Distinctive, Handcrafted Vanity Mounted Sinks

Having a good vanity in your bathroom is like having fine
furniture on display. Some of the latest vanities to hit the market are at least
worth a look. These vanities come in a variety of real wood types and have granite
or marble tops, very much the top of the line. Plus, they have a double sink
option and are handcrafted right down to the stenciling. As a result they’re
not cheap. The cost is anywhere from $700 to $1,200 dollars. Of course, you can
still go to your local home improvement store and pick up a nice vanity with
real wood fronts and particle board, for right around $250 dollars.

The
advantages of the vanity over the sterile looking pedestal and the wall hung sink
is definitely the storage capability.
A vanity provides
all your bathroom essentials at your fingertips and is one of the most
distinctive pieces of furniture in the home.

If you want cutting edge, the latest in vanities
take a u-turn from tradition. These modern European trends are all about steel
and limestone, taking on a retro look from the 70’s. Some pieces are very
elegant looking, like the Kohler Fountainhead Bathroom Vanity. This free standing
vanity looks more like art than a bathroom fixture, very stylish. At the other
end of the spectrum is the Atic Pop Vanty. I almost expected Austin Powers to
pop out of this thing. They say in the description that it’s a trendy lime
green, 70’s inspired piece. I’m not sure if either lime green or the 70’s is
inspirational. A handyman
can usually assemble the store bought vanities, or you can just follow the
manufacturer’s instructions.
