Therefore, careful planning and attention to detail is required to ensure the bathroom is designed to your needs and specifications. One of the most important areas of the bathroom is the vanity. The vanity makes the look of the bathroom, creates the storage, and is a heavily used space. Therefore, the vanity must be perfect in terms of look and utility.

    Step 1-Finalize the Layout: The first step is the finalize on the bathroom layout. Designate the space for the vanity and determine how big it is going to be. Most vanities are horizontal spaces with an ongoing counter and extensive storage underneath. The length of the vanity depends on the best possible size that will fit in the bathroom.

    Step 2-Determine the Number of Sinks: The next step is to finalize the number of sinks. For example, a couple sharing a space may prefer double sinks rather than a single sink. However, many bathrooms only have room for one sink. The sink can be placed in the center or towards either side, depending on preference. In most cases, vanities smaller than 60 inches can only accommodate one sink, while vanities wider than 60 inches can easily accommodate two. Nevertheless, even if there is room for two sinks, have a single sink allows for extensive counter space so the users can easily spread themselves.
