Bathroom Vanity Hutch - Even in today's Real Estate market the yield on investment for a Bathroom remodel ranges between 80 - 90%. The key, of course, would be to plan and choose wisely before purchasing your toilet components. Bathroom vanity furniture comes in all heights, widths, and shapes. Since the dressing table is usually the sole piece of furniture that you will purchase for your toilet, getting it right is critical. Measuring your toilet is the first step in the preparation process for any remodel. This will provide you with a good sense of the place of items like doors, windows, and electric outlets. These fixtures are important to consider when allocating space to your bathroom vanity furniture.
Maintaining the different electric outlets open, and accessible, should also be considered. There can also be restrictions in the local construction codes for proper placement of vanities, proximate to electric outlets. Accidentally covering over the sole outlets in a toilet can cause additional functional problems. The proximity to other components; tub, bathroom, and shower needs to be considered also. You always need to leave enough space between each fixture to allow for simple cleaning, and for a bigger person to be comfortable in the room.
There are no specific standards for the elevation of a toilet vanity. However taking the opportunity to consider who the primary users of the toilet will be, is useful in picking out the correct height. If the toilet is to be used by relatives, and guests, then choosing the more conventional 32 to the 34-inch cabinet is sensible. Remember, cabinets that are taller than standard will be difficult for a child to handle, and anything lower than standard will probably be uncomfortable for most adults. Today's trend in bathrooms would be to get taller bathroom vanity furniture, more similar in elevation to all those cabinets that are found in almost any kitchen. However, it is your toilet, so making it work for your particular needs while incorporating your desired style elements, is really the most important factor.
The diameter of the vanity is crucial. The first consideration is how wide is it, and still fit through the bathroom door. Many bathroom vanities include pre-constructed; however, there are also expandable or collapsible vanities available. Their design enables them to be installed in almost any toilet regardless of the restrictions imposed by a narrow toilet door. The vanity door swing and drawer size also need to be considered. A dressing table door that is too wide can result in limited space and limited human movement. It's important to keep in mind that there needs to be enough space for the toilet door to start comfortably without damaging your new furniture. Door dings are unpleasant and will happen if space it overly tight. In addition, an overly tight match can create a safety hazard, that with proper preparation, can be averted. Cabinet style is also crucial. Style sets the overall tone to your bathroom layout.
Keep in mind that a vanity cabinet that's too large or too tall can make your bathroom feel small and cluttered, however, a dressing table that's too little for space will just seem lost, and out-of-place. If choosing a vessel sink, then the top of the cabinet needs to be lower compared to the standard to be able to allow for the elevation of the sink bowl to be comfortably accessed. The use of a boat sink, however, does allow for longer drawers, and under cabinet storage space. A standard recessed sink limits this accessible space. Since the toilet is the room that gets used by everybody, multiple times every day, design defects will be detected quickly and could be costly to remediate. So right size your dressing table choice. Figuring out exactly what size bathroom vanity furniture will suit the space that's accessible is a good place to start and will go a long way in respect to your overall satisfaction when you're finished with remodeling your bathroom.
