Bathroom design experts say that bathroom vanities are the most common focal points in most bathroom renovation projects.
While many couples choose a dual-sink vanity for a master bath renovation, Arizona-based designer Lori Carroll recently told DIYNetwork.com that many are opting instead for separate his and her vanities. This is sometimes achieved by installing two separate furniture-style vanities.
"One thing that we're looking at more and more is husbands asking for a little taller master bath vanity," Carroll told the website. "When he's 6'6" and she's 5'5" I could tweak his vanity all the way up to like 37 inches. That's much more convenient for a tall person than the traditional 34-35 inches."
The discrepancy in height can be addressed by installing a piece in between the two vanities, according to Carroll.
"I might create a makeup area or maybe a taller vanity with drawers and doors or a combo of the two," she told the website.
This trend highlights the fact that many people are focusing on creating spaces that work efficiently for the user, and ensures there is adequate storage space to keep toiletries and other items out of sight, yet easily accessible.
