Vanity. Thursday , October 12th , 2017 - 14:33:08 PM
A modern bathroom vanity is basically any vanity that is not an antique. Typically though, if a vanity is unique in shape, sleek in design, and stylishly different from any other vanity you have ever seen then it probably falls into the category of modern. Modern design can however, include many different types of materials similar to standard vanities like wood, glass, metal, and even porcelain. The most notable difference between any old vanity and a modern bathroom vanity has to be its unique design, how the vanity is mounted, and the type of fixtures it contains. The design of a vanity can encompass many things including the shape, style, color, and finish. For instance, if a vanity has an odd shape or a curved design then it clearly is more modern than a basic square or boxy shape. A vanity with glass shelves versus one with wooden cabinetry is also considered more modern because cabinetry and storage is something that most people associate with a vanity area. The color and finish of the material used in the making of the vanity can also set it apart from what most people consider basic or standard. For example, a glossy black finish is more modern than a regular wood stain. When each and every one of these design elements is taken into consideration, finding a modern vanity becomes a little bit easier.
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.
Much of the problem with access to these built-ins comes from their name. You cannot move the base or countertop to get to the water lines. Depending on the exact set-up of your bathroom lines, it may not be that much of a problem, but other times a complete re-rerouting of the water supply line will be necessary in order to avoid a structural element of the cabinet. In a worst-case scenario, you could end up adding a number of very colorful epithets to your vocabula ry as you pull the entire unit out for a mid-project supply line revision. As they say in the army, however, proper planning prevents poor performance. Free-standing vanity bases allow you to be a little more adventurous in design. Unlike built-in vanity bases, they typically come complete, with the vanity top. Because of this, you have a chance to evaluate the whole look before making a commitment to a particular style. Some free-standing bases look like fine furniture and use tops similar to the built-ins, made of granite or glass. The holes for the vessel and faucet are pre-drilled and ready for installation.
