40 Inch Bathroom Vanities
If you’re looking at 40-inch bathroom vanities, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with options. After all, 40-inch vanities fit just about anywhere, from generous powder rooms to cozy ensuites to a regular family bathroom. As a result of their versatility, vanity designers have come up with a ton of options for you to consider and choose from. The good news? More choice is easier to work with than less. But if you’re still at a loss on how to shop for a 40-inch dream bathroom vanity, here are some important things you’ll want to consider.
The average size of a bathroom sink is 30 inches. This means you’ll have ample room to add your bathroom sink, giving you the choice of any variety from vessel to undermount to drop-in sinks. If you want to pick your own sink, you’ll want to look for a 40-inch bathroom vanity without a top. You can also shop for a 40-inch vanity top with a sink, simplifying the buying and installation process and creating a simple, streamlined look.
Can you have a double sink 40-inch vanity? Technically no. While smaller bathroom sinks exist, cramming two of them side-by-side probably won’t look great. There are a couple of tricks to get a dual 40-inch vanity though. First, you can install a self-rimming sink that takes over the entire top of the sink, and pair it with two faucets coming out of the wall. Another option is to purchase two forty-inch vanities and place them side-by-side, or in different areas of the bathroom, to have his and hers vanity setups.
Marvelous Vanity Mirrors
Your dream bathroom vanity won’t be complete with a coordinating mirror, ideally one that picks up the color or finish of your bathroom vanity. The proper size for a 40-inch bathroom vanity mirror is approximately four to six inches smaller than the vanity itself. So in this case, you’ll want something in the 34-36” range.
The best part of a 40-inch vanity is you’re really taking advantage of your bathroom’s small footprint by incorporating more storage. These well-sized vanities generally have multiple cabinets, or a stack of drawers beside a cabinet. You may also be able to find a vanity that only has drawers if you prefer that look.
Another thing to think about when it comes to storage is your sink placement. You can choose from offset or centered sinks, keeping in mind that that placement will eat into your storage space.
Finally the depth of your vanity will have an impact on storage as well. 18-inch and 21-inch depth vanities are the most common, but if you have more space, you may want to consider a super deep 24-inch vanity.
As a supremely popular and common vanity size, there is no shortage of dream 40-inch bathroom vanities on the market. As long as you find a style and finish you love, it’s easy to customize or purchase an out-of-the-box solution to perfect your bathroom design.
