Camilla. Bathroom Vanity. February 15th , 2018.
Again, this is a good time to add your personal style, you can really express yourself with bathroom vanity cabinet hardware. You can choose vanity cabinet hardware colors that complement a theme in your home or go with something unique to the bathroom. Traditionally gold has been a favorite but pewter or silver lend a more modern contemporary look of coolness.
Bathroom Vanity Sink Style. One specific feature of a bathroom vanity is the sink. Most vanities have a sink built into the top portion. Each vanity incorporates a sink differently. Some are submerged/sunk into the top of the vanity while others are designed for vessel sinks (sinks that rest on the top surface). Vessel sinks are the newest style of bathroom sink that is quickly becoming popular in homes. These sinks have a more modern look and subsequently are incorporated into modern bathroom vanities. When shopping for a new bathroom vanity, you need to ask yourself what type of sink you want. A very modern vanity might not be able to handle a submerged/sunk in sink.
Finally, for the ultra custom look is the artistic or decorative bathroom vanity. This type of vanity is a cross between a furniture vanity and a piece of art. They offer the style and detailing of furniture, with the artistic touches of a piece of art. For the homeowner that truly wants to make a statement with their bathroom design, or even make it a centerpiece of the house, the artistic bathroom vanity is the ultimate choice. However, this type of high design comes at a price... with most vanities starting at $1,000 and going up from there, this is no small investment. The really nice thing about the handful of companies that are selling them, is that they come as a complete kit with the vanity top, sink bowl, and matching mirror included. There are not a lot of manufacturers out there, so if you are looking for a decorative bathroom vanity, be prepared to surf the web.
Make sure you choose a vanity of the right height. Most bathroom vanities are built at a standard height of 30 inches. Fine if you’re the standard height, but if you’re particularly short then you may find that the height of the vanity is too high for you, and if you’re 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. Similarly you need to consider the height of the bathroom mirror above the bathroom vanity for the same reason.
