Are you considering a bathroom remodel with a double vanity, but you’re unsure if it’s the best option for you? Sometimes they add more space to a bathroom but not always. Bathrooms need to fit your needs, but a great-looking bathroom is always a bonus. Let’s explore the factors to consider when deciding between more storage and an additional vanity.
A bathroom remodel is a significant project that you should carefully consider before starting. Is your aim for this remodel to add more space for your growing family, is it to boost the resale value of your home, or for other reasons? If your bathroom already feels a bit cramped, consider expanding it if possible.
If you bathroom already feels low on space, adding another vanity will likely only exasperate the problem. An additional sink only means that there will be less storage space on the counter, and there must be room for plumbing as well. With one sink & vanity, you can use the extra counter space for toothbrushes and other hygiene items that are used frequently. Typically, you want to have at least 72 inches width-wise to build a vanity properly and practically.
The goal of your bathroom remodel matters here; are you remodeling the bathroom for yourself or to entice potential buyers down the road. Think about the habits of you and your family. Do you have multiple people getting ready at the same time, or are routines more spread out with some working or learning from home? If you don’t have people using the sink at the same time as one another, you probably don’t need a double vanity.
On the other hand, if you’re remodeling your home with the intention to sell it, you can entice buyers with a clean and modern-looking double vanity without worrying about the impact on your daily routines.
When it comes to bathrooms, keeping things clean is important. You want to have a bathroom that is not only easy to keep clean but looks neat with all of your daily products within arms reach. More counter space and under sink storage will often benefit homeowners more than an additional sink and mirror will add.
Ultimately, whether or not to opt for a dual vanity bathroom is up to you. You may find it easy to keep clean and fit all of your essentials with limited counter space, but many need more storage. Contact Tom Curren Companies today for help with remodeling your bathroom.
