Is it time to makeover your toilets?
Whether it’s a few budget improvements, a full-scale revamp or a brand-new investment, when it comes to upgrading bathrooms, vanity units should be top of the list.
Here specialists in toilets cubicles and hardware supplies, M&P Fittings, reveal the true beauty of vanity units – and why no bathroom should be without!
What is a vanity unit?
A great addition to any bathroom, a vanity unit is the name given to thecupboardthat sits below asink. And whilst they can simply be a boxing in unit, they usually have a dual function. Combining a crafty way of housing the sink base (and any unsightly pipework) with creating handy storage space.
Ideal for one sink or to run the length of a wall and encase numerous basins, vanity units can be custom built to accommodate any size or shape of bathroom. Offering functionality and great design, in one clever unit.
Benefits of a vanity unit
There are numerous advantages to fitting vanity units, including:
· Improved aesthetics
The most obvious reason to plump for vanity units? Because they look good. Providing a quick and easy way to hide ugly pipework and streamline bathroom designs.
With an extensive range of finishes and colours to choose from, units can be created from scratch or built to match-in with existing fixtures and fitting. Giving you the freedom and flexibility to modernise your bathroom space exactly as you wish.
· Reduced cleaning time
Pipework doesn’t just look unattractive, it can easily become a breeding ground for germs too. Awkward nooks and crannies harbour dirt and bacteria – making keeping the area clean, a difficult and time-consuming task.
Encase pipes in a vanity unit and not only is their exposure to dirt and grime minimised, but unnecessary contact is also avoided.
· Increased storage
Let’s face it, you can never have too much storage. And what could be more convenient that an under-sink cupboard. Whether it’s for additional bathroom supplies, towels or cleaning products, this otherwise unusable space can be transformed into practical storage with a vanity unit.
Worried about security? If you’re concerned about toilet rolls disappearing too quickly or the safety of leaving cleaning items unsupervised, don’t forget that you can always fit a lock.
Pipework frequently damaged? Sinks pulled away from the wall? Vanity units can be used as a way of protecting your basins and the important plumping that surrounds them.
Reduce maintenance and damage repairs, spend less time cleaning – there are numerous benefits to be reaped by installing a vanity unit, saving you both time and money.
· Maximised floor space
No room to move? Whilst there’s no denying they can be extremely useful, a standard bathroom cupboard takes up valuable space. Even wall units can make a compact area feel too enclosed.
Not so with vanity units, which are a great way to increase storage without encroaching on any more floor space.
Is there much choice when it comes to vanity units?
Yes! From the material used to the colour, size and shape, you’ll be spoilt for choice picking out a vanity unit.
And style and shades aren’t the only decisions. Other elements to consider include, whether you want your vanity units to be wall mounted, mirrors built into the design, or units made to match your cubicles and IPS panels.
