A bathroom or washroom generally is a small room, usually in a residence or other residential structure, which has either a shower or an actual bath. The addition of a large wash basin, however, is fairly commonplace. A large bath or shower combined with a large bath tub, vanity unit, vanities, cabinets and/or open shelves, creates the ideal space for a bathroom vanity. In this article I’ll give you just a few ideas on how to choose what sort of bathroom furniture to put into your bathroom.
Bathroom vanities are basically a cabinet/urn containing the sink, toilet, and lavatory. Vanities may be framed, stand-alone, semi-framed, or built-in. You can mix and match the various styles and fixtures from various manufacturers. Here are some tips to keep in mind when choosing and installing a new bathroom vanity.
When it comes to choosing what kind of sink and toilet fixture to put into your bathroom, you should first consider how much room you have for them. If you have an unusually large bathroom, say for instance an elongated room that is long on all sides, you’ll have to realize that having two sinks and two toilets can create a rather cramped looking area. This is the reason why full bathrooms are generally the best for these kinds of fixtures. You can also opt for a pedestal sink, as it can help you achieve a modern look, and will fit nicely into a corner.
Now if you’re planning on installing a new shower, bathtub, or vanity cabinet, it’s highly recommended that you use something that matches the rest of your bathroom. For example, if you have white walls, try to use a white sink or toilet fixture. On the other hand, if you have gray walls, then go for something that goes with gray. Although it might not look so good in a full bathroom, you’ll be surprised how much better a grey piece looks in a smaller room.
A major thing that you should take note when it comes to dressing for a full bathroom is the fact that you’ll have to sacrifice an aesthetic appeal in favor of practicality. For instance, you have to make sure that your sink and toilet match up with your shower head, or else you risk a very unhygienic setup. You also have to be sure that the color of your tiles matches the rest of your house. If the tiles you have are too light, they’ll stand out like a sore thumb against your tile ensemble. On the other hand, if they contrast too much with the colors of your house, then they will take away from the overall effect of the room.
Finally, when it comes to fitting the toilet and sink into a two separate bathroom, there are a few things you need to take note of. First, if your toilet doesn’t fit through the sink with ease, then you’ll want to add a hole in the drain before putting the toilet in the sink. Furthermore, in order for the drain to run properly, you need to use a tub or shower door rather than a regular door. Finally, the shower curtain needs to be cut to match the opening in the sink, and if you’re using two separate enclosures, then the shower curtain needs to be cut to match the opening in the toilet.
