How to choose a vanity unit for your bathroom

The bathroom must be both neat and practical, and it is important to have storage to ensure a messy free space. One of the simplest ways you can do this is by adding a vanity unit. Bathroom vanity units available in a fantastic selection of styles and sizes to suit all requirements. They are really useful because they combine a sink with practical storage space underneath, so you can keep toiletries hidden from view.

It is important to choose a vanity unit that meets your storage needs and enhances the design of your bathroom at the same time. So, how do you choose a bathroom vanity unit and what should you consider?

What to consider when choosing a bathroom vanity

One of the most important factors to consider when choosing a new vanity unit is its size. Does your bathroom have plenty of space or is it something it lacks? Will the existing layout accommodate a vanity unit or will you need to design the space to fit into it? But no matter the size of your bathroom, you will have no problem finding a vanity unit that fits.

A vanity unit that is the right size for your bathroom will make the most of space. If you choose one that is too large, the room will feel smaller and cramped, so if you have a small bathroom, choose one that is compact. If you have a large bathroom, you can opt for a double-sink vanity unit, which can recreate a luxury hotel look, plus it will also help ease the rush on lively mornings and put a stop to throwing over the pool.

For small bathrooms and suites, it is best to choose a wardrobe vanity unit or corner compartment to make the best use of limited space. Wall mounted vanity units are excellent for wardrobes and small bathrooms. The wall-mounted design helps create the illusion of a larger room.

Service units come with a cupboard or drawers under the sink, so decide what you prefer when choosing storage for your bathroom. Combination-free devices are another option you may want to consider. A combination of vanity unit includes a matching WC unit and back to wall toilet, which can be placed on either side of the vanity unit or on its own. Combination units are fantastic for creating a coordinated look.

In terms of material, vanity units are usually made of MDF (medium density fiber board), MFC (melamine chipboard) or plywood. MDF is a composite material, usually manufactured in white, while MFC is available in a variety of colors and wood tones such as oak.

Think about how you want your vanity unit to look – do you want it to blend into your existing bathroom fittings or do you want to make a statement? Want something modern or more traditional? Vanity units with a white gloss finish are a popular option, but if you want something more eye-catching, you can think of a light color like red or even black. For a luxurious touch, a wood-efficient finish is perfect.

No matter what vanity you choose, it will give you practical storage space and add an elegant feature to your bathroom as well.
