Bathroom Vanity Sizing Info
Whether you are swapping out an existing vanity, or doing a new build, determining the size vanity you need is the most logical place to start. Take a moment to look at the line-art to the left and become familiarized with the nomenclature used to identify the three measurements. The primary unit of measurement used on our site is width. Width appears in all product titles and varies, from 18" to 72" and greater. When selecting the proper width for your bathroom, keep in mind that the minimum space required between the center of your toilet and the vanity is 15". Following this, take some time to consider the height you would your vanity to be. Vanity heights can be found as low as 27" and as high as 36". Children will appreciate lower vanities, while adults tend to give high marks for taller vanities. Last is depth. If you are tearing out an old vanity, you will likely find its depth to be 18" or 21". Because these two dimensions are industry standards, roughly two-thirds of the vanities we sell are offered in these two depth measurements. If your bathroom layout will allow for vanities with greater depths, it is worth getting. Deeper vanities provide more storage and the increased surface space of the vanity top is helpful for managing clutter.

Vanity Configurations: Doors vs. Drawers
When shopping, you will need to make the decision between doors, drawers, or an open cabinet. Many people overlook the importance of this, and base their decision solely on style characteristics, only to discover later that the vanity does not meet their functional needs. Take some time to consider the level of use your bathroom vanity will see on a daily basis before ordering.
Drawers are particularly useful for heavily used bathrooms where there will be the need to store dozens of daily-use items and containers such as make-up and lotions. Drawers are also very popular in children's bathrooms where each child may have a drawer of their own.
Vanities with doors provide more interior storage space than vanities with drawers, but offer little organization. For this reason, it is understood throughout the design industry that vanities featuring doors and no drawers are better suited for guest bathrooms where larger items such as towels and cleaning supplies will be stored.
Open cabinet designs give bathrooms the appearance of more space, but are best reserved for half-baths where very little will be stored.

Bathroom Vanity Designs and Styles
For shopping ease, we have designated each of the vanities we carry into four major design and style themes: Contemporary / Modern, Country / Rustic, Antique, and Traditional / Classic.
Form and function harmoniously together come together for Contemporary / Modern Vanities. Common characteristics are bold lines, boxy appearances and vessel (above-counter) sinks. Also, If you are looking for a wall-mounted vanity, your selection will contain mostly modern vanities.
Country / Rustic Bathroom Vanities represent vanities that are either white/biscuit or show off the natural beauty of wood. These vanities often times use finish techniques that give it a log-cabin-like, distressed look.
While not actual relics from the past, Antique Bathroom Vanities boast the same attention to detail as the vanities you will find in antique shops. Ball and claw feet, Victorian architectural designs, ornate wood carvings, and hand painted finishes are all common in this category of product.
It could be said that traditional vanities are those which do not clearly fall into any distinct design category, but rather take advantage of the best of the industry's innovations, and leave out what isn't needed. Vanities in this category aren't flashy - they're functional.

Bathroom Vanity Cabinets and Sets
While shopping, you will notice a wide range in pricing. While we do offer a variety of vanities, some using higher grade materials than others, In many circumstances the price range has more to do with what comes with the cabinet as opposed to quality of construction. Take a moment to look at the screen-shots to the left. Circled in red, we identify that the top example is a vanity cabinet, while the bottom example is a complete bathroom package, including the vanity cabinet, top, mirror, sink and faucet. Many of our customers are interested in a vanity cabinet only, as they are having tile or custom stone tops cut to match other areas of the bathroom. Others are looking for a bundle to take care of the entire purchase in one click.
In these tight economic times, we have seen bathroom vanity sets gain a lot in popularity. This makes sense - bathroom vanity sets are a deal. For this reason, you will see an entire section of our site dedicated to these. Click on this link, "Bathroom Vanity Sets" to exclusively shop for these.

Shopping Vanities on FaucetDirect.com
Now that you have a general understanding of bathroom vanities, it is time to start shopping. Every effort has been made to make this vanities homepage as intuitive as possible, but we would like to take a brief moment to point out that while browsing vanities, you can always use the "narrow-by's" to the left of each browsing page. Highlighted in red on the picture to the left, narrow-by's can be extremely useful for eliminating erroneous results and/or filtering out vanities that will not work for you. Also, within the narrow-by's you will see yellow question-marks. Hovering your mouse over these will give a description of that group's narrow-by's. But as always, if you would like assistance from one of our trained staff, we can be reached at 1-800-864-2555.
