Selecting the Perfect Bathroom Vanity

Posted by Daniel Edelman on

Selecting the perfect vanity for your bathroom involves several key points you'll want to consider. From style to faucet type, we've pulled together some categories that will get you on the right track.

 

STYLE

Determining your style is a great place to start when you're looking for a vanity piece. Whether you prefer traditional, transitional or contemporary looks, thinking about this in advance will help narrow down your search.[/caption]

 

TYPE

The next category to consider is what type of vanity you want. Looking for something easy to clean underneath? A floating wall-mounted piece would be great.  Is storage a priority? If so, perhaps a furniture piece is best. If you have accessories or towels you want to display, a piece with open-shelving is a fun choice.[/caption]

 

FAUCET

After you've found a vanity you love, decide what type of faucet you'll be installing. From single-hole to 8" widespread, knowing what type in advance will be helpful since it will coincide with your vanity top.[/caption]

 

SINK SHAPEAlong with faucets, choosing a sink shape is important to do before finalizing countertops. This way, the countertop can be designed to fit the sink you love.[/caption]

 

A few other factors to consider:

  • Size: Many vanity pieces are offered in multiple sizes ranging from 18" to 60" wide. Measure your bathroom space before you begin looking at vanity pieces.
  • Countertop: There are several vanity top materials in the bath industry today: granite, stone, glass, cultured marble, china, and more. Ask your Showroom Sales Consultant what options are available for the vanity you select.
  • Hardware: Jazzing up your cabinet hardware in the bathroom is a great way to customize your space. Manufacturers like Omnia Industries, Top Knobs and Atlas have unique pieces that will add depth to your design.
