30" or 36" Vanity in 5' x 8' Master Bath?
My wife and I are going crazy trying to decide what size vanity to put in our 5' x 8' master bath remodel. We're looking at furniture-style Strasser vanities. Torn between 30" and 36".
The old vanity that's in there is 36", and feels slightly big for the space. The greatest implication is that there's not really room for a small garbage can between the vanity and the toilet, so the small garbage can is in front of the left side of the tub.
We were leaning towards replacing it with a 30", which would allow for a garbage between the vanity and toilet and make the room feel a little bit less cramped visually. However, since this is our master bath, should we be concerned with the loss of storage and counter space that would result? We will be also getting a medicine cabinet.
Any thoughts? Is there a "standard" vanity size for a bathroom of this size?
