Vanity placement question
We are remodeling our main bath. It's a small 5x10 bathroom. The vanity will be to the left of the entrance, toilet on same wall as vanity, and tub/shower at the end of the bathroom placed horizontally. My GC placed the vanity about 11" away from the corner. His reasoning, which I think is valid, is that the vanity width, while standard 22", is too much for the size of our bathroom. The width between room corner and door is exactly 22" so if the vanity was placed I. The corner, it would jet out right upto the door, ie cut into the trim and possibly interfere with the door opening. Making the door smaller in order to get more width on the wall is not an option for us due to cost and timing.
So question to you all is whether it would look weird to have the vanity placed 11" away from the corner? GC suggested putting a hamper in that space. All pictures I've seen and every bathroom I've ever see has vanity tucked in a corner.
While his suggestion is practical, will it look good? Look fwd to GW user input. Thanks.
