Choosing a Bespoke Bathroom Vanity Unit

The bathroom can be a place of tranquillity and comfort. It’s the place we choose to relax and unwind after a long stressful day, whether that’s submerging into a deep bathtub or showering our troubles away.

From morning routines to night time rituals, we spend a lot of time there, so it’s understandable why many of us want to add a splash of luxury and perhaps even uniqueness to it.

One of the best ways to add your own personal touch is through a bespoke vanity unit. The storage and character this product can add is truly unbeatable, fusing storage and beauty in the most pleasing way.

What is a Bespoke Vanity Unit?

A bespoke, bathroom vanity unit is often the centrepiece of a beautiful bathroom. Customisable to your needs, from sizing, style to colours and finish. A bespoke vanity unit could be described as a bathroom cabinet or under sink cabinet with a glamorous twist. They’re perfect for storing toiletries and bathroom essentials to declutter the space to add to its luxury and relaxed feel.

However, with so many options and features to choose from it can be difficult to know where to start. Thankfully, here at Parker Howley, we work with hundreds of high end interior designers looking to bring their clients’ visions to life, so we’re well equipped to explore the styles available and help you customise it to your needs.
Here are a few elements to consider…

1. Bathroom/En-Suite Size

When it comes to the size of your bathroom, consider your surroundings and be sure to measure the space around where your vanity unit will sit.

You have a couple of options:

Wall Hung Vanities

This type of bespoke vanity unit is fixed to the wall to provide space between the floor and unit so you’re not taking up any of the room’s surface area – brilliant for smaller bathrooms or en-suites.

That being said, with so many styles and options available, some people prefer the minimalist style these types of units offer.

Freestanding Vanities

This style is floor standing and not fixed. Bespoke to suit the style and shape of any type of bathroom. From one beautifully crafted solid unit to drawed units with shelves the customisation is truly endless – the perfect focal point for your space.

Single Vanity Units

Catering to every need, we offer compact slim vanity units the size of a single sink. These can be added to en-suites, bathrooms and even downstairs toilets, providing the added benefit of storage in even the tightest of spaces.

Double Vanity Units

If you’ve got a medium to large bathroom, or even the space for two sinks, we would recommend a double vanity unit. This way you have ample storage space and the freedom to be really creative with your design. Plus, you don’t need to fight with your other half for the sink in the morning, winner!

2. Family Usage

The size of your bathroom plays a big part in deciding which vanity unit you need but storage is equally important. Ask yourself; what will you be storing inside your vanity unit? Will other family members need to use the storage too?
Our bathroom vanity sinks have grown in popularity over the years as people seek to hide toiletries, childrens bath toys, toilet rolls and other unsightly objects to achieve a sophisticated, minimalistic look. In fact, it’s been said a clutter free environment is sure to result in lower stress levels, improved focus and even better sleep quality.

3. Colour and Finish

When it comes to choosing colours and finishes, ultimately it’s down to personal preference. Nevertheless, if your bathroom has a contemporary, fresh look you might want to keep that style consistent with a clean white or stylish grey vanity unit. If your bathroom is more opulent and sleek then a mysterious black or deep navy may be more to your taste.

You have the freedom to go for any colour you wish from pretty pinks and glossy shines to earthy greens and natural woods, while it’s got to reflect you, we know what works, so as experts, we’re always on hand to advise.
