A great way to add a classy look to your bedroom, bathroom, powder room, or hallway is with a vanity. From traditional to contemporary and antique bedroom vanities to one-sink and double-sink bathroom vanities, here’s the 411 on both.
They date back before the Victorian era but this is also a period where vanities were most elaborate. The pieces were created for women as a “sanctuary,” where they could admire themselves in the mirror, apply makeup, jewellery, and “pretty” themselves for the day.
This is why bedroom vanities are also known as make-up vanities and also why many of those on the market are antique-style. Today’s bedroom vanities are used in the same way and are also great design accessories that can really add a touch of glamor to the bedroom.
Classic bedroom vanities are elaborately carved from solid wood, often with curved cabriolet legs, rounded feet, an oval-shaped mirror, and matching stool. More contemporary pieces are a mix of the classic and modern: squared, straight lines in simpler finishes and sometimes use metal. Many bedroom vanities also have drawers for storage of makeup, accessories, jewelry, and etc., and range in size from small and simple to elaborate and wide.
Very often owners are proud of how their homes are presented to their family and friends and they go to trouble to make sure everything is beautiful, in place and representative of who they are.
They pay attention to all aspects of decor in their home, also to the bathroom; some prefer a semi recessed basin above all others. Among many choices for bathrooms, this will often suit a more modern look and feel in the bathroom and is likely to be fitted by those who prefer maximising their bathroom space.
It does not jut out that far to encroach upon space in even small areas, but enough to make vanity space accessible and easy for smaller children to use since the taps are somewhat closer than is the case with other types of basins. This helps to keep the bathroom floors clean since the user does not have to reach far and cause unnecessary splashing.
The semi recessed basin is often favoured by those who like a trendy, modern look and will be found in bathrooms where style, design and look are important. Many owners of homes are very particular about how their homes and every room – also the bathroom – should look. So, to fit in nicely with a contemporary, modern look, this basin is one of the popular options for many.
