As a homeowner, you want your home to be a comfortable and organized space. And when it comes to comfort and organization, your bathroom plays a crucial role. It’s where you get ready to start your day and probably unwind at the end of it. But oftentimes a cluttered and disorganized bathroom can be a source of stress and frustration. That’s where wall-mounted vanity units come in – they are the solution you didn’t know you need for a more organized and functional bathroom.
When I first started renovating my own home a few years ago, I quickly realized that the bathroom was a space that needed special attention. This is because the bathroom is one of the most used rooms in the house, and it’s essential to be comfortable and organized, you don’t want to find yourself rummaging through cluttered drawers and countertops every time you need to use the bathroom. Not only is it frustrating and time-consuming, but it also detracts from the overall experience of using this space. That’s why it’s important to prioritize organization in your bathroom, and wall-mounted vanity units are are a simple but effective way to help you achieve this goal.
One of the main benefits of wall-mounted vanity units is that they save space. Traditional vanities take up the floor space, but wall-mounted units are, as their name says, mounted directly on the wall, leaving some floor space available. This is especially important in smaller bathrooms, where space is at a premium and you can make the most of it to place small items below the unit, directly on the floor, where traditionally the bulky base or legs wouldn’t permit it.
Another benefit of these units is that they make cleaning easier, allowing to maintain a tidy bathroom. With traditional vanities, cleaning around the base of the unit can be difficult and time-consuming. But with wall-mounted units, the floor underneath is completely clear, or easy to clear, making it easy to clean any spills or messes that may occur. This is especially helpful if you have children or pets that shed hair and dirt in the bathroom.
Wall-mounted vanity units also offer a range of storage options. Many of the models available in small and big stores come with built-in shelves or drawers, allowing you to store all your bathroom essentials in one place in the bathroom, instead of storing them in other places in your house, and I’m thinking of the towels, mainly. This can also help reduce clutter on the counter and create a more streamlined and organized look. Additionally, as some models offer customizable storage options, you can look for such products so you can choose the configuration that works best for your needs.
Now, when it comes to the design of wall-mounted vanity units, there are many options to choose from. You can find units in a range of styles and materials, from sleek and modern to rustic and traditional, so basically the only limit is your budget and your time to do your research. But in general it should be easy to find a unit that fits your personal style and not only that, it complements the rest of your bathroom decor.
Since we’re going to talk installation, it’s very very important to consider the size of the unit. It’s crucial to choose one that fits well in your bathroom, not only complements the design aesthetic. Take measurements of your space and consider the placement of other fixtures and fittings in the bathroom, such as the toilet and the shower, to ensure that the unit doesn’t interfere with their function.
And of course, as with any renovation project, there are some things to keep in mind when installing this kind of vanity units. First and most important to avoid wasting some of your time, make sure you have the right tools and equipment. You’ll definitely need a drill, screws, and a level to ensure the unit is installed correctly. It will be important to make sure the unit is securely mounted to the wall to prevent any future accidents. It may be a good idea to call a professional or a handyman if you’re not comfortable with DIY projects or if you have any doubts about your ability to install the unit properly. A professional will always ensure that the unit is installed securely and safely, giving you the peace of mind.
And let’s not forget about the plumbing. Depending on the unit you choose, you may need to adjust the plumbing in your bathroom to accommodate the new installation. This may require the help of a professional plumber.
In conclusion, wall-mounted vanity units are a great solution for organizing and improving the functionality of your bathroom. They save space, make cleaning easier, offer storage options, and come in a range of styles that will fit your personal design preferences. As someone who already been through a renovation, I can attest to the fact that a well-organized and functional bathroom can make a big difference in your daily routine. So if you’re looking to improve your home and increase your comfort, consider installing a wall-mounted vanity unit in your bathroom.
