James Martin Vanity Collection

Choosing the perfect vanity involves more than finding a design you love

A vanity can add style and functionality to your bathroom.

Browsing through the James Martin Vanity collection, you have plenty of options to choose from.

However, before you fall in love with a particular style there are a few aspects to consider.

So, what do you need to consider before buying a vanity?

Here’s what you should know.

Size is Crucial

Most bathrooms are designed for functionality instead of comfort. Everything has its place from the tub and shower to the sink and toilet.

Fitting a vanity in can be challenging. A vanity can take up a lot of floor space, making a small bathroom feel even more cramped.

Larger bathrooms can experience the same issue but there’s a simple way of avoiding the problem.

Before you start shopping for a James Martin vanity grab your measuring tape.

Along with measuring the size of the bathroom, take a look at the visual dimensions.

Do you have a narrow bathroom or is it wide open?

You want to choose a vanity that fits in the space without being overwhelming or blocking access to other features.

For example, you don’t want the vanity to get in the way of the tub or toilet.

Find the Plumbing

Your vanity either comes with a built-in sink or has space to add one.

One thing you do not want to lose in your bathroom is the sink. Can you imagine washing your hands in the tub or shower every time you use the bathroom?

After measuring the bathroom’s size, find the plumbing connections. This will dictate where to place the vanity.

Don’t forget to remeasure the space. You want to ensure your James Martin vanity slips easily into the spot.

Another option is to move the plumbing to accommodate the vanity. However, it’s expensive and time-consuming. Most homeowners only consider moving the plumbing during a complete bathroom overhaul.

A reason for the popularity of a James Martin vanity is the number of available features.

Some vanities come with integrated outlets. Wiring the outlets to the home’s electrical system is also a breeze for any licensed electrician.

The additional outlets come in handy when you are trying to plug in multiple devices at once like a curling iron, blow dryer, electric toothbrush, and your husband’s razor.

Drawers and cabinets are other features to consider. After all, you can never have too much storage space.

What about drawer depth? Do you want the vanity to have deep or shallow drawers?

Vanities can also come with built-in organizers. For example, holders for cups or pockets to keep curling irons or blow dryers.

Towel racks are another option on some vanities. You can even spend a little extra and pick a vanity with charging stations and built-in sound systems. Wi-Fi connectivity is something else to consider as you look for a bathroom vanity.


You may not think about the vanity’s height until it’s installed. Suddenly you are standing on your tiptoes or bending uncomfortably over.

A good rule to follow is to choose a master bath vanity measuring around 36 inches in height. Vanities for guest baths are typically a couple of inches shorter, between 32 and 34 inches.

A child’s vanity typically measures around 30 inches tall. For smaller children, look for a vanity with a pull-out step. Once your child outgrows the step it can be easily replaced with a storage drawer.

With a little research and some measuring, you can find the perfect vanity for your bathroom. You can even find a vanity in a color you love.
