Balancing Aesthetics and Functionality in Bathroom Vanities

April 16, 2019

Not surprising, bathroom vanities are considered an essential part of any bathroom. They usually house the basic toiletry essentials that make a bathroom the perfect place to unwind after a long day of work. However, there are many bathroom vanities that are often just there for show.

These types of vanities lack the necessary element of practical functionality, although inexpensive and aesthetically appealing, it makes investing in them not seem worthwhile. If you are torn between aesthetics and practicality, then why not consider combining the best aspects of both types?

Here are some great ways to merge beauty and function for your bathroom vanity:

• Fittings do wonders – if you want to focus on the functionality of a bathroom vanity, but don’t want to fall short of its practical applications, then brass, nickel-silver, or gilt fittings can make even the simplest looking vanity cabinet or drawer look absolutely elegant.

Complimentary fittings can be mixed with practical ones, in that you can have brass or plated chrome faucets on your vanity basin, which matches the rest of your vanity’s knobs or its edging trim.

• Refurbishing antiques – antique dressers or drawers can be refurbished into wonderful bathroom vanities. Not only are they affordable and durable, but they can also add an extra touch of elegance to your bathroom. Refurbishing second-hand vanities, drawers, and chests, and converting them into bathroom vanities, will help you save money and deliver a stylish and original setup to boot.

• Incorporate found items and salvageable material – with a little imagination and professional assistance from an expert cabinetmaker, something as simple as a slab of marble or stone slab can be effectively incorporated into your bathroom vanity. Durable, low-maintenance, and absolutely elegant, a mix-and-match appeal adds a one-of-a-kind allure to your bathroom vanity that will appeal to everyone.

• Plan out storage and organisation – most vanities are simply drawers where you can conveniently place things in, which make it easy to store and find things again when needed. A truly functional, practical, and beautiful bathroom vanity is something that should also be functional, allowing you to store, organise, and easily locate essential items like toiletries and accessories.

It is advised to plan out your bathroom vanity to have specialised drawers for both perishable and non-perishable toiletries, as well as space enough to store extra towels, bathrobes, and other bathroom essentials.
