Vanity units are becoming very popular with modern bathrooms, as they combine a storage cabinet underneath a ceramic wash basin.
Not only can vanity units add to the look and style of a bathroom, they provide practicality and functionality by utilising more storage space discretely.
Bathroom vanity units are available in every style, finish and colour imaginable and to suit modern, classic or vintage bathroom themes.
Bathroom sink cabinets can be ‘mixed and matched’ to suit the vanity unit, and of course toilet vanity units are available also.
There are a vast range of types of bathroom vanity units to suit every bathroom, such as:-
Traditional vanity units are suited to larger bathrooms, as they are almost like mini wardrobes. Often traditional vanity units will be double-width, tall and with generous wide-opening doors, whilst retaining the look traditional furniture rather than sleek, modern cabinets.
Consequently, traditional vanity units tend to be wooden or laminate construction rather than metal, so are generally better suited to older, classic style bathrooms.
Cloakroom vanity units are aimed at providing maximum storage and practicality in smaller bathrooms, for example downstairs toilets. Ideal when combined with space saving toilets, cloakroom vanity units can provide all the storage requirements – towels, soaps, toilet rolls etc. – in one place and ‘out of sight, out of mind’.
Due to space restrictions, cloakroom vanity units tend to have a wider range of shapes (taller, narrower, wider etc.) and especially when combined with a half-size or narrow sink unit.
A wall hung vanity unit combines the practicality and organisation of floor standing vanity unit with the space-saving features of the cloakroom vanity unit.
Wall hung vanity units are fixed solidly to walls, rather than bearing onto the ground, which can not only look neater and nice but is also easier to clean around and underneath.
Floor standing vanity units are ideal for being the focal point of the bathroom, as they tend to be wider – more like dressing room drawers – so can provide lots of bathroom storage.
Ideal for total bathroom organisations, floor standing vanity units can easily accommodate all the bathroom items needed for large families, thus leading to a neater, tidier bathroom.
Washstands are vanity units designed for smaller bathrooms, and are generally ‘open plan’ – such as with legs and perhaps a shelf or two for storage.
Washstands are generally a ceramic basin on a chrome, aluminium or wooden finish and in a antique or Victorian style.
In addition to being more practical for a smaller bathroom, washstands are ideal for those bathrooms looking to achieve a ‘spa’ feel or ambiance, for instance by displaying expensive toiletries and grooming products on their shelves, or hanging luscious towels over.
