Why we love it!

We love using furniture style vanity units in bathroom designs because they are a stylish and elegant freestanding unit. The main reason we often suggest furniture style vanity units to our clients is because of their practical design elements. Many of them have integrated drawers and cupboards for storing toiletries and towels. You can personalize the hardware to match other finishes in the room to create a cohesive feel.

How to use it… 

Luckily, there are a wide variety of designs and finishes to choose from to suit all of your bathroom design needs. From painted, finished wood veneer and glossy finishes there is something for every style of bathroom interior! You can use these furniture style bathroom vanity units in your main bathrooms and they are fantastic for smaller spaces like powder rooms too.

You will need to get a trusted plumber on board to install the pipework element of the unit too.

What to watch out for…

There are some considerations to take into account when considering a furniture style bathroom vanity in your home.

Although these units are freestanding, they still need to be connected to plumbing and the wall for stability and structure. If you’re purchasing a unit from an online retailer, you may need to modify the unit for your space and plumbing needs. To avoid this you can get a custom-made vanity unit from a local cabinet maker. The open bottom design of some furniture style vanities will also require additional cleaning to the flooring below.

While these points are not necessarily deal-breakers, they are worth taking into account before purchasing a freestanding vanity unit for your bathroom.

Ways to make this trend last in your home…

Furniture style bathroom vanity units can last a lifetime if chosen and installed correctly.

If you’re looking for a permanent vanity for many years, opt for an elegantly designed unit with complimentary finishes to the rest of the bathroom design. Alternatively – be bold and brave with a statement color for the main unit (this can always be updated and repainted if you change your mind in a few years) and neutral countertop.
