So finally, you have decided to renovate your bathroom. But, choosing the right bathroom vanity is getting a bit difficult. Isn’t, it? Do not worry; by the end of the post, you will be in a good space to make a sensible decision.
Choosing the right single bathroom vanity is not an easy task. There are so many decisions to be made that one found himself in Catch-22. So, let’s make it easier. Here are the five tips to choose single bathroom vanity.
The first decision you need to make is, choose the right size of vanity. If you do not get it right, even the most expensive of vanities will look flat. Size of the vanity depends on the space available in the bathroom. You do not want your bathroom doors to keep hitting the vanity cabinet. Neither have you wanted bathroom vanity to be an obstacle in navigation in the rest of the bathroom. So, choose the size of vanity ensuring all these things. Generally, the width of single bathroom vanity is less than 60 inches for a single bathroom. However, it can vary from 20 inches to 60 inches depending upon the size and space available in the bathroom.
The next thing you need to decide is the mounting style of the bathroom vanity. A single bathroom vanity unit can either mounted on the wall or free stand on the floor. Wall mounted vanity is mounted on the wall and consumes less space whereas freestanding vanity stands on the floor with legs. Choose the mounting style that you love, and it should resonate with the rest of the design of the bathroom.
This is a very important decision to make. Various materials are used for manufacturing vanity cabinet ranges from rustic wood to particleboard, medium density fiberboard (MDF), solid wood, and acrylic. Rustic wood vanity or solid wood vanity is built to last for the lifetime and easy to maintain. On the other hand, vanity cabinet made of particle board, MDF or acrylic is less durable and prone to moisture but cheaper than the rustic vanity cabinet. So the choice of material depends on the budget. More you put in, more quality you will get.
There is no wrong choice in this section. Choose the style of sink that you love the most. Various sink styles include under mount, vessel, drop-in, and integrated sink. Each style has its unique charm and characteristics. However, the vessel sink is quite often seen in modern bathrooms.
Choosing a right countertop is as important as choosing the right design, color, size, and material of the vanity cabinet. Stone countertop gives the perfect finishing to the vanity cabinet. Granite and quartz countertops are the most popular ones because of its strength, durability, and looks. But, as they are porous stone, they need the occasional application of sealant. Cheaper alternative like Acrylic countertop is also available, but they are very rarely used because of its artificial looks.
So, these are the five tips that can help you to choose the right single bathroom vanity for your bathroom.
