Choose the Right Vanity For Your Bathroom

Choose the Right Vanity For Your Bathroom

By Kate Reggev – 

These seven tips will provide you with everything you need to know for selecting a new vanity that fits your space, style, and individual needs.

Selecting a new vanity for your bathroom has a myriad of benefits. Not only can it can completely revamp a space without requiring a full remodel, it can also be the gateway to extra storage and even allow for smoother morning routines. Here, we’ve culled some of our best tips for how to pick out a new bathroom vanity for just about any bathroom size.

1. Think About Proportion and Size

One of the first things to think about when selecting a new vanity for your bathroom is to consider what would be appropriate and adequate in terms of size. For instance, are you swapping out your old one because it’s too small?

2. Measuring Is Key

Once you’ve decided on your ideal vanity size, you should confirm that you have enough clearance around any opening doors, shower stalls, and drawers, as there is nothing worse than installing a big new vanity and not being able to open the bathroom door all the way.

3. Evaluate Your Sink Needs

Sinks—like the vanity cabinet itself—come in a range of sizes, depths, shapes, and types. Your vanity cabinet may require a specific type of sink, or it may even come with a sink.

4. Review the Number of Sinks You Need

It is also important to consider the number of sinks, because more isn’t always better.

5. Prioritize Storage or Easy Cleaning

The two main ways of mounting a bathroom vanity are either freestanding, wall-mounted, or corner-mounted.

6. Examine Your Existing Plumbing

If you’re installing a new vanity, you or your plumber will likely be doing some new plumbing work.

7. Don’t Neglect the Faucet

Finally, it’s important to remember that faucets aren’t always included in a new vanity, which may require a bit of research and coordination. If you do have to purchase the vanity or sink separately, take note of the number of faucet holes, how far apart they are, and how they should be installed.
