Whether you’re completely remodeling your bathroom, or just updating the cabinetry, buying new bathroom cabinets is a big decision. The cabinets you choose will have a significant impact on the look, style, and storage capabilities of your bathroom. The overall process will be similar to buying kitchen cabinets, but there will be some differences.
Once you start looking for bathroom cabinet retailers, you’re going to be overwhelmed with options, styles, assembly methods, and colors. Before you begin, it can be wise to take a step back and think about the big picture.
A bathroom vanity is simply a bathroom cabinet that is built to accommodate a bathroom sink, or multiple sinks. Under the sink itself, the bathroom vanity will often double as a way to hide unsightly pipes and plumbing from the sink, with the remaining space typically used for additional bathroom storage. Many people consider the entire set of bathroom cabinets as the vanity. Technically, the bathroom vanity is one unit, though it may be surrounded by other cabinets which can create the illusion of a larger vanity unit. If discussing the project with a significant other, a solid understanding of common cabinet terminology can simplify communication and keep you on the same page.
When selecting a bathroom vanity, one of the first things you’ll want to know is the dimensions of the vanity you desire. If you are doing an apples-to-apples replacement, you can measure the width, length, and depth of your existing vanity and look for a replacement of equal size. If you’re remodeling, now is your chance to choose the size of your vanity! Larger bathrooms usually have a vanity width of 48” or 60” which provide more storage and are setup for two separate sinks. For smaller bathrooms, a freestanding or single basin vanity in the 30” to 36” range is more typical.
Keep these tips in mind to maximize your bathroom’s square footage.
Another thing you need to know is whether or not you want your bathroom vanity to mount to the wall, or whether it be ‘freestanding” and rest on the floor. Free standing bathroom vanities are great for small spaces, but can feel “cheap” when used in larger bathrooms.
When shopping for bathroom cabinets on our site, you will see our bathroom vanities are broken up into a few different types: Sink Base Cabinets, Base Cabinets, and Drawer Base Cabinet. If a bathroom cabinet has drawers and doors, we will also refer to it as a Drawer Right or Drawer Left cabinet, based on what side of the cabinet the drawers are on.
At Lily Ann, we use ½” furniture grade plywood for our drawer and box construction, while most others use inferior particle board or other filler materials. Even our competitors that do use furniture grade plywood typically max out at ⅜” in thickness, which might not sound like a huge difference but is 25% thinner than what we use.
Most bathrooms see a lot of daily use, and your bathroom cabinets need to be durable enough to stand up to that. This includes a high-quality finish on your cabinets to protect them from fading, nicks, and other unsightly damage that may occur. We utilize a 12-step hand applied glaze and stain to all of our RTA bathroom cabinets. Look for a cabinet retailer that puts as much emphasis on their glazes and stains as they do everything else.
If you’ve read through this guide, you’ve probably got a good enough understanding to start the process of buying your new bathroom cabinets! Check out these links to see what Lily Ann Cabinets can do for you.
