Choosing a style of vanity which functions best in your bathroom can be a daunting task. With so many different styles and finishes to choose from, narrowing your choices down to what will really work for you is tough. Don’t rush your choice! Athena has the pros and cons of the two most popular vanity styles covered. Let’s take a look.

Wall Hung Vanities – What are they?

Athena Wave Syrtari Vanity

Wall Hung Vanities are fixed directly to your bathroom wall, allowing the space beneath to be utilised.


▶ Wall Hung Vanities are installed off the ground so you can utilize the space beneath it

▶ Due to recent popularity of wall hung vanities, there are more design options than ever before

▶ Having your vanity off the ground can make your bathroom appear more spacious

▶ You can install wall hung vanities are a height that works for you


✗ Cleaning underneath these vanities can sometimes be a real pain

✗ You might be short of storage space

✗ You may have to reinforce your bathroom wall if it is not structurally strong enough

Freestanding Vanities – What are they?

Nera Alumino Vanity

Freestanding vanities sit on the floor of your bathroom and fix directly to the wall. They are totally enclosed thanks to many varieties featuring kickboards.


▶ They are a timeless style that will never go out of fashion

▶ You’ve got oodles of storage space in these large units

▶ All of that plumbing is completely covered up

▶ It’s one less space to clean!
