How to Choose a Bathroom Vanity

If you’re renovating your bathroom and are looking for a place to start, take a moment to consider which fixtures are used the most in a day-to-day setting. Although the shower and the toilet are necessities to any design, the winner of the "most popular" award goes to the bathroom vanity, as it is used in multiple ways by homeowners and their guests.

Bathroom Sinks and Countertop

Because of this, choosing the right bathroom vanity that will fit in with your overall design is of the utmost importance. This isn’t always easy, as there are many options to choose from, including a variety of bath cabinets, sinks, and faucets.

Deciding on a Mounting Option

Measuring the amount of room you can dedicate toward your vanity is the first step. The amount of space you’re working with will determine if you need a free-standing, wall-mounted, or corner-mounted vanity.

  • Free–standing vanities: These are the most standard types of vanities found today, as they offer the most space around the sink, and plenty of room for additional cabinets and storage. However, those running low on space would do better to go with something smaller, as these can often take up as much room as a large furniture piece.
  • Wall–mounted vanities: Perfect for mid–sized and small bathrooms, wall-mounted vanities conserve space without having to sacrifice much in the way of storage. Although this option doesn’t offer quite as much sink space, a simple mounted medicine cabinet directly above the sink (or a useful storage box just below it) could help give you some more room for your toiletries.
  • Corner–mounted vanities: Designed to squeeze into any corner, these vanities are great space savers. However, if you need lots of room to stash your stuff, you should keep in mind that these vanities are designed with utility in mind, not storage.

Finding the Right Sink

The sink that you choose will depend on your overall design, but with thousands of different options to choose from it’ll be easy to take your time and find the right one. Ultimately, you should ask yourself two questions when browsing:

  • Is it the right style? If you want to simply give your guests a place to wash their hands, then this probably won’t matter to you. However, if style is everything, you may want to forgo a typical under–mounted in favor of an ornate self–rimming sink, or a modern looking vessel sink.
  • Is it easy–to–clean? If overall cleanliness is of more importance to you, then a simple under-mounted sink will make your life easier, as the lack of exposed edges make cleaning very simple. Self–rimming and vessel sinks, in contrast, are a little more difficult to keep clean.

Again, your choice depends on where you fall on the utility/style spectrum, but consider how the sink you choose for your vanity will fit in with your overall design before you make any big decisions.

Finishes and Smaller Touches

Finally, the finish that you choose for the fixtures on your vanity should match the rest of the fixtures in your bathroom. If you’re overhauling the entire room starting with the vanity, then take extra time to consider the various types of finishes that are out there, as they will dictate the rest of the redesign.

At the end of the day, the vanity is one of the most important aspects of any bathroom, and choosing the right one can make the difference between a design that feels cramped and cluttered, and one that flows.
