Something to think about - how many sinks will your family need for this bathroom. Since one of the functions of the vanity cabinet is hiding the plumbing underneath the sink(s), this question will help to determine the size the cabinet will need to be.

Another important question to think about is whether the sink(s) will be inset into the cabinet top or mounted on top of the cabinet. In some modern decors, the sink(s) are placed into the top of the cabinet and the rest of the space is used at counter tops for holding items such as makeup, toothbrushes, etc.

It is also important to consider what the counter top and sink(s) will be made of. This can have an effect on the relative strength to which the cabinet will need to be constructed in order to support the weight. It can could even have an effect on your choice of woods for the construction as you will want some contrast in the colors between the counter top and the trim and finish of the cabinet as a whole.

The next consideration is how ornate you want the cabinet doors to be. Bathroom vanity cabinets can be very plain and unassuming or very elaborate. Your choice will depend a lot on the particular style of decor you choose for your bathroom. The style of the bathroom vanity cabinet can set the tone for a warm, old warm charm or a cooler modern decor.

The final option to consider is how the cabinet will be used. Many people prefer to make use of the space below the counter top as storage for linens, towels and washcloths, or cleaning supplies. The design of the storage space is important if one is considering using it for storing linens. A leak developing below the sinks can soak the contents of the cabinet before you realize it is there if the cabinet is not properly sealed to protect the storage area.

There are several factors that one must consider before making a final decision. Choosing the right bathroom vanity cabinet may seem minor, but it can have in impact on the entire appearance of the bathroom.
