While some vanities are completely made out of glass, including the cabinets, this is not the norm. A glass bathroom vanity can be extremely expensive and fragile compared to other models. However, these kind of vanities scream elegance. They looks extremely nice in any bathroom and are also easy to wash.

When you buy a glass bathroom vanity, it sometimes comes with the sink. Other times, it will not have a sink and you will have to buy that separately. The benefit of the vanity coming with the sink is to ensure that they both match and fit together. If you have to buy the sink separately, you will have to make sure that they both match and that they fit together. Buying a sink that doesn’t fit would be a big bummer.
You can also get your glass bathroom vanity custom made by a glass manufacturer. The benefit of this is that the glass vanity is exactly how you desired. Furthermore, you can also get the bathroom vanity cabinets custom made, out of glass, to have one complete elegant vanity.

Glass vanities are gaining in popularity over the years. They can easily brighten up a bathroom, especially if there is a lot of natural light entering the bathroom. It creates an open space. However, if there is no natural light, you can install special lighting under the vanity counter top. This can become a focal point in the room.

There are different types of glass that can be used. You can use clear glass which is one of the oldest types of glass and also most popular. Gaining in popularity is the frosted glass. This glass is not completely see through but it has an extremely modern look and goes well with steel.

As it was previously said, glass vanities are good because they have low maintenance and are easy to clean. The sleek look goes well in a well-lighted bathroom.

The Modern Looking Steel Bathroom Vanity http://www.redassranch.com/2018/03/10/the-modern-looking-steel-bathroom-vanity/ http://www.redassranch.com/2018/03/10/the-modern-looking-steel-bathroom-vanity/#respond Sat, 10 Mar 2018 04:05:01 +0000 http://www.redassranch.com/?p=8293 While glass bathroom vanities are extremely modern and gaining popularity in households across the world, one cannot forget to discuss the metal bathroom vanities. A metal bathroom vanity is made specifically out of steel. People prefer these vanities because they are much more durable than their glass counterparts and generally last much longer than glass ones too. Since they are durable, they can hold more weight but at the same time, they are lighter than glass. This combination of properties make them a popular choice.

Similar to glass, a steel bathroom vanity is low maintenance since it is also easy to clean. This appeals most to families that have young kids that tend to make messes. For families with kids, there is a downside. On one hand the durability of steel is great because it can take the abuse without breaking. However, on the other hand, it scratches very easily. After a few years, it can have a lot of scratches if you don’t have a scratch remover to fix it up.

The neat thing is that vanity manufacturers are starting to also build stainless steel sinks. Some people enjoy the complete stainless steel look with both vanity, sink, cabinets and faucets made out of steel. Some people even have a mirror lined with stainless steel. For me, that’s too much steel! For that reason I prefer the combination of both glass and steel. This is an extremely contemporary look.

A nice look is a bathroom that is made out of a combination of both steel and glass. Usually, the countertop and sink will be made out of glass while the bottom part of the vanity and the bathroom vanity cabinets will be made out of steel. This modern look is preferred by many bathroom remodelers as they can accent the washroom with accessories made both out of glass and steel.

This style of a contemporary bathroom vanity is very easy to find. Most manufacturers and bathroom remodelers are incorporating this style in existing homes as well as new constructions.

Contemporary Bathroom Vanities

Contemporary bathroom vanities are made out of a combination of different materials. While you may find some that are made out of more than one material than other, these days it is doubtful that you will find one made out of a single material. The most popular materials are glass, stainless steel, wood and granite. A lot of people will have a granite vanity countertop, wood cabinets and either a stainless steel or glass bowl and a steel faucet. This is the preferred choice by many people.

The options are endless with contemporary bathroom vanities. I’ve seen many homes with the bathroom vanities mounted directly onto the wall. These vanities are easy to stand up against since your feet go right under the vanity. There are also some models that are attached right to the floor. These ones have a lot of cabinet and storage space to put any of your washroom accessories and hide them from plain sight. Generally, the single sink vanities are mounted on the wall while the double sink vanities will be attached to the floor.

Antique vanities also add a lot of charm and uniqueness to your bathroom style. To say the least, an antique vanity is not popular and not a style that we see each and every day. For people wanting to put an antique vanity in their bathroom, it is generally the focal point of the entire washroom as it stands out with its unique look. Also ,you cannot have modern bathroom fixtures with an antique vanity. Therefore, you will have to avoid the stainless steel and glass modern look. The accents have to be wood and rustic.

Before you rush out to go buy an antique bathroom vanity, there is one important thing you must consider. You must ask yourself whether you want a real antique bathroom vanity or a reproduction (fake) antique bathroom vanity. There are many vanity manufacturers that are noticing the demand for antique vanities and they are making new vanities that “look” old/antique.

A real antique vanity is harder to find and will be more expensive. However, these will be completely unique and genuine. There are only a few reputable antique dealers that sell real antique vanities. Even the ones that sell reproductions will market their vanities as being “antique” so watch out and don’t get scammed. You have to make sure that the dealer is selling a genuine antique vanity.

After you’ve decided on a paint type, you need to decide on what additional equipment you might need. Some people choose to rent a sprayer to spray their paint on to the cabinets. This is a viable option for many, but most newbies may want to try this in a less traveled room than the popular kitchen. You can get excellent results by brush painting with a good brush, so don’t skimp on a quality brush. Another piece of advice, don’t use foam applicators or rollers as they leave stipple marks regardless of how good of a painter you are. Remove the doors from the cabinets and remember to make some sort of mark so you’ll know the top from the bottom later on. Take all the hardware off to assure a quality paint job, but replacing the hardware will be an even better move in updating the look of your painted kitchen cabinets. With new hardware and smooth paint jobs, you can extend the life of your cabinets and make your kitchen cabinets look like new.
