Choosing Bathroom Vanities- Top 3 Most Common Mistakes
For a bathroom to be fully functional, bathroom vanities may be added. But be careful when you are choosing which bathroom vanity set to place in your own bathroom. There are errors that will spell the difference between an appropriate cabinet and an unsuitable one.
Wrong type. This is the first error that you should avoid. Many buy their bathroom vanity sets because they are cheap or look cute. But you have to remember that this furniture will not stand alone in your bathroom. There are other fixtures and there are other parts of the bathroom that it should complement well for it to be considered a good part of the room.
This can be attributed to the color and material used. You can have a bathroom that is made from wood with subdued lighting fixtures. But if your vanity set is made from metal and it is painted with enamel, this will ruin the design that you have already created with the wall, the floor, or your bathroom stall.
Also, the functionality of your vanity set can be defeated if it does not have the right number of sinks. Although this is not really a prerequisite to your purchase, having two sinks when two people are using the vanity set will help. And it is very practical. You will be able to save a lot of time. However, if you have a set that has two sinks but only you are using that furniture, the purpose is very much defeated.
Wrong size. There can be a mistake in the size of the vanity when it is not appropriate to the size of the bathroom. If you have a large bathroom, it will follow that your vanity set is large as well. When your bathroom is small, the furniture will look nicer if it is small-sized as well. The right proportions will make it better to look at. A big vanity in a small room will seem to take all of the space in the room. At the same time, a very small one in a sizable room will look dwarfed.
Size can also be an issue related to the use of the vanity. If do your make up in front of your vanity set and you use a lot of products, it will be beneficial if you have a large vanity. This will give you more space to work with. A family composed of several members can also benefit from a large set as there will be enough space even if several members use it at the same time.
Poor quality. Many people consider the price of the product. This is okay. However, if you overlook the quality of the product just because it is sold at a very low price, you will end up paying more in the end. Remember that vanity sets are placed inside the bathroom where humidity is usually high. So, you would want your vanity set to be as sturdy as possible. Make sure that the product that you will choose is reasonably priced based on its quality and durability.
