Bathroom vanity units are an ideal piece of furniture to add to every bathroom. Bathroom vanity units are a cabinet that also incorporates the bathroom wash hand basin. The base cupboard also hides all the pipework and plumbing from view, which you don't get with a pedestal basin. They also add a great deal of very useful storage space to your bathroom. This is important as most bathrooms are short of storage space leading to cluttered untidy bathrooms.
With a bathroom vanity unit increasing this storage space your bathroom will look fresh, inviting, and uncluttered.
Most bathroom vanity units have several cupboards and at least a couple of drawers, the drawers are useful for small items like cosmetics and the cupboards can store some essential cleaning products and spare toilet rolls amongst other things. There are many sizes of bathroom vanity units available, so there will be one to fit even the smallest cloakroom or ensuite shower room. If you have space a double basin bathroom vanity unit would be ideal so you can have a basin each, saving time for speedy mornings.
What is a Vanity Unit?
A vanity unit is a great storage solution for bathrooms where space is limited or busy bathrooms such as family bathrooms. This is because you can keep your bathroom essentials and bathroom cleaning products within easy reach but out of sight.
A vanity unit is also great in larger bathrooms as they feature as a statement centrepiece and provide a strong visual impact.
The cupboard part of a vanity unit almost acts as a pedestal for a basin as they hide any unsightly plumbing and pipework. The pipework can be easily accessed however.
