Vanities often make or break your bathroom. If it’s a full bath, it provides the centerpiece between your toilet and shower. For a half bath, however, it quite literally IS the bathroom. That’s why it’s important to make sure that you love the vanity you choose. To help you get started, we have a few different types of popular vanity styles that we discuss below:
This is one of the most popular types of vanities. With the sink located inside of a large rectangle full of drawers and cabinet space, this is a very effective way to maximize space and storage in your bathroom – whether full or half. Often, people install these with a mirror to increase the perceived space of a bathroom as these vanities certainly take their fair share of space.
An under-sink vanity is useful for a number of reasons. The most important being that the sink is installed below the vanity surface leaving you more room to place your amenities without worrying about bumping into the sink wall. If you desire a greater amount of surface area to play around with arranging your various bathroom accoutrements then this just might be the vanity type for you!
These vanities are certainly eye-popping and will be sure to stun your guests! The sink is installed into the vanity itself, however, it rests atop the vanity in a sort of vessel – resembling a bowl of some type. There are circular, ovular, and rectangular examples galore so don’t think that you’re stuck with one particular design of sink! You can also choose what sort of storage options you want below (shelves, drawers, cabinets, etc).
These vanities are definitely modern looking and have a certain charm to them. As you might have guessed, these vanities hang off the wall and so do not need to touch the ground. This can add the effect of having more space in your bathroom as well as feeling less cluttered.
While there are multitudes of different, specific vanities and you can customize to your heart’s content these four categories are the most common and sought-after. Use the above styles and examples to best illustrate what you’re looking for and help guide your shopping to find just the right style of vanity for you!
