Types of vanities
Integrated vanity and basin units: A vanity unit with an integrated basin will take the guesswork out of matching a suitable basin and vanity. You can be sure that the basin will fit and that the cabinet will have the correct provisions for the basin’s plumbing.
- Standalone vanities: You can also choose a standalone vanity that goes under a pre-mounted sink. The LILLÅNGEN / TYNGEN wash-basin base cabinet fits under the basin and has space for the plumbing to pass through.
- Wall-mounted vanities: If you want the floor under the basin unobstructed, you can choose a wall-mounted vanity or a vanity with legs that raises it off the floor.
- Closed or open: Some vanities have cabinets enclosed by doors that keep your storage out of sight. Other models such as the VILTO wash-stand and the RÅGRUND / TYNGEN wash-basin/corner shelf have open shelving. Select the design that suits your needs best. Open designs are easy to access but need a little more effort to keep tidy and presentable.
- Counter space: Your vanity design determines the amount of counter space that you will have. If you use shelves for your toiletries and do not need counter space, choose a unit that holds only the sink with no counter space. If you prefer to place all your stuff next to the sink, pick a vanity that has ample room.
Choosing the right vanity
Adding a vanity to your bathroom enhances the looks and storage of the bathroom. Choosing the right vanity cabinet is essential to get the best results. Here are some tips for choosing a vanity for your bathroom:
- Scale: Pick a vanity that matches the scale and proportions of your bathroom. A small sink will look better with a proportionally small vanity.
- The number of sinks: Evaluate how many sinks you will need for your bathroom before purchasing the bathroom vanity units. For two sinks, you can either select a pair of individual vanities or a vanity that will accommodate two sinks.
- Faucet: Check if the basin faucet will be fitted inside or outside the sink. If the faucet is outside the sink, the vanity should have a hole provided for it.
- Material: A bathroom is a humid room that is prone to temperature changes. Select a vanity that has been designed for the bathroom environment. This will ensure the life and durability of the vanity.
- Plumbing: Double check if the selected vanity will require you to change the sink’s plumbing. A vanity that fits in easily with your plumbing will save you time and money.
- Traffic: Ensure that the vanity will not affect the traffic pattern in the bathroom. This is especially important in a smaller bathroom where a couple of inches makes all the difference. Check if opening the doors make it impossible to move in and out of the space. If so, you will have to shut and reopen the doors every time you get more laundered towels to replace in the vanity.
- Maintenance: The vanity should not make that area of the bathroom impossible to clean and maintain. The vanity itself should be easy to clean. A vanity with a built-in backsplash protects the wall behind it.
- Storage: Choose a vanity that is suitable for your storage needs. It is better to have a fully stocked vanity than to have a half-empty vanity taking up valuable space.
- Measure: Before you select a vanity, measure the bathroom under-sink area accurately.
Things that you can (and cannot) store under the bathroom sink
A bathroom is a room prone to extreme temperature changes and humidity. Certain items that most people store in their bathroom vanities should be stored outside the bathroom.
- Cleaning supplies: A vanity is an excellent place to store bathroom cleaning supplies within easy reach and out of sight.
- Toiletries: You can store infrequently used toiletries under the bathroom cabinet.
- Large shampoo and bodywash bottles: Using small matching dispensers for liquid toiletries is a good idea. You can store the larger bottles in the vanity cabinet to easily refill the dispensers.
- Toilet paper: Toilet paper in bulk is better stored in a less humid room. You can keep a couple of extra rolls in the bathroom.
