Bathroom Vanity. Wednesday , August 15th , 2018 - 12:08:47 PM
A bathroom is one of the most important rooms in the house. And the most important part of your bathroom is your bathroom vanity. A bathroom vanity is a piece of furniture with a number of purposes. Usually you would expect your vanity to house your sink, and all the plumbing that goes with it. Hopefully with all the plumbing nicely housed out of view and out of the way.
Bathroom Vanity Sink Style. One specific feature of a bathroom vanity is the sink. Most vanities have a sink built into the top portion. Each vanity incorporates a sink differently. Some are submerged/sunk into the top of the vanity while others are designed for vessel sinks (sinks that rest on the top surface). Vessel sinks are the newest style of bathroom sink that is quickly becoming popular in homes. These sinks have a more modern look and subsequently are incorporated into modern bathroom vanities. When shopping for a new bathroom vanity, you need to ask yourself what type of sink you want. A very modern vanity might not be able to handle a submerged/sunk in sink.
Your vanity lights can be can be used to not only enhance light around the vanity but also to illuminate the entire bathroom. Whether you should choose a large or small light over the vanity will be a personal choice determined by your design ideas and how much illumination you want. The choice of mirrors for your bathroom vanity cabinets can include framed and frame-less mirrors that are beveled or not. You can also select lighting built into the mirror, around your mirror from several styles to light up and help your new bathroom reflect your personality.
Cabinet style is also critical. Style sets the overall tone for your bathroom design. Keep in mind that a vanity cabinet that is too large or too tall will make your bathroom feel small, and cramped, however, a vanity that is too small for the space will just look lost, and out-of-place. If choosing a vessel sink, the top of the cabinet needs to be lower than standard in order to allow for the height of the sink bowl to be comfortably accessed. The use of a vessel sink however, does allow for more drawers, and under cabinet storage space. A standard recessed sink limits this available space.
