As the name implies, wall mounted vanities are attached only to the wall, revealing open space beneath the sink to the floor. This floating design lends an airy look to the room, similar to using a pedestal or console sink.
Storage in a wall mounted vanity depends on the specific design. Some are simply a counter top and sink, while others feature a short cabinet beneath that offers some storage. The ample space beneath the vanity does provide the opportunity to add storage containers on the floor. Wall-mount vanities most often feature a clean-lined, contemporary design.
To choose a wall mounted vanity you need to decide on a size for your bathroom vanity. A smaller vanity is perfect for many, if not most bathrooms. A larger or double is more appropriate for a larger bathroom or a bathroom that is shared by multiple people. Either way, there are plenty of bathroom vanities to choose from. You will not regret installing the largest vanity possible. Just remember to leave space beside it to access adjoining areas for cleaning, especially if the toilet sits next to the vanity. And leave space for the trashcan, if it must sit beside the vanity.
Choose a style that matches the decor of your home. For example, if your home is very traditional, you will want to consider antique, marble or granite bathroom vanities. These are some of the most elegant vanities available. Or, if you have a contemporary style home, you will want to choose a modern bathroom vanity. These tend to be minimalist, sleek and metallic. They will often have a nickel or chrome finish coupled with a frameless mirror. These bathroom vanities are a bit more adaptable to a wide variety of homes, since they can fit into a room without taking too much attention, whereas typical traditional style vanity will look out of place in an ultra-modern setting.
