Bathroom sink vanities are wide and they are deep. And they have swinging doors, as do bathrooms themselves. Unless you are replacing an existing vanity with the exact same size piece, make absolutely sure that the width and depth still work in the space, especially as they relate to the swing of the main door, closet doors and the vanity doors and drawers. Take into consideration the moldings around doorways and the amount of space needed around the toilet. Taller and wider people need more space in all directions. Finally, pay close attention to the plumbing that services the vanity, especially if the size is changing, or you are adding a new sink. A few inches' difference in either direction will turn a standard DIY installation project into a call to a licensed plumber.
While this may seem a style choice, how your sink is installed can make a huge difference in how easy it is to keep the vanity clean. An undermount sink means that you can easily wipe down the counter surface with little impediment. Drop-in sinks require a little more work to keep them clean around their edges. Price may play a factor in this decision, as undermount sinks are usually more expensive.
Most cast iron sinks are basically damage-proof, and they are a great high-end option for the kitchen. However, they are heavy and difficult to install, and their industrial look may clash with your bathroom.
Since vessel sinks are top-mounted, you’ll have to adjust your counter height to accommodate for the vessel’s depth. Since standard sink rim height is 34″ high, subtract your vessel’s depth from 34″ to figure out the ideal countertop height. You might try retrofitting a vessel sink to an existing console or dresser under 30” high to achieve an ergonomic sink height.
