Factors To Consider When Choosing A Bathroom Vanity

Factors To Consider When Choosing A Bathroom Vanity


One item in your bathroom that can completely change the look of the space when remodeling is a vanity.

Bathroom vanities by KBD Houston can lend your bathroom that unbeatable combination of timeless elegance and sheer functionality. A vanity unit combines the bathroom basin with a storage unit. It offers a valuable area to shave, an ideal makeup spot, and the perfect place to follow any skincare routine. 

This space is, most likely, one of the more frequently used spaces in the bathroom, so it deserves a little more thought when remodeling your new bathroom. A custom vanity can indeed be an excellent addition to your remodeled bathroom.

So how do you go about selecting the perfect bathroom vanity? We suggest you come along to our 5,000-square-foot showroom in Houston. With our expertise and knowledge, we can ensure that you have the ideal vanity to complement your bathroom design.

Key factors that you should consider when selecting a bathroom vanity include:



It’s most important to consider your budget when selecting a vanity. There are options available in all price ranges, and you’ll want to ensure that you find one that fits your needs and your budget. Consider the cost of installation as well, if required. 

Vanity units range from affordable to expensive, depending on the size, features, and material. It is best to determine your budget before shopping and stick to it vigorously to avoid overspending.



The purpose and usage of the vanity should also be taken into consideration. Do you need a single basin or a double basin? Are you looking for a countertop with space to store toiletries, such as a medicine cabinet? Will it be used mainly by adults or children? Answering these questions will help you narrow down your choices.



You’ll want to ensure that your vanity complements your remodeled bathroom and overall home aesthetic. Think about colors, textures, materials, and shapes that match or blend nicely with the rest of your interior design.

Since vanities are available in different colors, select one that is a nice contrast to the walls and tiles of your bathroom.


Vanity Material

You should prioritize durability, ease of maintenance, or cost depending on your needs. Most vanities are typically made from durable materials such as wood or stone, but other options include metal and glass. Quartz vanities are easy to maintain, while engineered materials are more affordable, give a natural look, and come in various finishes. 

A steel frame with glass shelves may be ideal if you’re looking for something contemporary and sleek.

However, if you prefer a classic look and feel, solid wood cabinets can give any bathroom an instant touch of sophistication.



The vanity countertop provides a surface where you can place items such as a soap dispenser, hand lotion, skin care products, or decorative items. It offers a convenient area for organizing your everyday essentials and adding personal touches to your remodeled bathroom.

Marble or granite surfaces can add sophistication to any bathroom and are durable and easy to clean.



One of the bathroom’s most used elements is the sink. A sink should fit harmoniously into its surroundings. It should neither be too overbearing nor too small. 

The number of sinks in a vanity is one of its most important functional elements.

The most common types of sinks include under mount, vessel, and drop-in. Undermount sinks are installed under the countertop, providing a seamless and sleek look. Vessel sinks require a larger countertop space since they are installed on top of the countertop, adding a unique element to the vanity. Drop-in sinks are easy to install and maintain and are installed into a pre-cut hole in the countertop.

A double-sink unit is more convenient if both spouses get ready for the day simultaneously. If you’d like to add a vanity with two sinks, some additional plumbing work will be required.

It would be best if you also considered installing low-flow faucets, which will help reduce your household water consumption. This will also lower your utility bills and your impact on the environment.



Understanding your bathroom storage needs should also play a pivotal role in your choice of vanity.

Vanities come with built-in cabinets or drawers, providing valuable storage space for bathroom essentials such as towels, toiletries, cleaning supplies, and more. Vanities can keep your bathroom organized and clutter-free. If your lifestyle is simple and you only have a few items in the bathroom, you won’t need large cabinets or drawers beneath the sink. The size of drawers and cabinets depends on what you’ll store. Keeping toiletries and cleaning products within reach will require more space.
