Bathroom Vanity. Wednesday , August 15th , 2018 - 12:58:16 PM
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.
Shop Smart - Keep Everything in Mind. When it comes shopping and purchasing a bathroom vanity, you need to keep your options open but consider the space you have and the existing style of your bathroom. The more details you consider, the better your chances will be of selecting the perfect vanity for your bathroom.
Remember, with bathroom vanities, you should ideally not buy something ordinary, as a run-of-the-mill vanity would hardly enhance your bathroom space. A funky unique bathroom vanity is necessary if you want to give your bathroom that extra edge over the rest. To ensure that you end up with a vanity that is unique and ultra-chic, you will have to do a little hard work. Actually, you can do this in two ways: by researching well or putting your creative energies to use.
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.
