The History of Vanities
What is a vanity and where did it come from? Vanities are comprised of three main components that make up the full unit. This is typically a sink, countertop, and a mirror, along with additional storage space. Many modern vanities have more added components such as lights, shelving etc. These three basic elements are the starting point for any vanity unit. The design of the vanity will highly impact its functionality and overall look in a bathroom space and is a major aspect that should be considered at the beginning of any bathroom project.
History shows the first vanities consisting of merely a table with a built-in basin, located within the bed chambers. This was a device used to wash your face both morning and night. As the plumbing world became more advanced, the ‘vanity table’ was taken out of the bedroom and placed in the bathroom. What began as a simple ‘toilet table’, morphed into a ‘dressing table’ then eventually became the term we all recognise today; a ‘Vanity’. Although the product had its humble beginnings, it has certainly grown in popularity over the years and is now one, amongst others, the most common bathroom fittings around.
Why choose a vanity over a normal bathroom sink?
Why opt for a bathroom vanity instead of a standard basin? Vanities can be very beneficial in many different circumstances. Even though Vanities are very large and take up a lot of room, they actually offer additional space that you can utilise in your bathroom, so the space does not go to waste. This space is offered in a variety of ways using mainly, drawers, cupboards and shelves built into the vanity unit. Many of our vanities offer customisations, so that you can choose the type of storage facility you require for your bathroom. This allows you to fully personalise your vanity to accommodate for your certain tastes and needs.
With this in mind, this leads to the next beneficial point. With a place to store all of your essential bathroom products, installing a vanity in your bathroom means there will be less clutter and it will be easier to keep your bathroom spick and span. This makes caring for your bathroom extremely easy and ultimately creates a less stressful environment. Another advantage of incorporating this unit in your next build, is the pure design and aesthetic benefits. A vanity allows for creativity and a full imagination. With clean cut lines, smooth edges, a range of colours and materials, there is no doubt that you will be able to create the bathroom you have always envisioned.
