Bathroom vanities add the defining flare to your bathroom. They are often the centerpiece, the eye catcher, and the style setter. They act as the design hub for the rest of the bathroom to be built around, and they allow for unique styles and limitless customization of virtually any combination. With careful planning and a little creativity, the right vanity can add the perfect flare to your bathroom renovation.
Vanities come in a wide variety of colors to meet the surrounding environment of your bathroom. White is a popular color for home owners who want an antique look and it goes great with darker walls and dark-tiled floors. Wood vanities are ideal in lighter bathrooms, particularly ones which are well lit. They are a popular choice among home owners who are looking to add a feel of formality and sophistication to their home. These types of vanities are available in cherry, oak, and walnut, and they often come with gloss finishes to add to their natural wood finish. The majority of wooden vanities are chemically treated to ward of water damage common to bathroom amenities.
The tops of the vanities are also an important aspect to consider before purchase. You can choose from ceramic tiles, wood, or even solid materials such as metal, stone, or concrete. Choosing from these materials should first come down to your design needs, then be chosen by virtue of your particular lifestyle. Stone for example is an extremely durable material that is easy to replace, but it stains easily and is susceptible to scratches. Therefore, it may not be a good option for homes with children. Laminates are easier to clean and to keep dry than are woods and steels, but they may not offer the contemporary design options desired by home owners with modern tastes.
Pre-assembled vanities are a great way to add a custom look to your bathroom without spending a fortune to do so. These are the types of vanities you will find in newly built homes in the mid-level price range. Most supply stores sell stylish vanities that you can install without much assembly, and if it’s part of an entire renovation, you can use the size of the vanity to dictate the sizes and colors of your other amenities.
Though pre-assembled versions are far more basic than options available with custom designs, they still offer a wide range of styles and colors that can match virtually any renovation plan. Consequently, they are perfect for home owners who are on a budget, and a good renovation team can install them and still make them look like a custom addition to your bathroom.
The most luxurious vanities are called custom vanities. They fall somewhere between a standard vanity and a piece of art. If you can think it, it can be created. In recent years, a popular trend has been to take a piece of antique furniture and retro-fit it to accommodate a sink and plumbing. With the right amount of research and creativity, any idea is possible.
