Floor Standing Vanity Units:

These units come in a range of styles and finishes, making it near impossible to choose which one to go for! They ooze sophistication and elegance. All whilst offering the storage space required for a minimalistic, de-cluttered bathroom. You can either opt for a single-floor standing vanity unit or a double basin unit. These are particularly popular in En-suite bathrooms.

One of our bestsellers is the Nuie Elbe Satin Blue 800mm Floor Standing 2-Drawer Vanity Unit & Basin – PAR303. This vanity unit comes with a single white basin. It has built-in handles which allows you to achieve that complete minimalistic feel.

Wall-Hung Vanity Units:

If you would like to take advantage of the space you have, installing a wall-hung vanity unit is great for doing so. These units fix onto the wall and are often referred to as ‘floating vanities’. You will have a small space underneath the unit that you can use to your desire. They look striking in a modern-style bathroom and are best paired with our range of wall-hung toilets.

Countertop Basin Units:

These units are available in both floor-standing and wall-hung styles. They are extremely great if you do not have a lot of space to work with and would prefer to combine the basin unit with storage.
