be an issue. However, if an author wants to have a book they are proud of displaying, then having the option to take advantage of editorial and design services is a necessity in any publisher they choose. More recently, hybrid vanity publishing houses have emerged which are changing the way the public is looking at vanity publishing. Author House, IUniverse, Lulu, UPublish, Xlibris are all examples of hybrid vanity presses. Like vanity presses, they will publish any work for a fee, no matter the quality of the work with no editorial quality assurance review. However, these houses have added editorial and design services that an author can pay for, thus making them not true vanity houses, but rather vanity hybrids. If an author takes advantage of the editorial, cover design and layout services, these presses can produce excellent work.
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.
