Due to a water leak, I'm in the process of a quickie bathroom renovation. The insurance adjuster told me to go to Lowe's and choose a vanity. What has me stumped is what type to get - the free standing look, or the built-in cabinet type for lack of a better description. It is a very small bathroom . The current 1980's site-built vanity is 41" long.
If I go with the 36" free-standing type, there would only be 2 1/2" between the wall and the end of the vanity. Is that enough room to look OK, or is that not enough space to look "appropriate" for the space?
If I order a built-in type, vanities don't come in that length, so it will require a 2"filler between the wall and the cabinet. Will it look odd having a filler on one side but not the other?
Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.
