Bathroom Vanity Units

1. Open Shelf Freestanding Vanity Units

A freestanding vanity with an open shelf will create an airy feel and provide space for decorative baskets or towels, blending functionality and aesthetics to perfection.

The installation of open shelving is also simple, as complex fittings or alignments aren’t needed.

2. Integrated Lighting Under Wall-Hung Vanity

You can easily install integrated LED lighting underneath a wall-hung vanity.

Depending on the vanity unit you choose, it may take some planning. While the installation is relatively simple for a rectangular-shaped unit, it’s trickier if the vanity is more stylised.

The main advantage of installing integrated LED lighting underneath a wall-hung vanity unit is that it provides safe, reliable night-time lighting.

Under vanity lighting is especially useful if there are young children and older adults in your household.

3. Classic Double Sink Vanity Units

A double-sink vanity unit is designed to fulfil the needs of individual family members, providing each one with separate personal space and storage. It can be a huge time-saver, especially during rush hour.

Since a double-sink vanity unit contains two sinks and provides more counter space compared to a normal single-sink vanity unit, it allows two people to get ready simultaneously.

Bathroom Storage and Cabinets

4. Space-Saving Bathroom Tallboy Storage

A tallboy is the best storage solution to effectively maximise the wall space in your bathroom.

Tallboys are available in an assortment of aesthetically pleasing styles and designs. Since this fixture takes up minimal wall and floor space but provides generous storage, you can use it to eliminate clutter.

5. Mirrored Cabinet as Additional Storage

A mirrored cabinet is typically installed above the sink or vanity unit, offering a fashionable solution to your storage needs.

Most modern mirrored cabinets are multi-functional, as they serve as an all-in-one unit: a mirror, storage cabinet, and light.
