Bathroom Vanities Are Essential In Your Bathroom

Bathroom vanities are a very important item in every bathroom. Although not many people realize it when choosing one, bathroom vanities are mainly used for storage of private items as well as holding towels, hair products and styling tools. Many times people who are buying bathroom vanities are concerned about the look only. They give very little thought to the storage capacity and if whether they prefer drawers or shelves. It’s just very important to realize that bathroom vanities don’t just look pretty; they are an essential and practical element in your bathroom.

Bathroom vanities come in as many shapes, sizes and colors as there are in the rainbow. And it doesn’t matter what size bathroom you have, there are bathroom vanities to fit every size, shape and style. Again, when choosing bathroom vanities, it’s very important to decide what you need for storage. If you are buying bathroom vanities for a guest bath then you might not need as much room as you would in a master bathroom.

When choosingbathroom vanities, it’s imperative that you know what style and decor will be in that specific bathroom. If you are doing a complete remodel, then you are starting from scratch so you can choose whichever design you’d like. Many bathroom vanities come in different shades of wood that can be matched to the woodwork in your home or you can match the walls or flooring. Also, make sure you accurately measure the space that the bathroom vanity will go into so that you don’t get one that is too large for the opening.

Sometimes, the opening is larger than the bathroom vanity that was there, and you can get a new vanity that is larger. Some bathroom vanities are double wide while others have double sinks mainly used for master bathrooms. Decide beforehand how much usable space you need from the vanity–normally this depends on what bathroom it will go into and how large your family is. Whatever you are looking for can be found. The market is flooded with all different shapes, sizes and colors. No matter what your needs, bathroom vanities that are perfect for your space are out there!

Decide What Kind of Vanities You Prefer Before Shopping

With so many different vanities to choose from it’s easy to see how a homeowner could feel intimidated when shopping for new furniture to revamp their bathroom. There are furniture-style vanities, antique reproductions, ultra modern wall-hung units with open shelving, conventional units, and a wide variety of sink designs to choose from. If you know what kind of vanities you are looking for before you start shopping, then you can avoid being one of those intimidated buyers who might just make a purchase they regret.

Homeowners with full sized bathrooms and very sophisticated tastes may preferfurniture-style vanities, because they give a very finished and refined look to a larger master bath. These vanities are designed to look and function like other furniture items such as dressers, buffets, and chests of drawers. Upholstered vanity seating is often available for these finer furniture sets as well. Antique reproductions are the perfect vanities for people who prefer the appearance of older classic furniture. While real antiques would need to be refitted for modern plumbing, reproductions come ready to install on day one. 

Antique reproduction vanities have all the beauty without any of the hassles. Modern vanities tend to be much more minimalist in their design and often have open shelving hung on the wall rather than elaborately designed freestanding cabinets. Metallic fixtures, contemporary lighting and simple wall-mounted mirrors are also commonplace. More innovative options such as vessel sinks are also available, which resemble a bowl that sits on top of the bathroom vanity.

If you prefer to stick with what you know, there are also the tried and true conventional vanities. These include bathroom cabinets with storage space for towels, washcloths, toiletries and more. As long as you buy what you like and look for high quality you can’t go wrong.

Brave Vanities Bathroom Remodel

 I keep looking at my outdated bathroom and wondering exactly where I can start to improve on it. There’s the broken toilet, the flowery laminate floor, the ugly yellow acrylic counter tops and cracked bathtub…there’s simply too much wrong with this room! I don’t know where to begin.

After looking at some how-to books and home design magazines, I set out to remodel my bathroom. Apparently, according to all of the sources, it’s prudent to start with the vanity. Since the vanity tends to be the focal point of any bathroom, by purchasing or building your vanity first, you can create an aesthetic around it. This makes it relatively easy to decide upon other fixtures in the bathroom when you have a central inspiration to establish from.

I went to a site called Premiere Vanities on the counsel of a friend and I was amazed to find all the options they have available. From single bathroom vanities with one sink to ornately accented antique bathroom vanities, I actually had a lot of trouble choosing a unit for my new idea of a vanities bathroom. Finally, I decided that because of all the years of having an unfortunate old-fashioned looking space, I really needed a dramatic transformation.

The only aesthetic I think that can offset the outmoded appearance of my bathroom is something completely oppositional to the gaudy 70s wallpaper that I have going on right now. After much contemplation, I’m pretty sure I want to go with the Chic Black Single Vanity. It’s unique in that it is entirely mounted on the wall. It almost appears as if it’s floating! I love how sleek the whole set is. Now, all I have to do is to find decor that will complement the modern style. I’m so excited to start my vanities bathroom remodel!
