Whether you are renovating an existing bathroom, or building brand new, one of the decisions you will have to make is choosing the right bathroom vanity. There are many bathroom vanities and options available for builders in Langley, so make sure to follow these tips to help choose the correct one.
Choose the Size based on the space
First and foremost, you need to make sure you choose the right size. Often, the floor plan, available space and location of the plumbing of where you plan to place the vanity will serve as the determining factor for size. The length (sometimes referred to as width) of the vanity needs to fit within the space provided. Depending on the layout, you may only have the option to go with a smaller, single sink vanity, or you may be able to choose one long vanity with two sinks. You may also consider choosing two smaller vanities instead of one longer one. For the depth, make sure it is not too wide to block walking space.
Free Standing, Floating or Built-in
Another consideration when choosing a vanity is the actual style. Some vanities are built-in and look like they are a permanent part of the building, while others are attached to the walls and floating, or free standing on four legs. Choose a style that works with the decor of the rest of the bathroom, and even other rooms. Certain styles have more bathroom cabinets then others, so if storage is a concern, make sure to look for an option with lots of built in drawers or cabinets.
Choosing the right top and finishes
Another consideration is the counter top for your vanity. When considering what counter surface to go with, make sure to think about who will be using the vanity. Laminate countertops tend to be more durable and easy to maintain, but modern stone tops such as quartz and other man-made stones give the vanity a more modern appeal. One tip may be to match the countertop to your kitchen counters if you have also updated those, giving your home a connected, appealing look. Choose a top and finishes that have the look you want, but are also durable enough for the environment and use it will get.
The last tip is to talk to a design expert. The design experts at Elite Kitchens will be able to work with you to meet all of your design needs and make sure you get the proper vanity for your renovation.
