Measure Your Space

Always consider how much space you have, while choosing a bathroom vanity. Start by measuring the width and depth of your bathroom to determine the perfect vanity size. Keep in mind who will be using it, how much storage space is required and the plumbing location. It’s imperative to leave sufficient room for door openings, trim and floor space.

If you are re-doing your bathroom, remember to check if your existing bathroom floor continues under your current vanity before deciding on the size and style of your new vanity. 

Vanity Width 

Vanities come in a variety of sizes with the most common widths being 24", 30", 36", 48", 60" and 72". A 24" vanity is perfect for a powder room or guest bathroom with limited space while a 48" vanity may be suitable for a medium-sized bathroom. For a larger master bath, a 60" or 72" vanity would be ideal to give you plenty of room and storage space. 

Vanity Height 

Vanity height is an important measurement to consider when thinking of comfort. Consider who will be using the bathroom and what height they would find the most comfortable. Traditionally, the standard bathroom vanity height is 32", but modern trends suggest 36" vanities to be the comfort height. The bottom line is – vanity height comes down to personal preference so choose the height that you will find the most comfortable.

Single vs. Double Vanities 

Choosing between a single or double vanity will largely depend on space. A single vanity holds one sink and is the most common for smaller bathrooms while double sink vanities hold two sinks and are best for master suites or shared bathrooms.

Keep in mind that two sinks may not always be better than one. While double sink vanities come with more counter and storage space, they leave you with less floor space than a single sink vanity.
