1. How Do Traditional Bathroom Vanity Units Differ from Modern Style Vanity Units?
Traditional vanity units are meticulously designed to reflect the charm of yesteryears. They feature elaborate woodwork, exquisite hardware, and extravagant finishes, with each one of these elements lending an added touch of sophistication.
These units combine excellent craftsmanship and premium quality materials, adding timeless elegance. The focus is on bringing period-style character to your bathroom space.
Modern style vanity units are, however, different. The major points of emphasis in these units are clean aesthetics, functionality, and minimalism. Hence, these units are built to align with these distinctive features.
Neat surfaces, sleek finishes, and a subtle colour palette – all of them make a clear statement of understated luxury. These vanity units also incorporate modular storage options, motion-detection taps, and integrated lighting, enhancing their functionality and making them perfect for the current busy lifestyle.
2. Why Should I Choose Traditional Vanity Units Over Modern Vanity Units?
The style of the vanity unit you choose will depend on the style of the other bathroom accessories. Regardless of whether you choose a traditional or modern style vanity unit, it needs to complement the current décor.
Consider the style of your shower enclosure, bathtub, radiator, towel rail, etc. If the style of these accessories is predominantly traditional, then a traditional vanity unit would be the right choice for your bathroom.
But if the style leans more towards a minimalist/modern style, then a modern style vanity unit would be the best choice. Hence, it’s imperative that the style of the vanity unit you choose blends nicely with the style of the other bathroom accessories.
A traditional vanity unit with elaborate detailing – such as panelled doors and drawer fronts – is a popular choice for a classic bathroom. However, a modern style vanity unit with orderly lines and minimalistic designs is perfect for a contemporary space.
So, it’s best to choose a traditional vanity unit only when the other elements in your bathroom also lean towards traditional style.
3. Do Traditional Vanity Units Come with Sinks and Taps Included?
Some models of traditional vanity units come with sinks and taps. But in most models, sinks and taps are available as additional optional accessories.
Many models offer different basin options, with variations in basin colour and the number of tap holes. A few models are also available with chrome handles and chrome taps or gold handles and gold taps.
4. Are There Any Integrated Mirrors or Mirror Cabinets for Added Functionality?
Bathroom mirrors are available as additional accessories to traditional vanity units.
The Pelipal 860mm Traditional Basin Unit with Drawers comes with an illuminated mirror cabinet, which is an additional optional accessory.
