What is the secret to the intrigue and allure of vanities cabinets? To really understand this, we may need to go back in time. About a century ago, before the invention and proliferation of cheap plastics, wood was still the reigning king of furniture materials. Because the “assembly line” was not yet a widely-used system, wood craftsmanship was a truly valuable trade that required ample artistry and expertise. Making vanities cabinets involved lots of care and pride, and artisans poured themselves into their work. And while many vanities were imitated or copied, they were never mass produced. Because of this, all of these vanities had their own unique character and personality. The owners of these vanities cabinets had the pride of knowing that they possessed a unique vanity that was built just for them.
We had a pretty great antique vanity like that one when I was growing up. It stood about five feet tall, and it had a dark stained finish. The legs of the vanity were designed to look like large bear claws. It was a very unique vanity, and one that I remember vividly. That’s what an antique bath vanity is supposed to do. It captures your attention, and makes an impression upon your memory. When I walk into a room that has an antique vanity in it, for a moment in my mind, I can travel back to a time when all furnishings were constructed by hand for that genuine sense of reality that is too often missing from modern artificially processed items. A time when highly skilled craftsmen took great pride in their work and built beautiful vanities cabinets that would stand the test of time.
I hope you don’t misunderstand me, I realize that modern machine production methods do in fact allow more people to enjoy these goods at a more affordable rate. But I do know for a fact that quality was sacrificed in the name of progress for quantity. Having vanities cabinets helps me feel a connection to my ancestors in a way that simple photographs can’t quantify. It takes me to a place where there are no automobiles, no deadlines, and a man or woman could slow down and enjoy life to the fullest measure.
So if you feel like your bathroom could benefit from some extra personality and charm, or if you want your furnishings to reflect your own individuality, consider vanities cabinets. A house is just a thing made of wood, brick, and stone. A home is a living thing that you bring life to with yourself, your family, and your furnishings. Notably, vanities cabinets give a bathroom a unique character and style, not just a great new look. The type of personality depends on you and what your tastes are.
