There’s something a beautifully designed bathroom vanity that makes your morning routine just a little bit better. That might be why a recent CIBC poll showed that a full 39% of British Columbians were planning on renovating their bathroom this coming year. If you’re in that number, start planning your project with some ideas from our bathroom vanity inspiration gallery.
A well-designed bathroom vanity can significantly enhance the functionality and aesthetic appeal of your bathroom. Several key features contribute to a good bathroom vanity design. Here are some essential elements to consider:
- Appropriate Size & Scale. The vanity size should be proportionate to the size of the bathroom. It should provide sufficient storage and countertop space without overwhelming the room. Consider the available floor space, door swing, and the overall layout of the bathroom.
- Functional Layout & Storage. Effective storage is crucial in a bathroom vanity. Incorporate drawers, cabinets, and shelves that provide organized storage for toiletries, towels, and other essentials. Consider features like pull-out trays, dividers, or built-in organizers to maximize usability.
- Sink Style & Placement. Choose a sink style that complements the overall design, whether it’s an undermount sink, vessel sink, or perhaps a his-and-hers sink. Consider the placement of the sink to optimize counter space and provide ample room for daily activities.
- Adequate Lighting. Proper lighting is essential in a bathroom vanity area. Incorporate adequate task lighting, such as sconces or fixtures mounted on either side of the mirror, to ensure sufficient illumination for grooming activities. Consider the overall bathroom lighting design for a balanced and well-lit space.
- Ease Of Maintenance. Ask your designer to suggest materials and finishes that are easy to clean and maintain. A bathroom vanity is exposed to water, soap, and various products, so choosing materials that resist stains and are easy to wipe down is essential.
