Mounting a Bathroom VanityWhen installing a bathroom vanity, you need to know a few things before you start the process. You need to know what height it needs to be mounted at, where in the bathroom it should be mounted and any variables you need to take into account. Once all three of these factors are taken into account, you are ready to mounted your bathroom vanity. This guide will go over measurements, installation tips and other helpful elements to help you implement your bathroom vanity.
HeightMany heights are recommended when researching what height a bathroom vanity should be mounted at. It ultimately depends on your preference, but the height of a wall mounted vanity should be within a range of 36 inches to about 40 inches. This height is typically accepted height for the most comfortable and accessible for most people. However, if you are taller or tall people will be using this bathroom, another comfortable height can be around 40 inches to 48 inches. This can be more convenient for taller people so they do not have to bend down to wash their hands or brush their teeth.
Where You Should Mount ItThe first thing to consider when choosing where to mount your vanity is the size of your bathroom. If you have a smaller bathroom, you may want to consider a corner vanity in order to conserve and create space. If you have a medium to large sized bathroom, you start to have more options as to what you can do. If you want to implement a corner bathroom, you certainly can, but you now have more space to mount your vanity on the wall in order to incorporate a bigger mirror or more sink/counter top space.
There are a few things you need to take into consideration before taking the final steps in mounting your bathroom vanity. For example, you need to account for the comfort of everybody who is using the bathroom. If it is a public bathroom, it would be safe to mount the vanity at the preferred range of 36 to 40 inches. If it is private you need to choose which height will work best for you, whether it is the standard height or a slightly modified height. Another thing to consider is the type of sink that will be included on your vanity. If you are including a vessel sink, you may need to account for that and lower the height of the vanity a few inches so that the sink is at an accessible height.
