Bath vanities are an important part of any bathroom design and come in many different styles. The decorating trends for bathrooms are endless, and the options for choosing a bathroom vanity are varied. Add to it that all of us tend to get caught in a decorating rut and these facts can make the decision difficult. So when deciding on a vanity, don’t be afraid to consider something new and daring within your favorite bathroom makeover and design style.
Just because the style is categorized as traditional doesn’t mean it can’t be fresh. Whether it’s painted wood with a laminate top, or stained wood with granite, colors make a statement. Keep the traditional style, but go out on a limb with color.
This style is defined by clean lines and minimal accessories. But clean doesn’t have to mean dull. Translate boring into bang with unusual accessories. Look for items that tell personal stories or a single statement piece that pops with style.
It’s easy to go overboard when mixing styles and materials and that’s what this kind of design is all about. To cut out unnecessary clutter, keep in mind a theme, whether it’s color or something else, and this style can move from busy to intriguing.
Of course these aren’t the only design styles, but they are the basics. It’s easy to translate these three to all the other styles.
It’s also important to keep materials in mind when making your choice. Obviously a vanity with a laminate countertop will be less expensive than marble, but price points will vary even within a specific category. The key to finding the best option at the best price is research. Start the search on the Internet, but don’t skip talking to the experts. They have valuable insights on installation and durability.
Finally, when it comes to choosing bathroom vanities keep longevity in mind. Picking something that resonates with your lifestyle and using the accessories to freshen it up from year to year is always good advice, but particularly so in this economy.
Even if you’re working within a tight budget, price doesn’t have to be the dictator when it comes to eye catching style. Don’t be afraid of an investment piece for your vanity, it may make good sense when you consider the length of time you’ll be enjoying it. Remember, budget constraints don’t have to limit your vanity options to dull and boring. It may be necessary to work a little harder when the price points are lower, but the hunt is worth it.
