Advantages of vanity units
A vanity unit offers a multitude of benefits for your washroom project. To start with the vanity unit conceals all the plumbing pipework tidily; preventing them from being tampered with or altered, allowing for peace of mind that no vandalism or mischief is undertaken in your washroom. Following on from this a superior vanity unit would also offer storage cupboards, utilising all the underneath space more than favourably. The storage doors come hinged as standard and would feature lockable storage doors for convenient and safe access.
Penultimately another benefit of a vanity unit is that a waste slot is cut into the counter top allowing for a disposal hole, boosting space efficiency by utilising free space already under the vanity unit for a disposal bin. The final benefit of our vanity units is they come in a variety of materials and colours allowing for a fit for purpose and customisable washroom.
