If you are planning to buy a bathroom vanity in the Toronto or Mississauga area, you need to understand how to shop for it. 

Bathroom vanities are much more than just a style statement. They also add tons of storage and make your bathroom more functional. 

At The Reno Superstore, we see many customers picking vanities purely for how they look. But there are other considerations. So, if you are thinking about buying a new bathroom vanity in Toronto or Mississauga, or upgrading your current one, use these tips to help you shop smarter. 

Let’s get started. 

Steps to Buy the Right Bathroom Vanity in Toronto or Mississauga

How to Buy a Bathroom Vanity in Toronto/Mississauga

The right vanity should fit both your style preferences and functional needs. So, here are a few tips to follow when shopping for bathroom vanities in Toronto, Mississauga, or elsewhere.  

1. Consider the Layout 

Are you planning to renovate your bathroom from scratch? If not, then you will have to stick to its existing layout.

Evaluate the bathroom’s layout to pinpoint exactly where you want to place your vanity. Not doing so will make installation more difficult.

2. Measure Your Bathroom

Make sure the area for the vanity is clear of doors or other obstructions that could hamper installation. Measure the area as accurately as possible before you start shopping. The minimum requirement is about 18 inches of vanity width. Contact an expert if you face any difficulty. Obviously, the vanity you choose should be proportionate to your bathroom’s dimensions. 

3. Access Your Needs

Everyone’s needs are different, so pay close attention to who is going to access the bathroom. Do you require a vanity countertop option that is budget-friendly, or can you splurge? Consider the ideal vanity height and how much storage space you need for towels and toiletries. How many people will use the bathroom at a time? And will it be used by older people or children? These are all important questions to ask before you start shopping.

4. Consider Your Budget 

Have a budget in front of you before you start shopping for your bathroom vanity. Not doing so can quickly lead to overspending. 

The price you do end up paying will depend on factors like the vanity’s size and the countertop material you choose. Don’t forget to factor in transportation and installation costs if needed. 

The Reno Superstore sells a wide variety of high-quality bathroom vanities at different price points in our Toronto and Mississauga stores. (We also offer pickups in Ottawa, Montreal, London, and Barrie.) Plus, we offer easy financing. 

5. Decide on the Finish and Material 

The Reno Superstore sells contemporary vanities made with a range of materials, including wood, metal, glass, and mixes of these materials. Make sure to choose one that complements the overall style of your home decor and that aligns with your lifestyle in terms of its durability and ease of cleaning. 

As mentioned, these materials impact both the vanity’s overall price and how well it fits into your lifestyle.

6. Choose the Right Countertop and Sink 

Choose the Right Countertop and Sink

Don’t assume that the great-looking faucets, sinks, or countertop you see in an image of a bathroom vanity on a dealer’s website is included in the cost of the vanity. These are often separate charges, so ask about what is (and is not) included.

Have questions? Speak to the experts at The Reno Superstore when making your choices. 

7. Assess the Plumbing 

Do you have existing bathroom plumbing? If so then it’s smarter (and cheaper) to buy a vanity with suitable plumbing than to buy one and then have to redo your pipes. 

8. Examine the Online and In-Store Options 

Make sure to read online reviews of any store before you decide who to visit. Then visit the showroom to look over your bathroom vanity options in person. This will clarify the store’s level of service and product quality. Plus, seeing a vanity in person will let you visualize how it will fit into your bathroom and pick the best option. 

Hint: if the salesperson is trying too hard to make a sale, move on. Finally, make sure that you check out the company’s return and exchange policies carefully before making a purchase.
