How To Take Advantage Of Floating Vanities To Make Bathrooms Spacious

Floating vanities offer a diversity of design opportunities which allow you to give the bathroom a glamorous, minimalist, luxurious, spacious or dramatic look. Their versatility and wide range of designs and styles allows them to look stylish in any type of bathroom. Let’s review some of the benefits that come with them.

A double vanity can offer all the storage a bathroom needs

A long, horizontal mirror is the perfect accessory to complement a floating vanity

To emphasize its sleek design, choose a contrasting color for the vanity

Despite the open space remaining under the vanity, the piece offers a lot of storage


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

To further emphasize the spaciousness of the room, use large mirrors

Floating vanities can be customized to also include accessories such as the towel rack

Not only that floating vanities can enhance the overall spacious look of a bathroom but they also maintain the focus on functionality by being so sleek and simple. This makes them ideal for modern and contemporary homes which are usually minimalist.
