Few Essential Tips for Buying the Right Product
Size up the space. Taking into account the size of your washroom is an important first step in determining the best fit. A vanity of grand proportions will not only look out of place in smaller rooms, but it will impact negatively on the functionality of the room as well. The key is to select one that is functional and impressive but that also leaves plenty of space for movement around it.
Quality & Durability
Measure up your washroom and map out where you would like the new unit to be positioned. Next, determine the ideal sizes of each fixture and then be sure to measure any new furniture you're considering to purchase. That way you will narrow your choices down to those pieces that will achieve a balanced look. Once you have an idea of the size of the product you need, the next thing to look at is the quality of the fixtures and the types of materials they're constructed of. If you plan to be in the home for many years to come then selecting units that boast highly durable surfaces and premium quality workmanship makes the most sense. When you begin to narrow down your choices think about the overall style you're hoping to create. If it's a modern look you're dreaming of then you can't go wrong with sleek lines and white finishes. For a more earthy feel choose timber finishes and natural tones. By keeping all the bathroom furniture in one style you will create a cohesive interior that you will enjoy for years on end.
Why & When to replace your existing old unit
A washroom is just one of those places that you enjoy when its clean and tidy. As with any room with running water, the furniture and other items are subjected to more stress than in dry rooms. This is why you may find that you need to replace items more frequently. Even though your washroom may still look as good as the day it was fitted, closer inspection may show you it's time to make a change.
Look closely at your old bathroom furniture, are there any wooden elements that are starting to swell of bend out of shape? Have any lighter coloured materials begun to show signs of discolouration? Looking into the areas where two surfaces meet, for example around a bath where it meets the wall or times, you may see grey or black stains in the sealant. Because the washroom is a place where a lot of movement takes place (i.e. getting in out of the bath/shower etc.) it is quite likely that there are scratches and other marks on the surface of the unit.
These are just some of the signs that may tell you that you need to replace the existing one. However, your need to replace may simply be down to a colour scheme change or a need to re-plan the layout of the room for space saving purposes. Whatever the reason, make sure you get high-quality products to ensure the greatest longevity.
