The Most Important Considerations When Buying A Vanity For Your Bathroom

When you undertake a bathroom makeover, do you simply want to spruce up the bathroom? Sprucing up is relatively easy because you only need to buy a vanity unit that can be the focus of the overall look of the bathroom. You can go traditional, modern or somewhere in between by simply selecting the right vanity.

The first step when buying a vanity unit is to measure the available space of your bathroom. There must be enough room when entry and shower doors are open. Open the vanity doors and drawers against the dimensions of the bathroom to make sure that it will not disrupt the flow of traffic. Check plumbing particularly if the vanity unit includes a stone basin.

Vanities come in different styles but the most common are the freestanding and built-in. Freestanding vanities are ideal for small spaces while built-in vanities look good for bigger bathroom. If the purpose for buying a vanity unit is for extra counter and storage space, your better choice will be the built-in style.

You also need to decide whether you want a vanity unit with or without a top. A vanity unit with a top is easier to install but the downside is you are stuck with the top that comes with the vanity. Purchasing a vanity without a top allows you to choose the kind of material for the top. Countertops are available in a range of materials from solid surface, glass cultured and natural stone.

You can go for a modern look in your bathroom through your choice of vanity. Common material for vanities is wood but you also have the option of glass or metal. If you are adventurous, you can paint the vanity unit with the colour of your choice. Think about your storage requirements because countertop space as well as drawers will be very important.

If you want to achieve the highest level of luxury and aesthetic perfection in your bathroom, your best option is Painted Vanity Units with Oak Tops. It is also available with two stone solid basin sets in white or cream marble, natural travertine or the traditional ceramic.
