What Should You Know About Bathroom Vanities?

What Should You Know About Bathroom Vanities?

One way to get started is by answering this simple question: what do you need to know about bathroom vanities?

We have a question: how often do you think about your bathroom’s design? Maybe it’s time for a refresh. Remodeling or renovating your bathroom isn’t always the easiest project to undertake, but when you have the pros from WalterWorks Hardware on your side, it will be simpler than you think. One way to get started is by answering this simple question: what do you need to know about bathroom vanities? 

The Pedestal Sink 

It may sound a little confusing at first, but the pedestal sink is also called a freestanding sink. It doesn’t offer any storage, which might not fit your needs. However, if you are looking for an aesthetic upgrade, then this might be the right choice for you. Adding racks and other accessories can make a difference but you will want to make sure that the whole setup works and fits together correctly first.

Free-Standing Vanity 

One difference between a standard pedestal sink and a free-standing vanity is that the freestanding vanity features a square or rectangular look. It can also support two sinks in one zone of the bathroom. Wood and ceramic are the two materials that are most commonly used for these types of bathroom vanities. 

Wall-Mount or Floating

The wall-mounted vanity is, as evidenced by its name, mounted directly onto the wall in your bathroom. That’s why it is also known as a floating vanity. Even so, it’s best to be careful when you have such a sink in place, mainly because it is more vulnerable to impact damage that can knock it down onto the floor and damage the tile or ceramic there.  

Vessel Sink

Vessel sinks and vanities offer a touch of class and sophistication for your bathroom. That’s because you’ll often find them in high-end restaurants and resort hotels. A rising bowl pops out of the vanity’s body and there are storage cabinets underneath to make up for the smaller amount of counter space on the top of the vanity. You might also need to open up more floor space for this type of bathroom vanity to work, but that can be another element of your overall bathroom remodeling project.   


The undermount sink sees the basin configuration set up a bit unconventionally – the sinks are built right into the vanities themselves. There isn’t as much storage space available, but it does add a more sophisticated look if that is your fancy.
