One of the biggest bathroom remodel trends recently has been floating vanities. These wall-mounted vanities can serve as a minimalist design statement, but they’re much more than that. There are now floating vanities in many different styles, and there are benefits of moving the fixtures off the floor.
Here are some reasons why you might want to consider floating vanities for your bathroom remodel.
One of the best things about floating vanities is that they are more customizable than ground-based fixtures. For example, they can be made to a certain width and depth to fit your desired aesthetic and required amount of counter space. They can also be installed at any height, whereas ground-based vanities are usually made to accommodate a standard or average height.
Another customization benefit with floating vanities is that they can take up less space. This means that they might be a better fit for a smaller space, but they can also enhance the feeling of spaciousness if a small vanity is installed in a larger space. They can be made to include as much or as little storage space as you need.
Make good use of the space
Floating vanities can really open up your bathroom space and make it appear more spacious. One way this is accomplished is thanks to the space underneath the vanity being open, which leads the eye toward the wall behind it, even if it’s not visible. It’s a neat psychological trick that is enhanced when the vanity is made of monochromatic colors to look like a natural extension of the wall.
Easier to clean
Another benefit of floating vanities is that they are easier to clean. Gone are those hard-to-reach corners on the sides of the vanity. Keeping the bottom of the cabinets off the ground level will also help cut down on the amount of dust and debris from the ground getting into the cabinet, making the interior easier to clean as well.
Have you ever experienced a radiant heated floor? In a bathroom, this can be a real luxury. A hard stone or tile floor with radiant heating underneath can make every day feel like a spa day, even if you’re just doing the basics to get ready for work. But if you have a ground-based vanity, you’re losing a significant portion of that wonderfully heated floor space to the fixture.
This is not the case with floating vanities. If you’re considering installing radiant heat in your bathroom (or if you already have this feature), you should definitely consider a floating vanity. This type of fixture will allow for the maximum amount of floor space to be used for your glorious radiant heating system.
Floating vanities can be a great addition to an existing bathroom as well as a key part of a total bathroom makeover.
