The first tools you need for getting your new bathroom vanity are a pencil and paper. Write down the exact measurements of the area where you will locate the vanity. Include height, width and maximum depth so it will not project enough to block access. Measure the location of the plumbing and electrical outlets to ensure there will not be issues, or needed outlets won’t be blocked. Too big is as bad as too small-a large one could overcrowd the room.
If measurements show that the right size for year bath is a 42″ bathroom vanity, these are more expensive than the smaller sizes. Prices easily exceed $1,000. Online sites often contain great deals and it is possible to find some for less. Whatever style, brand, color or feature you could want, you will find it online among the amazing volume of retailers online. The intense competition on the internet helps generate great prices that regular stores or big box home improvement centers have trouble beating.
One great online site for deals is eBay. Some are new but many are used and most are available at very competitive prices. For example, the 42″ Modern Single Sink vanity cabinet and mirror is priced for $350. It includes great features like two towel racks, a mirror, two drawers and a counter next to the sink. Another sample is a granite topped bathroom vanity cabinet, single basin that is also 42 inches, and sells for $600. An important note is that the price includes shipping, a big ticket item when buying these kinds of items, especially granite, which is quite heavy. The granite cabinet topped vanity is an impressive piece of furniture with 3 large drawers in a rich brown shade and black granite top. This is a very elegant vanity, and if matched to other black bathroom fixtures would create a striking decor.
