Shopping for a vanity can be frustrating if you don’t know what to look for. There are a few simple steps you can take to ensure you walk out of a store with the best bath vanity unit for your bathroom. First, set a budget. How much are you willing to spend? How much can you afford to spend? Don’t be afraid to spend a decent amount of money on a bathroom vanity. It will last many, many years, so it can be worth the investment. Second, measure the space in your bathroom that will contain the bath vanity. Make sure you take measurements in all three dimensions. This information will tell you instantly whether or not a particular vanity is too big or too small. Third, take note of the style of your bathroom. If your bathroom is already constructed, you can even take a photograph to help you remember what the style is. It is important for aesthetic reasons that you choose a bath vanity unit that matches the bathroom’s decorative style. Fourth, note down storage requirements. How many drawers or storage compartments need to be in the vanity? How big do these compartments need to be? Much much bench space do you need?
If you pick a bath vanity based solely on style, then you run the risk of having a vanity unit that is not practical for you and your family’s needs. If you follow these simple steps, you should have a relatively clear picture of your bath vanity’s essential requirements. This will narrow down the options considerably, and you will spend a lot less time wasting your energy looking at vanities that are not suitable for your home. If you’re still stuck, ask a friend or family member for their opinion. Sometimes all you need is to see things from someone else’s perspective.
