What Are The Pros And Cons Of A Double Sink Vanity?

Pros and Cons of a Double Sink Vanity

Did you know that the majority of people take anywhere between 11 and 30 minutes to get ready in the morning? If you and your significant other live together, the combination of you both getting ready at the same time could be a recipe for disaster. The double sink vanity has become a popular bathroom appliance for some while for others it may be an unnecessary waste of space. Here we will go over the pros and cons hopefully find yourself answering the question of if a double sink vanity is the right purchase for you. 

Pros of using a double sink

There is no better feeling that having a clean and tidy bathroom. You wake up, shower, then get ready in a clean and comforting environment. When you end up having multiple people use the same sink area, it can get messy and ugly quick as your stuff begins to get mixed up. The double sink vanity is the perfect fix for this as it allows for each person to have their own counter and mirror space for getting ready. Most double sink vanities even come with their own drawer units so you will know where your personal items are at all times. 

Another advantage is the ability to get creative with your bathroom design. The separated double sink vanity offers the ability to creatively place each vanity in a different spot if you have space constraints. The average bathroom vanity width is between 20-25 inches so two separated units offers a more compact area than let’s say a 72-inch long vanity. The one backlash to a separated double vanity is the limited amount of counter space but if you are the type of person that likes a clean, tidy bathroom, that can easily be solved by adding in extra storage cabinets. This bathroom decor option can also add to the ambience of your bathroom, potentially increasing the value if done correctly.

Cons of using a double sink

Bathrooms come in all different shapes and sizes. Obviously, not every bathroom is meant for a double vanity so the most important thing to do when considering it is measured out the available space. Are the two of you going to be cluttered in a tight space even with the second sink unit? Furthermore, if you’re the type of person who likes to lay all of your stuff out in the bathroom then this may not be the best option. A second sink, even if not separated, will take up valuable space with that could be used for decor or simply open space to give the bathroom a more open look. 

Even if you’ve done all the research and know that a double vanity sink is perfect for your home, you still have to factor in the cost. Not only do you have to take into consideration the cost of constructing two new sinks and vanities, but also the plumbing. Paying for the plumbing of two sinks could cost you a considerable amount more than one.
