How Tall is a Bathroom Vanity?
The standard height of a bathroom vanity is about 36 inches tall. However, this isn’t the ideal height for all people – especially when you’re tall or short. The standard guideline is to choose a vanity that is about belly button height, which would be the comfort-height for most people. Plus, many retailers offer small bathroom vanities so you never have to worry about finding the right fit.
What Size Light Fixture is Best Over a Bathroom Vanity?
Like most pieces for bathrooms, you should choose a light fixture based on the placement of your bathroom vanity. If you’re looking at light bars you want to make sure to choose a light that is no wider than your bathroom vanity width; it can be wider than your bathroom mirrors, though. For sconces, the height varies depending on the size of your bathroom. Homeowners who have an average-sized bathroom should buy 15-18-inch sconces. Smaller bathrooms that usually only have a toilet and sink should choose sconces that are 12-inches or less. In larger bathrooms with two sinks, a towel closet, a bathtub, etc., consider sconces that are 19 inches or taller. .
What is the Best Bathroom Vanity Material?
The best material depends on how much you spend and the look you’re going for. If you’re searching for a low-cost and durable material, engineered wood is the way to go for your makeup vanities and bathroom storage. Quartz, marble and granite are beautiful countertop materials that will set your bathroom apart. With unique veining and speckles, these rich stones add an air of luxury without breaking the bank.
