To choose the best floating vanity for your bathroom, keep the size of the room in mind. Since the main idea of a wall mount vanity raised off the floor is to create a spacious, airy look to a bathroom, choosing one that will still leave space on either side can work well. It's important not to place anything, even storage boxes or a waste basket, under a floating vanity or it can ruin the look. If you have a large bathroom, a double floating vanity could be a good use of the space. Consider the level of storage you hope to have in the vanity you want.

Remember that the more cabinetry a floating vanity has, the more non-floating it becomes. Yet, innovative, stylish shelving can make the design more pleasant to the eye. View floating vanities with no shelves as well as open and closed shelving to see what you prefer. One great option may be to choose a floating type of vanity that has only a row of drawers under the counter top; this way, you can still get an intensely sparse look while still having neat storage options.


Double floating vanities may have a supporting stand in the center between the wall-mounted sides. Some of these styles feature storage in that center stand which may provide one shelf each for two people sharing a bathroom. A bathroom large enough to fit a double vanity may still look spacious if the piece extends right to the walls without leaving room at each end. Before selecting a double floating vanity, consider the different fit possibilities and take accurate measurements of the space.

If you have an awkwardly shaped bathroom, choosing a corner floating vanity may be the best option. Some corner floating vanities are designed with a small shelf under one side and vessel sink on top of the other counter. This combination can look interesting and attractive in a corner. Since floating vanity styles are clean-lined and modern in their look, vessel, or dish-shaped, sinks tend to work well with them.

Whatever kind of sink you have or will buy to use with a floating style of vanity, make sure that the model you choose will fit. Look for floating vanities with easy installation as well as a guarantee, if possible. A wall-mounted faucet can be a great choice with a vessel sink and floating vanity; choosing all three at the same time can help you coordinate the styles and sizes.
