Bathroom vanities are in many ways the centerpiece of a bathroom. It’s a place where you’ll spend time every day, so it should be a place that is nice to spend time in. So the part when you get to choose a new vanity during your bathroom remodel is important, but thankfully, fun as well. A good vanity can uplift, inspire, ground, and motivate you to go out the door and conquer the day.
Before the advent of indoor plumbing, the vanity was a piece of furniture that you would usually find in a bed-chamber. They were usually basins built into a table attached to a mirror and made of high-quality wood such as oak. They were a revolution! They allowed people the luxury of washing their face and hands before going to bed and/or after waking in the morning! The English used to call vanities “toilet tables” in the 18th century before switching a century later to the term we use today, for our very overlooked but important, modern vanities.
