Camilla. Bathroom Vanity. April 08th , 2018.
Again, this is a good time to add your personal style, you can really express yourself with bathroom vanity cabinet hardware. You can choose vanity cabinet hardware colors that complement a theme in your home or go with something unique to the bathroom. Traditionally gold has been a favorite but pewter or silver lend a more modern contemporary look of coolness.
The width of the vanity is critical. The first consideration is how wide can it be, and still fit through the bathroom door. Many bathroom vanities come pre-constructed; however, there are also expandable or collapsible vanities available. Their design allows them to be installed in any bathroom regardless of the restrictions imposed by a narrow bathroom door. The vanity door swing, and drawer size also need to be considered. A vanity door that is too wide can result in restricted space, and limited human movement. It is important to remember that there needs to be enough room for the bathroom door to open comfortably without damaging your new furniture. Door dings are unpleasant, and will happen if the space it too tight. In addition a too tight fit can create a safety hazard, that with proper planning, can be avoided.
Make sure you choose a vanity of the right height. Most bathroom vanities are built at a standard height of 30 inches. Fine if you’re the standard height, but if you’re particularly short then you may find that the height of the vanity is too high for you, and if you’re tall you may well have to stoop to clean your teeth. I suggest you spend some time in your local store looking at vanity units to decide what height is right for you. Similarly you need to consider the height of the bathroom mirror above the bathroom vanity for the same reason.
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.
