This sleek, modern glass vanity is undeniably stylish. The vessel sink effortlessly adds a pop of wow, to what otherwise could be a boring vanity. However, the glass counter top and non-traditional sink could bring up some hesitations and maybe even some questions. The contemporary look is obviously gorgeous but there are some things to know before taking the plunge.
Most importantly, would a glass counter top and a glass sink really be a good idea for a careless, rough, non-ballerina-like person rushing to get ready in the morning? Here’s the good news, even if you’re a little like Bamm-Bamm (well, as long as you’re not purposely destructive) the glass is not going to break. It’s designed to be usable and practical; otherwise it would be dangerous. The glass is not like a delicate wine glass that can shatter into a million pieces. It’s made from toughened or tempered glass, which means that it’s very strong and does not easily chip or crack. In the rare case that it does break, it would break into small chunks instead of jagged shards so it would be less likely to cause injury. So even during the most hectic mornings, breaking the glass vanity will be the least of your worries.
The Pebble Beach vanity’s glass counter top should discourage the collection of clutter and encourage having a clean space. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a simple vanity, without piles of products that haven’t been used in months? A counter space that only holds the basics creates a very Zen living environment, which everyone could benefit from.
Now unfortunately, all bathroom vanities do require some cleaning. No one has come up with a self cleaning counter yet. So regardless of the type of vanity that sits in your bathroom, it should be cleaned regularly. Since the vessel sink is more exposed, the outside and inside of the sink might have to be cleaned slightly more often than a traditional recessed sink.
Since it’s see-through, a buildup of toothpaste, soap or even (ew )hair, is not going to look very nice. Regular maintenance will keep this from being a problem but to make up for that, the glass countertop is easier to clean than the traditional tile countertop. This is because grout is very difficult to clean and the glass countertop only needs a quick swipe.
The Pebble Beach vanity is also completely customizable. The floor cabinet is not attached, so the vanity can be installed at any desired height to fit the very tall, the very short and everyone in-between. It can be installed at whatever height is most comfortable and easy to reach.
