Whether you want to add a splash of color or make a statement in your bathroom, a custom built vanity can make any bathroom or powder room come to life. But what do you need to know when planning the design of your dream vanity? While you may think you can purchase a ready-made bathroom vanity and add your own custom touches, this is often not the case. See how Metropolitan can help you design the perfect vanity for your home.
What is a vanity?
A vanity can be made from several different material options, but we need to see how many square feet your plan will take up and whether or not it’s going into a small powder room, a mudroom, or large full bathroom.
You should also keep in mind that there are two types of common sinks: one-basin and two-sink vanities which both come with their own perks for the space. In the end, you should prep for your vanity to be 36 inches tall with a 2-inch countertop. One of the most important things to consider when planning a bathroom layout is how much space you have.
Pre-made Bathroom Vanities
Those who are interested in renovating a bathroom in their home might be considering an in-stock vanity. These types of vanities can help you save a lot of money but still deliver a high quality build, especially the ones from Metropolitan. These vanities are a great option for those who want to save money and don’t want the headache of customization while still getting a great product for the value.
Semi-custom bathroom vanities
Semi-custom or custom vanities are not required if the pre-made vanity fits the space. However, they can be made in unusual sizes and styles as needed. The standard size of a semi-custom vanity is 18 inches to 72 inches but there is no standard style as that is where the “customization” comes in.
They can be manufactured with stylized doors, a range of colors and finishes, and built for specialty needs.
Custom built vanity units
With a variety of options and styles to choose from when it comes to a custom built vanity, Metropolitan can create a custom built vanity for you. Choose the size and layout of your cabinet, pick out materials like quartz or granite tops, and select wood species as well as colors and finishes for your doors.
We can even create vanities in custom sizes for special applications like a custom built makeup vanity or your powder room or master bath buildout with the need for a double vanity.
