Vanities are tall, not comfort height...yikes...help
We are building a new home, and I'm afraid I've made a terrible mistake.
We are not moved in yet, but yesterday we moved all of our big furniture into the garage and bonus room to get it out of storage. So we were able to spend a good amount of time there yesterday. That is when I noticed that my vanities are taller. I haven't measured yet, but I'm pretty sure they are counter height.
Now, I remember a short phone conversation with my cabinet maker a while back, and she asked me if I wanted my vanities "comfort height". Well, I didn't know what that was, I assumed vanities were just "vanity height", and that comfort height was something special/different than a regular vanity, so I said no, just make them regular height. Meaning whatever height a vanity usually is. And I guess I was stupid not to inquire further. Well, she took "regular height" to be counter height apparently, while I thought regular height was "vanity height" in my terms.
Now after looking into vanities a bit more, it seems comfort height is the normal height of a vanity, and I got counter height, because I misunderstood. I don't know if I should say something, or if there is even anything they can do about it now that they are all installed.
My husband is tall 6'5", kids are 5 and 8, but are tall for their age and more than likely will be tall kids. I'm 5'5", but i'm least worried about myself, I can deal with it (I think), since it was a mistake on my part.
I'm bummed because we were just to where the kids didn't need a step stool in the bathroom anymore, and now they will again.
Any advice for me? Anyone out there have the taller vanities and have some good news for me, as to why I will like them? I'd like to find a good reason to just keep them and enjoy them, rather than regretting having them! Or is there anything my cabinet maker can even do to shorten them? I'm thinking he probably can't.
