When you're spending your hard-earned money, you want to make sure every choice is the right one for you. Do you want a full-sized vanity? Should you install a medicine cabinet or floating shelves? It's normal for all of those choices to make your head spin. When surveying your options for one of the main aspects to your bathroom remodel — the cabinets and vanities — it's important to keep in mind two things: functionality and design. Cabinet functionality. Factors like the swing of the cabinet door or how deep your vanity is can make a big impact in terms of functionality, especially on hectic weekday mornings. Make sure everything is in an accessible place and the foot traffic pattern will allow for smooth transitions.
If the product isn't certified, then you put yourself and your family in danger. Be sure to check for this certification and guarantee that the faucet is lead-free. Look for NSF Seal of Certification. The National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) oversees the "certification of plumbing products and materials". It also "helps confirm that they meet applicable American or international standards for a particular use". The NSF states, "Faucets and plumbing products intended for contact with drinking water should be tested and certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 61: Drinking Water System Components." The American National Standard ensures that these products have a limited amount of impurities. Look for the certification mark on the product, such as "NSF 61" (drinking water components) or "NSF pw" (drinking water components and others).
For smaller bathrooms with tighter quarters, sometimes a smaller multipurpose vanity or a custom vanity with open shelves can make the room feel bigger. Another way to get the most out of a smaller bathroom is to choose an open vanity without cabinets. Mounting cabinets to the wall as opposed to having them under the sink will give your eye some breathing room, create easier foot traffic and potentially keep the doorway from being blocked by cabinet doors. Once you know how you want the space to function, you need to figure out the look and feel you want your bathroom to have. Use your cabinets and vanities to drive home the design, whether modern or rustic. Floating your cabinets is ideal in small bathrooms or as a way to make your room feel more open. Use vessel sinks that sit on top of your bathroom vanity to create a more luxurious look.
