Adding a Small Double Sink Vanity to your Small Bathroom


Julia Ritzenthaler

In the beginning of the design process of remodeling an existing bathroom, one of the first things to consider is the size of the space; what is going to fit and howif necessarycan I make the space appear larger and more user friendly. For instance, incorporating a double sink vanity, although typically a large piece, it can make a room appear larger. This is because they do come in narrow sizes and when using a double with nice cabinet space, it eliminates the need for other storage units in the room. The majority of the time, there is plenty of space you just need to use a bit of imagination and innovation. Employing a small double sink vanity for tight spaces can be a fun and challenging project to pursue.


Start by creating a plan of action. Tight interior spaces call for very careful planning. Having too many things in the room will make the room feel smaller and more closed in, for sure. This includes things like storage and shelving units, visible toiletries and appliances. Doing a bit of cleaning and clearing beforehand is about the easiest way to start planning your bathroom design. Take away products from beneath the sink. Jot down items you are using everyday as well as those you find have been sitting around for ages, throw the latter away. If you have items you have yet to use, go through them and discard anything with an expired date or that you haven’t used in more than six months. Now that you have cleared up your existing bathroom a bit, you now have a clearer picture of what you can do with the space. Start by measuring everything, the overall size of the room, the space between the top of the vanity and the ceiling, etc… Keep those numbers with you while you shop. Since you absolutely want a double bathroom vanity, prioritize that. Then move onto other furnishings in your bathroom. You’ll find that once you incorporate the new vanity, you really will no longer need that side table, or towel cabinet, or shelving unit. Once you remove items like this, you will find that space becomes much more open and clean feeling. Forget about lamps and go with small light fixtures that can be attached to the wall to save space. Next you can move on to bath mirrors. Your new vanity will probably have two separate sinks, but you may want to have one very large mirror that can accommodate both you and your spouse while you are using the sink. Mirrors can instantly create the illusion of space, which is why having a large vanity mirror might be advantageous. As you can see there are many ways to incorporate a double sink vanity for a small bathroom. All it takes is some creativity and ingenuity to rework the space. All will be well worth it if you push through with this interesting bathroom remodeling project. Copyright (c) 2009 Julia Ritzenthaler
