Let’s face it: The bathroom is the room that receives the most activity and yet possibly the least attention – we rush through its features and functions every morning and night, possibly in between if we work from home, and occasionally, we stop to clean it and add a new bottle of bath suds.
But by really planning our bathroom furniture, we can have a whole new relationship with this room, enjoy its wonderfully generous and uncomplaining items, and maybe even fall in love with it.
At Willow, we think the best way to start creating a beautiful and peaceful washroom is by incorporating a welcoming yet practical vanity – but how do you find the perfect one for you?
Storage Is Key in a Room with So Many Functions
If you want equilibrium and tranquillity in your life, bathroom storage is an absolute must – you don’t want to be tripping over spare towels or having to move one thing to lay your hands on another. The best way to incorporate storage is to combine it with the essential items you already have – enter bathroom vanities!
From a single or double sink bathroom vanity to a bathroom vanity with a mirror, all provide storage space you can’t afford to live without – and don’t forget the luxury of a countertop for all your beautiful items! At Willow Bath and Vanity, you will find spacious and accommodative cabinets that can store all your bathroom essentials.
Our Essential Checklist for Choosing Bathroom Vanities
Before you dive in and spend your hard-earned dollars on fabulous bathroom vanity with a mirror or do a Google search for “how much does a quartz countertop cost?”. Stop for a moment and run through a quick bathroom checklist – call us a bit of a ‘Monica-from-Friends’ but trust us, you will have much more fun if you prepare!
Be Honest With Yourself
Consider your average day: Are you the kind of person who loves to preen in front of a big, bright mirror for a long time? Do you have kids all trying to wash their faces simultaneously? Do you have a lot of medications or fluffy towels? All your personal habits will come into play when choosing the right vanity for you.
For example, if you and your partner enjoy brushing your teeth together before you go to bed, you probably need a double sink bathroom vanity. If you have lots of smaller items to stow away, you might want to consider drawers rather than a big cupboard.
Choose the Perfect Spot
It doesn’t matter if you are DIY’ing or hiring someone in to do the work for you. You will find the perfect spot with a combination of assessing the traffic through your bathroom and knowing where your plumbing is as well as the location of the windows, doors, any electrical outlets such as shaving sockets, and other amenities.
When it comes to plumbing, your new bathroom vanity will need to be big enough to fit around existing pipes, plumbing, and any wiring while allowing access to all those things in the future. It will save you lots of time (and money) if you don’t have to redirect any essential resources after fitting the unit in the wrong place.
Pick Your Perfect Size
It may sound obvious, but one of the first things you need to do, once you have completed checks one and two, is to measure your space. You are at an advantage if you already have a vanity unit in place, as that will give you a great idea of size – but when you measure it, don’t forget to allow for overhanging countertops or legs that sit wider than the cupboard. Make sure you include depth and height measurements – and don’t forget the faucet when it comes to the height of your unit.
We have the option of vanities without countertops, but we still recommend you measure your room up before you buy these so that when you get your new surface, it can fit well. You can see all our measurements on the product specs themselves. Our shortest size is 20 in – 29 in and largest one is 80 in – 89 in. Do not hesitate to contact one of our Willow experts if you have any questions or concerns.
Choose Quality Wood
Water everywhere? The bathroom is a humid space, where water is not just coursing out of faucets but accumulating from the steam in the air. Your bathroom furniture must withstand this wear and tear for several years, but how do you find the right materials?
At Willow, we are the masters of the solid wood vanity – solid wood means your unit will deal with more pressure and use over time than many other units on the market. We also believe in creating only environmentally friendly furniture because we think that too many things we buy today are made without any thought for tomorrow. To know more about the wood quality, follow us below.
Teak Tea Wood
Teak tea wood is considered one of the strongest types of wood. Outdoor garden furniture made from teak is extremely durable, rot-resistant and won’t warp even if left untreated, making it ideal for long-lasting bathroom furniture that will last for decades. Our vanities are made up of teak tea wood and with their sturdy built quality, our teak wood vanities will last a lifetime with you. Now, head below with us and look at some of our best teak wood bathroom vanities.
