There are so many types of vanities available out there & it can be a challenge to choose what really fits your preferences. Space & the configuration of your bathroom plays a big part in which vanity you decide upon. You also have to consider the functionality for your needs with regards to material, colour, style & design.
Current Vanity Trends
Storage is usually the top priority for most people when choosing a vanity. Current trends reflect vanities with drawers rather than cupboards. Not only do they look modern, they are also a great storage solution. You can maximise the space in each drawer from front to back with ease of access. Compared to cupboards where items often get ‘forgotten’ about if they are not placed at the forefront.
Choosing a vanity
Opting for a wall-mounted or floor-standing vanity is a matter of personal preference, some like the look of the ’floating’ vanity while others prefer vanities that sit on the floor. If you have room for a larger vanity you can also consider the option of having 2 basins. This may be a practical addition for your bigger families.
Vanity tops come in a range of materials, you can opt for a china top with an integrated sink, these are very affordable solutions and extremely practical when it comes to maintenance & cleaning.
Stone top with an above counter basin, semi-recessed basin, or under-mount basin, are very durable but the stone top can increase the costs significantly.
Polymarble composite vanity tops are still readily available, however, these scratch very easily and they soon lose their ‘new’ look.
