Sabourin. Vanity. September 23rd , 2017.
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.
Withdrawn, but not overly serious people would probably do best with antique bathroom vanities. Antique bathroom vanities emanate an air of reserve and elegance that no other bathroom vanities can compete with. Nothing is as elegant as a well-preserved antique piece of furniture. Antique bathroom vanities also help to add a special touch to bathrooms that lack ornate decoration or sophisticated furnishings. Lethargic individuals prone to feeling excessively tired would probably do best with very brightly colored bathroom vanities. Colors like yellow, gold, and orange would be ideal for these people. Colorful vanities are just the thing to enhance wakefulness and help people feel more lively. A dark colored vanity would be a disaster for a naturally low energy person. It would only result in a decrease in alertness. Individuals of all personalities can find suitable matching bath vanities. With the thousands and thousands of available vanities, there really is a vanity for everyone. If you are struggling to find that best matches your personality, dont give up. You can choose a single vanity no top and customize it yourself! It is only a matter of time before you find the perfect bathroom vanity.
Whatever type of vanity top you choose from one of the big box suppliers, the tops that you can take with you are fairly limited and conventional in appearance and configuration. However, those retailers always have a wide selection of vanity tops from various manufacturers that can be custom ordered. Prices are reasonable and you can choose from a wide variety of sink shapes and placements in the top. If youre re-doing an older house or simply prefer a traditional built-in vanity, this is an excellent way to add a little pop to your bathroom while maintaining a traditional appearance. Another thing to consider, if youre planning on doing it yourself, is the relative difficulty of connecting the supply lines and the drain. When it comes to modern sink and faucet installation, it has gotten simpler for do-it-yourselfers to make the necessary connections. The problem lies in access to the connecting points. With built-in vanity bases, as well as some of the fine furniture versions and the occasional free-standing ones, youre going to wind up with your head stuck in a cabinet, trying to thread a nut in a hard to reach area.
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.
For more somber people that prefer stately bathrooms, mahogany bath vanities are ideal. Mahogany is a very dark wood that goes well with formal settings. In fact, it is one of the darkest of hardwoods available, and also appeals to many people because of its exceptional hardness. Mahogany has the capacity to add just the right touch to formal bathrooms, and goes very well with serious individuals that prefer class over cheer in furnishings. People with very energetic personalities would probably do best with stainless steel bath vanities. Stainless steel, at least when polished correctly, adds an almost space age feel to bathrooms and a special sense of energy. Stainless steel tend to imbue rooms with energy just like the energetic people they go best with. Also have the additional advantage of harmoniously blending with almost any color scheme.
