4 Reasons To Install a New Bathroom Vanity

New bathroom vanity

The vanity is the name for the bathroom sink and the cabinet that holds it up, as well as the mirror above it and the lighting. It doesn’t always get as much attention as the toilet, tub, or shower, but maybe it should. After all, the vanity is where you carry out most of your routine grooming tasks to make yourself presentable for the day. It should be comfortable, functional, and attractive, and plumbing services in Mississauga can help you make it so. If you are thinking about installing a new bathroom vanity, here are some reasons why you should.

1. Increased Storage Space

If you currently have a pedestal sink in the bathroom, you have no storage space underneath. Maybe you can place things down there, but they are out in the open rather than hidden from view. This is inconvenient if you want to store things that you would prefer to keep private, and there are some things that would not store well on the floor, such as towels and linens.

Maybe you already have a vanity that is very small and doesn’t offer enough storage space. If you upgrade to a bigger vanity, you have more storage space available. As a result, you may not even need a separate linen closet.

2. Improved Organization

Maybe it isn’t the size of your current vanity that is the problem. Maybe it is that the organization doesn’t make sense. It may have cabinets where you need drawers or vice versa. It may have all cabinets and all drawers when what you need is a mix of both. When you install a new vanity, you can choose a configuration that makes storage and organization more efficient.

Keep in mind that not all the storage space that a vanity provides is underneath the sink. The counter also provides storage, and if you upgrade to a larger vanity, that also means increased counter space. This gives you more room in which to organize your toiletries. You may even have room for an organizer that helps you cut down on clutter by providing a space for all the toiletries that you need to keep close at hand.

3. Better Lighting

Is the lighting part of the vanity? In most cases, the answer is technically not. However, as long as you are redoing the vanity, it makes sense to upgrade the light fixtures at the same time. There is little point in getting ready at a brand new vanity under lights that are inadequate to the task. You may want to upgrade to a new light fixture for the vanity or add more lights around it for better illumination. A combination of wall and ceiling lights can provide sufficient illumination no matter the grooming task.

Try to think outside the box when it comes to lighting for your vanity. For example, you could add under-cabinet lighting to help guide you when you need to use the toilet at night, which can also help give your bathroom a more modern look.

4. Customizable Options

If you have certain features in mind that you have always wanted in a bathroom vanity, now is your chance to obtain them. For example, one major feature that many couples want is a double sink that allows them to share the bathroom more efficiently without getting into each other’s space.

It may be that you don’t necessarily want new features for your vanity. Rather, it may just be that it is out of style and you want something more up to date. You can have a new vanity installed that complements the existing décor while breathing new life into the space, or you can have a complete bathroom renovation that gives it a whole new style.
