If you are looking to replace your old bathroom vanity or wants to buy a new one for your bathroom, make sure that you know what to look for. Try to visit BMS and other online and local shops to see the choices available for you but before doing so, read more about the important things you have to consider when buying a bathroom vanity:
- Consider your space. Before going out to buy your bathroom vanity or carting it online, make sure that you have measured the space you have in your bathroom. Think about the counter and storage space you need for your daily routine. Decide where the vanity will be installed and measure the dimension of the space allotted for the fixture. The depth and width are two factors that might be limited by the space but you can be free when it comes to choosing the vanity’s height.
- Consider the number of sinks you need. If there is no problem about the space in your bathroom then choosing the number of sinks would be up to you. Single vanities are the most common and come with only one sink. This is ideal for small bathroom space. If you want to have enough counter space, choose the one with large width. Double vanities, on the other hand, are ideal for shared bathrooms or one used by the entire family. The width of the vanity must not be smaller than 48 inches.
- Decide on the mounting options – free standing, wall-mounted and corner-mounted. The standard is the free standing and it is the most common as well. If you want more storage space, pick out this one. Small bathrooms would be perfect with a wall-mounted vanity since it hangs and does not occupy floor space. The corner-mounted is designed to be installed in the corner of the bathroom thus occupying only very limited space.
- Choose one the different sinks available – undermount, self-rimming and vessel. If you have no idea of how these sinks look like, you can visit BMS online for a good visual.
