Bathroom Vanity Units - Definition of representation in a bathroom

Bathroom decorating ideas are endless, considering innovative trends in interior decorating. You can let your creativity run and implement whatever plan you can imagine. Beyond personal hygiene, bathrooms are places to relax after a day out or a place to cool off in the beginning of the day.

Bathroom vanity units are the essential utility furniture in a bathroom, adding compactness and order in space. In this sense, the Internet may be the best place to look, as online stores present the products in the catalogs organized to facilitate the search. Before placing orders, is vital to enter the exact dimensions for the size of your bathroom.

Bathroom furniture varies with the type of bathroom and general household architecture. For example, master bathroom suites are usually larger and luxurious than the other bathrooms or locker rooms in the home. So much thought has to go into its design, taking into account the idea that they are worthy of some extravagance, including even the bench tops. Small bathrooms are more compact and there are ample options for decorating and design them.

Have a well-designed unit, adjustable shelf to accommodate items of different sizes. The shelf can be designed to hide the pipe and make the space more orderly. A vanity mirror is an interesting addition to complement the bathroom vanity units. The material and color of the unit should be chosen according to the rest of the decor. Modern bathroom vanity units; such as bench tops are made from various materials such as wood, granite, glass and marble. Units wooden colored plates are excellent for small bathrooms. Frosted glass doors create a unique fashion statement.

Vanity tops are an important part of the bathroom vanity units, or for that matter, all over the bathroom, as they are the most used public spaces. They are made of different materials such as glass, depending on the personal taste and the type of strength required in bathing conditions. The counter is usually subject to moisture and heat from heating devices. Also is used as a solution to cleaning fluids or soap that is spilled. Therefore, it is vital to select a scratch-resistant material that is not easily damaged by heat and moisture.

Some people opt for recycled glass, which is considered to be environment friendly and creates a bright effect, because of their patterns and colors and shapes. Another functional aspect of bathroom vanity units is the ability to adapt to the toilets. Counter top basins are the most attractive designs of the basin, because the counter works as a storage space to place useful things, such as soaps and lotions. Bench tops with integrated sinks and mirrors fixed on the adjacent wall can make a perfect place for toilet tag.

Bathroom vanity units are essential components of furniture for bathrooms, contributing greatly to the effectiveness of the bathroom. They provide storage space highly desired and keep the bathroom clutter free. They must be well compartmentalized as cabinets and drawers, to organize bathroom accessories and place items of personal hygiene in order.

There are bathroom vanity units that are made to fit any size or type of bathroom. Whatever your needs may be, you can find the perfect vanity to improve your style and bathroom decor.

How does it work?

Just give us some approximate sizes of your bathroom via email or phone and we can give you an indication of price. From there we can work with you and or the cabinetmaker to choose the right timber for the job based on durability and colour, and then handcraft the bench top to make the bench top a perfect fit.

What about freight?

This is a service we organise for you. We have shipped bathroom vanity units all over the world and regularly send vanities & bench tops throughout Australia. In most cases the vanities are bubble wrapped and placed inside a specially made box for protection. Because we send a lot of freight Australia wide we get some very reasonable rates on freight so just ask us for a price.

What about the recess for the basin?

* Option 1 - We recommend that the basin/s are cut in by us before we spray on the three generous coats of marine grade polyurethane. This helps to seal all surfaces and provide protection to all areas of the vanity. To get the size and shape of the basin correct, we get a template from you (this can be sent in the post) and then a location of where the cut out will go. Really it,s quite simple and we ask the right questions to make sure we get it right.

* Option 2 - The basin cut out can be done after the kitchen bench tops are installed. In this case, we send you some touch up lacquer so that you can easily seal the bare timber before installing the vanity.

What timber is best for me?

The choice is easy. All our timber is the same price so all you have to do is choose the colour you like. We can recommend timbers that are more durable than others and send you photos or timber samples to help you make your decision. The most important thing is to choose timber that is kiln dried. All Fab Slabs timber has been kiln dried.

How long does it take to make a bathroom vanity unit?

From start to finish it takes about 2 weeks to manufacture a vanity. A lot of this time is the lacquering process. We then like to leave the vanity tops at least a week prior to sending or delivery to allow the lacquer time to really harden up. As we are always busy we recommend you give us as much notice as possible.
We are happy to answer any questions you have, just give us a call or send an email.
