Cabinet style is also critical. Style sets the overall tone for your bathroom design. Keep in mind that a vanity cabinet that is too large or too tall will make your bathroom feel small, and cramped, however, a vanity that is too small for the space will just look lost, and out-of-place. If choosing a vessel sink, the top of the cabinet needs to be lower than standard in order to allow for the height of the sink bowl to be comfortably accessed. The use of a vessel sink however, does allow for more drawers, and under cabinet storage space. A standard recessed sink limits this available space.
Think of your current bathroom’s layout and the things that you don’t have that you would really like to have. This is where choosing bathroom vanity cabinet doors, drawers and storage needs to take place. For example many people would like extra storage in their bathroom so you can add a drawer base or perhaps you need more storage for linens, you can have a linen cabinet added. You will find a that your storage needs can be met by the large selection of bathroom vanity cabinet doors, drawers or a combination of both to meet your storage requirements.
RTA Bathroom Vanities or Pre-assembled vanities are a great way to get a fresh look for your bathroom without spending a lot of money to do so. Most of the building supply stores will carry their own line of pre-assembled bathroom vanities that you can take right out of the box and stick in your bathroom. While they are starting to add more design details into the vanity, these bathroom vanities traditionally are your basic cabinet with some detailing on the door that come in a wide range of door styles and finishes. There are also hundreds of companies that are selling RTA bathroom vanities on the web. These are usually a little bit better quality than what you will find in Home Depot or Lowes and they are usually less expensive, since they don’t have the huge overhead costs that the big stores have. The difference between the store bought vanities and the RTA vanities that you find on-line, is that you will have to assemble the RTA vanities yourself (which usually just requires a screwdriver). These are the same style cabinets that you will find in all newly built, mid-priced homes.
Make sure you choose a vanity of the right height. Most bathroom vanities are built at a standard height of 30 inches. Fine if you’re the standard height, but if you’re particularly short then you may find that the height of the vanity is too high for you, and if you’re tall you may well have to stoop to clean your teeth. I suggest you spend some time in your local store looking at vanity units to decide what height is right for you. Similarly you need to consider the height of the bathroom mirror above the bathroom vanity for the same reason.
