The aptly named floating vanity gained new heights in 2020 as a popular bathroom design feature. Aside from having an intriguing name, floating vanities have a unique, memorable appearance: they look like they’re hovering above the bathroom floor.
But instead of using magic, floating vanities are very practically grounded to the back wall or side walls of the bathroom. Not only do they look cool, but the space below the vanity makes storage and cleaning easier than ever.
Let’s take a look at the top styles of floating vanities:
Single Sink Floating Vanities
Like the name suggests, a single sink floating vanity features just one sink. With the sink perched dead center, this style of floating vanity is well-balanced and pleasantly symmetrical. Available in both small and mid-range sizes, it’s perfect for bathrooms of all sizes and layouts.
Wall to Wall Floating Vanities
If you have extra real estate in your bathroom, you can upgrade your single sink vanity to a wall-to-wall model. This style of vanity is anchored by three points: the back wall and both side walls. This puts an interesting twist on traditional single sink floating vanities, which are only anchored by the far wall. Thanks to their larger profile, wall to wall vanities provide extra space for storage and decoration.
Double Sink Floating Vanities
Also known as “his and her” vanities, double sink vanities feature two sinks. This style of vanity is perfect for couples and shared bathrooms. Double sink vanities are roomy, providing ample storage space both above and below the vanity, especially if you opt for a model with built-in cabinets or shelves.
Custom Wall Mounted Vanities
With a little DIY ingenuity. you can craft a floating vanity that perfectly complements your bathroom’s style and layout. And if you’re not particularly craftsy, that’s okay too–there are plenty of talented interior design firms out there that would love to help you realize your “vision” for your new floating vanity. The upshot of a custom vanity is that they come in almost every style, color, material, and design you can dream up!
