The width of the vanity is critical. The first consideration is how wide can it be, and still fit through the bathroom door. Many bathroom vanities come pre-constructed; however, there are also expandable or collapsible vanities available. Their design allows them to be installed in any bathroom regardless of the restrictions imposed by a narrow bathroom door. The vanity door swing, and drawer size also need to be considered. A vanity door that is too wide can result in restricted space, and limited human movement. It is important to remember that there needs to be enough room for the bathroom door to open comfortably without damaging your new furniture. Door dings are unpleasant, and will happen if the space it too tight. In addition a too tight fit can create a safety hazard, that with proper planning, can be avoided.
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.
Again, this is a good time to add your personal style, you can really express yourself with bathroom vanity cabinet hardware. You can choose vanity cabinet hardware colors that complement a theme in your home or go with something unique to the bathroom. Traditionally gold has been a favorite but pewter or silver lend a more modern contemporary look of coolness.
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.
