An incorrect bathroom vanity size can significantly affect how bathrooms or powder rooms function. A bathroom vanity that’s too large doesn’t leave enough space, while a vanity that is too small might not provide enough storage or counter space.
With that in mind, the team at Cardinal Wholesale Cabinets, LLC is here to talk about how to find the right bathroom vanity size. If you require high-quality bathroom cabinets in Phoenix, contact us today to speak to a cabinet professional!
How to Size Your Bathroom Vanity Correctly
When sizing your bathroom vanity, follow these three main steps to make sure it fits your bathroom space and layout.
Determine Project Scope
Do you want to simply replace your vanity with one of the same size or install a completely different one? If you just want to replace old bathroom cabinets, the job is simple—measure the existing vanity and choose something with the same dimensions.
If you want a new style of vanity, you will need to think a little more deeply about how to implement your preferred design.
Think About Layout
Your bathroom layout will determine the ideal spot for your vanity. You want to have at least 18 inches of space on either side of the vanity and at least 30 inches of clearance in the front. For example, your toilet should be at least 18 inches away from the left or the right of the vanity.
Also, your vanity needs enough clearance so it doesn’t obstruct the door. Before placing your vanity, make sure that the door doesn’t hit it. If you have a small bathroom, you may have to reduce the size of the vanity so the door fits.
Measure Vanity Width/Height/Depth
Once you have your intended layout, you need to measure the space to get the right bathroom vanity size. Standard vanity width for a single-sink vanity is about 18 inches, though vanities can measure up to 72 inches long or more. The most popular vanity heights are 30 and 36 inches—just high enough so the vanity countertop is easy to access. The typical vanity depth is 20 inches.
Additional Factors to Consider
When choosing your bathroom vanity, there are just a couple of other things you'll likely want to keep in mind:
- Double vanities will need more than double the space of single vanities.
- Don’t forget about the location of fixtures, such as toilets or sinks.
- Make sure the vanity doesn’t obscure any outlets or windows.
- The vanity width needs to match the width of any mirrors or shelves you install.
