Bathroom design is one of the most exciting phases of building a new home or renovating an existing home. The bathroom is one of the most important rooms in the house and serves as not only a necessary functional space, but it can also be a beautiful space evoking relaxation and calm to get the most out of long, luxurious soaks. If long hot baths aren’t what you’re looking for and economy of space is an issue, then your bathroom vanity will be one of the most important product decisions you make in the design process.
Choosing a vanity for your new or existing bathroom can be tricky. You have a lot of different styles and finishes to choose from, offering you all kinds of design elements and capacity from storage opportunities to hiding your plumbing fixtures. There are generally two types available which are wall hung vanities and floor mounted vanities.
Wall Hung Vanities
A wall hung vanity is a piece mounted on the wall, up off the floor space of your bathroom. Installing a wall hung vanity can help to generate a sense of space and depth for smaller bathrooms, giving the illusion of more floor space than there actually is. When planning your vanity unit, it is important to work with your builder and plumber to ensure the wall your vanity will be mounted on is suitable for weight bearing.
Floor Mount Vanities
A floor mounted vanity is mounted to the floor in a more traditional design and is generally used to cover your plumbing. If you’re renovating an existing space with plumbing already fixed, a modern floor mounted vanity can be an economical way of bringing new life into your bathroom or washroom.
