Camilla. Bathroom Vanity. April 04th , 2018.
Vessel Sinks: Sinks are the basic requirement for any bathroom and are available in a number of designs and materials. Sinks that are basic and functional are perfect for a classic bathroom. While elaborate designs and glossy sinks are a perfect fit for luxurious bathrooms. It is important to coordinate the bathroom vanities to achieve a pulled together, well designed look for the bathroom. Sinks can be sleek and transparent, made out of glass, and come in multiple shades to suit the color scheme. Ceramic sinks can come in a number of different textures and designs as well. Sinks can be mounted on top of the pedestals or vanities to make them more functional and add element of storage on to the bathroom.
Pedestals Sinks: Pedestal sinks made out of granite are apt for classy bathrooms and can look both eclectic and vintage with the right choice of bathroom vanities. Granite sinks go well with any kind of pedestals and are timeless in style. Different hues of granite sinks are also available so that the bathroom vanities can tie together with different color schemes. There is also more choices in terms of choosing the pedestals. Pedestals themselves can be of different designs and shapes and be decorative. Usually, people like having ornate pedestals that can be wall mounted to save the space in the bathroom. Ornate pedestals add elements of decoration in the bathroom without crowding the space and they come with the sink fitted on top.
Measuring your bathroom is the first step in the planning process for any remodel. This will provide you with a good feel for the location of items such as doors, windows, and electrical outlets. These fixtures are important to consider when allocating space for your bathroom vanity furniture. There needs to be enough space for the bathroom door to swing freely without hitting your newly purchased vanity. Keeping the various electrical outlets open, and available, must also be considered. There can also be restrictions in the local building codes for proper placement of vanities, proximate to electrical outlets. Accidently covering over the only outlets in a bathroom can cause additional functional problems. The proximity to other components; tub, toilet, and shower needs to be considered as well. You always want to leave enough space between each fixture to allow for easy cleaning, and for a larger individual to be comfortable in the room.
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.
