Choosing a Vanity For Your Bathroom

When renovating or building your bathroom, the first item that you often look for is the vanity. There are numerous sizes, styles and looks available that allow you to set the scene or create the ambience you desire. Vanities are essential to keep bathrooms uncluttered and to store things in their proper places. These storage items can accentuate existing bathroom furniture and can coordinate with various decors.

You want to purchase a vanity for the long haul so make sure you buy a piece made of durable materials. Look for materials such as low formaldehyde boards with high moisture resistance, solid backs (around 15mm in thickness) and high gloss polyurethane or laminate doors. Other unique features may include full extension drawers with metal sides and soft close doors and drawers.

Vanities are often chosen according to size, as this is usually the starting factor when deciding on your vanity. The most common standard sizes (in width) are: 600mm, 750mm, 900mm, 1200mm, 1500mm and 1800mm. Vanities can also be made to measure to fit perfectly into a space in your bathroom, but this may cost extra.

After size is considered, then styles and other functionality decisions can be made. Most vanities will allow the option of any tapware combination to complete the overall look.

Here are the different types of vanities that you can consider for your bathroom.
