When remodeling your bathroom, one of the first things you need to consider is your sink or vanity. If you are sharing the room with your partner or other family members, you may benefit from having a double vanity. However, this feature can take up a huge amount of space in your bathroom.
Keep reading to find out if you really need a double vanity in your bathroom.
Do You Have Enough Space for a Double Vanity?
A common challenge with adding a double vanity is space. It may not be an ideal option if you have limited space in your bathroom. While two sinks usually fit in a 48-inch wide space, they won’t allow for under-counter drawers due to plumbing. The ideal space for a double vanity is at least 72 inches. With this much room, you’ll have sufficient counter space and drawers for storage.
What Will You Use It For?
Many people remodel their bathrooms to increase the value of their property. Others find it more efficient to have two sinks, especially when getting ready in the morning. If you have sufficient counter and storage space in your bathroom, a double vanity will improve its functionality while increasing your home’s resale value.
Consider Your Lifestyle
Is your goal for getting a double vanity to improve the functionality of your space? If so, consider your lifestyle and habits. For instance, a double vanity is often more ideal for people in relationships than those who are single. If you have a partner, do you often use your sink at the same time? Are there instances where your special someone is brushing their teeth while you are doing your makeup?
Having enough counter space and mirror access is essential if you share a bathroom with your partner. But instead of installing a double vanity, you may also want to consider an alternative solution — increasing your counter space and installing a center sink. This option will allow you to have extra storage on each side of the sink.
