Choosing the Right Vanity for your Bathroom

The vanity is not the most attractive part in reconditioning your bathroom but choosing the right one can make a difference. So knowing the way to select the right materials, size and style for your vanity that is suitable for your bathroom and will function for your needs is essential. Read and learn more of the following:

Placement

Find a good spot for your vanity that will not hinder the traffic flow in the bathroom, or obstruct the bathroom door or the door swing of the shower. Take note if the areas around are accessible for cleaning and if there is enough space for foot traffic if the vanity doors are open. Moreover, remember that the vanity has a lot to do with the bathroom’s function, and create a space around it for proper function.

Changing the plumbing around for the installation of a vanity can be very expensive. Placing the vanity at a distance from other bath fixtures is a higher cost for rough plumbing. Look for any plumbing services in Sydney to deal with plumbing issues.

Materials

A humid, wet and busy environment is the usual place for vanities and choosing the right materials for your vanity that can withstand this kind of environment is very important. Among the materials suitable for a durable vanity are laminates, wood veneers and thermofoil. Wood should be sealed and lacquered well but it doesn’t guarantee that it will not get any damage when exposed to water for a long time. Also consider the durability of your vanity top and opt to easy-to-clean grout.

Storage

In making a decision about the amount of storage you will need, consider the things you really use. Make an inventory of the things you store in your existing vanity and organize everything based on what you need to have in reach and you just need to have nearby. You may consider hanging vanities with drawers for a good amount of storage. In case you cannot change your tiny vanity cabinet, you may install additional cabinets that rest on the counters.

Size

Basically, the size of the vanity follows with size of your bathroom. At the same time, consider evaluating the lifestyle and things you demand for a vanity. This will give you a clear picture of how big your vanity should be. It is recommended to get started with a vanity that is at least 21 inches deep and 24 inches wide.
