Your bathroom is likely to be one of the most used rooms in your home. It obviously needs to be highly functional but you also want it to be a space that feels inviting and warm.
That’s why you have to consider some key factors when choosing your bathroom vanity. The vanity mirror you select, for example, will most likely be the focal point in the room, which is why that is definitely one of the factors that need your close attention.
Here is a look at how to end up with the right bathroom vanity choice.
Space is a key consideration
Whether you are lucky enough to have a really large bathroom or have to make the most of more limited space you will still have to be creative and careful with your planning to achieve the best look and feel when the work is done.
The good news is that bathroom vanities come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes.
That means you will be able to find a solution once you have worked out how to maximize the space you have available. Think about how big or small you want your vanity to be. Fit one that is too large and it will make your bathroom look crowded and make it difficult to walk around the room with ease.
On the other hand, if you choose one that is too small it gives an imbalance to the space. Plus it could well mean that you don’t have enough storage space either.
Would it be better to have a freestanding vanity?
You have two options when it comes to modern bathroom vanities. The location and configuration of your existing plumbing could dictate which option is better, unless you are prepared to change all the pipework to make everything work.
A freestanding vanity has the advantage of being flexible in terms of where you want to locate it in your bathroom. If you are tight for room, a wall hung version is very effective at creating the illusion of space.
Choosing the right mirror
One of the biggest decisions that you have to get right when deciding which mirror to have is how large you want it to be.
The overall height and width of the mirror will often be dictated by the size of the vanity. From an aesthetic perspective, it is often preferable to select a size that is a couple of inches shorter than the overall width of your countertop.
Bear in mind who is going to be using the mirror. It wants to be mounted so that the center is at eye level. If you choose a decorative mirror it will help influence and enhance the look and feel of your bathroom.
You should also think about lighting options so that style and functionality are also taken care of when fitting your vanity and bathroom.
It is easy to take your bathroom design to a totally different level when you take the time to think about all of these key design elements and take the time to work on a blueprint that is perfect for the bathroom you have, and want to create.
