Single sink vanity designs are the most common sink setup and can be the easiest to improve. In most homes, a single bathroom vanity is a primary spot where people see every morning and every evening. But when it comes time to get a new vanity, it can be a little daunting to figure out exactly what options you need for a smaller one-sink space. Here are a few thoughts to keep in mind when shopping for a bathroom vanity.
Great Options for Mounting Or Standing Fixtures
For a single sink vanity, there are three main types of ways to set the fixture. Free standing mounts usually are not connected to the wall, but rather sit on legs or on panels on the floor. These allow for greater customizations as well as minimized drilling or other construction aspects. Then there are floating or wall-mounted vanities. These are bolted or anchored to the wall but have the added benefits of more storage space underneath, inside and more stability when anchored to the wall. Finally, there are corner mounts. Fit to sit neatly and snugly in the corner of the room, these maximize your bathroom’s usable space while providing an excellent vanity piece in both function and display.
Changing a Vanity Design
If you decide you’d rather get a more modern single sink bathroom vanity, there are always the options to replace a free-standing vanity with a corner or mounted vanity. Many stores and retailers will offer design guides to let you know exactly what the setup will cost and how it will affect the internal and external appearance and function of the piece as a whole. Keep in mind wall-mounted fixtures, while more stable and with more storage, will also need un-mounted if you move or decide to replace it, which may have a slightly higher cost if the wall needs work done to it.
Online Deals Can Send Gorgeous Pieces to Your Door
Many online stores such as Amazon, Wayfair or Overstock keep modern and classic designs of vanities in stock for fast shipping right to your home. In addition to a large assortment of materials, they also offer bonuses such as free or expedited shipping as well as sales going on all the time. In many cases, a vanity that was over a thousand dollars can be brought down by half or more and if they are having a clearance, the savings can be even greater.
Plan Ahead for Maximized Space Use
For single sink bathroom vanities, getting a layout of that part of the bathroom can save a lot of time and money down the line. Finding out where all the drains and pipes are connected, and where the wall mounts can be anchored securely can save a piece from being broken or a water accident from damaging your new vanity set. If in doubt, research something that looks unfamiliar. An experienced opinion now can avoid a disaster later.
Even for single-sink setups, gorgeous options for a vanity are well within reach.
