While buying a bathroom vanity, there are a few considerations that you should pay attention to. Check on all the other elements in your bathroom, especially the ones that are more permanent. The tiles or any countertops and the paint on the walls are all very important.
The vanity that you buy, should match the style of the existing décor. If you are of a creative and have a basic understanding about design, it will be very easy for you to pick the perfect vanity for your bathroom.
It is a good idea to take a picture of your bathroom and measurements before you actually visit the vanity store. Some stores will also send a member of their staff to check on what kind of furniture you actually need. They will look at the space in your bathroom and offer advice about colors, materials and various sizes of the vanities that will look good in your bathroom.
Design Aspect Of The Vanity
On the other hand, you might know what you like but you are not sure about the design aspect of the cabinet. You can always take the advice of an interior designer. Alternatively, you can take the help of sales staff at the store you will be buying the vanity from. They are experienced and have a lot of working knowledge about bathroom furniture and vanities.
The contemporary designs will have glass that is clear or frosted, colored, textured or plain. They may have angled or curved cabinet doors and drawers that are a combination of metal and glass.
Wall Mount Vanities
Other options that are available today are the wall mount vanities that have no legs. These do not touch the floor at all and are attached to a wall instead. They look very elegant and also add dimension to the room.
Free Standing Vanities
If your bathroom is large with a high ceiling you can have the freestanding vanities that have legs. On the other hand, if the bathroom space is small, you can settle for a bathroom vanity that sits off the floor.
Colors In Your Bathroom
Having bright and light colored tiling on the walls and the floor make the space seem larger than it actually is. For a contemporary look, the tile wainscoting can be set at a higher level and the border can be fitted at that point all along the bathroom walls. It can run right behind the vanity as well.
You can complete the modern look of your bathroom with contemporary accessories and fittings. Chrome, glass, ceramic and modern art pieces and picture frames will all add to the contemporary feel. Always keep the area free of clutter. This will help the space look bigger as well.
