These seven tips will provide you with everything you need to know for selecting a new vanity that fits your space, style, and individual needs.
Selecting a new vanity for your bathroom has a myriad of benefits. Not only can it can completely revamp a space without requiring a full remodel, it can also be the gateway to extra storage and even allow for smoother morning routines. Here, we’ve culled some of our best tips for how to pick out a new bathroom vanity for just about any bathroom size.
1. Think About Proportion and Size
One of the first things to think about when selecting a new vanity for your bathroom is to consider what would be appropriate and adequate in terms of size. For instance, are you swapping out your old one because it’s too small? Are you planning to install a new vanity in a tiny powder room and need to find something small enough that would fit? While the standard widths for vanity cabinets are 24″, 30″, 36″, 48″, and 60″, you may find some in-between sizes out there, from as small as 14″ wide to over 72″ inches. The standard depth of a vanity, from front to back, is typically between 20″ and 21″, but there are certainly narrow depth options around 18″ deep.
2. Measuring Is Key
Once you’ve decided on your ideal vanity size, you should confirm that you have enough clearance around any opening doors, shower stalls, and drawers, as there is nothing worse than installing a big new vanity and not being able to open the bathroom door all the way. In fact, y may even want to take some painter’s tape and mark out the dimensions to make sure you make the right choice.
