Choosing the Perfect Stylish Wall Hung Vanity Unit for Your Bathroom

Wall-hung vanities have become a staple fixture of every contemporary bathroom. The market is brimming with a host of designs and styles for modern bathroom furniture.

The only downside is that it can be tricky to choose the right one without doing your homework. Read on for our help and guidance!

Assessing Your Bathroom Space

Knowing the available space in your bathroom helps you make a better purchase decision when buying a wall-hung vanity. This style of vanity unit all benefits from a space-saving design to give your bathroom a sharp and minimal look, without needing too much room.

Nevertheless, it's important to ensure there is enough space to accommodate the vanity with its varying dimensions and installation requirements. Determine the installation area's height, width, and depth while leaving enough clearance space around the unit for easy access.

Note that your pre-installed plumbing lines, drainage point, and water outlets are in-line with the wall hung vanity installation requirements to ensure seamless fitting. If it is not the case, then you should consider checking out a floor-mounted vanity instead.

Stylish Wall Hung Vanity Units for Small Bathrooms

Wall-hung storage solutions are ideal for small bathrooms  due to their space-efficient design. These sophisticated yet stylish vanity units create an illusion of space, giving your bathroom an open, airy feel.

With a variety of sleek, space-saving designs available, finding the perfect vanity unit for your small bathroom has never been easier.

If you're designing a small bathroom or WC space you might find better options than typical floating vanities. For example, corner vanity units are a great choice for compact bathrooms, as they can be installed in an unused corner, making the most of the space you have available.

Large Bathroom Considerations

In larger bathrooms, floating vanity units serve as a striking focal point, ticking the boxes for both practicality and style. With a range of sizes and designs available, you can choose a unit that complements your bathroom's decor and becomes a standout feature.

With so many vanity unit styles to choose from, our freestanding bathroom vanity guide has been designed to help you compare all the top styles and make the best decision for your home.

What materials are wall-hung vanity units made of?

Unlike standard storage fixtures in your home, wall-hung bathroom vanities must withstand the high humidity of your bathroom.  Every day furniture materials will not last against high moisture, humidity, and temperature changes, which will cause warping, swelling, or cracking in their structure.

Selecting a wall-hung vanity unit made from high-quality, moisture-resistant materials is essential for ensuring its longevity.

Most wall-hung vanity units are made from MDF and MFC with high-quality paint finishes. MDF has a moisture-resistant coating, making it an excellent material for bathroom vanity units,  while MFC is an affordable alternative that is also durable and easy to clean.

While you're keen on finding the right material, ensuring the vanity is designed and constructed properly is of the utmost importance. Since it has to bear weight, all our wall-hung vanities are sturdy and support the weight of the sink and other stored items.

Selecting the Right Size and Design

Knowing the dimensions of your bathroom keeps you in check when buying wall-hung storage solutions. The size of the vanity makes a significant difference in how well it fits into your space and how functional it is for your needs.

Bathroom Size

When selecting a stylish wall-hung vanity unit, it's important to consider the size of your bathroom. If you have a smaller bathroom, a slimmer and more compact unit would be a better option.

Whereas, if you have a larger bathroom, a wider and more spacious vanity unit with dual sinks would be a better fit. Ultimately, the dimensions of your vanity unit should be based on the available space in your bathroom to ensure an optimal fit.

Storage Size

When selecting a floating vanity unit, considering your storage needs is crucial.

If you have an abundance of toiletries and towels, opting for a unit with additional drawers or shelves can provide the extra space you need. On the other hand, if you only need to store a few items, a simpler unit could be more practical.

Even though having sufficient storage space is important, make sure you prioritise the design and style of the unit to complement the overall look and feel of your bathroom. A well-designed vanity unit can help create a cohesive and visually appealing bathroom space. If you are looking for a bit more storage than you should consider choosing between different types of floor standing vanity units after thorough comparison.

Design Preferences

At Royal Bathrooms, we understand the importance of finding a unit that complements your bathroom style. With that in mind, we offer a wide range of colours and finishes to suit all tastes and design preferences. Whether you prefer a sleek and modern look or a more classic and traditional feel, we have a wall-hung vanity unit that will be a match made in heaven for your bathroom.

However, before buying a vanity unit based on its visual appeal, consider the overall theme of your bathroom. You may be drawn to the most stylish vanity in the showroom, but if it doesn't align with other fixtures in the room, it won’t be the best fit for your bathroom.

Choosing the right design for your modern bathroom furniture is crucial to achieving a cohesive and stylish look for your bathroom.

Basin Types for Stylish Wall Hung Vanity Units

Besides the futuristic floating design, what makes wall-hung storage solutions steal the show in your bathroom is the choice of basin on top. When it comes to style, these two basins stand out from the rest.

Mid-edge basins are traditionally inclined in terms of their design.  The raised lip around the edge of the basin   provides a classic look that complements many different styles of bathroom. Mid-edge basins are also super practical as they prevent water from spilling onto the countertop.

Minimalist basins, on the other hand, are a contemporary option, offering a sleek, sharp outlook. Thanks to the flat edge, they are typically integrated into the countertop or vanity unit for a seamless look.

D-shaped basin is a type of sink that features a curved, asymmetrical shape, resembling the letter "D". Due to its unique and modern design, this sink style has been gaining popularity in recent years. The sleek and stylish appearance of such shapes makes it an excellent choice for those looking to create a contemporary feel in their bathroom.

Choosing a countertop basin wisely can create the illusion of space in your bathroom and offer modern aesthetics - a must for every contemporary bathroom.
