Choosing the right vanity

Vanities are an essential part of a bathroom. Vanities not only give your bathroom a special look, they are also a good way to make it look bigger and they also give you much-needed storage space for your toiletries, cosmetics, hairdryer, etc. If you’re thinking about installing one yourself or are looking at different styles to find the right one for your home, keep reading this article where we will talk about the different types of vanities. 

Freestanding vanity

A freestanding vanity is a piece of furniture that is not attached to the wall. It can be moved around to accommodate the layout of your bathroom and can also be used in other rooms, such as the kitchen.

The first step in choosing a free-standing vanity is deciding on its size. The overall width of most vanities is about 30 inches, but you’ll want to make sure that it will fit through your doorways before making your purchase. If you’re tight on space, there are smaller versions available—these typically measure between 26 and 28 inches wide and come with either one or two drawers on each side. Another option would be using a corner sink (faucet included) instead: these are slightly smaller than regular basins but offer an attractive alternative if they suit your style better than an ordinary tubular shape does!

Wall-mounted vanity

Wall-mounted vanities are a great option for small bathrooms, as they can be installed on the wall without taking up floor space. They’re often more affordable than freestanding vanities and can be installed in just a few hours.

Vessel sink

A vessel sink is a sink that sits on top of a countertop. They can be made from many different materials, including ceramic, stone, or wood. Vessel sinks are available in many sizes and shapes, including single-bowl or double-basin models. Some vessel sinks have faucets built into them. Others require you to install an additional faucet above the countertop fixture.

A vessel sink can be installed under the countertop or hung from the wall over your vanity area if you prefer to keep your space open while still having easy access to everything you need when getting ready in the morning (or any other time).

Pedestal sink

A pedestal sink is a sink that is mounted on a pedestal. Pedestal sinks are typically used in smaller bathrooms, though they can also be found in some larger rooms. Pedestal sinks are popular in vintage bathrooms because they have been around so long, and many people look for them when they want to restore the original design of their home.

Pedestal sinks can be freestanding or wall-mounted, depending on how you want to use your bathroom space. A freestanding pedestal sink will typically be placed directly against the wall and feature legs stretching down for support (see image above). This type of setup looks best when there’s enough room next to it for someone to lean over while brushing teeth or shaving; otherwise, if no one stands near it, then you run into an issue where people will run into each other while trying to use this kind of setup!

A wall-mounted version looks very similar, except instead of having legs extending downwards like with a stand-alone model, there’s just one column behind which holds up everything else, including faucets/nozzles, etc.

Corner vanity

Corner vanities are ideal for small bathrooms, as they can be placed in the corner of a room to create an entirely new space. This frees up the rest of your bathroom and makes it feel larger. Corner vanities also allow you to hide unsightly plumbing and other fixtures, so if you like clean lines or prefer minimalism, this might be your style choice.

Corner vanities can be installed as a standalone sink or topped with a mirror above it that serves as both the sink and mirror (to save space). Some models come with built-in drawers or cabinets under them for storage purposes, so make sure to research what features are available before making a final decision.

Floating Vanities are a popular choice for contemporary bathrooms.

Floating vanities are a popular choice for contemporary bathrooms. They can be made from wood, metal, or stone and can be installed on the floor, on the wall, or in the corner of the room. Floating vanities are ideal for small bathrooms as there is no need to take up valuable space on your floor with a vanity cabinet. Floating vanities allow you to create an open-concept bathroom which gives you plenty of room to move around and add accessories such as shelving units or towel racks.

The floating vanity allows you to install it where there may need to be more space for a traditional vanity cabinet. The cabinets come with full extension drawers that allow you to store everything from towels to toiletries without leaving them visible from all sides as traditional bathroom cabinets do.

Floating vanities come in different designs, so it’s important when choosing one that suits your needs best that you look at all available options before making your final decision, as they vary widely based on price point, color scheme, and style

Double vanity

A double vanity is a type of vanity that has two sinks, often used in small bathrooms with limited space. A double vanity can also be used in larger bathrooms to give guests their own sink space without removing the main sink area. This is especially useful if you have a large family or plan on having company over often.

Double vanities are popular for master bathrooms because they provide ample storage for toiletries, towels, and other necessities without being too bulky or taking up too much room. If you’re looking for something more modern or contemporary, consider installing two separate sinks on opposite sides of your bathroom layout so that each person has their own private space while still sharing a mirror with one another (which can make getting ready easier).

You can customize your double vanity to suit your needs: add drawers underneath each basin so they work as more than just a place to wash hands; mount them on either side of your bathroom layout (they usually come pre-drilled); designate some extra height at both ends if needed; choose between countertops made out of stone or marble; choose different materials such as stainless steel vs. chrome finishings; etc.
