Bathroom Vanity. Saturday , February 17th , 2018 - 00:56:27 AM
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.
If you are looking for something a little bit more modern, one of the hottest remodeling trends is the Euro Vanity. The euro vanity is identifiable by the protruding sink bowl in the front, and downward curving doors. Most vanities are sold as a kit with the sink bowl included. These can also be found as pre-assembled units in the store, or as rta bathroom vanities on-line. While cabinet itself is usually not as deep as your traditional vanities, it still offers storage space below the sink. Most companies will offer 3 basic finishes- white, oak, and cherry, but you can occasionally find some unique finishes if you search hard enough. If you are going for a more modern look in the rest of your house, this is a great way to bring the same design features into your bathroom.
Cabinet style is also critical. Style sets the overall tone for your bathroom design. Keep in mind that a vanity cabinet that is too large or too tall will make your bathroom feel small, and cramped, however, a vanity that is too small for the space will just look lost, and out-of-place. If choosing a vessel sink, the top of the cabinet needs to be lower than standard in order to allow for the height of the sink bowl to be comfortably accessed. The use of a vessel sink however, does allow for more drawers, and under cabinet storage space. A standard recessed sink limits this available space.
