The bathroom vanity is one of the most essential structures of your bathroom, so upgrading it to a more modern and stylish one can definitely make a statement. Also, showers and toilets have a more standard look, and you can personalise your vanity based on your envisioned design.
A typical vanity will be composed of a faucet, cabinets, mirror, lighting, and sink for all your personal care routines. So, if you want to purchase or upgrade your bathroom vanity, you will need to balance functionality and design.
Here are some things to consider:
What type of vanity cabinets you need?
Most vanities will have several base cabinets, though you can add more space with a large vanity desk base. However, you only three or four cabinets in your bathroom vanity. Also, some vanities will have a set of cabinets included, but others will not, so buying your own cabinets will allow greater flexibility in customising the look and feel of your bathroom.
Can I use kitchen cabinets for bathroom cabinets?
Kitchen cabinets can crossover in your bathroom, but you will need to make the right adjustments. It is important for you to determine the right dimensions because kitchen cabinets are typically taller and wider and may not fit in your bathroom. Sometimes you will need to remove the topmost drawer of your kitchen cabinet and sealing them is a must since it will protect them from moisture once they are inside the bathroom.
What about the sink?
There are different types of sinks, and it will all depend on your bathroom space. Single sink bathroom vanities are commonly used for small bathrooms. If you have a bigger bathroom, you might want to consider buying a double sink since multiple people can use it at the same time.
What is the ideal size of your vanity?
Before you purchase a vanity, it is important to know the exact dimensions or size of your bathroom because the size of your vanity will depend on that measurement. If you already have a vanity and you just want to replace it with a new one, you can just measure the old and make sure you buy a vanity with the same dimensions.
Lastly, be sure to map out and create a plan before you launch your remodelling project, so you don’t have to worry about costly restructuring.
