It simply attaches directly to the wall and gives the illusion that it is floating above the floor. Installing a vanity can be a simple task that can easily transform a boring bathroom and save precious space. Add a floating vanity made of reclaimed or recycled wood. A hardwood slab vanity can liven up your bathroom by adding an antique look while using less space. Install a thin wood slab with a colored veneer and voila! A raised sink sitting atop a hardwood vanity preserves the wood. Make sure the wall can bear the weight of the wood. Don’t skip this important step or you risk having damage to you walls.
