Stylish basin vanity units with hidden and open storage
To get the most out of your bathroom basin, you need to put some sort of storage area underneath it. Before you start searching, think carefully what you want to use it for. Do you want it to conceal toilet rolls or personal toiletries and if so will it need to be able to take tall bottles? Do you want to be able to stack towels beneath it or do you want a mix of hidden and open storage?
The Milano Henley Traditional vanity unit, shown above from the Big Bathroom Shop and Best Heating, has a mix of hidden and display storage areas. Being able to see the wall behind the unit, even with those fluffy towels piled there, helps a bathroom that's on the small side feel more spacious. The drawer is useful too for hiding away those less attractive, but necessary items, such as toe-nail clippers and deodorant.
By having the basin sitting on top of the vanity counter top, instead of beneath it, you get more storage space under the vanity unit as well.
You also need to think about what space you need around the basin too. This unit comes with a choice of countertop basins, all give you some space around the sides for soap and toothbrushes.
