Measure Your Space Out

Before you consider installing a bathroom vanity, it’s important to take the time to measure your space.

Here are a few important considerations:

  • Consider doors! It's important to remember to leave enough room for door openings and trims. Every space is unique, so open the doors (and drawers) on your vanity before measuring it against the dimensions of your bathroom area. Try and remember to keep space for walking and moving around too.

  • Keep in mind existing fixtures, such as mirrors, electrical switches and power inputs.

  • Check where your plumbing enters the room. This could determine or limit the width of your chosen vanity. Having to hire a plumber will increase the costs involved.

Next, measure sizes for vanity cabinets and any benchtops/vanity tops. Take into account your storage needs and who'll be using the vanity.

Taller adults may want a higher setup, while shorter setups work better for children.

Picking a Bathroom Vanity Style

Sink Type

There are two types of bathroom vanities to chose from: freestanding and built-in. Freestanding vanities tend to be a better option for small spaces and come in a wide variety of styles. Built-in vanities are the better option for larger bathrooms and typically offer more countertop and provide additional under storage space for towels, detergents and cleaning products.

You’ll also need to select sink option for your bathroom vanity. The most popular sink options are round, oval, square and rectangular. The most popular types are:

  • Undermount Sinks: Sink is mounted underneath the installed countertop.

  • Drop-In Sinks: The edges rest on the countertop, and the base is hidden under the counter.

  • Vessel Sinks: The full sink resets on top of the counter.

  • Wall Mounted Sinks: Mounted to the wall, these are ideal for a small bathroom
