Did you know the vanity you choose could dramatically change the ambience of a bathroom? The vanity is often the focal point of any bathroom as they are decorative, and often the only place for storage in a bathroom. Just like kitchen cabinets and countertops, one has to decide on style, color, construction, counter-top material, size, height, lights, sink, faucet, free standing, wall mount, storage space, etc. Remember the following points that will help you to choose which vanity is right for you.

Size

Picking out the right size is the fi rst step. Vanities can range in size from 18 inches to 72 inches. Keep in mind that it doesn’t have to fi ll up the entire space. If renovating an existing bathroom, the placement of current plumbing will determine also where the lavatory will be. Size will often determine how much storage space you will have under the counter.

Material

In Hawaii we experience higher levels of moisture in the form of humidity and wet weather. Particle-board vanities do not have a long life expectancy due to the weather in Hawaii. Vanities that use wood will cost more but last longer in the humidity of Hawaii.

Number of Sinks

Usually the number of people will determine if a double vanity is needed. Space is a factor also as the minimum size for a double vanity is usually 60 inches.

Countertop

The type of countertop you select should be based on functional needs and budget. Granite, marble and other stones are beautiful and luxurious options, but periodic sealing is required. Manmade solid surfaces such as Techstone can have the elegant feel of a natural stone, but offer significant choice of color and pattern. Counter sink tops are also a popular choice where a sink and countertop is molded as one seamless piece.
