A bathroom vanity can be an attractive and accomplished multi-tasker, holding your sink, hiding your plumbing and providing storage in cabinets, drawers and countertops. But if your bathroom is small — say, 50 square feet or less — you might assume you don’t have an inch to spare for additional cabinetry. Here’s the good news: there are plenty of gorgeous vanities available in a range of scaled-down widths, including one that might be perfect for your space.
Small Bathroom Vanities Buying Guide
A small bathroom space does not mean you cannot deliver a luxurious look and functionality through the installation of a lovely bathroom vanity. Our small bathroom vanities offer plenty of options for the smallest of rooms. We have cabinets that are only a bit over a foot wide and offer fully functional sinks and storage space! When you are working in small rooms, like powder rooms, space is at a premium, so it is essential that you make the best choice possible for your vanity. We have provided the buying guide below to help you choose a cabinet that fits your need and space equally well.
Size really does matter. It is not necessarily important to have a vanity that is large, but it is essential to have a vanity that fits. If the vanity is too big, it can block other elements in the bathroom or reduce the ability to move freely within the room. The best way to ensure that you do not purchase a bathroom vanity that is too big is to measure the available space. Measure the width by measuring across the wall where the vanity will go. Only measure space that is free and will not be needed for another item or task. You can also measure depth by figuring out how far from the wall the vanity can stick. You will want to consider the possibility of opening drawers or doors when you decide on dimensions. Leave room for these types of activities on the front of your cabinet. If you have a narrow depth, you can shop all narrow depth vanities here.
Style and Finishing
Your vanity should match your personals style as well as the decor for your space. The reason it is important to choose according to your personal style is that you want the vanity to match any future changes you might make to decor. Style elements you may be able to choose from will include counter tops, finish, fixtures and hardware. Our line of small vanities range from the ornate to the simple and modern, so you should be able to choose elements that go well together and mingle in your room. We also have a selection of small pedestal sinks.
Storage options are often a big part of choosing a vanity. When you need to select a smaller vanity, you can still get some good storage options. In order to know which options are right for you, think about what you will need to store in the vanity. That will help you decide if you need a single under sink cabinet, a few small drawers or even just some open shelves. You should also consider what other storage options are available in the bathroom and how they might impact your need for storage in a powder room vanity.
The final step in making any vanity selection is to complete an overall review of plumbing and other technical elements. You should make sure the sink, fixtures and cabinet you choose have matching specification. You should also make sure they will integrate into your existing plumbing. In addition to plumbing, you may also want to check to ensure the cabinet will not block electrical outlets or heating vents.
A small bathroom creates some design challenges. You have to be far more thoughtful about how you use every square inch of space. You often can’t do much about the toilet, shower or bathtub, but you can make a big difference in your bathroom’s look by updating your vanity.
The best small bathroom vanities will refresh your bathroom by making it appear larger as well as more modern. And if you choose a vanity that maximizes your countertop area, you’ll not only have a more beautiful bathroom but one that is functional, too.
For even more storage space in your bathroom, consider adding a floating shelf over your vanity to hold your toothbrushes, hand lotion, makeup and other small items.
Our single sink small bathroom vanities are some of our most popular vanity products by far. They are the perfect addition to any small bathroom that is lacking in space or that has the tendency to feel cramped when in use. These vanities create a more spacious feeling in a small bathroom due to them being small in stature. This type of vanity will also seamlessly fit into any larger bathroom and add a more sophisticated feel to the room.
We take pride in the knowledge that the bathroom is the most used room in the home and as such our vanities are crafted out of none other than top of the line materials. Materials such as oak, birch, glass, mahogany, steel and acrylic are used for vanity construction to guarantee that your vanity will last and accentuate your bathroom for years to come.
Single vanities come in a range of cabinet designs. Modern and black small bathroom vanities are perfect for homeowners with a more contemporary style. Older looking antique vanities look great in Victorian style homes. A white single vanity cabinet would go great in a country style home and add more warm and homey feel to the bathroom.
