All About Bathroom Vanities

About kitchens and baths bathroom

Retail vanities are sold pre-fabricated and ready-to-buy while custom vanities are designed to order and crafted by professionals on site.

Revamping your home’s bathroom (or bathrooms) can be a simple way to give your home a facelift. Bathroom remodeling projects often boost functionality while also creating an aesthetically pleasing and cohesive interior design, and finding the right vanity can go a long way in getting your project rolling. However, not all bathroom vanities are created equal. A vanity that is ideal for your main bathroom may not work well in other bathrooms in your home, and vice versa. This week, let’s take a deep dive into the world of bathroom vanities.

Retail vs. Custom Bathroom Vanities

Bathroom vanities can be easily broken up into retail and custom options: retail vanities are sold prefabricated and ready to install, while custom vanities are designed to order and built by professionals on-site. While custom vanities are invaluable additions to luxury bathrooms or those with awkward or unusual measurements, retail vanities are often more cost-effective and suitable for a wide range of situations. 

Consider Form and Function

When selecting a vanity for your new bathroom, you must think about what you, your family, and your guests will require from the new addition. How much storage will you need? Do you need space beneath the sink and countertop for a wheelchair? Do you have any specific height requirements? Thinking about these potential factors is crucial. Of course, the appearance of your new vanity can be nearly as important. A poorly-chosen color, finish, or pattern can make your bathroom look small or overly busy. Some materials can also be difficult to clean or prone to damage from moisture or humidity.

Bathroom Vanities are All About Storage and Plumbing

Once you’ve decided what you want from a new vanity, you’ll need to determine some of the more practical elements. Determine the locations and other plumbing specifics for your current bathroom, and make sure to account for any changes you’d like in the location of your sink, toilet, shower, etc. Ensure that your new vanity can store everything you need and want, especially if it’s a shared or busy space.
