The first thing I need to select for this powder room is a knockout bathroom vanity. There are hundreds of wallcoverings out there, but not nearly as many choices in bathroom vanities that will come in the required size. So,in cases like these that is where to start with your selections. In powder rooms, if there is room for a vanity and not just a pedestal sink, I like to use a freestanding furniture vanity as opposed to one made out of cabinetry. For my virtual makeover, I am looking at bathroom vanity options that are 36″ wide.
In this particular case, I am looking for a bathroom vanity to complement to the existing Kohler Portrait toilet in biscuit. Yes, I can look at a toilet and know who makes it, my mother is so proud.
Before you buy a Bathroom Vanity:
- Take your measurements from the baseboard. You don’t want to have to cut the legs or base of your vanity around the baseboard.
- Take a look at your plumbing drain pipes- if they go through the floor you will want to avoid a floating vanity or one with tall legs.
- Do the undertones of the paint or cabinet top match other items in the room that you are keeping?
