Revamp your Bathroom with a Stylish New Vanity Unit

Whether you’re installing a new bathroom or updating an old one, adding a new vanity unit is a great move. Our handy guide to choosing the best vanity unit for your bathroom will help you in the all-important decision making process.

It’s all About Size


If you have a smaller bathroom, your choices will be somewhat limited, whereas larger spaces can play about with a wider range of styles. It’s important not to make the space you already have seem smaller, so if your bathroom is on the compact side, a vanity unity specifically designed for smaller spaces is recommended – choose a vanity unit with storage so that you have space to tuck away all your toiletries out of sight and create a less cluttered bathroom.

Vanity units vary in width depending on your desires and style. They start from 400 mm and go as wide as 900 mm. 

Think about Finish


Whether you’re creating a sleek, contemporary style bathroom or a traditional design, you need to think about the finish of your new vanity unit. Whilst white is considered to be fresh and modern, and is one of the most popular choices, you could also opt for oak or dark wood – these are ideal choices if you’re trying to create a more rustic feel in your home. More and more people are recently opting for wooden, gloss and matt finishes. If you want to have a more traditional look, then you have the colour option. 

Decide on Fittings


Will your vanity unit be fitted or free standing? Bear in mind that a free standing unit could (in theory) be taken with you when you move – although the chances are if you move house you won’t need to take any bathroom fittings with you. Units which can be attached to the wall slightly above floor level are great for smaller bathrooms, as they lift clutter away from floor, giving a more spacious feel.It can often be more affordable to opt for a vanity unit which comes bundled with a basin, although most bathroom showrooms and retailers allow you to customise the type of basin and taps you would like. CheapSuites are given 5 stars from 95% of their customers and for a good reason.
