Choosing Bathroom Vanaties
A bathroom vanity is an important piece of furniture in any home. It serves as a place for a person to use a sink, wash their hands, apply makeup, brush their teeth, and store other personal items. Most vanities have a countertop and a sink and faucet, but they can also feature additional fixtures, such as a built-in soap dispenser. Choosing a vanity that is suitable for your space is a good first step toward decorating your bathroom.
Some vanities are narrow but can be fitted into tight spaces. For example, the pedestal sink from Darla DeMorrow’s “Dreams” line is only 15 inches wide, but provides ample storage. A vanity’s countertop length is also an important consideration. Some decorators choose long countertops that extend from wall to wall. A narrow vanity may be perfectly fine in a small bathroom with little traffic, but a pedestal sink is a more practical option in a bigger space.
Pedestal sinks and wall-mounted sinks both are vanity options, although they have their limitations. Vanity cupboards need to be chosen in a way that ensures they will last for a long time. When it comes to vanity materials, homeowners should invest in the best materials they can afford. In general, however, pedestal sinks are fine in small bathrooms. If you are remodeling an older home, look for an updated vanity to add more storage space and value to the house.
