Tips for Choosing a Bath Vanity

Updated: Dec 30, 2020

Vanities are a big part of every bathroom and are often the focal point of this particular space. For this reason, it is important that you choose a suitable one so that it fits perfectly into your bathroom in terms of its size, functionality and aesthetics.



If you’re looking for the perfect bathroom vanity, the following tips will help:

  1. Think of who will be using it and how. You must consider all of the people that will be using the vanity as well as the types of things they will be using it for. If it is for a couple, they may require a vanity with a double sink so that they can both use a sink at the same time while getting ready in the mornings. You should also consider the use of the vanity because someone who likes to do their makeup and hair, for example, would need additional counter space and storage to accommodate their products and hair tools.

  2. Figure out where the plumbing is located. This is very important because it will dictate where your vanity is going to be placed unless you want to change this aspect, which would cost a lot more. If you’re planning on leaving your plumbing as is, it will be a determining factor in terms of the location and style of your vanity.

  3. Figure out the size of your vanity by looking at potential obstacles. Certain bathroom designs can be changed but doors and walls cannot, so make sure you consider these aspects when looking at different vanities as they can limit your options. Make sure you factor in the way in which your door swings, whether you have a shower door or curtain, whether you want the vanity to be close or far away from your toilet and the overall flow of traffic. A great trick is to walk around your bathroom to visualize the different aspects and get a feel of the space because this will help you select the right vanity based on your placement and size limitations.

  4. Consider the amount of storage you require. Vanities come with a number of benefits, including more storage space, which is a huge bonus. While this aspect is exciting, you also have to be realistic about your space so that you get a vanity that is suitable for it. While you will get storage most vanities, certain bathrooms may require some compromise and you may not be able to get as many drawers or cabinets as you like, so keep that in mind. Knowing your needs and your limitations will help you select a design that works.
