Some people extend the idea to his and hers bathing areas (usually a tub for her and a shower for him) oreven his and hers closet space. But the very most important feature you should have in your master bath is a sinkfor each occupant, spaced far enough apart that you wont bump elbows while you brush. Double vanities are anice, stylish way to incorporate multiple sinks into your master bathroom, and also afford all the storage you needfor two.Compton Walnut Double VanityThe bathroom is one of those places that the battle of the sexes can rage the most fiercely. Especially if you andyour significant other both head in to work at around the same time each day, competing for sink space, counterspace, and even mirror space can make things a little tense. One of the best ways to keep the peace in yourrelationship is to have your own areas to get ready in the morning, and a double vanity is a nice place to start. Ifyouve got the space for it in your bathroom, I like a really large vanity like this Compton Walnut from HardwareResources thats wide and open, with far-spaced sinks so youll be well out of each others way. page 1 / 5

Whileits possible to install two separate, smaller vanities - sometimes even in different areas of the bathroom - to muchthe same effect, large double vanities are beautifully designed and make an excellent focal point in yourbathroom. Something like this Ornate Antique Vanity, for example, is perfect for a period-style bathroom; whilesmaller versions of similar styles are available, having a single long unit gives a period bath weight andauthenticity.Double Vanity With Faux Drawer Doors HYP-0704-72As well, double vanities afford a lot more storage without taking up as much space or requiring any extra storagecabinets. While very small single vanities have much smaller footprints, if you have a lot of toiletries, a biggervanity does a much better job not only of storing it, but keeping it out of sight. This Dresser Style Vanity, forexample, has more storage than you can shake a stick at, with 12 functioning drawers and two storage cabinetswith built in shelves. If you find yourself getting in a lot of arguments about, say, stray curling irons or shavingstubble in your sink bowl, a big double vanity is a great compromise: You both get to keep all your stuff in yourown space without ever having to see the others. page 2 / 5

This is most obvious in modular vanities like this TraditionalVanity. Assembled out of three parts: two single vanities (mirrored for better symmetry) and a set of storagedrawers. The pieces assemble seamlessly - just push the three together and assemble the plumbing through theopen backs - and provide more storage in less space than the three pieces would if they were installed separatelywith an appropriate amount of empty space on either side.Modular Double Vanity With Floating Counters HYP-0808N-73It doesnt hurt that modular double vanities look great, too. This Asian Double Vanity is more clearly three piecesthan most of the other modular vanities from Silkroad Exclusive, but the floating travertine counters and integratedtravertine vessel sinks are stylish and elegant. Paired with the patterned wood doors and drawers and antiquedbrass hardware, this makes for a truly stunning piece of furniture that comes with the added bonus of being highlyfunctional.Compact Double Vanity LTP-0180-52 page 3 / 5

They can also work well in smaller bathrooms,too. Though this Compact Vanity might admittedly leave you bumping elbows, if the main concern is having sinksfor two, this double vanity will do the trick in much less space than two average single vanities. In fact, its onlyfour inches longer than a largish single vanity, but has adequate counter space for necessities like toothbrushesand soap, plus private storage for each user and four shared drawers - which is pretty darn good for a very smallshared bath for two.Cottage Style Double VanitySome bathroom design practically screams for double vanities. Cottage style bathrooms, for example, rely onsimple lines and subtle wainscotting to create a homey look and feel. The continuous, unbroken lines on thisCottage Style double vanity are visually appealing and help emphasize that feeling - the very heft of the vanityhelps give a room that country feel, especially because its more like a piece of furniture than multiple smallerfixtures.Malibu 72 Inch Vanity From The Wyndham Collection page 4 / 5

While modular, wall-mounted vanities tend to be more common because they make it easy to create white space, if you need a little more storage - or just dont like the floating look - a vanity like this Mailbu from the Wyndham Collection is an excellent way to incorporate that sleek, minimal design into your bathroom without straying too far from tradition. The lines are utterly simple, and the handle-less doors make the whole fixture seem seamless, while the slightly floating counter tops and vessel sinks are all modern style. Minimalist Modern Double Vanity If you like a little white space, and arent quite so concerned about storage, something like this Minimalist Vanity from Legion is beautiful, sleek, and simple, with a very modern sectioning of the white space in the open center region. Theres space for towels and toiletries, but mostly for empty air, which means that when placed against a boldly colored wall - especially an artistic accent wall, the vanity will be especially striking. If youre planning a master bathroom remodel, have kids who dont play well and need a better designed kids bathroom, or are just sick of sharing a single sink, a double vanity can really make a big difference, and even end long standing bathroom feuds. And double vanities come in a huge variety of shapes and sizes, so no matter what your style, it shouldnt be too hard to find the perfect vanity to fit your needs. www.HomeThangs.com - Home Improvement Super Store info@homethangs.com Phone: 267-670-3883 Toll Free: 1-866-278-0880 Circle HomeThangs on Google+ Like HomeThangs on Facebook Follow HomeThangs on Twitter Follow HomeThangs on PINTEREST page 5 / 5Powered by TCPDF (www.tcpdf.org)
