Suggestion of a vanity in a small bathroom

AVmanNovember 29, 2013

Unfortunately, our old house's master bath is smaller than a lot of 1/2 bathrooms and that is causing a lot of trouble to find a replacement vanity. The vanity can not be more than 22" at the base. The Orange or Blue places selling mostly MDF made vanities which I think may not last long.
Does anyone have any suggestion? My budget is $600 or less.
Aside that, does anyone has any strong feeling against a basin with small round shaped bowl. We have a toddler and I just feel that a smaller basin will cause lot of trouble with misfired gulps of water and mouthwash.

I just installed a Ronbow vanity cabinet/sink. The cabinet is available in I think 26 & 30" width. The bow front sink mounts on top of the cabinet. There in minimal but adequate for us storage in the cabinet. We had this in our small 1/2 bath in our last home and my wife insisted on it in the new small bath in our remodel. It was more than I wanted to spend, but it is a really nice fixture and the 12-13" deep cabinet seems to create space in the small bathroom.

Our bathrooms (especially our MB) are small as well. We had a local guy make our vanities, modeled after the Sonia Europa vanity. We stuck to the Europa's dimensions for the most part (ours are taller, so the drawers and doors/open space are proportionately taller as well), because we wanted to use the Sonia sinktops with ours. If you are planning to use separate counters/sinks, then you would have the flexibility to have your vanity made to your specs.

It might be worth checking with some local shops/cabinet makers, and see if they can make one to fit your budget. Our guy flaked out on us a few times (had his own personal issues going on at the time), but we were able to get well-made vanities with some nice features (the customized height as I'd mentioned, as well as Blum soft-close drawer glides), at a decent price.

We just installed two vanities by Fairmont Designs. They're both decent quality. I checked online and they make 21" vanities, close to your budget. I'd recommend a vanity over a sink in anything other than a powder room.
