An open vanity offers a fresh look to any bathroom. It makes a tiny space feel larger by lending a deeper sense of depth to the space. It isn’t for everyone, though. Many homeowners can’t forgo closed cabinetry or stand the sight of “openness” for different reasons.
If you’ve never tried the idea before but you’re considering it for your bathroom remodeling project, ask yourself these questions first:
Does the Sight of P-Traps Bother You?
The vanity door generally hides the plumbing, which most people consider unsightly. After all, most homeowners wouldn’t invest in a fine-looking pipe, let alone maintain one just to stay gorgeous. If you’re not ready to turn your exposed P-trap into a bath design gem, then an open vanity might not work wonders for your space.
Are You a Fan of Neatly Folded Towels?
Some homeowners think about shower conversion with carefully folded towels in mind. The photo-stylist in them want to show off their pretty piles. If you share the same fascination for the neatly-folded-towel thing, a door-less vanity makes the perfect gallery to display your work.
Do You Have Stylish Containers?
If you love transferring bath essentials into exquisite jars, you don’t want to keep them out of sight. An open vanity is a perfect place to store your collection for everyone to see.
Is There Any Near Storage within Reach?
Having an open vanity is a lot more encouraging when it’s close to other spacious storage units. This can help you declutter the area under your sink and have a clean look. Many homeowners even use the adjacent closed shelves and cabinets exclusively for storage and leave the underside of the vanity empty just to make a statement.
