Text-Itís a fairly well known fact that a vanity can either make or break the
aesthetic feel and mood of your bathroom. Even if the rest of your bathroom
looks fantastic, with a beautiful unified theme, your vanity is the key
piece of the puzzle that brings the big picture together. Installing a brand
new vanity is in all likelihood the single most efficient way to modernize
your bathroomís appearance; itís easy, too. You can find a massive variety
of totally unique vanity styles and designs, either in stores or online.
When you go to remodel your bathroom, make sure you install the vanity
before you put in any new flooring. If you install the new flooring under
the cabinets, you are wasting both money and time. In some extreme cases,
installing your bathroom flooring first and under the cabinets can cause
extensive damage to the flooring itself. Some types of wood flooring are
designed to ďfloat,Ē meaning their form is dynamic. If such wood flooring is
installed underneath your bath vanity, its natural floating ability (how it
expands and contracts with time and pressure) will be seriously limited.
When you select a vanity, be sure to consider the color, theme, and size of
your bathroom. If you choose a style of bathroom cabinets that is too large,
it can overpower a small powder room. It is also notable that a metal or
glass vanity may not fit in with the existing theme and style of a Victorian
Sometimes, it seems, people simply arenít looking for the additional storage
space that bath vanities provide. If this is the case, a pedestal style
vanity will fit nicely into your bathroom scheme. A pedestal vanity adds
plenty of style and character to any bathroom without imposing on it. These
bath vanities are the perfect size and fit for any small bathroom, from
powder rooms to guest bathrooms, or any small room where a sink is needed.
When purchasing a bathroom countertop you have many unique options. Some of
your options include ceramic tile, plastic sheath or laminate, stone
materials like granite or marble, and metals like stainless steel or copper.
These days, the most popular material for vanity countertops is, without a
doubt, ceramic tile. This material comes in a large array of appealing
colors, shapes, and textures. The downside to ceramic tile is that the grout
between each tile is pretty easy to stain, which means youíll have to take
extra care of it. The least durable countertop material is laminate, while
the most durable are stone countertops (but these easily stain and are the
bath vanities are very easy to find and purchase online. The internet offers
almost unlimited resources for a wide number of vanity styles and varieties.
It is important to note, however, that when you purchase a great new vanity
online, you must remember to account for the shipping price, as this can
sometimes be pretty pricey.
The bath lighting is yet another absolutely critical aspect of any bathroom
remodel that you will need to thoroughly consider. You see, bath lighting
has a dual-purpose: it enhances the drama of any bathroom design, but it
also significantly improves your bathroomís functionality. Every bathroom
needs some task lighting, as this supports the efficacy of small hygienic
functions such as applying makeup or doing your hair, shaving, washing your
face, and brushing your teeth. Sconce lights are useful because they evenly
distribute light throughout your bathroom, and general bath lighting unifies
the bathroom design by coordinating with your very own vanity. General bath
lighting can be achieved with a well-placed overhead light.
Sometimes, local home improvement or hardware stores will have some great
bathroom vanities. These brick and mortar stores often carry a modest
selection of distinctive bath vanities. Since the bath vanities are
generally in stock, you can take your purchase home the same day. Some
stores will even custom order some bath vanities for you, if they donít have
it in their store. So, itís your job now to figure out what works best for
you: are you interested in the wider selection of unique bath vanities
online, or do you prefer the instant gratification of choosing from a
smaller selection in a home improvement store? Make your choice, and happy
