New Wall Mounted Bathroom Vanity
Long before wall mounted bathroom vanity were confined to bathrooms, toilets were precious bedroom additions that gave women their own sanctuary to perform beauty tasks amid trays of perfumes, trinkets and jars. A prized three-panel mirror mounted to wall and a comfortable dressing table chair completed picture. That everything changed when bathrooms grew to be size of rooms, at which vanity point only designs were limited only by imagination and money.
Glass vessel sinks, unique design accessories and a desire to incorporate plumbing for a bathroom decoration scheme ushered in era of wall mounted bathroom vanity. These prefabricated sections of granite, composite and other bathroom countertop materials are mounted on walls instead of with support of cabinets and other furniture. Once installed, they seem to float in space. Floating vanities require upper wall supports since natural stone is heavy.
Add weight of a thick glass or sink to ceramic container, and understand importance of structural reinforcements needed to keep these vanities “afloat” under large vanity mirrors. Searching for antique stores until you find a handsome piece of furniture is an ideal solution for your wall mounted bathroom vanity space. You may have to remove drawers to accommodate pipes, but if you stick drawer fronts in place, no one will notice. Drill drain holes and faucets and mount a sink and faucets. A period framed mirror completes your old dressing table project.
