Selecting The Best Vanity For Your Bathroom

When planning a bathroom renovation, homeowners spend lots of time evaluating the best plumbing fixtures, color scheme and flooring.  One of the more overlooked bathroom features that definitely deserves more attention is the vanity.  Making this an afterthought can wreak havoc because it is such an integral part of your bathroom’s footprint.  Here’s what you need to know before committing to one.

Positioning:  Where you place your vanity deeply impacts the ease at which you can navigate your bathroom.  It’s important to consider its proximity to your shower door, toilet and bathroom door so that the vanity does not interfere with your ability to use them.  Also, take into account if the placement of your vanity gives you ample space to comfortably stand in front of it while doing tasks such as shaving or applying make-up.bathroom

Freestanding vs. Built-In: If space is of a concern in a bathroom, a free-standing vanity is the way to go.  However if the bathroom is roomy, go with a built-in so that you’ve got the ability to have storage space within the vanity and on its countertop.  Make the most out of an enlarged bathroom by choosing a vanity with dual sinks.  If you want to make a room appear larger, a floating vanity is a great way to do this.

Height:  If you haven’t shopped for a vanity in quite some time, you may be surprised to learn that they are now trending taller than in the past.  Functions such as washing your hands & brushing your teeth require we to bend down which can put strain on your body.  Raising the vanity’s height makes this less problematic.  Do know that if the vanity is being installed in a bathroom that will be utilized primarily by children, it’s perfectly acceptable to invest in a shorter one.bathroom

Plumbing: When budgeting for a new vanity, don’t forget to include the cost of hiring a plumber.  This ensures that your vanity not only looks beautiful, but functions properly as well.
