Bathroom Remodel Ideas: Things to Consider Before Installing Your Vanity

Master Bath VanityAll homeowners who are currently interested in finding the most exquisite, decently priced custom cabinets for their bathroom remodel project should realize that a gorgeous, unique vanity can change the feel of the entire room without making them break the bank to support their investment. Just like any other decorative element, a vanity can be personalized to meet the owner’s one-of-a-kind practical requirements and aesthetic expectations. Since not all vanities are created equally, what are the main criteria that you should consider before designing or ordering your own? Here are a few factors that you shouldn’t neglect.

1) Access. Is your vanity so big that is actually obstructs foot traffic and makes you bend and twist to clean hard to reach areas? Opt for a smaller model and don’t forget to measure the door swing range before taking it home with you. You may want to install wall bathroom cabinets and mirrors on top of your vanity. Use your imagination and make sure all these architectural details are in perfect harmony with the design elements of your room.

2) Materials of Choice. You don’t need to be an experienced designer or architect to discern that custom bathroom cabinets created to stand the test of time are made from special materials that can withstand increased traffic and superior levels of moisture. Generally speaking, bathrooms are busy and humid areas. In case you are eager to spend a bit more money on durable vanities built to last, turn to models made from termofoil, laminates or wood veneers.

Assuming that you don’t feel ready to end your romance with traditional,all-natural materials, buy and use only lacquered and sealed wood. While lacquered hardwood isn’t indestructible, it will definitely serve aesthetical and practical purposes for a longer period of time, without showing any signs of premature wear and tear.

3) Plumbing Elements. Before investing tons of cash in a bathroom remodel project, make sure you realize what the upcoming series of changes actually involve. Did you know that you may have to change the plumbing in order to implement a brand new custom vanity in your home? This step would involve supplementary expenses that you may not be ready to cope with. Even when you replace a floor-mounted bathroom vanity with a wall-mounted model you have to perform different plumbing alterations. So make sure you know what you’re getting yourself into before making a total mess by rerouting drains and old pipes.
