Top Small Vanity Ideas to Love and Inspire Your Next Reno
If you have a small bathroom or half bath, getting the right vanity can seem like a challenge. So, we thought you would appreciate a few ideas to kick-start your next renovation project.
First, though, let’s explore what we mean by a ‘small’ bathroom.
1. Small Bathrooms or Half Baths
Also known as powder rooms, these half baths are small bathrooms with dimensions of 3-4 ft. x 6-8 ft. and a total area ranging from 18-32 sq. ft. To improve access for guests and spare them the hassle of having to enter your personal space or take the stairs, these bathrooms are typically installed near common areas.
Given their compact size, these bathrooms only have the basics, such as a freestanding vanity, a pedestal sink, and a toilet. If your home lacks a half bath or small bathroom, consider transforming a storage room or spare closet into one, as it can help improve your home’s resale value.
Even though you may not have a lot of space to work with, that does not mean you cannot upgrade your space. Here are some things to keep in mind when shopping for your vanity.
2. What Should You Look for in a Small Vanity?
At The Reno Superstore, we offer a wide range of affordable vanities to suit any bathroom. But it is good to understand exactly what to look for so you can make the best purchase. Here are a couple of things to keep in mind.
- Measure the Area of Installation
An accurate measurement of the area of installation is mandatory, whether you are buying at one of The Reno Superstore’s two locations or shopping online.
Before you set out to shop, make sure you measure the area of installation and write down the width and required height for best results. There are many benefits to shopping online for your home improvement supplies, but don’t forget to get the dimensions right.
- Stick to the Existing Foot Traffic
Unless you intend to tear down walls or make significant changes to the bathroom’s existing layout, it is best to stick to its current design. Take the door swing into consideration and make sure the area of installation does not hinder the space’s natural foot traffic and that it is easy to clean around it.
- Keep a Budget
Always have a budget. We can’t say it enough. Going in to buy any renovation product without one is never a good idea. How much do you intend to spend on a vanity? There are ample affordable options in our store, even on a modest budget, so you can expect to find something lovely for your space.
- Consider Storage
Everyone has different needs. So, before you finalize your vanity, consider how much storage you need. Since it is a small vanity, realistically you cannot expect to store a lot, but paying attention to this can help you narrow down your choices.
- Vanity Placement
Installing a vanity can be difficult because it can cost you floor space if it is not placed properly. Therefore, if you do not have much room, make sure it is positioned correctly and does not obstruct the rest of the space; you could even put it in a corner or off to the side for easy access.
Best Vanity Styles
Now that you have some idea about how to shop for a vanity, here are our top picks for vanity styles for small bathrooms.
1. Spacious Storage
Having a small vanity does not necessarily mean saying goodbye to storage. Your vanity can still be small yet have sufficient space to store everything you need. The best size vanities for small bathrooms are usually 30 inches wide, but you can always choose something that is even smaller, like 24 inches or so, as per your needs.
Take a look at this vanity from Tesoro’s Relax Collection. It comes with a single sink, one drawer, and a small cabinet on wheels. While it is small, it is still spacious. Check out our vanity section to find discount bathroom vanities in Toronto.
2. Sleek Silhouette
Want to create a modern look without putting in too much effort? Then pick simple, minimalist designs. The thing about modern bathroom vanities is that their sleek design gives a polished look to your bathroom. Choose petite vanities with a sleek silhouette and glossy countertops to create an upscale appearance.
For a stunning look, make sure your chosen vanity complements the existing bathroom floor and walls for a more put-together look.
3. Rustic Farmhouse
Are you looking for a vanity that celebrates natural and rustic styles? Something in the farmhouse style may be perfect. Remember: small spaces do not mean that you have to compromise on style.
Rustic-style vanities are available in small sizes too, which makes them perfect for your farm-style house. For instance, check out this vanity, whose natural wood colour and subtle minimalist handles help tie the look together.
Please note: When shopping for vanities, the faucet and sink may not be included. If you are not sure, contact the staff.
4. Custom Vanity
Here’s the thing about tight spaces: they can get tricky. That means you may not find something to exactly fit in that odd corner of your small bathroom. But it’s okay because there is always room for customization.
Please note that customization is not cheap, but it is the best choice for small, awkward spaces. That way, you can get something that perfectly fits your space and uses every bit of an otherwise awkward nook.
For the best results, hire professionals who take on custom vanity projects.
5. Pedestal Sink
If you have very little space in your bathroom, a pedestal sink is the answer. This classic space-saving option is perfect for small bathrooms. That means no storage space, but to make up for that, you can always install a wall cabinet that doubles as a mirror. This clever upgrade can make a big difference to the overall usability of the space and improve its functionality.
6. Modern Freestanding Vanity
Bathroom vanities have become popular for many reasons, one of which is that they are the quickest way to transform the space. The best way to make your small bathroom look modern is by adding a stylish modern vanity.
Check out this stunning blue vanity from Vetro. This modern design with subtle gold handles adds a rich look to the space. Its unique drawer design makes it the perfect choice for stylish Toronto homes. This particular vanity is available in various sizes and two stunning colours.
7. Floating Style
It is difficult to make a small bathroom look spacious and not claustrophobic. Fortunately, mirrors and lights can enhance the space, while the addition of a floating vanity can create the illusion of space. The latter are also known as wall-mount vanity units and are fitted to your bathroom wall.
Make sure your wall is strong enough to support the installation of your vanity. These vanities also require different plumbing, so make sure your existing plumbing supports a floating vanity.
