Phyllis Carol. Bathroom Vanity. August 23rd , 2018.
If you are looking for something a little bit more modern, one of the hottest remodeling trends is the Euro Vanity. The euro vanity is identifiable by the protruding sink bowl in the front, and downward curving doors. Most vanities are sold as a kit with the sink bowl included. These can also be found as pre-assembled units in the store, or as rta bathroom vanities on-line. While cabinet itself is usually not as deep as your traditional vanities, it still offers storage space below the sink. Most companies will offer 3 basic finishes- white, oak, and cherry, but you can occasionally find some unique finishes if you search hard enough. If you are going for a more modern look in the rest of your house, this is a great way to bring the same design features into your bathroom.
Do our homework first and work out your exact requirements for your vanity for your bathroom. Space, storage requirements, height, width, color, mirror and more. It all needs to be thought about before you start buying. Then you’ll get the exact bathroom vanity that will work for you. And don’t spend a fortune on your vanity either, with the advent of online shopping there are now a number of ways to make sure you buy yourself a great bathroom vanity at a hot price. There are many ways to find a discount bathroom vanity online, so make sure you surf a little before you buy.
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.
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.
