Bathroom Vanity. Wednesday , August 15th , 2018 - 12:15:51 PM
Number of Sinks. You also need to consider how many sinks you want. Double basin vanities are quite possible and convenient in a master bathroom. However, if you don’t have the room for a two-sink vanity, you’re options are automatically limited. So before you decide on one sink or two, measure the amount of space you have in your bathroom for a vanity and then shop around and compare sizes of single and double bathroom vanities to see what your bathroom can handle.
Make sure you choose a vanity of the right height. Most bathroom vanities are built at a standard height of 30 inches. Fine if you’re the standard height, but if you’re particularly short then you may find that the height of the vanity is too high for you, and if you’re tall you may well have to stoop to clean your teeth. I suggest you spend some time in your local store looking at vanity units to decide what height is right for you. Similarly you need to consider the height of the bathroom mirror above the bathroom vanity for the same reason.
Companies are aware that the demand for unique bathroom vanities is huge. So, many of them make special limited quantity of a particular style of vanity. These are generally designer vanities that come at a hefty price. If your budget allows you to buy an expensive vanity, then it is recommended that you check options in these vanities out.
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.
