As a bathroom remodeling contractor, one of the trends we’re seeing is that homeowners enjoy bathroom vanities that are higher than they used to be.
Today, the standard for bathroom renovation is still a 30”-high vanity. That’s 6” shorter than the standard for kitchen counters. For many people, that 36” height is also more comfortable for the counter in the bathroom. Remodeling contractors – including us – find that clients like a slightly taller vanity is easier on the back because they don’t have to bend down so far to use the sink.
That taller height, however, comes with both benefits and challenges. Children, for example, will have trouble using a taller vanity. So, if the bathroom remodel needs to accommodate children, we’ll need to design room for a stool. We could design in space to stow an attractive stool. There are also bathroom-remodeler secrets like using the baseboard of the vanity cabinet to build in a slide-out step.
Six extra inches of height also means six extra inches of storage or stylish display. The possibilities are wonderful!
We’d love to show you the possibilities for your own bathroom remodel. Just give us a call. And in the meantime, we invite you to “shop” for some new bathroom renovation ideas in our Bathroom Remodeling photo gallery.
