You’re So Vain
Despite the fact that most people would hardly consider the topic of bathroom vanities to be an exciting one, they can actually be one of the best features in a home. In fact, when done right, bathrooms are one of the biggest selling points in a house; and part of creating a truly beautiful space rests squarely on the shoulders of bathroom vanities. Rather than simply following the formulaic plans and layouts of the uninspiring versions so often found in older homes, however, homeowners now pay more attention to the finer details, considering things like finishes; storage space; counter area; and even the number of sinks will suit their needs and satisfy their style. Vanities have become show-stoppers, with countertops made from beautiful materials like polished granite and marble; sinks that look like pieces of art; fixtures that fairly scream opulence or modernity and offer waterfall effects; and cabinetry that’s anything but basic.
Bathroom vanities are key components to any serviceable bathroom, but they don’t have to look like workhorses. With so many styles of cabinetry, faucets, fixtures, countertop materials, and sinks available, the options are nearly endless; and whether you’re going for a spa like space or hoping to create a rustic feel, bathroom vanities are a pivotal point in continuing that theme.
Get Vanity Insanity
Before you design your bathroom, consult with a custom home builder or a bath remodeling contractor to determine the best layout for your space. One of the deciding factors in creating your perfect vanity area is knowing how much space you have to work with; and from there, you can discuss options like backsplash materials, cabinet colors, and the shape of your sink. Love the look of a bowl basins? Think about installing a glass or hammered copper washbasin bowl on your counter top. Prefer streamline styles with geometric shapes? Choose a rectangular brushed steel faucet rather than one with a traditional gooseneck design. Maximize your morning routine with dual sink areas and extra long countertops, and choose a cabinet design with ample storage space. Play up the color factor with dynamic tiles in the backsplash, or choose a bold paint rather than going with a more natural finish for your cabinets. Bathroom vanities really can be a place to let your flair for style shine through, so think outside the box and use something a bit unconventional like an antique dresser as the base, then top it off with a counter material you love and install your sink. Whatever you choose, it really is all about you…so don’t be afraid to be a little vain.
