How to Select The Right Console?
A bathroom console is a practical and stylish addition to your bathroom. These smart pieces of bathroom furniture are close cousins to the vanity and serve much the same purpose. Your console may be the stark modern home to a beautiful vessel sink, or it may be a substantial addition to the storage capacity of your bathroom. They may be attached directly to the wall or stand freely on legs or a base. Picking the right one isn’t difficult if you know what you’re looking for, but with so many options on the market, it’s easy to feel a little overwhelmed. Here are some questions you can ask yourself to narrow down your choices.
How much space do I have?
Many bathroom consoles, particularly the wall-hung type, are great space saving options, but exactly how compact do you need your console to be?
If you’re outfitting a very small bathroom or cloakroom, a petite wall hung console like this white matte console top from Duravit is ideal. It has a tiny footprint and looks clean and simple, blending beautifully with a modern interior design where an uncluttered look is everything. Space under the sink adds an open feeling to the room, making everything seem bigger and airier.
How much storage do I need?
While many bathroom consoles are designed to be minimalist, it is possible to track down models which add a lot of storage options.
The smart-looking shelf from Duravit is a handy spot to stash towels or other bathroom supplies so that they’re right at hand whenever you need one.
Three slim drawers fitted beneath this clean white console from Duravit give you space to stash away all those creams, potions, razors, hairpins, makeup, gadgets and other bathroom clutter. The joy of a clear countertop, a neat bathroom, and having everything you need at your fingertips is a good reason to think about opportunities to work storage into your bathroom
How many people use the bathroom?
Consoles come in so many sizes that you can pick one to accommodate your family and household.
This beautiful polished wood console from Duravit comes in many widths, even longer than 2000mm. It has room to spare for two sinks, to allow side-by-side toothbrushing, shaving, or makeup application with no elbows jostling for position!
What other fixtures will I need?
When you’re shopping for bathroom furniture like a console, don’t forget that you’ll usually have to purchase your sink, vessel, or basin separately. Fixtures such as supports, taps and more are often sold separately as well. It’s something to keep in mind as you make up your bathroom budget.
Whichever console you choose, it’s likely to be a main focal point in your bathroom, and one of the first things you see every morning. Above all, you should be guided by your tastes and desires. Your dream bathroom will be a reflection of your personal style, and bring you and your family joy, comfort and convenience every day.
