One of the biggest trends in home design right now is a surge in popularity of hardwood – but not just any kind of hardwood, specifically textured wood. Everything from hand scraped wood floors to reclaimed shiplap wall panels have turned into hot, must-have items seemingly overnight. Salvaged and reclaimed wood are the most popular, but textured woods of any kind – that is, any wood with a very pronounced, distinctive grain – is incredibly desirable right now. In response to this trend, Sagehill Designs has released a full line of modular, textured wood bathroom vanities designed to fit any size bathroom.
Shop Sagehill Modular Vanity Collection:
The real star of Sagehill’s new Toby line is the wood: beautifully textured hardwood oak with select oak veneers. This light wood has the gorgeous, tactile quality that this trend is all about, but with the durability and water resistance you really need for a bathroom. The vanities are designed with simple, streamlined lines and attractive but subtle hardware with almost no other adornment, which really lets the natural-toned wood shine. It also has an open shelf style with a slatted base, which is a very trendy look right now, particularly for a master bathroom.
Just as importantly, Sagehill’s Toby collection isn’t just one or two bathroom vanities – it’s an entire set of completely modular pieces, including vanities in several different sizes, as well as pieces to connect them, like drawers, makeup stations, and even linen cabinets and shelves. That means it’s possible to get a vanity with this same trendy style that will work with any size bathroom and any installation type, from a petite 24″ freestanding cabinet for a small bathroom to full wall-length installations for a large master suite.
It also means that if you’re aiming for a larger installation, it’s possible to completely custom design the size, shape, and storage features of the vanity you’re getting. Because each piece can be purchased individually, and because all the pieces are designed to fit together, you can arrange them into absolutely any configuration. Need more drawers? Done. Want a makeup station? You can have one – all seamlessly assembled and perfectly matched.
Whether you want a single freestanding vanity or a large, wall-length vanity set, Sagehill’s modular vanity collections are designed to make it easy to decorate the rest of the bathroom, too. The collection includes mirrors and medicine cabinets specifically designed to match the style of the vanity, as well as linen cabinets in various sizes that can either be installed as part of a large vanity unit or freestanding on their own. This makes it easy to get a coordinated look throughout the space without having to individually hunt down matching items or hire someone to custom build them.
This type of truly modular bathroom vanity collection is relatively rare, but it has more than a few advantages over having a set of cabinets custom built. Because the pieces come preassembled, these cabinets are much faster and easier to install, and they often cost a lot less, too, both in terms of the price of the cabinets themselves as well as what you’ll save on labor costs. It’s also one of the few opportunities out there to have a vanity that’s on the smaller side built custom to your specifications without the extra expense of hiring an outside contractor. Admittedly, in most cases you’ll still need to buy a separate vanity top, which is a drawback compared to other pre-made bathroom vanities, but not more trouble than you’d run into with a fully custom project.
Like all vanities from Sagehill Designs, the modular vanities and accessories from the Toby collection are built to the highest quality standards. All drawers are made with dovetailed joining for added strength and longevity, and are placed on smooth, full extension ball bearing gliders, giving you greater access to the inside of the drawers with whisper-quiet operation. The oak hardwood construction, too, makes for a long-lived vanity, and all that beautiful textured wood is treated with an heirloom quality finish to ensure your vanity will stay looking beautiful after years in a harsh bathroom environment.
