Bathroom Vanities: From the Past to the Present

There are many people who tend to look at a bathroom from a purely functional point-of-view. And there cannot really be any reason for this other than that they have never gone for a remodeling. Because if they had, they would know how much there is to appreciate in bathroom aesthetics – from the accessories to the style of the tub to the vanity cabinets.

Bathroom Vanity Cabinets

Bathroom Vanity Cabinets claim a history of their own. From fancy trimmings to minimal designs, bathroom cabinetry has evolved a long way.

In order to understand how Modern Bathroom Vanities are what they are today, let us take a quick look at their evolution since their inception.

5 points which follow the history of bathroom vanities:

  • During the days when there was no such thing as indoor plumbing, most vanities were located in the bedroom. Small wooden tables with porcelain countertops and a pitcher that held the water to wash the face while leaning over the matching bowl.
  • The Victorian Era saw the concept of the modern bathroom taking root and the development of advanced plumbing. Bathroom vanities became wall-mounted sinks, equipped with hot water and a self-draining system.
  • From the Victorian era and into Edwardian period Bathroom vanity cabinets were less utilitarian, made out of exotic wood with fancy furnishings reflecting the form and look of aristocratic dressing tables popular at the time.
  • It wasn’t long before bathroom vanities morphed into bathroom furnishings. A sink with running hot and cold water could be built on top of a wooden bureau with pull out drawers. It was at this point that the development of the Modern Bathroom Vanities really began.
  • Over the past century, furniture style vanities were slowly streamlined. They had a Victorian elegance, but they were more modern and comfortable.

Today, vanity designs have become even more minimalist. The art lies in the way simplicity and utility are brought together.
