Choosing Bathroom Vanaties
Bathroom vanaties combine a sink and storage space to create an ideal setting. Available in a wide range of styles and finishes, vanities not only provide function but are a visual anchor in the design of a room. Updating your bathroom vanity is an easy way to upgrade the look of your space. Adding a freestanding cabinet will provide much needed storage and add value to your home. However, be sure to choose a vanity with the appropriate amount of storage space and be sure to consider the placement of the vanity before committing to a new one.
Small spaces can be fitted with a pedestal sink, but for larger bathrooms, built-in vanaties will be a better choice. They generally offer more countertop space and more storage space. When choosing a sink, remember to choose between drop-in or undermount. Drop-in sinks have edges that rest on the floor. Vessel sinks sit on top of the counter. Wall-mounted vanaties are a good option for bathrooms with little space because they will allow you to place a stool in front of them.
If your space is limited, you can choose a smaller vanity. Darla DeMorrow’s 15-inch vanity is the perfect example of a vanity for a smaller bathroom. While a narrow vanity might seem unwieldy in a small space, it still provides plenty of storage. The length of the countertop will also vary depending on your decorator. Some decorators prefer to install a countertop that extends from the wall, while others prefer a countertop that is just inches long.
