How to choose one from the multitude of bathroom vanity units on the market is just one of the many choices we face when renovating a bathroom. A bathroom vanity unit is a crucial part of the jigsaw when designing your new bathroom and possibly requires as much consideration as the bath or shower you choose. The right vanity unit will make a style statement, provide storage and enhance the overall look of the room. Hiding away toiletries and cosmetics means the bathroom looks less cluttered and feels more spacious as well as making the task of cleaning it far easier- who doesn’t want that ?!
The choice of vanity units available is endless: floor standing or wall hung, modern or traditional, drawers or cupboards.
If you’re looking to achieve a modern, sleek look to your bathroom then a wall hung unit will enhance this look. Mounting the unit on the wall means more floor space visible which automatically creates a sense of the room feeling more spacious whilst a floor standing unit maximises the storage space beneath the wash basin.
Choosing a handle-less, sleek looking unit will provide a modern look and feel to the room but depending on the sanitary ware you choose, a more traditional piece of furniture may work better for you.
Whichever type and style of vanity unit you opt for, you will have the choice of drawers or cupboards.
Whilst traditional units tend to favour cupboards, drawers are often a more practical solution for storing bathroom essentials as nothing gets tucked away, out of sight or reach, at the back of the cupboard.
Whilst there are too many manufacturers to mention producing bathroom vanity units, having a bespoke unit made to measure is also a popular option. This means you have total flexibility when it comes to drawers versus cupboards, colour and finish, worktop surface and wash basin shape.
Here are two examples of made to measure vanity units we have recently had made for clients:
Wooden unit with solid oak, dovetail drawer boxes and cupboard finished in a paint colour chosen by the client, Hi-Macs worktop 24mm thick in colour Gemini with square upstands and Villeroy & Boch Architectura under mounted washbasin
Vanity unit with solid oak handle-less drawer in colour Sand Zebrano, worksurface and integral basin in Hi-Macs, colour Riviera Sand
