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.
Consider the shape of vanity you need. Should it go along a wall, for example, or do you need a corner unit? Sometimes either will work and you need to decide exactly your requirements. And don’t forget that you also need to make sure that there is space for the doors to open properly. Many people have purchased vanities only to find that the door will only open half way before it contacts a wall, or a shower, for example.
