What is a Floating Vanity?

Floating vanities are wall-mounted units that do not extend to the floor. They offer a significant departure from the traditional floor-standing vanities. Be it a compact space or a spacious luxury bathroom; these vanities have gained immense popularity in home design.  

  • Modern and Chic: Floating vanities bring a contemporary vibe to your bathroom. Their seemingly gravity-defying setup effortlessly imparts a sleek look.
  • Space-saving efficiency: These vanities are a great solution for enhancing the perception of space in your bathroom. By elevating them from the floor, you can visually extend the floor area, making your bathroom look bigger than it is.
  • Customizable: You get creative control over the size, design, and placement of your floating vanity, making it a unique feature in your bathroom.

Plus, despite their sleek design, floating vanities don't sacrifice storage space. With clever design, when we build these vanities can provide ample room to store toiletries, bathroom accessories, and other essentials neatly out of sight!  

With a floating vanity, you can create a harmonious blend of modernity and style; it's an inventive way to bring charisma to your bathroom design while enjoying practical benefits. Trust us, it will be a wow-moment every time someone asks you where your bathroom is.

Top Design Tips for a Fantastic Floating Vanity

Creating that stunning, minimalistic look with a floating wood vanity is all about your design choices. Designer Miriam Johnson, provides her top insights for achieving the ideal setup:  

#1. Size Matters

The size of your vanity is crucial, not just for the overall look, but also for functionality. Choose a size that complements the rest of your room, without overpowering the space. Our craftsmen will meticulously measure to get the exact fit!  

#2. Storage Preferences

Floating vanities can offer significant storage space – even without going to the floor. Consider how much storage you need in your bathroom and customize a vanity that can accommodate your needs.

#3. Color Scheme

We love color here at the shop! Keep your color palette light and simple to give your bathroom a spacious, clean feeling. White, off-white, and pastel shades are all fantastic options. Or if you truly want to make a statement, go bold with a darker color like black, navy, or a deep shade of green.  

#4. The Perfect Pairings

Pay attention to your plumbing fixtures, lighting, and mirrors, as they can make or break a look. Complement your new custom-built vanity with perfectly paired accessories for a cohesive and clean finish.  

We love the look of copper or gold accents alongside dark-painted cabinetry or striking black fixtures and hardware with white or light gray cabinets. Plan for equally noteworthy lighting around the vanity, keeping in mind task lighting for tasks such as grooming and decorative lighting to highlight the vanity area.
