A bathroom vanity is almost indispensable now when it comes to bathroom decoration. It can provide not just a convenient counter upon which to set the materials you need for your personal ablutions but may also be a good focal point for your bathroom. Choosing the right vanity is thus very important, and below are some things to keep in mind about vanity specifics and vanity types before you make any final decisions.
The first thing to think of is what kind of vanity you want. Generally, vanities are divided into the double-vessel and single-vessel categories. Double-vessel vanities obviously have two vessels (that is, sinks) and are more commonly used by those who are installing a large bathroom to be used by the couple of a household. Single-vessels have only one sink and are more popular with those who live alone or who want to install a vanity for their child’s personal bathroom.
The next thing to think about is the size. Some types of vanities take up more space than others, not just because of the simple issue of size but also because of the way they are designed: they might have convex sides or stylistic frills that mean they take up more space than other vanities roughly the same size. You should be sure to take measurements of your bathroom in advance, map out the total floor and wall space you are willing to dedicate to the vanity, then take measurements of that area and use them as the reference for your selection later.
The matter of material also comes into play. You might be a person who prefers a wooden vanity, for instance, or perhaps one who would rather have a marble one in place. There are now many kinds of materials used for vanities, and some vanities are even tiled so that they match the rest of the bathroom even better. The question of material usually ties in with that of style: you should look for a vanity that complements or provides a positive contrast for the rest of your bathroom decor, from the paint colours used in the space to the very patterns, hues, and materials used for the bathroom tiles. Look too for a vanity that suits your preferences in its design. For instance, there are vanities that are formed to look like counters just naturally extending from the wall itself. There are vanities that are styled in the pedestal design, and there are vanities that are done in an almost Renaissance period design. You shall be sure to find one to your taste with the share range in the choices.
