When we say “shallow depth bathroom vanities”, what do we exactly mean?
Bathroom vanities come in a number of different sizes and “size” is one of the most important factors when purchasing a new vanity. Even if people usually pay close attention to just width, the depth is also as important. Taking measurements just from left to right is a common mistake. One would always need to confirm that the vanity they choose is deep enough to work for your bathroom. When we say narrow, we’re referring to the depth of the vanity; that is the distance from the front to back.
What is the Standart Depth of A Bathroom Vanity?
According to the National Kitchen & Bath Association, the standard depth of a modern vanity, from front to back, is typically 21 inches. This measurement is based on the countertop’s depth since all vanitys’ depth is usually one inch less than countertops’. However, narrow depth bathroom vanities are available that measure less than 21 inches and they are generally around 18 inches for smaller spaces. Using that standard number, anything with less depth than 21” would be something we consider a “shallow depth bathroom vanity”.
Shallow Depth Bathroom Vanities are Getting Popular
21 inches is the most common depth for bathroom vanities with nearly two decades in the industry. Shallow or narrow depth bathroom vanities aren’t the norm these days. As people continue to build larger homes, yet there continues to be a need for practical options for smaller existing spaces.
