Choosing the Right Bathroom Vanities and Bathroom Vanity Accessories
Bathroom vanities are an important part to any bathroom. The vanity is an integral part of the bathroom and can be used as additional storage and also serve other purposes aside from the simple function of acting as a bathroom sink. How do you know what the right vanities are for you? At Modo Bath, we have put together a guide for you to help you choose the right bathroom vanity for your project.
Here are things to consider when looking for your bathroom vanities.
The size of your bathroom will generally give you the indication of the size of the bathroom vanity that you need. The first thing you need to know is what kind of bathroom you are working with. If you are looking to install a bathroom vanity in a master bathroom, you will probably want to consider choosing a double vanity or a larger vanity (40” or greater). If you are working with a smaller guest bathroom, consider choosing something smaller (24” or less).
When searching for a bathroom vanity, you should determine the purpose(s) you want that vanity to serve. First, know what’s important to you. Do you want storage space? Cabinets or drawers? Is this a residential or commercial project? Different vanities fit into different bathroom styles so knowing what you want your vanity to have and the space you can allocate for is important in choosing the perfect bathroom vanity.
Aside from functionality, appearance and design is important to many people when it comes to bathroom fixtures. Make sure your bathroom vanity matches well with what you already have in your bathroom, and vice versa. If you are looking for a more minimalistic look, consider a wall mounted or floating bathroom vanity. Keep in mind, a wall mounted bathroom vanity will require a backing to install, while a free standing bathroom vanity makes for an easier installation process.
Now that you have chosen a bathroom vanity, you will definitely want to add a complementary wall mirror. You can search for a complete bathroom vanity set that may already include a matching mirror and at times some additional cabinetinary. If you purchase a bathroom vanity separately, this will give you the opportunity to mix and match vanities and mirrors to find a combination one most fitting for you.
When choosing a wall mirror for your vanity, decide if you want that mirror lighted or not lighted and what shape you prefer for the mirror. It is important to note that the length of the mirror should be approximately the same length as the vanity.
Cabinets, drawer units, accessories and bathroom seating are pieces of furniture that are useful in their own ways. If you need more storage space, consider looking into cabinets and drawer units to help conserve space in your bathroom. Bathroom vanity accessories such as soap dispensers and soap dishes can finalize a vanity and bathroom seating can add comfort to the bathroom.
Bathroom vanities can be made of a variety of materials. Generally most of the bathroom vanities available are made of wood or mdf fibreboard. Glass, solid surface and metal vanities are a little less common. It is common for vanities to have an integrated bathroom sink, and for the material of the sink to be either ceramic or solid surface. Both provide a clean and simple design that is perfectly integrated with the bathroom vanity. We encourage you to explore all of the different finishes available to find the perfect theme for your bathroom decor.
