Phyllis Carol. Bathroom Vanity. August 28th , 2018.
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.
Secondly, remember you need to use your bathroom vanity as well as look at it. Choose a great looking timber color for your vanity by all means, but make sure that you also consider what you need to do with it. A vanity is used for storage in particular, and so you need to think about what you want to store and how much space you need. Then buy a vanity that does what you want it to do as well as looking good.
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.
There are not specific standards for the height of a bathroom vanity. However taking the time to consider who the primary users of the bathroom will be, is helpful in selecting the correct height. If the bathroom is to be used by family members, and guests, choosing the more conventional 32 to 34 inch cabinet is sensible. Remember, cabinets that are taller than standard will be difficult for a child to manage, and anything lower than standard will be uncomfortable for most adults. Today’s trend in bathrooms is to have taller bathroom vanity furniture, more similar in height to those cabinets that are found in any kitchen. However, it is your bathroom, so making it work for your specific needs, while incorporating your desired style elements, is really the most important factor.
