Adding a double vanity to the bathroom is one of the most common things couples do during a bathroom remodel. You should think carefully before doing this because there are pros and cons to installing a double vanity. You should think about your bathroom’s available space, your lifestyle and the purpose of your remodel. Sadler Building Corporation, a top custom home builder and remodeler, explains more.
Two sinks can fit in a 48” wide space, however, this will use up all of the available counter space. It will also eliminate your ability to have under counter drawers because of the plumbing. It’s better to have 72” or more of available space if you want your bathroom to have a double vanity. This will give you a decent amount of counter space and drawer space.
Purpose of Your Project
What is the purpose of your remodeling project? Are you doing this to improve the value of your home or to make your home better fit your lifestyle? In general, if you have enough space for a double vanity, then you should add it to your bathroom to improve your home’s value. If you’re adding a double vanity to your bathroom to improve it, then you should carefully evaluate if it’s the right choice for your bathroom.
Double vanities provide greatly increased storage space and make the bathroom much more convenient for couples. However, a double vanity isn’t always a good idea because people have different lifestyles. Do you and your partner always share the same bathroom at the same time? Is this a regular enough occurrence that you think that a double vanity is worth it? Consider your habits before adding a double vanity.
