When designing a new bathroom or redesigning a new bathroom it is wise to look at contemporary bathroom vanities in order to get the best results from your project. There are many design themes you can take, such as antique or ultra-modern. I like ultra-modern designs which use a lot of glass and bowls made out of glass or carved out of lumps of granite or marble.
It is important to get the vanity units right in order to complement and match the faucets, and other bathroom accessories. However, a lot of people prefer traditional with the widespread use of wood. In fact, some contemporary designs use exotic wood cuts in unusual ways to give amazing effects. Indeed, I recently came across a sink that had been carved out of myrtle burl.
The wood had been finished to a high sheen satin effect which produced this incredible shimmering bird’s eye effect. Whatever your preference, keeping to a more up-to-date modern design will keep your bathroom looking new and will be a better investment in the long run.
Are Contemporary Bathroom Vanities Expensive?
The quick answer, especially, if you go around many expos, show homes, or modern stores is yes, quite probably. However, they needn’t be at all if you know how to go about doing your research and looking for the best bargains. You can still get a great-looking, quality bathroom by spending a lot less.
It is still a good idea to visit the various stores and shows to get ideas. What I like to do next is go online and enter the names of manufacturers or styles that I like. Online distributors and manufacturers often have the same vanity cabinets at cheaper prices or equivalent styles for a lot less money. You will often see a greater range and even more ideas for your design project. Vanity Units can then be delivered to your house directly.
Also, it is worth considering units that require assembly and which often come flat-packed. These can save you considerable amounts and all it will cost you is a little extra time to assemble without the need for complicated or expensive tools. Usually, just a screwdriver is all that is needed.
Tips On Contemporary Bathroom Design
A bathroom may take on various designs depending on who is remodeling it, the economic status of the person wishing to have the design done, and the average number of users of the room. Of course, one of the most important factors that will be the deciding factor in the design of the bathroom will be the tastes of the users. The following gives useful tips on how to get the best results from your next bathroom project.
There are a few areas to perform given activities while one is in the bathroom. It is vital to fully consider these different areas or zones when designing the room. Problems such as less room allocated for a shower than the toilet area can arise if not fully considered.
Location of the bathroom
The bathroom should, ideally, not be positioned too far away from the bedrooms. In fact, the bedroom, dressing area, and bathroom should be in close proximity to each other in an optimal bathroom design. Nowadays modern homes take this further by installing an en-suite bathroom.
Make the bathroom comfortable
Comfort is extremely important as the bathroom is one of the most often-used rooms in the house. The comfort can be determined by issues such as flooring, soft furnishings, and heating. These are all vital considerations in the design stage.
The bathroom should reflect your taste
Your bathroom should not only be redesigned for the sake of it. It says a lot about your style and personality. If you appreciate nature, then let that be reflected in the bathroom.
The fixtures and fittings must be compatible
The kind of things that you install in your bathroom should be matching. Matching the items, such as the bathroom vanities are important in achieving a good look. That means that the colors must be well-coordinated so that there is no clash. Seeking advice from an interior designer will often avoid such problems. You must ensure that necessary measures are taken to reflect modern taste.
Involving all the people using the bathroom is important in your bathroom remodeling project. It is often advisable that you consult widely to get a number of ideas for your project.
Glass Bathroom Vanities
As mentioned earlier, I am a big fan of glass bathroom vanities, which may be a good theme for a future hub. The only problem is that they can be on the expensive side and need to be kept fastidiously clean. This is a particular issue if you live in an area with hard water where water and calcium deposits can soon become visible if the limescale is not regularly removed. This video shows some of the latest modern bathroom vanities which are outstanding.
