Bathroom vanities can benefit a numbers of resolutions in a bathroom setting. These items differ in size, shape, and outward area. They offer a place to store items, to keep clean in the bathroom, and as a heart for most restroom areas. They range from the modern sheik to the old shaped handmade look. Each element can vary in color, height, width, and storing area. Prices also range from very cheap for new or renovated units to highly exclusive for hand carved or rare material units.
If you are just a homeowner expecting to upgrade, make a change, or buying a first vanity for a home then the possibilities are truly limitless. Styles are available that have no storage space, called floating vanities, those that have more than one sink, and those that have built in cabinets. The tops vary in shape and material, ranging from marble to plastic and wood. Pieces can be purchased that are meant to be placed in a corner as a space saver or along a full wall to add charm to a bathroom. While most vanities will have a storage space under the sink, many also have drawers or other small sections along the sides.
Bathroom vanities, as all styles of furniture, should be selected to fit the space for which they must serve. A longer vanity with no storage and many sinks would be ideal for a public restaurant or other public area. This way numerous people could use the services at once without creating a line or misperception. They are not limited to public areas, but functionality tends to triumph over form for large restroom areas.
Set up a unit with a sink does require some basic plumbing skills to assure no leaks occur so a licensed contractor may be the best person for the job. However, a diehard do it yourselfer can also install a bathroom vanity. Vanities can be purchased at most local hardware stores or ordered online or factory direct for those who are cost conscious.
Modern vanities incline to have marble or other strong material as the top with wood bases. These versions also have a tendency to raised sinks and more modern fixtures. If modern is not your stylishness, then antique or antique looking styles are also available. Antique vanities are likely to hand carved and wooden with recessed sinks that sit down in the vanity. The storage units are typically larger. Any type will serve the purpose, but style must be taken into thought.
