There are several different types and designs of bathroom furniture. If you are looking for addition storage, a vanity cabinet for the bathroom can be a good idea. A vanity cabinet has a countertop plus cabinets or shelves. It’s usually found in home bathrooms as well as those in hotels and motels. Most vanities have a bathroom sink on the top and closed shelving on the bottom. A mirror or mirrored cabinet is usually hung above bathroom vanities. The most simple, basic type of vanity cabinet is made from inexpensive wood or laminates and consists of one closed cupboard on the bottom. High-end vanities may be crafted from good quality wood and feature shelves hidden by double doors with attractive chrome or nickel handles. Some vanity cabinets feature a small drawer right under the sink area and directly on top of the closed cupboards.
The basic, ready to install type of bathroom vanity cabinet is available at home improvement stores. There are usually several types to choose from that will work with many bathroom styles. For fancier bathrooms, beautiful dark wood vanities can be purchased from bathroom showrooms. Some of these are so elegant they almost look like fine dining room furniture. For instance, a high-quality cherry vanity unit may be carved or curved in design and feature beautifully designed cabinet handles.
