  4. Storage: When looking at vanity units, ensure you chose a piece that not only fits suitably in the area but also provides sufficient storage capacity. The main reason people install units is for storage.
  5. Size: It’s important to plan ahead, ensure you have all the measurements of your bathroom written down before you go shopping. It is imperative to choose the right size, you don’t want a unit so small it gets lost in the room or one too big that overpowers the space. Talk to the experts when viewing units.
  6. Design: When it comes to colour and design, think about what already exisits in your space, if you have a very traditional styled room, an ultra modern high gloss unit problay wont look right. There are various types of options available in the market when it come to bathroom vanities; which gives you lots of alternatives to choose from.
