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.
Vanity sinks: Vanity sinks can come in many different sizes to fit different spaces of vanities. Choosing bathroom vanities is mainly based on the space available in the bathroom, since maximizing the space and adding storage is also essential. Bathroom vanities that can double up as drawers with tons of storage in the bathroom are quickly becoming famous because of their efficiency and modern feel. Marble sinks and china sinks go very well with the vanities, and are mounted on top of them, just like pedestals. Small bathroom vanities can be mounted on the wall and larger vanities suit the luxury bathroom models to give it a spa-like feel. Several bathroom vanities come with different counter tops with the sink attachments. Granite countertop to match the granite sink is a popular choice in designing bathrooms that are modern, yet quaint.
Measuring your bathroom is the first step in the planning process for any remodel. This will provide you with a good feel for the location of items such as doors, windows, and electrical outlets. These fixtures are important to consider when allocating space for your bathroom vanity furniture. There needs to be enough space for the bathroom door to swing freely without hitting your newly purchased vanity. Keeping the various electrical outlets open, and available, must also be considered. There can also be restrictions in the local building codes for proper placement of vanities, proximate to electrical outlets. Accidently covering over the only outlets in a bathroom can cause additional functional problems. The proximity to other components; tub, toilet, and shower needs to be considered as well. You always want to leave enough space between each fixture to allow for easy cleaning, and for a larger individual to be comfortable in the room.
Your vanity lights can be can be used to not only enhance light around the vanity but also to illuminate the entire bathroom. Whether you should choose a large or small light over the vanity will be a personal choice determined by your design ideas and how much illumination you want. The choice of mirrors for your bathroom vanity cabinets can include framed and frame-less mirrors that are beveled or not. You can also select lighting built into the mirror, around your mirror from several styles to light up and help your new bathroom reflect your personality.
