Traditional bathroom vanity base units bring convenience, comfort, and sophistication to any bathroom setting. Exuding the luxury of old-world European comfort, they are considered to be “furniture-style” vanities. In other words, they come with elegant hardware, ornate designs, and intricate molding. Although you’ll find them in a variety of colors, most traditional vanities come in neutral or wood colors. They sometimes include a mirror as a focal point and often incorporate intricate metal or gilded wood features. From a style perspective, modern bathroom vanities are the polar opposites of traditional vanities. Instead of gilded accents, metal hardware, and carved woods, modern designs celebrate minimalism. Characteristics associated with the modern style include bold colors, unadorned decor, and simple lines. You also have many choices when it comes to tall bathroom vanities. Modern vanities are often constructed from different materials than traditional vanities. They come in plastic, molded plywood, teak, leather, and polished metals.
A furniture-style cabinet can be an ideal solution for storage in a small bathroom where floor space is limited, or simply for stylistic purposes. New cabinetry can be made to look like old dressers or curio cabinets that have been repurposed for vanities or linen closets.
The standard vanity height for a bathroom is between 85cm to 90cm, but they can be installed higher if need be. However, should you plan on selling the property in the near future, keep in mind that families with children, or who are short, won’t appreciate a custom-height vanity. Furthermore, this height should be adapted to suit the type of sink you choose for your vanity. A vessel sink that sits flush with the bench top doesn’t require adjustment, while a stone basin or similar that sits atop the bench top requires the cabinet to be slightly lowered so hands can be washed comfortably. Hang mirror at eye level, usually between 160-175cm on average.
