Considering a Topless Vanity?

The majority of bathroom vanities come with a countertop and sink. However, if you want to customize different aspects of the vanity (like the countertop, hardware, etc.), you may want to consider cabinet-only options.

Why Consider A Topless Vanity Option?

Bathrooms are not one-size-fits-all, meaning even with a wide selection of options, there is not always a prefabricated vanity ideal for every space. What’s more, choosing a vanity that you can customize gives you more opportunity to change designs in the future. Prefabricated models often have tops permanently affixed. Topless options allow you to choose how counters are secured, giving you a better idea of how to remove them if you desire a simple upgrade.

When you choose a topless vanity (a cabinet without a countertop), you are given full control over its customization. Selecting a topless vanity allows you to also select sink, hardware, and other features most complementary to your space. Most bathroom vanities are standard sizes, giving you innumerable choices when it comes to finding just the right top.

Just as there is no one-size-fits-all bathroom, there is no single right solution for the updating of every space. At Décor Planet we pride ourselves on offering the widest variety of topless vanities to help each of our customers choose the exact option needed to perfect their homes.

Modern Bathroom Décor

It may be that “modern” is a misnomer these days because when you’re talking about modern home décor, you’re talking about a style that has been around for over five decades. 

Modern décor really took off post-World War II, and was prevalent in brand new suburbs throughout the country. Mid-century modern homes with post-and-beam design, the idea to bring indoor and outdoor settings together with large windows, and sleek appliances and state-of-the-art materials were all selling points. Gone were over-stated Victorian or traditional doors, hardware, and cabinets. Scandinavian simplicity and natural shapes were en vogue, as were Frank Lloyd Wright and Eichler architecture to give homes functionality and style.

Mid-century designs never went away, and they’ve experienced a renaissance of sorts over the last decade. But, beyond über-modern signature furniture pieces how does modern décor extend to the interior of your home, specifically the bathroom?

Creating Modern Bathroom Décor

Modern bathrooms are minimalist in design. While some bathrooms want the focus to be on the bathtub and shower combo, or the oversized vanity, modern décor works because it blends the walls and appliances into a natural style, much like the Scandinavian designers were hoping for 60 years ago. Bathtubs, showers, and sinks may appear as if they flow out from the floor or wall. Color and tones are often natural or basic. But even this simplicity is a major statement.

As with any kind of bathroom or home décor, you don’t need to have the architecture, or bones, of a home to do what you want. While we’ve all seen homes whose architects gave them obvious modernist designs, even someone living in a well-preserved early 20th century bungalow can create a bathroom that is completely modern.

Modern Bathroom Décor & Functionality

While style is important, so is the utility of space. Floating vanities, sinks, and toilets will work well in a modern bathroom. Mirrors may seem basic when compared to those with traditional borders, but mirrors with simple borders with straight lines will work; mirrors with LED lighting and fog-free systems are even better.

Shower panels may still seem like a luxury to many people, but in a modern bathroom, they fit just as well as a bathtub-shower combination. Simplicity in style doesn’t have to mean going barebones on luxury or indulging in what you want.

Master bathrooms and half-bathrooms can both benefit from a modern décor makeover, especially if you are updating other parts of your home. The bathroom, like the kitchen, is a room that is used every single day. It’s not too difficult to extend the modern theme throughout your home, even if its design is closer to Victorian or Craftsman.
