Choosing a bathroom vanity
Choosing the right bathroom vanity is not as straightforward as one would think. It is important to consider your reasons for wanting a new vanity.
Appearance of your new vanity is certainly important, but also consider how you are going to use it also.
For example, consider who is going to use the bathroom. If the bathroom will be used by two people who may use a sink at the same time, it is likely a good idea to install a vanity with double sinks instead of one.
Of course, this will increase the size of the vanity considerably. However, if the vanity will be used by you only, the upside is that you can spend more on style and features.
Additionally, if you are installing a vanity in a guest bathroom or powder room, this can significantly affect your decision making in terms of style and size of the vanity.
How you are going to use your vanity is also an important consideration. If you or someone else will be using the vanity to do makeup and hair, then you may want to consider a vanity that has more counter space and storage options.
When you install or replace a vanity, it is important to make a note of the location of the plumbing, since this is where the vanity will be located.
If you are doing a complete renovation of your bathroom and moving the plumbing, then make sure you take that into consideration. Moving plumbing in a bathroom can be costly and extend the duration of the project.
The plumbing in your bathroom can also have a say in the type of vanity you can choose.
Many bathrooms have plumbing that comes through the floor and if your bathroom has this, them you will be relegated to selecting a floor mounted vanity.
If you wanted a wall mounted vanity, you would have to move the plumbing around to accommodate it.
When choosing a vanity, consider the toilet and door too!
You have an endless variety of vanity styles to choose from, however, it is important to consider the location of the toilet and the swing of the bathroom door.
For example, many people do not want their bathroom door to hit their vanity when it swings open.
Also, if the vanity you choose is bigger than the previous one, make sure that it will not get too close to the toilet.
Additionally, if your shower or bath has doors that swing out, take that into account as well.
You may also want to evaluate the traffic as people come in and out of the bathroom. Will the new vanity be accommodating?
Once you know where you will place your vanity, it may be a good idea to measure the optimum space used up by the new vanity.
This may help you decide on he right type of vanity. It will also help you narrow down your available selection.
You can either make the measurements your self or ask your contractor to do it to help you decide on your new vanity.
One of the main reasons people install a new vanity is for more storage space and a place to put all of your essential bathroom goods.
Of course, the available space in the bathroom still determines how much storage space you will be able to have.
Smaller bathrooms may only be able to fit a small vanity while a larger bathroom can allow for a great deal of storage.
Also, sometimes the plumbing in the wall can take up some space inside the vanity, which will have to be considered. For example, the placement of the plumbing may prohibit a drawer in that area of the vanity. Just a point to consider.
This brings up another point. Bathroom vanities typically have either doors or drawers. Keep this in mind when selecting your new bathroom vanity. The doors swing out, so make sure they won’t hit anything, such as the toilet.
The Bathroom Sink
People can spend a lot of time choosing the right faucet for the vanity because they are a very visible part of the vanity, bu tit is also important to consider the sink too.
There are a wide variety of bowls and sinks to choose from and sometimes the type of sink or bowl you choose from can narrow down your choices for a vanity.
Some people determiner first how much counter space they want to have and use that to help choose how big of a sink they want.
There are various styles of sinks to choose from such an undermount sinks and sinks with vessels and even all in one sinks. The type of sink you choose can determine the type of vanity you select.
Materials used to make the vanity
For some people, this can be an important consideration when choosing a vanity. Again, consider the people who will be using the vanity. If someone will be applying makeup, you will want a vanity top that can repel harsh stains. Additionally, some materials are better suited to warm climates than others, so be sure to take that into account also.
