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.
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.
Your vanity is also a cabinet, so it’s the place where all those little things like the soap and the toothpaste are housed, as well as all those other things that really ought to be out of view as well. And finally your vanity can also the basis for your bathroom mirror, although usually the mirror isn’t part of the bathroom vanity itself. So your choice of bathroom vanity can be an important one as the vanity is the centerpiece of your bathroom. Here’s a few tips for choosing a great vanity for your bathroom so that it does exactly what you want it to do.
Remember, with bathroom vanities, you should ideally not buy something ordinary, as a run-of-the-mill vanity would hardly enhance your bathroom space. A funky unique bathroom vanity is necessary if you want to give your bathroom that extra edge over the rest. To ensure that you end up with a vanity that is unique and ultra-chic, you will have to do a little hard work. Actually, you can do this in two ways: by researching well or putting your creative energies to use.
