bath_play - THE BEAUTY OF FLOATING VANITIES / by Annabelle Guldner

Today we are looking at floating vanities and the advantages and disadvantages they bring with them. We love the look of the floating vanities. As you can see from the examples the blonde wood look is in style and helps to instill some warmth to the neutral and bright spaces. In a small bathroom the most important thing to introduce is storage without creating clutter. You might think in those instances floating vanities don’t make any sense since you lose storage space. We think differently; floating vanities offer great storage capacity with large drawers that wrap around plumbing pipes. This makes it possible to utilize the top drawer space with a second large and deep drawers underneath. The use of vessel sinks clears up additional space and they are a great look for these vanities. Of course there are many more storage options with open shelving, baskets, etc but the takeaway is that storage is available.

The main positive aspect for a floating vanity in a smaller bathroom is the sense of openness and spacious feel it creates. The gap underneath the vanity creates negative spaces that give the illusion of more square footage. The floating effect also contributes to an overall perception of a larger and more generous area. Large mirrors, or wall tile from floor to ceiling give the impression of higher ceilings and a beautiful perception of space. Accent lighting helps to emphasize the floating effect a creates a nice indirect and soft lighting condition.

These type of vanities makes cleaning easy and offer additional floor space for baskets, shelves, or for little step stool for kids! Not just fitting for a small bathroom, even in large spaces floating vanities really update your look and create a unique alternative to the standard vanities. Create an airy, updated and fun atmosphere in your bathroom, that’s functional and timeless!
