What Are Floating Vanities
When building a new home or renovating a bathroom, there is that moment when the homeowner must choose a new bathroom vanity. Should the vanity go to the floor with added storage or should it be a nice, sleek floating vanity? The choice will depend on the decor in the bathroom and the available space. Choose wisely.
Ordering Bathroom Vanities Online
More and more homeowners are choosing to order bathroom vanities online. Why? Because local building supply stores don’t have a very large selection of bathroom vanities in stock. If the vanity must be ordered anyway, why not go online to proven sources that offer a huge selection of styles, finishes, and sizes? One choice of vanity style is a floating vanity.
Floating vanities have a modern, sleek look that homeowners find attractive. They are also a good choice for bathrooms with limited space. Wall-mounted, floating vanities add a sense of space to the bathroom. This type of vanity can come with under-sink storage or with a sleeker look and no storage. There are multiple styles, sizes, and finishes available for shipping.
Online companies offer warranties and pack the vanities for safe shipping. They have generous return and replacement policies in case of shipping damage or other problems. The manufacturers give customers good measuring and installation information, and shipping times are short.
Choosing the Right Bathroom Vanity
When a bathroom is being planned, choose a vanity that will give the room style and function. The vanity is no place to skimp because it will set the style for the whole bathroom. Once the vanity is chosen, select the countertop, faucets, and the rest of the bathroom fixtures to coordinate with it. The size must be determined first. That narrows down the choice of pre-made vanities from all sources. The location of the vanity will determine the space that’s available.
Once the size of the vanity is decided, it is time to look at all the available models and make a choice. Does the bathroom have the space for a vanity with two sinks? Does the budget allow for a stone countertop like marble or granite? Should the sink or sinks be undercounter mounted, set on top of the counter, or be part of the counter? Will the bathroom look best with a vanity that sits on the floor or a floating, wall-mounted vanity? There are many attractive options available.
Why Choose a Floating Vanity?
Homeowners are finding many reasons to choose floating vanities. This type of vanity can make cleaning the bathroom easier and make the bathroom look bigger. A floating vanity can help people with their bathroom organization with either open or closed under-sink shelving. The open space beneath floating vanities can be used to store small children’s step stools. Baskets can be placed under the vanity on the floor to hold each family member’s bath needs.
Also, a floating vanity will give more space for the radiant heat people are putting in bathroom floors for toasty feet while getting ready for work, school, or bed. In addition, when the wall has a nice ceramic tile installation, a floating vanity lets more of it show. The floating vanity can be many painted finishes to avoid the look of too much heavy wood.
Finally, a floating vanity can be installed at the perfect height for the family members who will be using it. This is great for very tall or kind of short homeowners. Why not install the vanity at the perfect height for comfortable use by family members instead of settling for the height vanities that sit on the floor come in? In the end, the homeowner should take the time to find and order the perfect vanity for their new bathroom.
