Allens Kitchen & Bath, Where your dreams come home


Bath Vanities

Cabinetry in baths is usually referred to as “vanities,” especially when talking about the cabinets underneath the sink area. The cabinetry and vanity you choose will really set your bathroom’s style.bath sink photo
 
Vanities and cabinets come in 3 basic types: stock, semi-custom and custom.

1. Stock cabinets are manufactured in bulk in a variety of standard sizes and colors. They're a good affordable choice.

2. Semi-custom cabinets use better quality materials, are available in a much wider variety and styles, are made to order and fit more precisely than stock cabinets. The manufacturer produces them in predetermined increments. Often a spacer may be needed to conceal unused wall space, and that sacrifices storage. The range of materials, designs, finishes and accessories will not be as broad with semi-custom cabinets, but they cost less than fully custom cabinets.

3. Custom cabinets are built to exact specifications, made from the highest quality materials in many styles and cost more than stock or semi-custom cabinets. They offer endless options with regard to materials, designs, finishes and accessories. Custom cabinets require the longest lead time and are the most expensive choice.

“When you think about cabinets and vanities in a bathroom,” says Ray Clouatre of Allen’s Kitchen & Bath, “You’re thinking about storage.” In a bathroom that is used by several people, you’ll need to plan enough storage so everyone’s items have their own place. A hamper is a key addition to a bathroom to maintain order, and they can be built right into your vanity or cabinetry.

Today, vanities are higher than in the past. Most vanities are between 32-1/2” and 34-1/2” high. Depending on the height of the people using the bath, you can determine the height for your vanity so no one needs to stoop.

Cabinet pulls, knobs and handles – your cabinets’ hardware – are often called the “jewelry” of the home. Hardware comes in a wide variety of styles at all price points and contributes to a truly customized look. Your bath designer can help you decide among the many choices available to complete the look of your cabinetry and vanity.
