Most people want a bathroom that is functional and in style. An easy way to accomplish this is to add a vanity unit to the bathroom. There are many styles and designs to choose from. Choose a style you like and let it be the theme for the entire bathroom. There are contemporary designs and antique designs, the one you choose is a matter of taste. The bigger the bathroom area you have the more choice you have.
With smaller bathrooms the choices are more limited and you need to be careful to pick the right pieces. Also you should not get vanity accessories that take up too much of the available space. Doing so will congest your bathroom and make it less functional. The better choice is a contemporary vanity that fits the confined space that is available.
Always keep the bathroom space in mind when picking the vanity, this will ensure you get the right size. Realize that having a lot of items in the bathroom will give it a cluttered and unflattering look. You really should only have essential items in the bathroom; everything else takes away from the limited space available.
If the space is available and the budget is large enough go for small vanities and basins. This way you can have a basin and storage for toiletry items. This is a practical way to go because it allows you to be more organized in the bathroom. If there is not sufficient space to add a vanity, try for a corner piece instead. This will give you a more efficient use of the space and allow storage and a basin. Often corners go unused when they could effectively be used more efficiently in order to make best use of the space available.
It is always important to plan to use space efficiently, keep this in mind when planning for the type and design of the new bathroom vanity. The efficient use of space also includes being able to organize your items to make the bathroom more functional. Pick a vanity that includes as much storage space as possible, to ensure that you keep items to hand but also prevent them from cluttering up the bathroom.
The vanity should have shelves for towels, wash cloths and robes. Some vanities will have two shelves whereas others may just have one, work out what you actually need to fit in the vanity to make sure that you have the right sort of shelving in which to store the items you need in the vanity. Be careful not to use this space for junk items that are sometimes accumulated in cupboards under sinks. If this is allowed to happen the bathroom will be far less functional than it could be. Throw the junk away instead of storing it.
The next thing to consider is the finish you want for the vanity unit, and the overall design. Many vanity units come with a white finish and are designed to go with a modern bathroom, but oak and other wood effects and finishes are available and it is possible to get vanities that look more rustic and antique if that fits in better with the overall design of the bathroom.
