The different types of vanity units for your bathroom

When it comes to finishing off your bathroom and making sure that you have plenty of storage space, one of the best pieces of furniture that you can add to the space is a vanity unit.

Whilst you may think that vanity units are relatively standard in their style and design, the truth is that there are a variety of different vanity units out there that you can choose from. We have created this quick guide and infographic to teach you what they are all about. 

Floor-standing vanity units

As the name suggests, a floor-standing vanity unit is designed to stand on the floor, rather than being hung on the wall. These are usually chosen because they are easy to install.

More often than not they are delivered rigid, which means that you simply then stand it in the spot of the bathroom that you want it in. Then arrange for it to be plumbed into the wall. Even if the unit is delivered with some requirement for construction, then this will be minimal.  

Wall-hung vanity units

Another option for vanity units is the wall-hung vanity units. They are ideal if you are worried about the unit taking up too much space on the floor of your bathroom or if you want to give the illusion of more space.  

Wall-hung units will need to be fixed to the wall, which means that you are going to need to think about this additional step before you install it and have it plumbed in.

Corner vanity units

If space is somewhat of an issue in your bathroom, or you want to maximise the space that you have for storage; then you may want to think about a corner vanity unit.

As the name suggests, a corner vanity unit is designed to fit into a corner space with ease. They can be either wall-hung or floor-standing, depending on what you want from your vanity unit and even the basin part of the vanity unit is designed to be the perfect fit in a corner space.  

Many people will choose a corner vanity unit if they have a smaller bathroom, such as an en-suite or a cloakroom.  

Bathroom combination units

If you want to make sure that you have as much space in your bathroom as possible and like the thought of having a coordinated look and feel, then you may want to think about the bathroom combination units.  

These combine the WC unit and the basin unit too. They are often chosen because they give maximum storage space and they also allow you to have some form of display (or additional storage or display space) all on top of the unit.  

It doesn’t matter what type of vanity unit you choose. The main thing to remember is that having a vanity unit in your bathroom is the perfect way to make sure that you can store all those key items away, minimising the mess and clutter that can easily build up over time.
