Vanity units in your bathroom make optimal use of the space under the sink and make room for all of your bathroom essentials. These usually include care products, bathroom linens and cleaning products. These are always at hand since they're centrally located under the sink. In addition, bathroom vanity units are a great way to decoratively cover up the sink's plumbing connections. The upper side of a bathroom vanity unit is usually open since this is where the sink is installed.
Bathroom Vanity Units at a Glance
The various bathroom vanity units that are available differ mainly in their appearance. You can choose between a bathroom vanity unit with a floating design, with or without pedestal feet, and a vanity unit as a console countertop construction. Below is an explanation of the advantages that each type of bathroom vanity unit offers:
Bathroom vanity unit wall-mounted - floating design:
Wall-mounted bathroom vanity units do not have any feet to support them, but are instead attached to the wall directly below the sink. This design makes it look like the bathroom vanity unit is floating. This effect will give your bathroom a certain elegance. In addition, wall-mounted bathroom vanity units are especially practical since the wall mounting makes it much easier to clean the floor.
Bathroom vanity unit standing – decorative cabinet legs:
Conventional standing bathroom vanity units are often placed on the floor without any additional wall mounting so they are not only a bit less stable, they're also not secured against tipping over. Our standing bathroom vanity units, on the other hand, are also secured to the wall. However, decorative cabinet legs can also be added to a floating bathroom vanity unit. They don't serve a load-bearing function but are merely decorative. They give the impression that the bathroom vanity unit is standing on feet and not hanging from the wall. A small design element with a big effect!
Bathroom vanity unit as a console with additional elements:
Duravit bathroom vanity units are also available as a combination of a console countertop and other supporting structure. The bathroom vanity unit consists of two separate elements. Console sinks can also be installed without any supporting structure or base cabinet under the sink.

Our Duravit vanity units are available in different widths and depths. We are able to offer everything from bathroom vanity units for your guest bathroom to vanity units for double sinks and vanity units for countertop sinks; we have the right piece of furniture for every need. We support your individual style by offering bathroom vanity units in a wide variety of surface finishes. You can choose from among bathroom vanity units in white, in light and dark tones or with a wood look. With many of these colors, you also have a choice between a matte and glossy finish. You can find the right bathroom vanity unit for every bathroom in your home.
Duravit vanity units are not only available with cabinet doors, but also as bathroom vanity units with drawers. They can have one to four drawers, depending on the furniture and size. They are all equipped with our modern and innovative pull-out technology. The tip-on technology of the handle-free pull-outs ensures maximum comfort and convenience: the drawers open gently with a simple tap. Closing them is as gentle as it is noiseless - thanks to the self-closing mechanism with soft-closure. Drawers with pulls also have a self-closing mechanism with soft-closure functionality, so they always close gently and silently.
Duravit vanity units with drawers also offer:
High load capacity and resilience
The suspension systems are made of metal so they are especially robust, which means that you can store heavy items in the drawers without any problems.
Full extension of the drawers
Thanks to full extension, the drawers can be pulled out completely, so that even the rear part of the drawer is easily accessible and the storage space can be used 100% comfortably.
Optional furnishing system
The solid wood furnishing system can be permanently built into the drawers at the factory, making the furniture even more substantial from the inside out.
The drawers can be moved and adjusted in three dimensions, making it easy to align them perfectly. Advantage: Our Duravit bathroom vanity units are delivered fully assembled and adjusted. This saves you a lot of time and effort.
None of our bathroom vanity units, whether they have drawers or doors, have any open edges, so they are ideal for damp areas, even in places that can't readily be seen. We manufacture our bathroom furniture entirely in Germany.
What Are some Basic Considerations when Installing a Bathroom Vanity Unit?
1. The bathroom vanity unit shouldn't be any taller than the lower edge of the sink. The precise measurement for this is from the floor to the lower edge of the sink. Note the different sizes of bathroom vanity units.
2. The size and height of the vanity is not the only relevant detail; the width and depth are also important. It's a good idea to match the dimensions to the dimensions of the sink and to pay close attention to getting the distances accurate during installation. We offer sinks that match every bathroom vanity unit perfectly.
3. One of the reasons to have a bathroom vanity unit is to cover up the plumbing connections. It's a good idea to make sure that there is enough room for this.
4. If you decide on a bathroom vanity unit, it's important to pay attention to how it's attached. The holes for the dowels should ideally line up with the joints in order to avoid damage to any tiles. Don't forget that the upper edge of the vanity should be flush with the lower edge of the sink.
By the way: All of our sinks are self-hanging so they attach firmly to the wall when installed alone or in combination with a bathroom vanity unit. In other words, the sink itself can be installed and used independently of a vanity.
