Choosing Elegant Bathroom Vanities

By: lynter
Get a new bathroom vanity to improve the look of your bathroom. Even if the rest of the bathroom is thoughtfully designed and decorated it is the vanity that really completes your look. A new vanity is an ideal of updating your bathroom - choose from the many styles available as there is sure to be one to meet your needs.

The color, style and size of your bathroom all have a bearing on the kind of bathroom vanity that you have. If you choose a style that is too large then it will overpower a small bathroom. Consider your existing bathroom - will a space age metal and glass vanity really look good in your more traditional bathroom?

Not everyone is looking for more storage in the bathroom. If you have sufficient storage in a small bathroom then a pedestal style vanity may suit your needs. Choose a vanity that will add style and character to your bathroom. Pedestal vanities may be perfect for the smaller bathrooms, or for the downstairs cloakroom.

If you are looking for a bathroom countertop then you have several options. Choose from ceramic tile, laminate, stone, concrete, or stainless steel. Ceramic tile is the most popular option; it comes in a range of colors, sizes and textures. It does need looking after however as the grout in between the tiles can easily stain. Laminate countertops tend to be the least durable. The most durable countertops are made from stone but these can easily stain - stone is also the most expensive.

When you choose a bathroom vanity consider the effect of lighting. Lighting can add a sense of drama to your bathroom, as well as being functional. Good lighting in a bathroom is important for things like applying makeup, fixing your hair or shaving. Sconce lights provide a more even light; while vanity lights are attractive you still need another form of lighting in your bathroom. General lighting can be created by using an overhead light.

If you are thinking of installing a bathroom vanity, then do it before you install new flooring. Installing new flooring under the cabinets is both a waste of time and money. Installing flooring under the cabinets may result in damage to your flooring. Some of wood flooring is designed to "float" - if it is under the bathroom vanity then it might be restricted and will not be able to expand and contract.

Bathroom vanities in all styles can be purchased online. The Internet offers a huge choice in bathroom fixtures and fittings. Make sure that you have allowed for the shipping price when buying on line as shipping can sometimes be expensive adding quite a sum to the price of your bathroom vanity.

Many people purchase bathroom vanities at their local home improvement store. Some home improvement stores have a number of styles in stock. This means that you can buy your bathroom vanity and take your purchase home the same day. If the bathroom vanity you like is not in stock then most stores will do a custom order for you.

Summary:

Bathroom vanities can change the look and feel of your bathroom and give it a more up to the minute look. They come in a variety of styles. Some bathroom vanities will give you additional storage and improve your bathroom organization.
