Many people pay special attention when it comes to remodeling and decoration of bathrooms. Bathrooms are getting really important in modern times because they are the perfect room where people can get relaxed after a stressful day. Since this part of the home is usually not very big it is crucial to find a way to make it functional and practical, but it also must be designed in a beautiful way. There is no doubt that bathroom remodeling can be very expensive, so people who are looking for a way to refresh the appearance of their bathroom without investing much should consider replacing their bathroom vanity. So, what exactly is a bathroom vanity?
This is a piece of furniture used in the bathroom. It can be used for more than one thing. In the past, the bathroom vanity was usually used to house the sink and all the installations (primarily plumbing) that are related to sink. If the bathroom vanity is designed in a good way all these things are nicely covered. But modern, bathroom vanities also serve as cabinets. This is the place where we store our soaps, toothpastes, shower gels and all the products that we don’t want to be left outside in the bathroom and make it look messy. Another purpose of bathroom vanities is to serve as a basis for mirrors, although many experts believe that the mirror is not part of the bathroom vanity.
Over the years, designers have created different bathroom vanity styles and it is up to the owner’s preferences, the dimensions of the bathroom and the owner’s budget to decide which style they will choose. The following is a list of some of the popular bathroom vanity styles that are usually used in bathroom remodeling.
- To start with, classic bathroom vanities are still very popular among homeowners from all generations. They are most often made of wood and the overall design has its basis in some classical bathroom elements. This style can be divided into two groups – the one that uses many ornaments and decorations and the one that keeps things simple. Depending on the materials used in the manufacturing process they can be very expensive, but they can also be affordable.
- Those who are interested in modern design should know that bathroom vanities in this style come in different sizes and shapes. There are also many different materials used in their production. Depending on the owner’s preference these vanities can emphasize elegance or they can be simply fun.
The majority of bathroom vanities are single basin, but double basins or even multiple basins are popular too. Of course the multiple basins are almost exclusively used in commercial purposes while the double basin or vanities with two sinks are used in master bedrooms. As previously mentioned, many different materials are used in modern bathroom vanities and some of these materials include: wood, glass, ceramic, marble, copper and even some synthetic materials too.
