Phyllis Carol. Bathroom Vanity. August 25th , 2018.
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.
Consider the shape of vanity you need. Should it go along a wall, for example, or do you need a corner unit? Sometimes either will work and you need to decide exactly your requirements. And don’t forget that you also need to make sure that there is space for the doors to open properly. Many people have purchased vanities only to find that the door will only open half way before it contacts a wall, or a shower, for example.
Pedestals Sinks: Pedestal sinks made out of granite are apt for classy bathrooms and can look both eclectic and vintage with the right choice of bathroom vanities. Granite sinks go well with any kind of pedestals and are timeless in style. Different hues of granite sinks are also available so that the bathroom vanities can tie together with different color schemes. There is also more choices in terms of choosing the pedestals. Pedestals themselves can be of different designs and shapes and be decorative. Usually, people like having ornate pedestals that can be wall mounted to save the space in the bathroom. Ornate pedestals add elements of decoration in the bathroom without crowding the space and they come with the sink fitted on top.
Size of the vanity is also critical. I’ve talked about height, but you also need to consider width as well. You have a certain amount of space available, and no more. So make sure that your vanity takes up the required space well. Don’t buy one too short, or too long. Too short looks wrong and too long can be a real problem. I’ve seen people who’ve bought a vanity that is too long and put it beside the toilet so that it’s difficult to sit on the toilet.
