As we are still in the beginning of 2013, many homeowners and prospective home buyers are thinking the same thing: where will the housing market go in 2013? Although it’s still too early to tell, house prices have gone up, indicating that more people are in the market to buy. Are you one of those homeowners who are looking to sell? If so, a bathroom remodel may be a good idea. There are very few things that you can do to add more value to your home than remodeling your bathroom; and in your bathroom renovation plans, a bathroom vanity is sure to be something you’ll want to update. However, with the host of choices out there, it can get overwhelming at times. Here are some tips for picking the best bathroom vanity for a remodel.
- Size: There are so many different bathroom vanities out there, so no matter the size of your bathroom, you’re sure to find one that matches your needs. If you have a smaller bathroom, a single sink bathroom vanity is probably the way to go. This also works if you want to include a bigger tub. If you do have more room, double sink vanities are a great idea. You probably know this if you share a sink with your husband. The shaving gunk alone is motivation to consider a double sink vanity.
- Cost: As with everything else, money matters. It’s incredibly important to set up a budget beforehand, so you have an idea of how much you’re willing to spend when it comes time to choose your bathroom vanity. If you’re looking to get a good deal, an internet retailer may be able to offer wholesale prices big box stores can’t.
- Where’s your plumbing? The size and style of your vanity will influence whether or not you need to call a plumber. Let’s say you have a single vanity now, and you want to get a double vanity. The plumbing was set for a single sink in the middle, so a double vanity will need different plumbing.
- Style and Design: After you’ve figured out the cost and size of your vanity, it’s now time to choose one. Bathroom vanities come in many different styles and designs. If you have a modern look, there are modern vanities out there. If you have a more traditional antique style to your home and bathroom, there are antique bathroom vanities out there as well. The sky is the limit when it comes to choosing a bathroom vanity for your remodel.
