Are Bathroom Vanity Cabinets Enough?

Are Bathroom Vanity Cabinets Enough?

There are bathroom cabinets, and then there are bathroom vanity cabinets. Some homeowners have both, while others have only one or the other. Which one is right for you?

That greatly depends on your bathroom size and use case, but let’s get into the details first about the difference between these two bathroom cupboards.

Bathroom Cabinets With Sink Or No Sink?

All cabinets in a bathroom are bathroom cabinetry, but not all cabinets are bathroom vanity cabinets. A bathroom vanity cabinet is specifically one that is built into the counter that houses the sink. Any other cabinet, freestanding or otherwise, is considered just a bathroom cabinet.

Many bathrooms, especially master bathrooms, often have bathroom vanity cabinets since this is also a good way to hide the plumbing for conventional sinks and make things less unsightly.

Do You Need More Cabinets?

Bathroom vanity cabinets are often used to store grooming essentials, makeup, and other appliances and accessories that help one get ready to start or end the day. As a result, they can play an important part in personal care.

However, other cabinets in the bathroom can play equally important roles in storing amenities like extra towels, soaps, lotions, and accessories for luxury bathing experiences,

Usage Matters

The purpose of the cabinets must match the bathroom into which they are being installed. A luxury bathing suite, for example, has different storage requirements than a half-bath or powder room.

This all changes once more when the area is used as a “primary bathroom” by other family members who, unlike the parents, will not be utilizing it most of the time to wash, brush their teeth, or even clean dogs.

Your home situation and how you will use your bathroom will determine just how much space you need. Making the right choice can add more value and utility to your home.
