Bathroom Cabinet Height

Comfort height bathroom vanities are 36″ tall to match the height of kitchen countertops. By raising the height of your vanity, your sink and countertop are also heighted for an ergonomically enhanced experience. You may have noticed this change in recent years. If you’ve seen a bathroom that is 10 years or older, you may have been able to notice that the counters are much lower than modern vanities. That’s because the standard height of a bathroom vanity is 32″ compared to that of comfort height vanities that measure 36″ tall. This is a diagram of the 61″ Point Loma Double Sink Vanity. The Point Loma is a comfort height vanity with a total height of 35 3/4″ which is just shy of the taller 36″ vanities. The Shift Away from Standard Height Vanities Comfort height has become the new standard, not only with toilets but with vanities as well. Most new bathroom cabinets are raised to promote a more healthy posture. Kitchen countertops were designed to be at the hip of normal adults to make kitchen prep easy. The only reason bathroom counters were lowered was to make the sink accessible for small children. Makes sense doesn’t it? Keeping this in mind, comfort height vanities are probably not the best for a kids bathroom. While it’s not entirely impossible for them to use the sink, it could make it more difficult for them to wash their hands. For kids bathrooms, you can install standard height vanities. Why Choose a Comfort Height Vanity Comfort height vanities reduce bending and stooping; you’re back will love you for it. Since they are taller, you don’t have to bend down as far to reach the sink. This reduces the strain on your back. Once you become accustomed to a comfort height vanity, you’ll instantly be able to tell the difference between standard vanities that are 6 inches shorter. If you’re installing a new vanity, I’d highly recommend going with comfort height cabinets. They’re taller to make washing up easier. Aside from that, there is no difference and no added problems that you have to worry about. If you’re in debate because of the kids, just go with something in between 32″-36″ to compromise or just go with a comfort height vanity and get them a stool to stand on. Floating Bathroom Vanities Don’t forget about floating bathroom vanities.  These wall-mounted vanities allow you to choose the height of your countertop by adjusting the mounting position.  They are contemporary pieces that add an air to your design. How to Tell if They’re Right for You One thing that you can do is stack up some old cardboard boxes. This may sound or look funny but it will give you a visual idea of how high your countertop would be. Set it next to the vanity you currently have installed and look at the difference. Use this comparison as a baseline to make your decision. Unique Comfort Height Bathroom Vanities Installing a vanity that is taller doesn’t necessarily mean that your cabinets have to be meek or bland. You can find beautiful comfort height vanities in all sorts of shapes, designs, colors, and styles. Below are a few of my favorite comfort height vanities. The Caroline Double Vanity from Virtu USA. Measures 36.2H x 71.9W x 22.1D. The Cansano Vanity is 36″ tall and is the perfect example of a comfort height bathroom cabinet.

Vanities come in a variety of height arrangements including standard height, comfort height, and vessel sink height. Standard vanity height is often contested and there’s not really a regulated “standard height.” The standard height of a bathroom vanity is determined by averages of the most common heights of bath vanities.

Explore Your Options The vanity can define your bathroom space. Since bathrooms are usually separate from the rest of your home, you can deviate from your typical style. If your home is traditional, you can opt for a more modern look in your bathroom. Consider the following options before purchasing: Color and Finish Vanities can be made of glass, metal or wood and typically come in white, black, mid-tone brown or espresso finishes. If you’re feeling more adventurous, you can paint a wood cabinet the color of your choice. Hardware Check the description on the vanity that you’re interested in purchasing. Some will already include the door and drawer hardware.Size In a small bathroom, a single vanity is probably your only option. But with a bigger bathroom you can decide if you’d like to do one larger vanity or break it up with two smaller vanities side by side.StorageIs this vanity going in a master bathroom or a powder room? A guest room or a kids’ bathroom? Think about your particular needs. If you use this bathroom every day, then ample storage space (including drawers and countertop space) is going to be more important to you.Wood TypeTypes can range from basic engineered wood, birch or pine to more expensive materials such as Asian hardwood, oak, maple and more.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo PRO Bay Kitchen Gallery Ltd. Hope you were able to get your vanity cabinets at the right height to suit you. It seems like a lot of the lower end builders are using the 36″ vanity height without giving you any choice in the matter, even if you ask. Someone said “who made the standard to be 32”, well, I ask in return “who decided that the standard should be 36”. It should be based on your preference taking into consideration re-sale value as well. In 11 years we have sold only 3 vanities that were 36″ high, and those customers were close to 6′ tall. We ask our customers whether they want standard height or “back-saver” height. We have never had any complaints about the standard height. If your cabinet maker won’t do it — find someone who will. Almost anything is possible in design and specs now. Like Bookmark October 1, 2015 at 10:56AM
