Freestanding Worktop Vanity Unit Buying Guide

When it comes to buying a new floor standing bathroom vanity unit for your home, what should you think about when making your purchase? What sort of questions should you be asking yourself?

That’s why the team at Royal Bathrooms has created the buying guide below to answer the most common questions about buying a freestanding worktop vanity unit.

What is a freestanding worktop vanity unit?

There are many different types of vanity units available for bathrooms. But, freestanding worktop vanity units really stand out thanks to the prominence that they give to the basin.

Freestanding worktop vanity units (also known as floor standing bathroom vanity units, countertop vanity units and bathroom vanity unit worktops), consist of a unit which sits on the floor of the bathroom which both supports the basin and provides storage space.

By mounting the basin atop the vanity unit (rather than sinking the basin into the body of the unit like on other types of vanity unit), there is more space around the basin. This means it’s easy to store frequently used items such as liquid soap right at hand next to the basin.

Freestanding worktop vanity units are also popular because they elevate the basin into view and make it a distinct feature of your bathroom (rather than hiding it away like other types of vanity unit).

Because the basin sits on the ‘worktop’ of the vanity unit, it’s possible to use basins of many different sizes and shapes. Explore our range of floor standing vanity units here at Royal Bathrooms and you’ll find models with all sorts of different shaped and sized basins.

What types of bathrooms are freestanding worktop vanity units suitable for?

All types! Whether your bathroom is small or large, a freestanding worktop vanity unit will work well.

Because of the way they elevate the basin into a prime position, freestanding worktop vanity units help to create a central focus in your bathroom, drawing the eye to the basin as a key feature of the room. This can help make a smaller bathroom feel larger.

As we mentioned above, floor standing worktop vanity units are also immensely practical. Not only do they provide plenty of space for storing bathroom-related items such as hygiene products and towels, but the additional space they leave around the basin, provides storage space for frequently used items.

What are floor standing worktop vanity units made from?

What types of basins do freestanding worktop vanity units have?

Thanks to their design, freestanding worktop vanity units have arguably the most diverse range of basins of all types of vanity unit.
