It is not always easy to choose the right bathroom vanity, and there are many factors to think about and important questions to ask yourself when you start shopping for it. This is especially true if you are creating a new environment in important rooms of your place – whether you are looking for a bathroom vanity that works in a small space or you are updating a spacious master bathroom.
Here are some suggestions that will guide you through the process of finding the right vanity for your space.
Before making a purchase, consider how much counter space and storage space you would like to have in your bathroom and how much you will need – it is really important to make sure to note the dimensions of the area where your bathroom vanity will be installed, and pass it on to your renovation team upon planning.
Select a spot for your vanity that won´t disturb with your bathroom´s traffic flow or block the bathroom door or shower door. Another good thing to note is if the area is accessible for cleaning, the doors vanity can open and the space close to the vanity is enough for foot traffic.
