What is a Floating Vanity?

A floating bathroom vanity is installed on the wall, well above the floor, with no legs or extensions to touch the floor. As the name suggests, it essentially floats on the wall. These vanities are available in all sizes, several styles, and different finishes and materials, just like traditional vanity cabinets. They also include specialty hardware and are best installed by professionals to ensure they are anchored correctly.

When done well, floating vanities can add a unique style and free up floor space, giving you more for your money than you might have anticipated.

Why Should You Consider a Floating Vanity?

Floating vanities offer several pros and cons. First, they are stylish and come in several finishes to accent any modern bathroom design. They are also more affordable than some people realize, and they can free up floor space, as mentioned. These vanities will be a bit more costly than a traditional vanity, but they add more value to the space in most cases and offer more function for the people who choose them.

Some people worry about the sturdiness of these vanities since they are only anchored to the wall. However, they are installed with the right hardware and a unique installation process to ensure the cabinet is safely anchored to the wall. Overall, floating vanities are a great way to give the illusion of more space while embracing a style trend for the modern bathroom you’ve always dreamed about.
