Camilla. Bathroom Vanity. April 08th , 2018.
Something that has become more popular in recent years with people trying to create a more custom look in their bathroom is what they call a bathroom furniture vanity. It is called a furniture vanity, because people were literally taking antique furniture and retro-fitting them to accommodate plumbing and a sink. Because of the demand for this type of vanity, manufacturers finally started creating vanities that look like antique pieces of furniture. You will find this type of vanity in a lot of the higher end homes that want to keep the custom look of the house flowing into the bathroom. The possibilities are endless when it comes to furniture vanities, and the prices can range from a couple hundred up to a couple thousand. This is a great look if you have the big budget required to have your bathroom look as nice as the vanity does!
Your vanity lights can be can be used to not only enhance light around the vanity but also to illuminate the entire bathroom. Whether you should choose a large or small light over the vanity will be a personal choice determined by your design ideas and how much illumination you want. The choice of mirrors for your bathroom vanity cabinets can include framed and frame-less mirrors that are beveled or not. You can also select lighting built into the mirror, around your mirror from several styles to light up and help your new bathroom reflect your personality.
Vanity sinks: Vanity sinks can come in many different sizes to fit different spaces of vanities. Choosing bathroom vanities is mainly based on the space available in the bathroom, since maximizing the space and adding storage is also essential. Bathroom vanities that can double up as drawers with tons of storage in the bathroom are quickly becoming famous because of their efficiency and modern feel. Marble sinks and china sinks go very well with the vanities, and are mounted on top of them, just like pedestals. Small bathroom vanities can be mounted on the wall and larger vanities suit the luxury bathroom models to give it a spa-like feel. Several bathroom vanities come with different counter tops with the sink attachments. Granite countertop to match the granite sink is a popular choice in designing bathrooms that are modern, yet quaint.
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.
