You want your new bathroom to reflect your style. However, you also need it to be functional. When remodeling a bathroom, there are many decisions you’ll need to make. Some are aesthetic and others are functional. Your bathroom vanity is both! Depending on the bathroom you are remodeling and who will be utilizing the space, the type of vanity you need will be different. Our experienced bathroom remodelers have some tips to help you choose one that you love.
List What Doesn’t Work With Your Current Vanity
Are the drawers too narrow? Not deep enough? Do you wish there were more drawers and fewer cabinets? What about more cabinet space and less drawer space? Do you not have enough storage for all the people using the space? Wish you had two smaller separate vanities rather than one large one? Let your bathroom remodeling company know.
Think About Who Will Be Using the Bathroom
Of course, we all use just about every bathroom in a home regularly, however, if your bathroom remodeling project is for a master bathroom, you’re going to have a different primary audience (and needs) than if your space is for occasional guests.
If it’s kids who will use it most often, is there a drawer or an equal number of drawers for each child? Perhaps you want a girl’s curling irons, hair dryers and other hair things put away each day. If so, know what type of space that requires and communicate that to your bathroom remodelers so they can guide you to cabinet manufacturers that have the right solution for you.
Put Together Your Wish List
Perhaps you want in-drawer organized storage or outlets hidden in a drawer or cabinet. Have you always wanted two sinks? Or do you love the idea of a furniture-style vanity? Your bathroom remodelers don’t know what to show you if you don’t tell them what you really want. Most will work hard to fit your budget without sacrificing the elements on your wish list.
Utilize All Space Wisely
One common mistake when bathroom remodeling is not thinking that you can utilize the space better. Just because it’s a small space doesn’t mean its current layout is the only option. One big change we often make is removing a tub/shower combo and replacing it with a walk-in shower. Because a walk-in shower can be designed in almost any dimension, you can make it a size that you need and then utilize the remaining space for a larger single vanity or perhaps even two smaller ones.
