A vanity area in your bathroom is quite a significant spot where you dress up yourself. It should not only be clutter-free, but also imbue a sense of style that reflects your personality. While traditional vanity areas look elegant and sophisticated, they tend to consume a large chunk of precious area, which could otherwise be used for storage or simply for highlighting the tile work under the vanity unit. Apart from these, there are many more reasons why homeowners prefer having a floating bathroom vanity. In this blog, we will explore some reasons to add a floating vanity to your bathroom.
So, let’s get started.
Reasons to Add a Floating Vanity to Your Bathroom
Wall-mounted bathroom vanities have suddenly gained popularity because of their supreme design and extra functionality. Floating bathroom vanities are no longer considered modern and contemporary, but they have slowly crept into the traditional set up and are now believed to be a transitional design element in a bathroom. A floating vanity unit in your bathroom instantly creates more space, especially if you have a small bathroom, reflecting an unfussy, minimalist style statement. Check out these top 6 reasons for having a floating vanity area in your bathroom.
Creates more space
If you are looking for ways to make your small bathroom look bigger, then simply change the traditional vanity unit into a floating one. You don’t need to display a bulky cabinet or shelves in your dresser that goes all the way down to the floor, blocking the expansive view. A continuous floor surface makes a bathroom appear airy and bright.
This is ideal for small bathrooms where you are desperately looking for every square inch of the space. A lot of precious area gets wasted in the cabinet of your traditional vanity. Go for a single colour on the walls and the floor so that your floating vanity blends in with the rest, mimicking a larger bathroom than it already is.
Adds more storage space
The extra free space under a wall-mounted vanity opens up avenues for handy storage and interesting décor. It gives you the opportunity to showcase attractive toiletries, hand towels and flower pots.
The open shelving provides easy access to toiletries while allowing you to display your creative self and flaunt your collection of seashells, bonsai plants and other bathroom accessories and décor items that you love.
Traditional vanity units usually have closed shelves that can become a breeding ground for insects and other house pests. Moreover, it becomes quite difficult to clean. You will have to take out the entire contents of the cabinet, before you wipe down the surface clean. On the other hand, with a floating vanity you can easily mop or wash the floor beneath the vanity. The open shelving allows easy access for deep cleaning.
For those who are obsessed with hygiene and cleanliness, a floating bathroom vanity is an ideal choice.
Use your creative side
There is no particular design for a floating vanity unit. You can be as creative as you like with the installation. Add as many compartments and sections that the space allows you. Think about how the vanity area will contribute to the overall bathroom design. If you have a beach style bathroom, then the walls and vanity should be of a blue colour. You can have a seashell shaped sink and an open shelf displaying attractive pearl shaped soap dishes and other toiletries. You can even paint the backsplash a deeper shade of blue to resemble ocean waves.
Good for internal heating systems
One of the pros of adding a floating vanity to your bathroom is that it is great for floor heating systems. You don’t have to worry about the heat damaging your cabinets, which is likely the case with traditional vanities. Enjoy a warm floor under your feet while you wash your face at the sink or dress up near the vanity during the cold winter season.
Promotes minimalistic décor
A minimalist bathroom design promotes neutral colours, clean outlook and an uncluttered, muted décor. If you like to keep things simple and less overwhelming then go for a vanity area that doesn’t stick to the floor.
Walking into a bathroom that is roomy, neat, airy and exhibits an uncluttered styling brings a sense of calm that you usually find in a luxurious spa. How about having an inviting, welcoming atmosphere in your bathroom with a floating bathroom vanity that is simple, yet appealing in its own way. Moreover, you can create a wow factor by using appropriate lighting above the vanity that highlights the sink and the faucet.
We hope these reasons to add a floating vanity to your bathroom will help you make an informed decision. You might also want to take a look at these ways to maximise a bathroom space. In the meantime, check out these useful guides on:
