In the world of design, trends come and go in a blink of an eye. One minute the paint color you just slapped on your walls was a hot look and in the next second, it’s yesterday’s news. But sometimes, trends stick around, they might be pushed to the wayside as soon as something new is introduced but there are something that will never go out of style. One of those things are wooden vanities.
Wooden vanities have always been a staple in the design world and very recently they have been rearing their heads once again as a hot trend to follow. As makers of wooden bathroom vanities, we could not be happier about this reemergence. But what is it about wooden vanities that make them both on trend and a timeless classic?
It’s all about the character. Recently, bathroom trends have been leaning on the more modern side of life. Clean lines, bright whites, and industrial touches are all the rage but they can leave the space feeling cold. Add a wooden vanity and suddenly the space becomes warmer thanks to the natural look of the wood.
The organic charm provided by wood, especially unpainted and reclaimed woods, bring a natural serenity to a modern bathroom by adding visual texture and interest. Paired with a stone or quartz countertop, a wooden vanity can perfectly marry natural elements with modern design.
Now, you might be wondering, why would you use wood in such a volatile environment like a bathroom? Isn’t water and wood a bad mix? Typically, yes it is but, all of our vanities are treated with both a formaldehyde free conversion varnish and AWI rated level 5 marine grade finishes. These additional steps help protect the wood from water damage and improve the overall durability of the vanity.
Wooden vanities add a natural charm to a room that could easily come across as sterile and unwelcoming. And it’s because of this that they will never go out of style, no matter what new trends the design world might come up with next.
