Here’s to Vanity

Many homeowners in Arvada, Castle Rock, Colorado Springs, and Denver tend to focus on an elegant sculptural free-standing tub or a power shower that allows them to soak or wash away the stresses of the day.  There’s no doubt that tubs and shower systems are essential fixtures for any bathroom and can be the cornerstones of creating an in-home spa.  However, many homeowners do not give the same status or importance to the bathroom vanity.  Similar to the cabinets in a kitchen, the vanity sets to tone for the entire room and more often than not serves as a focal point in a bath. 

We help homeowners to design their vanity area using a combination of textures, shapes and materials to meet their specific functional and aesthetic needs, wants and desires.  A vanity provides a blank canvas for homeowners to make unique and personal design statements that complement the look and feel they want to achieve.  There are an unlimited array of material and design options.  That’s why many homeowners in Arvada, Castle Rock, Colorado Springs, and Denver  opt for a custom-made vanity that enables them to incorporate storage solutions, adjust for the height and mobility of family members and create special features that cater to their lifestyle.

Storage is a primary function for a bathroom vanity.  Vanity drawers and shelves assist homeowners organize and store various bathroom essentials such as toiletries, towels, cleaning supplies, hair dryers, curling irons, and make up among other items, helping to maintain a clutter-free look and feel to the bath.  

To further achieve a clean and uncluttered look in the bath, we often recommend hiding power outlets either in a medicine cabinet or drawers that remain easily accessible for powering hair dryers, electric razors or toothbrushes. 

Countertops in the bath serve a similar function to those in a kitchen.  It’s the space where items used for daily grooming and personal care items are often placed.  For many homeowners the more countertop space, the better.  

The sink and faucet also play key roles in the functionality of a bath that homeowners use daily for grooming and personal hygiene. Space permitting, homeowners in Arvada, Castle Rock, Colorado Springs, and Denver welcome the opportunity for dual sinks, providing a personal grooming station for each user.  

Lighting is another key component to enhance the functionality and aesthetic of a vanity area. Lighting the vanity provides the opportunity to improve functionality and to make a decorative statement. Well diffused lighting prevents shadows or glare while grooming in front of a mirror or at the vanity. Fixtures with milky, opaque glass shades or clear glass shades with a prismatic surface spread light evenly while preserving its intensity. 

A single light over the mirror can shadow a family member’s face and provide insufficient amounts of light on his or her neck and lower chin. That’s not a good lighting solution, especially for men, many of whom run a razor-sharp object along their throat in the morning before having a cup of coffee.

The vanity combines practicality, organization, and aesthetic appeal for all styles of bathrooms.  To determine how to capitalize on the flexibility and functionality that a vanity contributes to your bathrooms, Give us a call at any of our four Front Range showrooms or make an appointment to visit and let us show you how you can create a kitchen and bath that are the envy of the neighborhood.
