Bathroom Vanity. Tuesday , February 06th , 2018 - 12:50:28 PM
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.
As the bathroom is the room that gets used by everyone, multiple times a day, design flaws will be noticed quickly, and could be costly to remediate. So right size your vanity choice. Figuring out what size bathroom vanity furniture will best fit the space that is available is a good place to start and will go a long way in regard to your overall satisfaction when you are finished with remodeling your bathroom.
Measuring your bathroom is the first step in the planning process for any remodel. This will provide you with a good feel for the location of items such as doors, windows, and electrical outlets. These fixtures are important to consider when allocating space for your bathroom vanity furniture. There needs to be enough space for the bathroom door to swing freely without hitting your newly purchased vanity. Keeping the various electrical outlets open, and available, must also be considered. There can also be restrictions in the local building codes for proper placement of vanities, proximate to electrical outlets. Accidently covering over the only outlets in a bathroom can cause additional functional problems. The proximity to other components; tub, toilet, and shower needs to be considered as well. You always want to leave enough space between each fixture to allow for easy cleaning, and for a larger individual to be comfortable in the room.
