The first step of course, is to create a plan and set a budget. Your plan should consider the size of your bathroom, the amount you are willing to pay, and the area in which you have to build your vanity. The plan should be concise in inclusive of all pertinent information. You should know the size of the vanity you will need in regards to the location in which it will be placed. You will need exact measurements (a good rule of thumb is to measure twice and cut once). Finally you need to understand the design of your bathroom and the theme you are trying to create. You might also want to reign in your design nature in order to accommodate your budget for this project. While Victorian designs are more elegant they are also more costly. Contemporary designs are often the least expensive.
Whatever type of vanity top you choose from one of the big box suppliers, the tops that you can take with you are fairly limited and conventional in appearance and configuration. However, those retailers always have a wide selection of vanity tops from various manufacturers that can be custom ordered. Prices are reasonable and you can choose from a wide variety of sink shapes and placements in the top. If youre re-doing an older house or simply prefer a traditional built-in vanity, this is an excellent way to add a little pop to your bathroom while maintaining a traditional appearance. Another thing to consider, if youre planning on doing it yourself, is the relative difficulty of connecting the supply lines and the drain. When it comes to modern sink and faucet installation, it has gotten simpler for do-it-yourselfers to make the necessary connections. The problem lies in access to the connecting points. With built-in vanity bases, as well as some of the fine furniture versions and the occasional free-standing ones, youre going to wind up with your head stuck in a cabinet, trying to thread a nut in a hard to reach area.
Deciding on a built-in vanity is a two-stage process. First, you choose the vanity base. Walk into any home remodeling center and you will find rows of stock vanity bases bolted to the wall, ready to take home. There are variations in style, including length, height, number and placement of doors and drawers, but thats about it. If you have an older, traditional home, this style is most likely your best choice. Now that you have your vanity base selected, theres still something missing...the vanity top. Most of the time, the vanity top will be made from cultured marble, ceramic, or granite, and usually the sink (or basin or vessel, depending on the manufacturers description) will be an integral part of the top, forming a one-piece unit that will not leak. In some cases, a vanity top will have a cut-out (or cut-outs in the case of a double vanity) to allow the basin (or basins) to drop in.
