What Are the Advantages and Disadvantages of Floating Vanity Cabinets

You're always looking for ways to improve yourself and your home. One of the most commonly used rooms in your home is the bathroom, and one of the most common complaints about a bathroom is that it is too small.


Enter the floating vanity cabinet, & ASASA Construction has got a floating vanity cabinet idea for you. Wall-mounted vanities can make & break your bathroom, but it all depends on the available bathroom space. We are weighing the benefits & drawbacks of installing a floating vanity cabinet while bathroom renovation, and you could also call them the flows and cons.


So, What Exactly Is A Floating Vanity Cabinet?

Before deciding whether a floating vanity cabinet is right for you, you must first understand it. A floating vanity cabinet is sometimes used as a verb - floating your vanity.


The majority of traditional cabinets you see are just that: traditional cabinets. Floated cabinets are wall-mounted vanities that float above the ground, so they do not extend to the floor's bottom but instead rest slightly above it. As a result, the wall behind the cabinet can extend down to the ground, and it's just a regular vanity or bathroom cabinet floating above the ground.


The Benefits Of Owning A Floating Vanity Cabinet

Here are some reasons why you might decide to go with the flow.


  • A floating vanity cabinet instantly adds a sleek, modern look to the overall look of your bathroom.
  • When you install this piece, your bathroom will appear larger. The bathroom flooring will now extend to the wall, giving the eye more space to look. You'll have more room because your feet will have somewhere to rest while you wash your hands, face, or brush your teeth.
  • When installing a floating vanity cabinet, cleaning becomes much easier because you have eliminated all corners and nooks. Instead of digging deep into the crevices of your bathroom, dust bunnies previously hidden around the corners are now fully exposed and can remove with a single swipe of the mop.
  • You have the option of adding more storage. If your sink raises above the ground, you can add under-sink open shelving to show off how well-organized you are.
  • Giving your bathroom a modern renovation and installing a floating vanity can help highlight the other elements in your bathroom. Assume you have a fantastic sink or a show-stopping claw foot tub. A large vanity previously hid them, but now they have their moment to shine.
  • Do you have a favorite tile? Similarly, floating your vanity will give your bathroom a facelift and expose previously hidden tiles.
  • When you leave an open space beneath your sink, you give the people who will use it more options. If you have a walker or wheelchair in your home, it will fit more easily under the vanity. If a young child needs to use a stepping stool to reach the sink, the stool's legs now have a place to go when using the water.
  • A floating vanity cabinet is a great idea for homes with radiant heat. Because you've added extra space for foot warming opportunities, you'll be able to keep your feet nice and warm while using your sink.
  • A floating vanity's height is highly adjustable, so you can have it as tall or as low as your bathroom requires. You can choose what height you prefer and adjust it for taller or shorter users based on what you believe will be best.


The Drawbacks Of Using A Floating Vanity Cabinet

Even though there are numerous benefits to having a floating cabinet, the style is not for everyone.

  • Professional installation is required to ensure that the fixture is properly attached to the wall - this is not a do-it-yourself project. As a result, you can't expect to save money, even though this isn't a particularly expensive renovation project.
  • Steel or other strong support frame is required to hold the vanity and keep it attached to the wall, especially if children or the elderly live in the house.
  • Because floating the vanity will expose the rest of your bathroom floor, you must ensure that your entire bathroom floor finishes.
  • It is purely a personal preference, but because this is such a sleek look, people who prefer a more traditional feel to their decor may not want to float their vanities.
  • Space can be a problem at times. Because of the sleek design, the sink may take up less space, leaving you with less cabinet space. It is especially true if your vanity is your only storage source in the bathroom.
