Customization isn’t always necessary, but many people like to buy custom items to help create a more original décor and look for their home. Aside from this, customization is very useful when you have awkward spaces in your home. This is when sourcing out custom furniture builders would be key. One particular room in the home that often requires custom furniture, whether the home is new or old, is the bathroom. Bathrooms have the challenge of having to meet a variety of needs, and many modern commercial bathroom pieces just don’t take everything into consideration. Here are a few tips when shopping for custom bathroom vanities.

  1. Storage

This is probably the most important feature of any bathroom vanity. If you don’t have a linen closet, or easy access to one for your bathroom  having plenty of storage in your bathroom is important. On top of having room for towels, you’ll need space for toiletries, makeup, and even somewhere to put extra bathroom tissue. You can accomplish all of this by choosing a vanity that has a combination of cupboards and drawers, or one that incorporates a tall cabinet with open and cupboard covered shelves.

Another way you can achieve sufficient storage is by keeping the design simple, but elongating it. If you have the space, creating an extra-long vanity is a good idea, or planning your bathroom layout to make space for a vanity and a separate storage cabinet.

  1. Details

After you get your storage needs decided upon, you’ll need to determine if you require a custom vanity with enough surface space for one or two sinks. You will have to take the plumbing of these sinks into consideration when assessing your storage needs, as below counter plumbing will take up some of your cupboard space. The height of your cabinets can also be customized – as well as the depth. This is great for narrow rooms or for anyone who like a taller than the average counter surface.

Another important detail is the vanity material itself. A lot of commercial vanities are made of MDF or particle wood, and covered with a veneer. It’s affordable, but it’s lacking in durability and quality. Custom bathroom vanities can be found in hardwood, with a matching hardwood counter space, or can be designed with an alternate counter material in mind.

  1. Finishing touches

By choosing to buy a customizable bathroom vanity, you can select the finish or color that best fits with your bathroom and even select smaller custom details that you know will be important for your overall vision. This may include cutting a recess hole for a vessel sink, which is much smaller than those for traditional sinks.

It’s better for your home décor and your wallet to go with custom furniture pieces whenever you can. Although you pay more initially for the piece and its customizations, the quality of the workmanship and the materials guarantee your piece, and therefore your money, will last longer and go further than if you simply bought something out of a commercial warehouse.
