“A bathroom remodel just wouldn’t be complete without the perfect bathroom vanity,” said Jennifer Earhart, Designer with Callen Construction, Inc. in Muskego. “They deserve more attention in the design/build remodeling world because not only do they offer crucial storage space as well as provide a place for you to get ready for work or an evening out, but from an aesthetic point of view, they help tie a room together,” said Jennifer.
Moreover, bathroom vanities are highly versatile as they come in a broad range of sizes, styles, colors, materials, and shapes,. “The key to selecting the proper bathroom vanity for your space is to incorporate one that not only accommodates the space physically, but also compliments the space’s overall design and style,” Jennifer said.
Known for their multiple textures and wood elements, (often salvaged or reclaimed pieces), rustic style vanities are perfect for those who prefer to live outside of the box. “They offer a distinct look due to their old-fashioned aesthetic and can be fitted with any wood finish of your choosing,” she said. This allows for the seamless integrating of a rustic vanity into a new or existing space, regardless of whether the home style is a farmhouse or a contemporary style. “In addition to being a statement piece and exceptionally adaptive, rustic style vanities are also built with quality, resulting in long life expectancies,” said Jennifer. “This ensures they can be enjoyed for many years to come.”
If you fancy modern design, a contemporary bathroom vanity is often viewed as an ideal choice. “Modern and minimalism often go hand-in-hand, so it’s no secret that contemporary bathroom vanities are known for their simplicity as they typically consist of clean, straight lines and basic, yet sophisticated hardware, usually made of stainless steel,” Jennifer said. Contemporary vanities also prioritize the efficiency of the space, so they tend to maximize storage space and can even make a room appear larger than it is. “Additionally, you’ll often see contemporary bathroom vanities comprised of metal or natural elements, such as wood or stone. When you walk into a modern bathroom that features a contemporary vanity, chances are you’ll be greeted by an elegant, cultured atmosphere,” she said.
If you’re looking to remodel a smaller bathroom and space is a primary concern, corner vanities are a popular solution, as where they lack in counter space and storage room, they make up for in charm. “From the materials used, to the faucet handles and mirror shape, you can have a corner vanity custom-built to match any style you envision,” said Jennifer. “Whether it’s rustic, contemporary, or something in between, corner vanities often consist of a small counter space, a sink and faucet, a mirror, and cabinetry located below the sink that generally houses the plumbing. This simple construction serves every need a larger vanity would while making cleanup a snap. Not to mention, their small size provides the freedom to fill the room with other elements you may not have considered otherwise.”
Bathroom vanities are functional in the sense they serve many purposes, but they can also be expressive and creative. With so many options, from style and sizes to hardware selections and more, there are no limitations when it comes to creating a custom bathroom vanity for your next remodel. “Whether you’re in search of a vanity that will enhance your existing space or are in desperate need of a whole new concept, bathroom vanities are a versatile addition that allow you to create a memorable focal point of the room,” Jennifer said.
