Nazarena has had a long career with Hastings, first in 2003-2010 and again since 2018.

Her focus at Hastings is on architectural sales; presenting Hastings’ CEU, promoting, training and teaching architects and designers about the value of the VOLA brand. She works specifically with the architect and design communities in the Metro New York and New Jersey regions, assisting them with project specifications and coordinating distribution through the Hastings dealer network.

When you’re searching for a bathroom vanity, you have to weigh a multitude of factors to hone in your style. Researching and educating yourself before committing to a vanity design leads to greater confidence and satisfaction with your remodel. Explore the possibilities to discover the perfect vanity to fit your individualized look, style and space.
Your jump-off point, the conceptual direction for your “look”. Contemporary, modern, transitional, eclectic, rustic. What’s right for you? Think about your bathroom theme are you fitting an existing style or redesigning your space? Your selection should harmonize seamlessly and reflect the greater bathroom design.
Considering layout, location and size are instrumental, giving you the parameters and your project flexibility. If you’re not doing any major remodeling, your vanity will have to sit where your current one is, but you might rearrange your plumbing in a larger project.
Once you’ve identified your vanity’s location, take measurements of the space to find out what it can accommodate or discuss with your architect or designer. While you need to consider numbers, it also helps to think about other objects in the room. Your vanity should leave plenty of room for navigating the space.
There are numerous vanity styles to choose from, so you should identify a type that fits your design vision and works comfortably in your space. The two major types of vanities are wall-mount and free-standing. If you have a small bathroom, a wall-mounted vanity helps lighten the space and make the room feel larger.
Other types of vanities include:
The finish materials and color palette you select distinguish your look and add character to your space. Since these designs will be situated in humid and busy environments, you’ll want a durable and water-resistant material. Some possibilities include:
Color is a driving force that typifies and amplifies your style and look — whether you’re going for clean and minimal or want to make a statement with a splash of color.
It’s essential to assess your storage needs when selecting your style and vanity configuration. You want to marry aesthetic with function for added value in your space. Open bathroom vanities might have shelving, but these shelves will be exposed, and you’ll have to style them for aesthetics. Vanities with drawers or cabinets can offer ample storage space, but they will create a different look than an open style.
When you want to install a new bathroom sink or countertop, you should consider a few factors.
Sinks exist in many configurations to work within your space constraints and reflect your design preferences. Types include:
As with any element in a room, you need to consider the dimension of your sink and how it will fit into your space. Bathrooms can be small spaces, especially if yours is a powder room, so it’s essential to think about how your sink’s overall size will affect how you move about the room. It’s also helpful to note that certain sink types take up more space than others.
A large vessel sink will look out of place in a small half-bath and dwarf the other elements. On the opposite end, a tiny basin in a massive room will look visually out of place. Blend your style and look with your room’s concept and physical layout. Large bathrooms are excellent spaces for double sinks and decorative vessel sinks.
For rooms on the petite side, consider smaller wall-hung basins or space-saving consoles. A small room doesn’t mean you can’t make a visual impact! Countertops can be tricky to integrate into small bathrooms, so you may have to rely on pedestal sinks, wall-mounted models and small consoles to make the room functional. Large bathrooms are ideal for double basins and vanity configurations.
Your finish material selection will greatly affect your room’s vibe, feel, functionality and upkeep.

This protocol will be implemented each time an individual comes into the building. If the initial scan indicates an individual has an elevated body temperature of 100.4°* or higher, a secondary check with a contact thermometer will be administered by a trained medical professional to validate the measurement. If both readings are 100.4° or higher, the individual will be asked to leave the building. Those individuals who are asked to leave the building should notify their employer and comply with CDC guidelines as well as their employer’s protocol before returning. In compliance with ADA and EEOC regulations, Vornado will not store any personal information for anyone undergoing this protocol.

The craftsmen who create these countertops and integrated basins are skilled artisans who work with modern materials. In this video, a cement resin composite is installed over a sealed marine grade plywood structure and a solid surface composite sink. With the use of trowels and floating tools, the resulting surface has the look of authentic troweled cement. Hand-applied finishing techniques include fine sanding, honing and sealing. Though largely hand-crafted, the final product is surprisingly high-tech and remarkably low-maintenance – lightweight, durable, flexible, and impervious to cracks or stains. Hastings is proud to offer and showcase these artisan-made countertops on its popular Urban vanity collection.
Hastings Tile & Bath has been at the forefront of design, providing architectural products to the building industry, beginning with pavers for large-scale installations such as the walkways that surround New York City’s Central Park. In the 1970s, we began importing tile and bath products from Italy for the high-end home furnishings industry. Today, Hastings products are sold through leading bath and kitchen dealers across the country, including our own 4,600 square foot showroom in the Architects & Designers Building in New York City.
Known for providing a full range of innovative and functional products to architects and designers, Hastings Tile & Bath continues its long tradition of sourcing striking tile and plumbing products from Europe. Our collections have included some of the finest names in the industry: Fornasetti, Philippe Starck, Andrée Putnam and Gio Ponti. We are also the exclusive importer and distributor of the Arne Jacobsen designed, multiple award-winning VOLA line in the United States.
Walter has been with Hastings since March 7, 1988! A true renaissance employee, Walter has performed virtually every position with the company; paving, warehousing, customer and tech services (each capping off in a management role), regional sales manager and now sales coordinator. His support to the staff, the dealers, the architects, designers and end users cannot be overestimated. He derives satisfaction from helping everyone with whom he comes in contact. At trade shows you will find Walter happily engaged in conversation with everyone who wants to learn more about Hastings’ collections.
Favorite product(s): There has been a long list of products (since we are always searching for the latest and greatest European designs) that has passed through Hastings over my many years but one item has been consistent most of our furniture is the VOLA HV1.The fact that it’s 50+ years old and still looks good on just about every sink we’ve put it on. Timeless.
Something co-workers would be surprised to know: Walter says he’s an open book – but we all think he’s our version of the “World’s Most Interesting Man”.
