48-inch Bathroom Vanities
On the hunt for a new bathroom vanity? Find out if a 48-inch bathroom vanity is the right choice for your bathroom renovation or remodel by reading our handy buyer’s guide.
A 48-inch vanity is one of the smallest standard sized, mid-range vanity around, with the next smallest size coming in at 36 inches. You’ll often find the 48-inch bathroom vanities in family bathrooms because they offer ample storage space for household supplies and toiletries. Plus, you can usually designate different drawers or compartments for each person.
If you like the look of a 48-inch vanity, yet have an excessive abundance of room to fill, consider purchasing two vanities that can either be joined together with a bridge or spaced around a master bathroom for an extravagant feeling.
Many people consider 48-inch bathroom vanities to be one of the most versatile options around. A 48-inch, double-sink bathroom vanity is the minimum recommended size to accommodate two sinks, but you can also opt for a single-sink vanity in the same size.
If you’re shopping for a 48-inch bathroom vanity with a top, you’ll find a range of options to suit different design aesthetics and lay out priorities. For example, you can go for a classic, single undermount or drop-in sink, and enjoy plenty of counter space whether it’s offset or centered. Or, you can create a spaciously dramatic effect by opting for a farmhouse-style or oversized vessel sink that takes up most of the countertop. Don’t forget, you can also buy one of these vanities without a top to customize the finished product with the perfect sink and cabinet combination.
48-Inch Vanity Considerations
Keep in mind if counter space is a priority, you won’t have much if you go with a double-sink bathroom vanity, as the two sinks will take up most of the room. Try maximizing space by going for undermount sinks.
