Bathroom Vanity. Wednesday , August 15th , 2018 - 12:16:01 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.
You can also get your vanity custom built. Though this can be a bit expensive, this option would ensure that you get a vanity exactly according to your requirements. You would also be able to go all creative with this option and create something absolutely unique. For a truly unique vanity, you can do something else as well-look for furniture that can be turned to a vanity with requisite fittings and modifications. For instance, you can go to an antique store and buy something royal that you might be able to turn into a unique and regal bathroom vanity.
Size of the vanity is also critical. I’ve talked about height, but you also need to consider width as well. You have a certain amount of space available, and no more. So make sure that your vanity takes up the required space well. Don’t buy one too short, or too long. Too short looks wrong and too long can be a real problem. I’ve seen people who’ve bought a vanity that is too long and put it beside the toilet so that it’s difficult to sit on the toilet.
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.
