The vanity is the cornerstone of your bathroom. It is important to accomplish size, style, and function with your piece. Maykke has a variety of vanity options to suit your tastes. We have contemporary and modern vanity sets, including models with warm finishes or classic whites that add an air of elegance. We offer sturdy floor pedestals or unique wall mounted models that add an airy, minimalist feel to a space.
Before you choose a design, take into consideration the size of your space, the location of plumbing and available storage. Bathroom vanities come in all shapes, styles, and sizes. As the foundation of your bathroom, the vanity needs to create flow, provide storage, and add to the room's overall atmosphere.
If you're working with a smaller space, shop for single sink consoles. An oversized sink can dominate a bathroom and impede traffic flow. Even small vanities can be designed to accommodate your storage needs. A small to medium vanity set is considered anything from 17-inch to a 30-inches. Measure your bathroom so you get the perfect fit. Maykke’s 18-inch Fawn comes with dovetail drawers featuring brushed nickel knobs and an open shelf. The Wren is a clean white bathroom vanity that provides more open storage space with one large cabinet. Hanging one of our mirrors over the sink will make a smaller bathroom feel spacious.
Larger bathrooms can accommodate more expansive vanities. Choose from styles that offer single or double sinks. Sets like the Sterling come with one sink to provide extra counter space. Models like the Abigail are available in a variety of sink configurations. Bathroom vanity sets ranging in size from 36-inches to 60-inches or larger should be reserved for bathrooms with extra square footage.
Making sure your new vanity fits with the current plumbing is essential. If you are designing a bathroom in a new home, make sure the plumbing is installed in a set up that suits your design needs. Wall-mounted vanities are beautiful but may require the pipe rerouting if they're replacing a more traditional floor-mounted version.
Beyond the practical considerations, you need to consider the many different style options. Sinks come in three main styles. Undermount sinks are installed under the counter and have a cleaner appearance. Because these sinks are flush with the countertop, cleanup is painless. Self-rimming sinks, with raised edges, are referred to as top-mounted or drop-in. They're installed directly into the counter with its edges resting on the opening. Vessel sinks are bowl-shaped units that sit atop the counter's surface, reminiscent of old-fashion wash basins.
There are also a wide range of pedestal materials. Maykke offers models in Cinnamon and rich Walnut wood finishes, drift gray finishes, and classic white, among others. Wood finishes add a warm feel to a space. More modern finishes provide a clean, minimal, and elegant feel. Naturally, the size, style, and color of your vanity’s hardware changes the look and feel of the piece.
There are many variations to consider when choosing the perfect vanity for your new bathroom. It's wise to measure your space and devise a plan before shopping. Consider your plumbing situations and options. Once you know what your space can accommodate, you can start thinking about design, finishes, sink styles and hardware style and placement. Vanities come in all shapes and sizes to accommodate any room. We offer many space-saving options that suit your style without overwhelming your bathroom. With the right materials and forethought, you can accomplish elegance and luxury in any bathroom, and the right vanity is the first step.
