If you're remodelling your bathroom then you've no doubt spent a considerable amount of time deciding on the look and style you'd like to create. Bathrooms may seem like a simple task to complete but they can be deceptively difficult to get right. Unlike many other rooms, bathrooms have relatively few features, so you need to ensure that each element makes an impact in the space.
While bathtubs and showers may seem like the stars of the bathroom, the vanity unit you choose is also an important focal feature of the room. Modern vanities have come a long way from the ubiquitous painted timber or veneer covered units of past decades. Here are two chic, stunning and highly contemporary options that you might like to consider for your bathroom vanity.
1. Wall mounted units
Although it's still possible to get traditional floor mounted vanity units, for a more modern and sleek look in your bathroom a wall mounted unit is a great choice. They are attached to the framework in your bathroom wall and give the appearance of floating elegantly with seamless style.
Wall mounted units come in a range of sizes so you can still opt for one that has plenty of built in storage if it's needed. For smaller bathrooms with a limited amount of space, a wall mounted unit with a narrow profile gives you style and an attractive look without encroaching on the rest of the room.
2. Bench mounted basin
The basin is probably the most commonly used bathroom fixture but it can provide your bathroom with a lot more than simple functionality. Your choice of basin is a great way to give your bathroom some extra luxury and wow factor. A popular and contemporary bench mounted basin will add visual impact and sculptural style to the room.
As the name suggests, bench mounted basin sit directly on top of the vanity unit instead of being set into the surface. They can be round, oval, rectangular or square shaped and come in a variety of materials and colours. They look fantastic when teamed with sleek and simple yet modern tapware.
