The newest design trend in bathrooms is hard to ignore. Floating vanities are everywhere and everyone is talking about them. This is one trend, however, that is most definitely not for everyone. Fitting for only sleek and modern design, these vanities are not ideal for the traditional home.
To lay down a foundation for the hottest item in bathroom décor, we’ll let the pros and cons tell us whether these vanities are worth all the hype.
You can’t deny that these vanities give an illusion of space in the bathrooms they occupy. By doing away with any boundaries on the floor, the room seems so much bigger. Since floating vanities are lifted off the floor, more light is able to pass underneath them tricking the eye to think there is more floor space. Just think how much roomier it would seem if undermount lights were installed to the bottom of these vanities. Lifting the vanities off the floor also allows for easier clean up, which makes cleaning and sanitizing a bathroom much more efficient.
Like mentioned before, these vanities are ideal for modern designs. If that is your style, then you should consider these floating vanities in your next bathroom remodel. The chic and streamlined design will accentuate the no fuss, no clutter feel that modern styles cater to.
With the pros considered, let’s look at the cons. Obviously the vanity’s sleek design compromises on storage, which for many is a huge negative. If your vanity is the only storage for your bathroom, floating vanities may not be for you. Construction wise, these vanities have to be carefully mounted, which isn’t much of a concern with your typical vanity. Another concern to consider is the “trend” factor of these vanities. Our gut tells us though, that this style will remain around for years.
