The Titus Floating Vanity Support Bracket from Federal Brace can be used to attach a vanity cabinet to the wall for a floating vanity. The Titus vanity support bracket can be mounted on the right or left side, and it has a lot of room for pipes and undermount sinks. Each support can hold up to 100 pounds, so you can put granite, quartz, marble, and other natural stones next to a base cabinet. The 18-inch support arms are made to fit counters that are 22 inches deep. The Titus is a lighter-duty bracket with two arms that can hold a base cabinet up to 24″ wide. It is not meant to be used with cabinets wider than 24″.
It will be next to walls on two sides, so support will be fine, but I’m worried about the middle because it will be 15-20 inches above the floor. I want to be able to see the floor and not have a space you can’t see but have to clean. I have a 66-inch run and am thinking about using Ikea over-fridge cabinets, which are 30 or 36 inches long, 15 inches high, and 24 inches deep.
We used a rail from our Ikea cabinets to hold up the vanity after two different high-weight anchors failed. These rails are very helpful, and we simply bolted them to any stud.
As the trend of lifting that “box” off the floor has grown, more materials, finishes, and styles are available for floating bathroom vanities. Bathroom vanities that hang on the wall started out as a minimalist style choice a few years ago. The style of these “floating vanities” has changed from modern to transitional, and they are now seen as a versatile option that works well with many different styles.
Even just a few inches of space under a cabinet can make it look lighter and more modern. When the cabinet, floor, and wall are all the same color, the vanity looks like a natural extension of the wall, making the room feel even bigger and more open. When vanities are hung on the wall, the floor isn’t broken up. This makes the bathroom feel airy and big.
Floated cabinets are vanities that are attached to the wall but don’t reach all the way to the ground. Instead, they sit just above the floor, so you can see the wall behind them all the way to the ground. They are just normal vanities or bathroom cabinets that float in the air. Most traditional cabinets are just what they sound like: traditional cabinets.
How are vanities that float held up?
Trends come and go, but good design is always in style. Most vanities are attached to the wall and sit on the floor of the bathroom. All of the weight of a floating vanity is supported by the bathroom wall.
Do vanities that float need extra support?
Installation of a Floating Vanity: Because the vanity is attached to the wall, it needs to have enough support. If it doesn’t, something as simple as one of your children leaning on it could pull it out of the wall.
How much weight can a vanity that floats hold?
Standard floating vanities made of medium density fiberboard (MDF), melamine faced chipboard (MFC), or plywood with sizes of 600 to 1500 mm (24 to 59 inches) in length and 480 to 520 mm (18 to 21 inches) in width or depth are limited to 100 kgs (220 lbs).
How far should a floating vanity be from the ground?

Do bathroom sinks have to be mounted to the wall?
Yes, vanities should be attached to the wall. Because plumbing often runs through the wall beneath the sink and is hidden by the vanity’s cabinet, a vanity that isn’t attached to the wall may move over time or if it gets hit by something.
Can quartz be used on a vanity that floats in the air?
Quartz is a great material for a floating vanity top in a bathroom that gets a lot of use because it doesn’t absorb water, doesn’t need to be resealed, doesn’t stain, and doesn’t let germs grow.
Is it possible to put legs on a vanity that floats?
We made the most of the fact that its height could be changed up to almost 10 inches by twisting the legs in just the right way until the vanity was level. We wanted the table to look like it was floating, so we only used one of these stainless steel GODMORGON legs.
Why are the counters in bathrooms so low?
Most modern bathroom cabinets are raised so that you can stand in a healthier way. Bathroom counters were originally made to be at the hip level of most people, while kitchen counters were lowered so that small children could reach the sink.
