A Quick History of the Beloved Vanity
The original bathroom vanities were quite different from what we likely think of today. In today’s modern vanities, we often see lavish and illustrious spaces where people ready themselves to meet the world. The very first vanities were stand-alone washstands. This meant they were pretty much a small table with a deep bowl. These were pre-plumbing days, of course. As plumbing came into play and the bathroom became far more private, the vanity played a bigger role as the centerpiece of the bathroom. As bathrooms became private and evolved into sinks that connected to the wall with plumbing, the design continued to change. In the Victorian Era, the neoclassical designs came into play as the long-legged pedestal sinks, often ornate, came into existence. Soon the vanities became furnishings as drawers and space were used to store necessary bathroom items. Today, many homes feature a more traditional Victorian-style vanity. And while it has traded the traditional ornate designs for simpler more symmetrical shapes, the function and beauty of these remain the same. Using natural stone on your vanity or vanity top puts an immediate layer of luxury.

Get Quartz in Your Shower Walls
If you really want to go all out and make a statement of sophistication and splendor, consider the option of replacing your shower walls with this amazing stone. If you are looking to replace your shower, it might be due to mold or the need for something far different. And everyone knows the pains of a moldy shower.
A quick note on mold and mildew…
Showers are ripe places for mold. Because of the frequent humidity and moisture, if the surfaces are not often properly cleaned or dried, then mildew begins to form. Mildew is the beginning of mold and boy does it like to grow in small nooks and crannies and deep corners of the tile.
So back to the shower walls. This is why having quartz as a material can save you lots of headaches for years and years to come. With quartz showers there are few to no seams and cleaning the surface is a breeze. That is, of course, in addition to the undeniable feeling of luxury and beauty that happens when you step into a bathroom with quartz.
