Bathroom Vanity. Wednesday , August 15th , 2018 - 10:25:59 AM
Bathrooms are not just utilities these days and they have become a more relaxing place than just a place to go to with everyday requirements. Bathrooms can be designed beautifully by using top-of-the-order bathroom vanities and making them spa-like and enjoyable. Bathrooms can be easily redesigned as well. They can be updated by getting a new bathroom vanity and redesigning the tiles and paint. There are many different vanities to choose from, to fulfill varying needs of every home owner. Bathrooms can be designed in many different styles with fixtures ranging from modern, classic, and vintage. Bathroom vanities also vary by sizes depending upon the size of the bathroom being modeled. Some different vanities that add elegance to the bathroom are vessel, pedestal and vanity sinks.
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.
A really simple way to update your bathroom without doing a full remodel, and without spending a lot of money, is to replace your bathroom vanity. Bathroom vanities can cost as little as $100 (depending on the size you need), up to a couple thousand depending on what your tastes and budget are. I am going to talk about several different options that are available for different budget levels to help you get the bathroom of your dreams.
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.
