You might be surprised to see what a difference it can make to replace your old, worn-out bathroom cabinetry with something brand new. While there are lots of DIY tips online that claim to completely re-do your bathroom for under $100, the truth is that there is no compromise when it comes to quality. If your existing cabinetry has scratches, gouges, broken pieces, and missing hardware, there’s no point in going to the trouble of painting it. A brand new solid maple bathroom vanity and top quality bathroom cabinets will provide you with many years of dependable, great-looking results. Regardless of the size of your Providence bathroom remodel or budget, it is worth it to invest in a new vanity as the focal point of your project.
Why the Vanity is So Essential
When you walk into a bathroom, the first thing you notice will likely be the vanity. The color, the style, the size, and the shape. Next, you will probably take a look at the sink and countertop to see the color, material, and texture. Lighting and plumbing fixtures, wall tile, flooring, and accessories will all fall into place somewhere after the vanity and cabinets. It is essential to focus on these areas when you start making plans for a bathroom remodel in Rhode Island. Take stock of your current cabinets and start thinking about how much different the space will look, feel, and function if they were to be replaced.
In some cases, you might not have to replace anything else in your Providence bathroom remodel to update the look of an old bathroom. Maybe a fresh coat of paint in a new complimentary color or some decorative accessories, but in many cases, simply removing an old vanity and installing a brand new option will make all the difference. Because the vanity is so integral to the overall look and feel of the space, it pays to take time when shopping for materials to use in your project. Top quality bathroom cabinets and solid maple bathroom vanity options are available at the Cabinet Factory Outlet in Swansea, MA.
Custom and Semi-Custom Vanities and Cabinets
There are a lot of definitions for words used by designers and contractors that you might be surprised to learn. For example, some vanities are cabinets, but not all cabinets are vanities. Confused yet? You’re not alone! A fully custom Providence bathroom remodel involves the design and literal construction of the cabinetry to create a completely unique solution for an odd-sized or shaped bathroom space. A semi-custom bathroom remodel in Rhode Island can include some pre-made elements of high quality mixed in with custom elements, including hardware, fixtures, and much more.
Bathroom cabinets that are topped with a sink are considered to be vanities. However, a small built-in or stand-alone table with a chair and a mirror are also considered to be a vanity or make-up table, depending on who’s talking. A solid maple bathroom vanity is meant to be topped with a sink and countertop, so it pays to choose materials that will work well with each other and the overall design of the space. Extra cabinets that are only used for storage and do not have a sink on top are considered to be top quality bathroom cabinets. Once you understand the subtle difference between the two, planning your project suddenly becomes a lot easier.
Cabinet Size Matters
Another difference that you should know is the variations between kitchen cabinets and a solid maple bathroom vanity. Kitchen cabinets are usually 24-inches deep, while bathroom cabinets are typically 21-inches deep. In most situations, kitchen cabinets are also taller to allow for easier food prep and other kitchen functions, coming in at 36-inches in height. The average bathroom cabinet or vanity with a countertop surface and a sink will come in between 30 and 32-inches in height. However, when you come to our showroom in Swansea, you will notice that our bathroom cabinets are a bit taller.
