Vanity units are essential fixtures in any bathroom. Vanities can boost your bathroom’s aesthetic while incorporating extra storage space. Both traditional and modern vanity styles are available to complement with the layout of your home. With unlimited design possibilities and colour combinations, you won’t have an issue finding the perfect vanity for your bathroom. Refine your search for the best bathroom vanity unit with these 5 tips!
Consider your storage needs and size requirements.
Your vanity should be just as practical as it is beautiful. Get rid of any unnecessary bathroom clutter then take some measurements of the space to get a better understanding of what size vanity will fit. Consider a wider double sink basin vanity if your bathroom is used by multiple people. Get in touch with VK Bathrooms for measurement assistance and vanity sizing advice!
Match your colour scheme.
Choosing a suitable vanity colour can be tricky if your bathroom already has colourful tiles and patterns. Look for a colour that will coordinate with the details of your bathroom. Still, there are no rules when it comes to colour in your bathroom, so find something that you like. White gloss and marble finishes are an easy way to make your bathroom feel clean and luxurious.
Think about positioning.
Where will your vanity be installed so that it can be used comfortably? Make sure that any drawers or doors can open fully without bumping into walls or blocking the entrance to the shower. If you are replacing an existing sink fixture, your vanity will probably be installed in the same place. A significant change in the placement of sinks will require pipework rerouting, so be mindful of your plumbing needs as well.
Choose a suitable material.
Your vanity material should be both practical and beautiful. Bathrooms are prone to excess moisture, so look for a material that won’t promote mould and mildew growth. However, even stone surfaces are porous, so be sure to wipe up any spills and clean your surfaces regularly. Wood effect finishes work well with traditional style bathroom spaces, while natural stone, granite, and marble add an elegant note to the room.
Decide between a floor-standing or mounted fixture.
Wall mounted vanities utilise the bathroom space most effectively. If you have a small area to work with, a mounted vanity will take up as little space as possible, fit snugly against the wall. Again, if you do not already have a wall mounted fixture, a wall mounting will likely require pipework rerouting. This may be an expensive endeavor, but worthwhile to maximise your space. Floor-standing units are easier to install and usually easier on your wallet. Both options will serve as a practical upgrade to your bathroom space!
