Vanity considerations for your bathroom remodel

Double vanity

Bathrooms are relatively smaller spaces, and vanity considerations given below maximize space utilization and ensure optimum benefits. Vanities provide storage, enable sanitation, and can also hide the plumbing.

Vanity Considerations Based on Use

When starting a bathroom renovation, consider a double sink vanity if you and your spouse or partner are going to use the sink simultaneously in the morning. More storage and counter space are a consideration if you’re particular about makeup and coiffuring.

Popular Vanity Sizes

Standard vanity sizes include 24”,36”,48”,60”, and 72”. Factors that influence size include the number of vanities, storage, existing plumbing, and available space.

Vanity Height and Depth

A comfortable height for easy use is a vital vanity consideration. The average size is between 33”-35”. A depth of 22” is standard, though it can depend on use and personal choice.

Vanity Types

There are six commonly installed vanity types which are the following.

Pedestal – Easy to install and space savers, pedestal vanities have only a sink and basin with no countertop or storage.

Vanity Materials

  • Solid Plywood – Lightweight, moisture resistant, easy to shape, and cheaper than solid wood, is a popular option.
  • Particle Board – An inexpensive composite material that can feature wood, laminate, or melamine veneers for diverse looks.
  • Marble – It’s a smooth, durable, and attractive surface. Marble costs more and may require regular cleaning.
