A bathroom is a place of peace, privacy, and comfort. It is one of the most important rooms in a home and must be shown care, love, and respect. It is not surprising that many remodels include bathroom work. Lately there has been a significant rise in the popularity of having taller bathroom vanities. The standard nowadays is to have a bathroom remodeling contractor make the vanity thirty inches high. This is actually six inches shorter than the kitchen. For people who are prone to body aches, an extra six inches of height can make the counter of a vanity comfortable. This is because a vanity that is taller than the average bathroom counter actually eases the strain on the back so that there is no need to bend and stoop to wash your hands. This is beneficial to everyone, but mostly aids senior citizens and people prone to back aches. A few inches can be the difference between future pain, strain, and injury compared to a comfortable setting that eases all possibility of discomfort.
Although there are benefits to taller bathroom vanities, there is always a negative side. One of the largest problems will be faced by families with small children. Having a taller vanity will make it difficult for a child to use. This can be remedied, however. If a child will be using the vanity as well, space for a stool can be incorporated into the design. It can even be made to aesthetically suit the room. There is also the possibility to build a stool that slides from beneath the bathroom vanity. This can be a fun and lovely way to upgrade your bathroom and still meet everyone’s needs.
Along with the easing strain on your back, adding six inches to a vanity’s height will also create more room for storage. If you have several bathroom cleaners or need more space to store your toiletries, this is a great way to make this space. No longer will you have items that belong in the bathroom stored in inconvenient locations far away from the bathroom. You will have a designated place in the bathroom to store what you need and a little more.
If you love your home and wish to give yourself something extra in the bathroom, consider a taller vanity when you choose to remodel. Although it will be taller than what a child can easily use, it can be easily compensated by using a stool. A taller vanity will benefit the health of adults in your home. It will also help you keep your home nice and organized by allowing extra storage space. A bathroom remodel is not purely for aesthetic purposes. You should consider health and practicality as well.
