If space allows, you may want to opt for a 36-inch bathroom vanity size instead. Most single sink vanities measure anywhere from 36 to 48 inches, and the extra width gives you a little more elbow room and storage space. The extra counter top space comes in handy for toiletries and hair tools. While larger sizes are generally more comfortable, it’s always best to refer to your room’s dimensions to guide your final decision. Keep in mind that you’ll need to allow for an extra inch worth of counter top space, both width and depth, if you’re buying a 36-inch vanity without a top.
Pro Tip: The standard bathroom vanity is around 32 inches tall, but sizes range from 30 to 36 inches. If you’re choosing a design for a kid’s bathroom, opt for a vanity that stands around 30 to 32 inches high. (Step stools can help little ones access these heights much easier.) Otherwise, a 36- inch tall vanity tends to work better for adults, sometimes called “comfort height”, and can prove especially beneficial in reducing back strain. Ideally, because children grow, you will go with the comfort height and just use a step stool for kids when they need it. It is a better long-term choice.
