Consider how involved a remodel can be, decorating a bathroom can be an arduous process. You will be asking questions like shower or bath? Mosaic tile or checkered? Should the curtains match the soap dispenser? What kind of sink? The last one is easy enough to answer: if you want to maximize your space and amp up your aesthetic, go for a bathroom vanity. As one of the leading names in bathroom decor, James Martin has a wide variety of pieces to choose from. Their vanities are some of the most high-quality and popular out there.
Consider the Size
As in any home improvement undertaking, one of the most important questions to ask yourself before you begin shopping around is this: how much space you will be working with? Bathrooms are typically not huge, but will probably have quite a bit of traffic. Make sure you account for opening doors, trash bins, hampers, etc. You will want to have plenty of space to maneuver when you are cleaning, dressing, or grooming. Luckily, James Martin has a great selection of small, one-sink vanities, so that restrictions of size don’t have to equal restriction of aesthetic.

Color and Material
Keep in mind where your bathroom vanity is going to be living out its days: the bathroom. A damp, warm space without much air circulation. You are going to want your vanity to be made of a material that is not too vulnerable to humidity. James Martin vanities are all made of authentic hardwood, and so they won’t break down like cheaper materials. When it comes to color, it all depends on your decor. Are you going for a breezy beach aesthetic or a warmer, homier feel? Vanities are as diverse as your individual style; they come in varieties from the cool modern, to the heavy gothic.
Obviously the most important part of a vanity is the sink, but the mirror comes in at a close second. Some bathrooms come with mirrors built in, but many don’t, so consider this when shopping for vanities. In more elaborate styles, the mirror is a part of the vanity itself, and in some they come separately. Many James Martin vanities have optional mirrors as add-ons that you can specify at time of ordering. Also, many come with an option of countertop–stone, marble, quartz, the list goes on.
Keep It Organized
As well as adding style and elegance to your bathroom, vanities provide you with an invaluable resource: storage space. Whether your bathroom is big or small, you can never have too many shelves. Many styles of vanities come with cabinets or drawers, and can be great space savers. There is nothing more irritating than not being able to find something when you are in a hurry, and a vanity with storage keeps everything in one place.
Two is Better than One
Another possibility to consider if you have the space and the budget: a double sink vanity. Many of James Martin’s designs come in both one-faucet and two-faucet designs. This is great if more than one person will regularly be using the bathroom, and a must-have for a group. Just keep in mind that your style options will be dependent on your plumbing; you will need to factor in the location of pipes when deciding on placement and sizing.
Bathroom overhauls can be daunting, but with James Martin you can rest assured that you are getting top-quality for your dollar. With countless styles, finishes, and sizes, you are sure to find a vanity that fits your proportions, and your aesthetic.
