Bathroom remodeling contractors usually get asked by clients whether they should add a double vanity in their bathrooms. The answer to this varies depending on your goal for the remodel, the space you have and the kind of lifestyle you lead. If you want to have more storage, additional countertop space or a higher resale value for your property, a double vanity might just be a good idea.
Here are some considerations that’ll help you figure out whether you need a double vanity or not.
Homeowners often want to install a double vanity to boost their property’s resale value. This feature would definitely appeal to some buyers, but others may not find it necessary. That said, you should consider the market that you’re trying to attract. If your home is generally designed for couples or families, a double vanity would be an excellent addition.
Bathroom renovation companies will only recommend a double vanity if you have the space for it. Two sinks require an area that’s at least 48 inches wide. However, the second sink will take all your counter space and eliminate the option of having under-counter drawers. If you have space in your bathroom that’s at least 72 inches wide, you’ll have enough room for a double vanity as well as a decent amount of counter space and storage.
Bathroom Habits and Routines
If you’re living with a partner, you’ll surely appreciate the extra sink in your bathroom. But if your partner works on a different schedule, perhaps, a single vanity would be enough since you won’t be using the sink at the same time anyway. In this case, opting for a single vanity allows you to maximize your counter space and storage.
