Choosing A Vanity for your Bathroom Remodel

There are lots of styles and considerations when choosing the vanity for your bathroom remodel. Cabinetry designs have really changed in the last 30 years. One of the biggest differences is in vanity height. A standard bathroom vanity was 30″ high in the 1980’s, now the standard vanity height is 36.” The reason for the change is all about comfort. It is much easier on the back to have a bathroom sink the same height as a typical kitchen sink. Leaning over causes stress on the lower back and having a surface at work- station height makes sense in most instances. Custom vanities can be made for ADA height requirements, or if you want something lower for children. Most families are fine with a step stool for young children – they grow fast!

Five piece drawers and doors with stylized rails and stiles definitely provide a new crisp look compared to the traditional raised panel with slab front drawer and oak cabinetry.

Looking beyond cabinet height and wood finish – you can see how hardware and fixtures have an integrated style – in this example, pulls with a contemporary feel replace the round functional knobs and the faucet and sleek integrated sink also add a transitional update to this bathroom remodel vanity selection.
