Spaciousness.

Because floating vanities are suspended above floor level and have to be mounted on the bathroom wall, they have the ability to make the room seem more spacious and airy. It’s an effect similar to that created by floating media units or consoles which are used in living rooms

Accessories.

Floating vanities can be interesting design elements on their own but they often need accessories to complement them. Mirrors are the most common accessory. A large mirror can enhance the simplistic look of the vanity and draw the eye upwards.
