If you are renovating your bathroom then choosing to have a double sink vanity is a viable choice for you. With different styles of vanities, there has to be one that fits your taste. Here are some things you may want to consider.
Your bathroom routines have now become your own oasis. By adding an extra sink you now have room to yourself. It makes those Monday morning rituals a dream. The person washing their hands now doesn’t need to speed through while dodging the toothpaste from the person brushing their teeth. No matter the actions you will no longer be moving at someone else’s pace.
Adding another sink requires more space. Will there be enough room for two bodies and two sinks? You will have a sink to yourself but you might still be wrestling for space. Another thing to consider is the counter space. By having no space between the sinks you will now be fighting for not only space around you but space for your things.
If you don’t have space and are still keen on having two sinks you could always expand up and down. Building shelves can provide that extra counter space you are looking for. Some vanities with surface-mounted sinks can also provide a little space for a soap dispenser and supplies up.
So you have decided on getting a double sink vanity and have measured out the room, something to consider is the cost. Double the sink means double the plumbing; leading to an increase in cost. It may cost more however you might want to consider what your home will be worth after a couple years. This could add value to your home as many other people prefer this setup than a single sink. In the end, it will benefit you in every way and someone else if you sell your home.

Choose the right vanity that suits your space
-Replace your Bulky Cabinets and go for Chic and Customized Vanities
Not only do furniture styled vanities give a glamorous and chic look for your space, they also take up less space than bulky cabinets. In recent years, their popularity has been increasing. They are affordable, yet functionable.
Mirror and brightness
-Use of Mirrors – Siema LED mirrors Vancouver
The reflections of mirrors trick our eyes, they make the space seemingly bigger. Using more than one mirror is a great way to give the illusion of more space in your washroom. For instance, double mirrors tend to give the space a never-ending appearance.
Siema LED mirrors increase the overall brightness of your washroom. The brightness effectively opens up more space.

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.
Types of montage
There are a number of different options for mounting.
Free standing – this is the most popular and means the vanity is seated on the floor and attached to the wall. This kind of vanity helps a lot if you need storage space.
Floating – this vanity is wall-mounted and in the last years this type of vanity become popular because the designs are modern and contemporary. This kind of vanity saves floor space and is really good for small bathrooms. It also gives you the option to store things underneath it.
Open space – this kind of vanity has visible storage space without door panels or drawers covering them, this vanity gives you a fun, spa-like environment.
Variation of sinks
During this process, it’s important to consider vanity style, counter space and style of the bathroom.
Undermount sink – the sink is designed to be under the counter for more space and easy clean up.
Self-rimming – this kind of sink is resting in an opening counter or vanity, it is called a drop-in-sink too.
Vessel, usually this sink just sits on top of the counter surface and doesn’t need any special installation. It is very simple, and options range from glass, all the way to mosaic.

So you finally decided to get a new contemporary bathroom vanity. Maybe you are doing a renovation, maybe you just think it’s time to get a new vanity. Either way, we want to help you. Because the vanity is such an important part of the bathroom, we know that you want to make the right choice. It needs to look good, it needs to be resistant, it needs to fit just right with the decoration. So, before you choose, think about these aspects:
That is the first question to be asked: how much space does your bathroom have? You need to match the size of your new contemporary bathroom vanity with the space available. The size of the vanity can also give you other possibilities, like having a double sink vanity or how much counter space it can have. If your bathroom is small, a wall-mounted vanity makes the space looks modern, bigger and optimized.
The placement of the vanity is usually limited by the plumbing. Well, unless you are doing a complete renovation of the bathroom and are willing to spend a lot of money to change the plumbing. However, thinking about placement is still important when choosing a contemporary bathroom vanity for a few reasons. First, you must remember that the vanity should not get in the way of the bathroom traffic. Second, note that the vanity needs the space around it as well, so you can open and close doors and drawers. Third, it needs to look good after you install it.
What do you want to store in the vanity? Choosing a contemporary bathroom vanity gives you freedom to address your storage needs. How many drawers you think you would need? How big are the items that you need to keep in the vanity? Siema offers a wide variety of styles with different storage options. Be sure to check them out before deciding which style fits your taste.
Choosing a vanity with the right materials goes beyond the visual style. It is great to have a beautiful bathroom, and a good looking vanity will add the right touch to your home. You can try to define your taste from the many different styles available. Do you like glass or prefer a lacquered finish? Do you like the wooden finish or prefer a colourful one? Think about the hardware as well, as they complement the style. However, remember that the bathroom is a humid environment. It is really important to choose high quality materials that you can trust for a long time.
We are sure that keeping these considerations in mind will help you decide on your new contemporary bathroom vanity. With so many options available, it is easy to find yourself a little lost. But don’t worry about it, you can count on our expertise as the kitchen and bath specialist in Vancouver. Come find us at 1854 West 4th Ave or contact us.

They are also called wall-mounted vanities, and they not only make the bathroom look more spacious but also allow us to comfortably place our feet under the vanity. Wall-mounted vanities come in different sizes and styles to be adapted to your space and storage necessities.
3. Integrated Sink
A very convenient and practical trend a the moment of cleaning and deciding the bathroom layout is integrated sinks. This vanities merge the sink with the countertop into one piece, giving the space a clear aesthetic. You can pick between tempered glass and ceramic integrated sinks.
4. Transitional vanities
If you don’t know what to choose between modern or antique, this is the perfect trend for you! Transitional vanities are in the middle of the two styles, thus, you will have a modern design with vintage decorative details without giving up the best from each one.
5. Furniture Style
