Bathroom Vanities Buyer's Guide
When shopping for a bathroom vanity, there are several factors to consider to ensure that you find the perfect one for your space.
Size: Measure your bathroom space to determine the maximum size vanity that will fit. Consider the number of sinks you need and whether you want a single or double vanity. It is important to ensure that your vanity will fit in your bathroom without overcrowding the space or making it feel cramped. It is also important to consider the number of sinks you need, as this will affect the size and layout of the vanity. A single vanity is ideal for smaller bathrooms, while a double vanity is a good option for larger spaces or homes with multiple people sharing the same bathroom. Modern Bath House offers a wide variety of sizes: from a single small sink on a pedestal to a 96-inch double sink bathroom vanity.
Style: Bathroom vanities come in a wide range of styles, including traditional, modern, and transitional. Consider the overall style of your bathroom and choose a vanity that complements it. If you have a traditional bathroom, look for a vanity with ornate details and classic lines. If your bathroom has a modern or contemporary feel, look for a vanity with clean lines and a minimalistic design. Transitional vanities are a combination of traditional and modern, and they can give a balance to the bathroom design. Learn more about decor styles in your bathroom with our Vanity Style Guide.
Material: Bathroom vanities are made from a variety of materials, including wood, engineered wood, and metal. Each material has pros and cons, so consider the vanity's durability, maintenance, and overall look when making your choice. Additionally, it is essential also to consider the countertop material. Popular options include Granite, Carrara Marble, quartz, solid surface, and laminate. Each material has its characteristics, such as durability, maintenance, and price. For example, Granite and marble are natural stones that offer a luxurious look but require regular maintenance and can be expensive. Quartz and solid surface are engineered materials that are more durable and low maintenance, but they can also be pricey. Laminate is a budget-friendly option that can mimic the look of natural stone, but it needs to be more durable. To learn more, read our full Bathroom Vanity Countertop Material Guide.
Storage: Consider the storage needs of your bathroom and choose a vanity that provides ample space for your toiletries, linens, and other items. Look for options with drawers, shelves, and cabinets to maximize storage. The amount of storage you need will depend on the size of your bathroom and how much stuff you have to store. A vanity with drawers, shelves, and cabinets will give you the most storage options, but you can also look for vanities with open shelving or a single large cabinet.
Price: Bathroom vanities come in a wide range of prices, so consider your budget when shopping. Look for options that provide the features and style you want at a price that works for you. You should have a budget in mind before you start shopping, and try to find a vanity that fits within that budget. You may have to make some compromises on features or style, but you should be able to find a vanity that meets your needs without breaking the bank.
Accessories: Bathroom vanities have many different accessories to match the vanity style, such as Faucets, Mirrors, side cabinets and lighting. It is better to choose accessories that match the color and style of the vanity. The faucets, mirrors, and lighting you choose should complement the overall design of your bathroom and the vanity. If you're choosing a traditional vanity, look for faucets with classic lines and ornate details. If selecting a modern vanity, look for faucets with clean lines and a minimalistic design.
Brand Reputation: Check the brand reputation and warranty details to ensure that you get a quality product that will last for years. Not all bathroom vanities are created equal, so it's important to research and choose a vanity from a reputable brand. Look for brands with good reviews and a solid warranty to ensure you get a product that will stand the test of time. Modern Bath House only sells bathroom vanities from reputable US-based suppliers. We carefully vet each supplier to ensure that they have a good reputation and that their products are of the highest quality. As a result, we have sold thousands of vanities to satisfied customers.
Installation: Consider the installation process and whether you need professional help installing your vanity. Some vanities come pre-assembled, but hiring a professional to install the vanity is best. Professional installation may cost more, but it will ensure that the vanity is installed correctly. Professional installation can also affect your warranty. When you hire a professional, check their credentials and references and have a clear agreement on the cost of the service.
By considering these factors, you can find the perfect bathroom vanity for your space that meets all of your needs and fits within your budget.
