When people are designing their new bathroom, they seem to be transfixed by the mirrors, the bath or shower, and maybe even the toilet, but the vanity seems to be on of the last things on the list, and the first to have its budget slashed if funding becomes an issue. After reading this article, I hope that perhaps you will rethink this for your next bathroom remodel, because the vanity is often the most used piece of equipment in any bathroom, and making a poor choice at the planning stage, can cause difficulties and frustration later down the line. When you are shopping for modern bathroom vanities you will be pleasantly surprised with how far these vanity designs have come.
Consider Your Positioning
The very first thing to consider is the location of your vanity. Ladies, you may well be spending a lot of time in front of the mirror and on a busy morning, there might be quite a high traffic flow. A poorly positioned vanity could get in the way, causing all parties endless frustration and wasted time. This will apply more for a total redesign, because if you are simply trying to freshen up the bathroom moving the location of the vanity may prove to be an expensive option. Vanities need and hide pipes and water supplies, so simply moving the vanity is not quite as simple or inexpensive as one might imagine.
Think Long And Hard About The Materials In Question
Bathrooms are a tough environment for certain materials. This is why we make our wall decals from only the highest quality material. Any fixture within a bathroom will be exposed to water, steam and heat, so it is important to choose materials that are waterproof, such as marble or if you do go down the natural wood route, ensure that all necessary sealing has been applied before installation. Check to see if there is some form of written guarantee regarding this treatment, but most of all choose wisely.
Moving away from bathrooms for a split second to another favorite of mine iPhones. For those people that have never owned an iPhone, they come in fixed storage sizes. They don’t take an SD card, and you cannot upgrade the storage further down the line. I always advise people to buy the biggest storage they can afford, for this very reason, and when it comes to vanity units, the same applies. Let’s face it ladies, we can never have enough storage, the unit keeps our bathroom looking tidy, and if you skimp on storage, you will regret that decision for as long as you have the bathroom. So ensure that you buy a vanity with sufficient storage now and in the future.
By following these three very basic but important tips, you will end up with a well positioned, good quality vanity that is both stunning to look at, and extremely function; some would say the best of both worlds.
