The Pros and Cons Of Wall Hung Vanities

May 11, 2017

Wall-hung vanities are very popular in home design these days, especially for smaller bathroom renovations. Floating, off the floor or wall hung the style with many names has many functional advantages that below we will break down in a good and bad light. 




The wall hung vanities will make your bathroom look a lot bigger. well they at least maximise the illusion of increased space. They are especially great for small bathrooms because they save space. Since a wall-hung vanity is indeed hanging, you can use the space below for storage. Not only can they be customised to your needs, but they also make your bathroom look elegant.  In 2018 alot of pre made vanities now come universal meaning they have a larger kicker for both wall or freestanding options so you now have a much larger increased range to choose from. 

  • Makes the Room Feel Bigger

  • Generally More Affordable To Buy

  • Creates Space For Items Such As Scales Or Kids Toys

  • Can Adjust Height Better 


With wall hung vanities if you are truly going for the seamless look, the waste will need to be trenched into the wall. It is quite a hard process as generally the bricks are not always deep enough meaning if its an internal wall especially there is a high chance of damage to the wall on the other side. The other con is the loss of storage as you are losing a third to half the vanity.  

Cleaning can be an issue for some people and most of the time when this design of vanity is suggested the inevitable question of how hard it to clean will come so keep in mind you may have to get on all fours to get under it.

  • Getting Underneath To Clean 

  • Costs More To Bury Plumbing In Wall 

  • Chance To Damage Other Wall When Burying Plumbing 

  • Can Lose Storage Space In Vanity 

Wall hung vanities are great for small rooms and patterned vanities. Often if you have a wood grain vanity to the floor it will clash with the floor tile. So by having it wall hung you can add a flow to the bathroom colour. Wall hung vanities also give you a feeling of flow and space so if the room is small keep it on the wall.
