To a lot of us, the bathroom is where we give our day a kick-start (after the morning coffee, of course!). That is why we must put some careful thought on all of the elements that we put into it. One of the most crucial parts of your bathroom is your vanity.
Finding the perfect vanity can be a bit daunting and intimidating for some, but we have made a list of some helpful tips that can make it a lot easier for you. Read on and follow this guide in choosing the right vanity.
The size of your bathroom dictates the size of your vanity. You can never succeed in squeezing in a mega vanity in a tiny bathroom! The first thing you have to consider is how big your vanity should be. Depending on which bathroom you would want to install a vanity in, size matters. Make sure to find one gives the user enough legroom. Ask yourself these questions before renovating:
- How much counter space do I need?
- Do I really need to put in 2 sinks?
- What is a good size mirror for me?
Location, location, location!
After settling on the size of the vanity, now comes another crucial point – location. When it comes to location, practicality it key. Make sure to place your vanity in a very accessible place. Check out these helpful guide questions:
- How fast to do I need to get to my vanity in the morning?
- Which part of the bathroom is the most accessible to me?
- Do I really want that mirror there?
Now comes the easy part – functionality. Nobody knows more about your needs that you do, that is why deciding on the functionality of your bathroom should be a piece of cake. Consider the following in building a bathroom vanity:
- Do I need sockets in my vanity? How much sockets do I need?
- Do I want natural lighting or artificial lighting?
- How much storage room should I have?
- Do I really need cabinets?
This is where you can let your creativity run loose. You can go as minimal or as outlandish as you wish, given you don’t go against some of the things you have already decided on earlier (size and location). There are a whole lot of design options for homeowners when it comes to their bathroom vanity. Allow your personality to show through! After all, you will be the one who has to live with it for the rest of your life (or until your next reno).
