Ready Made or Custom Bathroom Vanity?
The first decision you’ll need to make when choosing a bathroom vanity is whether to pick one ready made or have one customised. This is something you’re going to see everyday for a very long time, so it’s important you love it. If you can find a ready made bathroom vanity that suits your home and your needs, great! If not, having a vanity custom built to your size, plumbing and personal specifications will likely be money well spent.
Which Materials Are Best?
Granite and marble make for great benchtop materials because of their durability and sleek look. Whereas timber is equally durable, and a great choice to add warmth to a predominantly tiled, white bathroom. Laminate is a more affordable option, but won’t give you the durability or aesthetic appeal of more expensive, high-quality materials.
With so many great options on the market, we’d suggest compiling some visual inspiration to figure out which materials you like the look of best. Whichever material you decide on will be entirely dependent on your desired finished product.
Think About Your Features
When deciding on the features you’d like to have in your new bathroom vanity, it’s useful to use your current vanity as a reference point. What do you like about it? What could be better? Does it comfortably fit all of your belongings or do you need more space? It’s also important to consider how many people will be using this new vanity.
A few recommendations from the Buywood team… ample bench space is crucial. Obviously, you’re limited by the size of your bathroom, but adequate bench space can make or break the overall usability of a vanity. Another tip… while drawers are great for things like toiletries, open shelves look incredible for storing towels and décor.
