During almost every master bath remodel the question of whether to go with a double vanity or single inevitably pops up. It’s often difficult to decide which is best. The truth is, there is no right or wrong answer to whether double sink vanities are superior to single vanities. Each person must decide this for themselves, and the only way to do this is to take into account their individual needs, budget, and the space they are working in. Read on for ways to determine which is best for your home.
Top reasons to opt for a double vanity
- Two people use the bathroom in the morning to get ready. If a couple finds themselves fighting for space in the morning, the double will make life a lot easier for you
- The bathroom is large. If you have space, a double vanity looks lovely. It gives the space a balanced look. The extra cabinet space is also quite useful.
- If selling the home shortly is a very real possibility. Some potential buyers have a difficult time considering a single vanity. The thought of having to share a sink with their significant other may be a huge turn-off. A double vanity can more than pay for itself with the extra value that it adds to the home.
Top reasons to opt for a single vanity
- Space is a concern. If the bathroom is tiny cramming a double vanity in will make it appear cramped and too crowded. It’s better to use a single to make the room seem more spacious.
- Cost is a major concern. A single vanity is less expensive than a double. With a double, the homeowner is paying for two of everything. Two sinks, two faucets, and twice the plumbing work.
- More counter space. When you only have to cut into the counter for one sink, you’ll have all that extra counter space to hold makeup, perfumes, and hair care products.
No matter which sink preference you choose, a bathroom remodel is always a good way to add value to a home. Updated kitchens and bathrooms are the most common items on a buyers wish list. Choose the sink vanity that meets the needs of your household, whether that means a double vanity for easier mornings or a single to cut down on costs.
