How to design or select a bathroom vanity

Custom wood vanities, like the one pictured, take a bathroom from vanilla to hot fudge sundae.

Today’s bathrooms are “practical sanctuaries” and custom cabinets bring the warmth that fine furniture brings to other rooms in the home. Whatever design style you chose, a vanity made especially for you makes the most of the space.

Homeowners have not always given such careful consideration to bathroom décor. Bathrooms used to be purely functional, non-public rooms that weren’t worth the effort to make into special places; the designs and finishes available were generic—one size (and one finish) fits all—but not anymore!

With all of today’s choices, choosing the right vanity for your space is an exciting process .

Solid design is the basis of good function with many factors needing to be considered. A great vanity design considerings space limitations, storage requirements, light and mirror placement, and sink style.

Would a corner unit work best, or are his-and-hers on your “necessary list”? Does your room contain an awkwardly shaped space? Perhaps you could get rid of an underutilized closet if the vanity allowed enough storage…

A custom design will provide the solution to all these layout dilemmas.

After the practical logistics are decided, the vanity then becomes a way to add extra luxury and personal touch to your bathroom. Style shines with the perfect wood, wood finish, countertop, sink, and cabinet hardware. Many of the wonderful accessories incorporated into modern kitchen cabinetry design also function perfectly in the bathroom and make the most of even small spaces and powder rooms.

  12. I am getting requests for custom bathroom cabinetry and vanities more than ever. I think people are starting to see the value in designing a functional vanity that works for their specific needs. Especially seeing an uptick in the number of requests for built-in makeup vanities with interior electrical to hide all those flat irons and whatever else our lovely ladies need on the daily.
