How a custom vanity can add style and value to your bathroom

How a custom vanity can add style and value to your bathroom

Updating your old vanity with a new, custom vanity will do wonders to the overall look of your bathroom. It will give the space a fresh rejuvenated look, and make it more enjoyable to use.

The bonus is, you can modify custom vanities down the track as trends change. This means in a year or so as styles change, instead of your vanity looking out of date, you can make simple, easy modifications to keep it current. You're always one step ahead of the game.

Your vanity will always look like you just bought it. There are a few things to consider to achieve this, and the first is the colour.

Modifications you can make with a custom vanity

Fashions change at the drop of a hat. One day matte black is all the rage, then it's earthy browns. All of a sudden, light pastels are in vogue. The colour that never seems to go out of fashion is white.

White is loved for many reasons. It makes the space feel cool, clean, hygienic and bright. By choosing a custom vanity that is white, you can pretty much guarantee that you'll never have to change the colour to remain current.

Being a customisable vanity means at any time you can change the:

  • Door styles
  • Drawer styles
  • Handles

The one problem with a lot of custom vanities is the basins are under bench style, which means they are generally there to stay. It would be rare to find one where you can change the under bench basin without a lot of effort and messing around.

You might think this is fine and you don't need to change it. But basin styles change. Curves that were fashionable make way for squares and ovals and the like. It's not hard for your basin to start looking dated. An above counter basin could be the solution.


With an above counter basin, you can change the bowl as trends change

Imagine after finishing your bathroom makeover, having a delightful contemporary bathroom you dreamed of, complete with stunning vanity with it's fabulous above counter bowl. Beautiful.

Slowly over the next year or so, designs will change and what was in when you created your bathroom look, will most likely become outdated, but will this worry you?

Let’s say someone buys a fashionable solid square counter basin that's all the rage. A year later, that sharp square look has made way for a new rounded one with slimline edges. Suddenly, their basin is out of date.

That won’t be a problem for you. You can replace the outdated square chunky one with a new round slimline design. It's easy and takes virtually no effort.

A major benefit of having an above counter basin ensures your vanity always looks current.

The minimalist bathroom vanity never goes out of style

Clutter is out, and has never been in style anyway. Clean, uncluttered bathrooms look more spacious and stylish. This minimalist look is going to be around for a long time, if not here to stay. You can make a statement of stylishness and luxury. It's clean, appealing to the eye and easy to maintain.

If you don't need the storage space, you can achieve this wonderful minimalist look with a simple wall mounted bench and above counter basin as your vanity unit.

Once again, the simple bench and bowl design means the bowl can be easily changed whenever you want to keep up with current trends. You can even change the bench easily if you want to. It's a versatile vanity style that requires minimal effort to keep current.
