How to Choose the Right Vanity for Your Bathroom Remodel

When your bathroom is being remodeled, every touch can make a difference on the overall look. However, this applies especially to your bathroom vanity. Your vanity is often the center focus of your bathroom. It’s where you get ready for the day and where you look when you step out of the shower. So it’s essential to have the right vanity. Here are some of our suggestions to finding the perfect vanity for you.

Consider Size

First, take into account the dimensions of your bathroom, especially the wall on which you want to place the vanity. No one wants to purchase what they think is the perfect vanity only to find that it’s too large. Take into consideration, too, how much space you want your vanity to take up. Are you going for a more minimalist look, or something lavish and elegant? This could make the difference between sleek and slim open shelves or rich wooden cabinets, as well as the scope of the mirror.

Consider Lifestyle

Do you live alone or do you share your bathroom with a roommate, sibling, or significant other? If you live alone, you have no need for double sinks, but often those cohabiting with someone else prefer to have their own space. How long does it take you to get ready for work in the morning, and what goes into that process? If you have a more involved getting ready process, you may need more vanity storage space than if you’re a more laid back, brush-your-hair-and-go type.

Consider the Room

What kind of bathroom are you remodeling? Is this a master bathroom or a guest bathroom? A half-bath or more of a powder room? Powder rooms are actually designed for the sole purpose of the vanity, so you won’t need as much counter space as you might in a full bathroom. Your guest bathroom probably need not have as expansive a vanity as your master bathroom. In fact, here it might be better to use drawers or storage bins rather than full cabinets for the vanity, so as to save room in the bathroom.Do you know the perfect vanity for your bathroom remodel?
