Bathroom vanity design

TUESDAYTUTORIAL: Bathroom vanity design!

With so much variety in bathroom vanity design, it can be so easy to get overwhelmed. There are so many styles, materials and extra features that you can end up with an arm-long list that just won’t fit into one vanity unit! Luckily you just need to stick to a few bullet points which will get you the perfect vanity, whether you choose a standard luxury design or opt for a bespoke option to fit exactly into your space. Read on for our top things to think about when designing your bathroom vanity!

1. Decide on your layout. This will vary depending on which bathroom you are designing for. For a shared master bathroom some clients opt for double sinks, but for others space simply won’t allow. A larger bespoke single unit could be the answer, to ensure everyone has enough space without bumping elbows! With a shared space it’s also worth think about individual mirrors or one larger one. You can also choose between having a set area for handwash and lotion, or having dispensers built in.

2. Under or overmounted sink? With an undermount built into your countertop, you will achieve that perfect seamless look. An undermounted sink also looks a little more sleek, with smoother lines, and will not take up additional height. An overmounted sink feels more statement and will leave you able to work with different materials and styles on your countertop. You can also experiment with either deck mounted or wall mounted taps, again depending on how much space is available.

3. What types of storage will you need? One or two deep drawers built into your vanity provide easy visuals and access to your library of bathroom products. You can design bespoke drawers with built in compartments for makeup, toiletries and medicines, or buy separate baskets or inserts to organise your things. You’ll need to make sure any bespoke unit is designed not just aesthetically, but practically around the plumbing requirements of the space.

When choosing to go the bespoke route, many clients opt for hidden plug sockets in their drawers rather than more traditionally set into a mirror. This is so that your toothbrushes, razors and other devices can be stored and charged neatly, not cluttering up your countertop and getting their wires tangled!

You can also choose to go with a floating vanity, which is attached to the wall and leaves the space underneath free. This space can either stay empty and help open up the room, or can house storage boxes or baskets for towels, slippers and other such bathroom bits.
