Storage and Beauty
If your bathroom is large enough to accommodate a proper vanity, it will increase the storage capacity you have to work with. Bathroom Vanities come in all shapes and sizes, from clean and contemporary styles to ornate antiques transformed for a sink vanity. Vanities serve several purposes.
For a standard build bathroom, they are functional first. They give you a place to put your toothbrush and other toiletries, they support the lavatory sink, they serve as storage and they usually hide the plumbing underneath.
Vanities are also, for better or worse, the largest piece of furniture in the room, drawing immediate attention. In a custom designed space, the vanity is an integral focal point tying the theme or style together. If it is aesthetically pleasing to you, this is fine, but if it is an eyesore, this will not be a room you want to be in.
Bathroom Vanities can be replaced with ease if they are freestanding furniture pieces. Built-ins are replaceable also, but it takes more work to get them out and prepare for a new unit. For a new build, choose a vanity fitting the theme of the room, then make sure it fits! You will need it to be a comfortable height, about 34-36 inches, and wide enough to accommodate your storage and daily functions. The easiest way to do this is to find a pre-built vanity that is complete with a countertop, faucet and plumbing cutouts in the back.
Be sure to consult with a professional contractor when you find the unit of your dreams. Bathroom Vanities can make or break your special space, so choose wisely!
