Planning on remodeling your bathroom? Youll find out very quickly that one of your major decisions involves the selection of a new vanity base and vanity top. Lets see what the choices are and which one is right for you. There are two basic types of vanities, built-in and freestanding. Built-in is exactly what the name implies, a vanity base and a solid countertop that installs against the wall and is designed to look like part of the structure. For those who lean toward modern décor, or are remodeling the bathroom in a contemporary home, loft, high-rise condominium, or upscale townhouse, a free-standing vanity will definitely appeal to your creativity due to the greater range of more unique designs that are available. These vanities also enhance the visual space of smaller bathrooms and powder rooms found in todays new construction.
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.
One factor to take into account is that polymarble is easier to repair than china so if you scratch your polymarble top this can be buffed over but a chipped china basin is more difficult to repair. Another factor to consider before purchasing your vanity is the location of the pipes. If your pipework is running through the floor this may prevent you from having a wall hung vanity if you dont want the pipes to be visible. Likewise if you have pipes running through the wall be aware that the pipes bent into an s shape to fit from the plug hole to the wall and this takes up a lot of space which can affect your storage. Vanities are one of the most exciting purchases in a bathroom renovation as they can have a huge impact on the design of the room. Seriously consider these few helpful tips and you can purchase your new bathroom vanity with confidence.
