Bathroom Vanities - Are You Ready to Upgrade?

Elevate your bathroom to a whole new level by updating or replacing the vanity (or vanities).  Since they take up so much room in what is usually a small space, bathroom vanities are often the focal point of your bathroom.  Whether your space is big or small, widely used or only occasionally, you will want to put some thought into your bath vanities and choose one that complements your space.

Whether you have a small powder room that requires a small sink with cabinet or you have a double vanity in the master bath that needs a face lift, our collection of vanity sizes and configurations provides endless solutions.

Take a good inventory of your space, your needs, your family needs then research the latest trends in magazines, idea websites, and showrooms.  You will quickly discover how a vanity in a small bathroom can add storage space or how to compare the look of a vanity with the sink incorporated into it to one with a vessel sink or an easy to clean undermount sink.

Storage is often at a premium in a bathroom…consider adding a vertical linen cabinet next to your vanity to optimize your countertop and storage spaces.  All this is just the beginning!  Organize your bathroom necessities with pull out shelves or even repurpose a pull-out kitchen spice-rack to hold lotions and potions.  If your cabinets and countertop are long with only storage space in the cabinets below, a custom countertop cabinet just might solve your space needs for jewelry, grooming aids, medications, and any other often used items.

Think countertops!  Granite, quartz, or solid surface are incredibly durable and provide lasting beauty to your new vanity.  A wide array of colors, textures, and finishes allow for exacting tastes and styles.

The defining details:  metal finishes.  Consider your metal hardware to be the jewelry on your new vanity.  Let your personal style shine through with handles and pulls that range from modern to contemporary to traditional.  Faucets, lighting and hardware in the same finishes unite to tie all the elements together allowing for a harmonious quality to your new space.

Since bathrooms are used 24/7 think about ease of use at 3am…intuitive layout, clean lines and even under-cabinet lighting help guide your way while half asleep!

Lastly, you want your bathroom vanity to be in proportion to the overall size of your bathroom as well as other bathroom fixtures.  Be certain to carefully measure the area where you want your bath vanity; at the same time, consider the placement of the surrounding fixtures.  If a door is nearby, open and close it to make sure its path will clear.  Single vanities are ideal for a small powder room or guest bath, whereas a double sink vanity is preferable for a multiple user or master bath.

Happy Grooming!
