Are you tired of having a drab and outdated bathroom? Perhaps you’ve been meaning to get around to refurbishing it for months now and have never seemed to be able to find the time.
Whatever the case, often, a fresh lick of paint and a new vanity unit is all you need to bring it back to life. If you don’t want to spend thousands upon thousands of pounds gutting your bathroom and starting from scratch, simply replacing some of the old vanities might be just the solution that you’ve been looking for.
That said, how do you pick the perfect vanity unit for you? In this article, we’re going to take you through some things to consider before choosing your ideal bathroom vanity unit…
1 – How Much Space Do You Have to Play with?
Before you do anything, first you need to understand how much floor-space you have available to play with. The last thing you need is to rush in a buy a vanity unit that looks the part, only to find that you can’t fit it comfortably into your bathroom! Or that in doing so, you are left feeling squashed and uncomfortable every time you want to sit down and use the toilet.
What you need to do, is get the tape measure out and see how much floor space is available to you. Be careful and take your time so that when choosing your vanity, you know exactly what size you can afford without comprising the overall comfort and aesthetic design of your bathroom.
2 – How Much Storage Do You Need?
How much storage do you have in your bathroom at the moment? Is your current vanity unit providing enough storage for all of your toiletries? Or are you left with a cluttered countertop? If you don’t have quite enough storage as it is, then you know that when purchasing a new vanity unit, that you could do with opting for a little more storage solutions.
Not only that, but if you are really struggling for space due to having a smaller bathroom, you should consider installing some shelves, adding hooks to the back of the bathroom door, and maybe even buying yourself a nice mirror to give the bathroom a sense of being more spacious.
3 – What Colour Scheme Do You Want to Go for?
At bathrooms and more, we have a grand variety of colours and materials to choose from when it comes to vanity units. We have grey, off-white, and even natural oak coloured vanities, coupled with sandy travertine countertops and basins, marble, quartz, onyx, and many more!
So, the question is, what type of colour scheme do you want to go for? Would you like to brighten your bathroom up a bit? Or perhaps add some darker colours for contrast? There are many options to choose from, so take your time and decide which styles will be best for you.
4 – Is it the Master Bathroom? Or Perhaps a Cloakroom?
Similar to deciding on how much floor space you have available to play with; which bathroom are you looking to spruce up? Are you working on the cloakroom downstairs? Or is it time to give the master bathroom a bit of love?
Depending on the bathroom that you are working on, will influence the type of vanity that will work best for that space. For example: for the master bathroom, a stunning white marble top vanity with double ceramic basins can offer an attractive ‘his and hers’ option for you; whereas a cloakroom could benefit greatly from a convenient grey painted travertine top corner unit, particularly if space is an issue.
