Custom vanities may be better for you in order to maximize your storage capacity. The two main functions of a bathroom vanity are to hold a sink and provide adequate storage for the bathroom. A Vanity is essential to complete a bathroom, and is generally the focal point.
Bathroom vanities are stocked in standard sizes in order to give you a general size for your bathroom or powder room. Purchasing an in-stock vanity will often work, however often times due to the standard sizing it will leave wasted space within the room. A custom vanity is the best way to maximize storage, and overall room space. The best part about a custom vanity is that you get to choose the material, the dimensions, amount of drawers/doors and open shelving, and the finishes such as door pulls, sinks, taps, etc to ensure it goes perfectly with all your bathroom decor.
Quality & Pricing
Often times a custom vanity will be reasonably priced compared to a pre-fabricated in-stock vanity. In addition to a small price difference the quality of thecabinet is much higher. A Stronger, and Thicker material in combination with advanced carpentry joints and top of the line adhesives make for extremely well built custom vanities.
Better Hardware of course makes for a better vanity, adding european hinges, and full extension drawer slides really show that quality was not spared on the hardware. European hinges provide a strong adjustable hidden hinge with the option for soft closing and the full extension drawer slides are also available with the self closing feature and they add a seamless and sturdy slide with maximum extension verses the european slides. Custom vanities wouldn’t be very custom without the option to select a knob from a large variety of knobs, and door pulls. Knobs and pulls can be very expensive, on a vanity they can run upwards of $50 which is why it is a great value to be able to purchase these products from a wholesaler to keep the costs down wherever possible.
