Our Guide to
Choosing the right Vanity

Embarking on a bathroom renovation or construction project? Look no further than the vanity, the focal point that sets the tone for your entire space. With a myriad of sizes, styles, and designs available, vanities offer the perfect opportunity to craft the ambiance you desire while keeping your bathroom organised and clutter-free. Choosing a vanity for the long haul means prioritising durable materials. Explore unique features such as full extension drawers with metal sides, soft-close doors, and drawers for added functionality and sophistication.

When it comes to size, consider standard dimensions like 600mm, 750mm, 900mm, 1200mm, 1500mm, 1800mm and 2100mm or opt for a customised solution to perfectly fit your bathroom space. However, keep in mind that bespoke options may come with an additional cost. Once the size is determined, delve into the world of styles and additional features to tailor your vanity to your unique preferences. Most vanities offer flexibility in tapware combinations, allowing you to complete the look with the perfect finishing touch. Let's explore the diverse types of vanities available, ensuring your bathroom becomes a personalised sanctuary of style and functionality.

Wall Hung Vanities


A wall-hung vanity design offers numerous advantages that enhance both functionality and aesthetics in modern bathrooms. Opting for a wall-mounted vanity not only maximises floor space but also creates a visually appealing, minimalist look. Additionally, the elevated position of the vanity makes it accessible for cleaning underneath, maintaining a hygienic environment.

The versatility of wall-hung vanities allows for customisable configurations, accommodating various storage needs.

Freestanding Vanities


In the realm of bathroom design, the floor-standing vanity emerges as a versatile and stylish option, seamlessly blending functionality with aesthetics. Picture this: a sturdy and durable construction that not only withstands the test of time but also brings an air of timeless elegance to your bathroom space. The ease of installation is a noteworthy feature, making it a hassle-free choice for various layouts. What truly sets a floor-standing vanity apart is its generous storage capacity, promoting an organized and clutter-free haven.

Ensuite Vanities


In the world of bathroom design, the mantra "less is more" holds particularly true when it comes to ensuite vanities with reduced projection. Embracing a more compact and streamlined approach, these space-savvy vanities bring a host of benefits to the forefront. The limited projection not only caters to smaller ensuite spaces but also encourages a sense of openness and airiness, making your private oasis feel more inviting.

Vanity Tops Explained

A ceramic top for bathroom vanities is a classic and popular choice. It is crafted from ceramic materials that are durable, resistant to scratches, and easy to clean. Ceramic tops often have a glossy finish, providing a sleek and polished look to the bathroom. Usually the basin is integrated with this top design.

Solid surface tops for bathroom vanities are engineered from a blend of acrylic, polyester resins, and natural minerals.
