Upgrade your bathroom by replacing the sink with a vanity. You may ask yourself, “But don’t they do the same thing?” Yes and no. Although both fixtures are equipped with a basin, a bathroom vanity has additional features and offers your space more convenience. Each vanity is equipped with a wooden cabinet below, often containing one shelf, a stone top, and a sink basin. Some sets, as well, have a matching mirror. Because bathrooms come in all sizes, so do vanities. A larger vanity, in most cases, provides more counter space or is designed with two sinks.
A bathroom vanity goes beyond a practical use and becomes a stylish piece for your space. As several styles are possible, you can find one that blends in with your existing décor. The wood cabinet and stone top have several style possibilities. Designed out of hardwood, the wooden cabinet can have a dark or light finish, with shades ranging from espresso to honey, or for an antique look, the cabinets may be painted white.
The stone, real or synthetic, may blend in or contrast with the finish of the wood. Granite and marble are two popular options, but while granite is consistently a dark color, marble ranges from white with light gray veins to patchwork, with a mottled grey and brown appearance. A white wooden cabinet and a light marble top, for example, give the vanity a uniform appearance. Pairing the white marble with espresso-finished wood gives a sharp contrast.
Aside from a unique appearance, a bathroom vanity is also a practical piece for your space. The wooden cabinet gives your bathroom more storage area. If the space is not equipped with a closet, store towels, cleaning supplies, toiletries, and other items inside. Additionally, vanities are designed with one or two sinks. Double sink vanities are particularly helpful for a single-bathroom living space for three or more people.
