How to Determine the Right Style of Vanity
Determining the right bathroom vanity for your home comes down to a few different things. While things like the number of sinks may be limited (mobile homes can probably only handle one), choosing the style is always an important feature to determine.
This will come down to personal style. Traditional cabinets? Antique pieces? Pedestal sinks? Knowing the style ahead of time can make choosing the right vanity a bit easier (though there are additional features to keep in mind).
Here are a few important things to consider when it comes to choosing the right style of vanity:
- What color?
- Planning on staining or painting?
- Doors, drawers, or pullouts?
- What type of door style?
Another thing to consider is the fact that vanities don’t have to be free-standing. Most free-standing vanities for mobile homes should come with mounting equipment to provide a more level, “floating” appearance.
If storage isn’t an issue, the floating or wall-mounted countertop could be the best choice. After all, that cabinet will take up more space in an otherwise small bathroom, so if it isn’t necessary, just leave it out entirely.
Finding the Right Countertop
Regardless of the cabinet or sink, perhaps the most important feature to a mobile home vanity is in the countertop. The right countertop should have a visually appealing aesthetic while also being easy to clean up quickly.
The right countertop depends on the sink and cabinet. If those tend to be something more rustic or antique, it may not be the best choice to go with something modern for the countertop. Again, it all comes down to personal preference and style.
There are tons of choices available for the countertop on the vanity. Quartz, granite, laminate, marble, wood, concrete, and solid surface countertops are just a few of the options available. The most popular choices are quartz and granite because of the clean stone look that gives the countertop a more luxurious aesthetic.
Even better, quartz and granite are two of the more durable options for countertop. Remember, the vanity needs to be able to hold up for a long time, and going with durable materials – that can also provide a unique and beautiful aesthetic – is what a quality vanity needs.
Going with softer stones may provide a different aesthetic than the traditional stone options, but there is one thing to keep in mind. Soft stones tend to scratch easier, and they will also have a lesser tolerance for moisture.
Should the Mirror be the Same Size as the Vanity?
As a general rule of thumb, the mirror over the vanity should be several inches smaller than the vanity and sink area. Though mobile home vanities will be considerably smaller than their traditional bathroom counterparts, this is still a great rule to go with.
So, while a traditional bathroom vanity may be about 48” or so, the vanity going into a mobile home may be half of that. This is due to the lower ceilings in a mobile home as well as the smaller size for the bathroom area.
So, if the entire vanity is only 24” in total, consider going with a mirror that is around 20” or so. Even better, the mirror doesn’t need to be connected to the rest of the vanity. It can “float” above the cabinet itself, allowing for custom spacing and a cleaner, less connected look.
Another important consideration for a mobile home bathroom vanity is in the choice of hardware. Not all hardware is created equally, either from a visual or functionality standpoint. Choosing the wrong hardware can make the entire cabinet look “off” and can ruin the entire aesthetic.
But just as importantly, the proper hardware should be completely functional. Hardware that is clunky to grip can make for a frustrating experience whenever something is needed in the drawers or cabinet space.
The two common forms of cabinetry hardware are knobs and pulls. These are meant to protect the finish of the cabinet in an important way. They protect the wood finish on the cabinets by keeping the oils from our hands from coming in contact.
For full-overlay and frameless cabinets, these are pieces of hardware are especially important because fingers won’t be able to fit into the reveals of the cabinet. So, finding the right hardware is essential for creating the perfect bathroom vanity.
How to Find the Right Hardware
While each of the components of the bathroom vanity plays an important role in the entire structure, the hardware may be the most important piece. Choosing the wrong hardware can compromise the entire look and function of the vanity.
Here are a few helpful tips for ensuring that the right hardware is chosen for the vanity.
Step 1: Pull or Knob?
The very first step is to know what kind of hardware you want. There aren’t any hard and fast rules about what to pick; it all comes down to visual appeal and functionality preferences. The great thing is that they don’t have to be entirely uniform; they can be mixed, too.
Using pulls for drawers and knobs for the doors is a very common look that combines the best of both worlds. A good rule to follow, however, is that larger doors and pull-out doors should have pull hardware. This is more about functionality than it is about appearance.
For pulls, the way they are mounted is important, too. Vertical mounting could make it a more natural grip when opening drawers or doors versus a horizontal mounting. When using knobs, they can provide a smoother aesthetic but may be a bit more difficult to grip.
Step 2: Curved or Straight?
For the sake of this piece, let’s say that the choice is pull. Now we have to get a little more nuanced and decide whether or not the hardware should be curved or straight. It is important that the hardware choice is consistent with the type of lines incorporated into the design.
Hardware that is most consistent with the rest of the design is important. For example, square cabinet styles – flat pane and shaker, primarily – will need square or flat style hardware to match the lines of that style cabinet.
On the flip side, there are curved cabinet styles like pillow-top doors, raised panel, recessed panel, and more. Finding curved hardware provides softer edges and tends to have a bit more detail to it than straight. It may seem like small things, but all of these factors can come together to make an aesthetic work.
Step 3: Think of the Finish
Now that we’ve considered the overall aesthetic considerations, finding the finish is the next step. We want all of the colors, shapes, and lines to come together to form a unified design. Most homeowners tend to go with either a brushed nickel or chrome for their finishes, but there are so many different available options to consider.
Another thing to remember is that the hardware doesn’t have to match the faucet so long as it compliments any of the other finishes in the design. If the faucet is stainless or brushed nickel, there are complimentary finishes that can go along with it:
- Stain Brass
- Black Matte
For chrome, the options tend to look like this:
- Clear glass
- Dark Bronze
The choices will come together to provide a unique, unified design that ties in all of the components of the vanity together to look the way that you want.
