Even a simple bathroom vanity unit must be considered when designing a bathroom. This piece makes the room complete. Also consider the bathroom sinks, bathroom countertops, and taps to determine the end look.

Large home improvement stores like Home Depot and Lowe’s have model bathrooms and specialists who will communicate with customers to determine what styles fit their tastes best. The internet is also a helpful tool for designing the bathroom and purchasing project materials to fix it up.

First, pick a bathroom vanity unit. Try looking in salvage yards. The units range from 24 to 72 inches or more. Consider a double sink unit if several people will be using the bathroom. They range in price from $300 to several thousand dollars.

Next pick bathroom countertops. They come in marble or granite, cultured marble, or Formica. Durable and stain-resistant marble is great for heavier traffic if lots of people will frequently be using the bathroom.

Next choose bathroom sinks. There are traditional sinks that sit recessed into the countertops. Or there is the contemporary vessel sink to add a luxurious spa feeling to the room. These go great with simple vanities.

Bathroom taps are also important to consider. The finish and style needs to flow with the rest of the room. It doesn’t necessarily have to match, but it should fit well with the rest of the decor. Think about traditional or classic options and determine what goes with your design scheme.

A bathroom vanity and the items that go with it are essential to the bathroom design process. They make a bold statement to the room. With careful planning, they can make the bathroom feel very serene.
