The Pros & Cons of Floating Bathroom Vanities

The Pros & Cons of Floating Bathroom Vanities

​We are always looking for more space (or at least the illusion of it).  One way you can consider to help compensate for that is with floating vanity bathroom cabinets.

So, how do you determine if going with a floating vanity bathroom cabinet is the right choice for your new bathroom design? Let’s look at the pros and cons:

Pros
•Can make small bathrooms look bigger by creating the illusion of increased space. Creating an open space below the bathroom cabinets allows for light to move throughout the bathroom. We associate that light with more room in the space.
•Can provide additional exterior storage space typically lost by the toe kick area of a traditionally built cabinet…or just a convenient space for your favorite slippers.
•Creates a sleek, stylish and less cluttered modern look and feel to your bathroom.
•Open access underneath leaves dirt and germs fewer places to hide in the bathroom and can make cleaning up an easier task.

Cons
•Make sure it is properly fastened to the wall. This may mean that a steel or similarly strong support frame is required to support and is critical in order to create a safe space for everyone to use.
•Requires that the entire bathroom floor be finished and not just installed up to the bathroom cabinets toe kick and sides.
•Floating bathroom cabinets do not work well in more traditional style homes or spaces.
•Interior cabinet storage can be comprised by the sleek design and/or how much space a sink may take up, and should be taken into careful consideration.
