Master Ensuite Renovation: Functionality over Vanity

During one of our latest whole house re-build projects, we tackled a master ensuite renovation. The owners opted for a vanity with one sink rather than trying to squeeze two sinks into a tight space. Making this decision allowed for a larger walk-in shower and more spacious feeling overall.

While many homeowners feel compelled to have two sinks in a master ensuite, we believe that a more spacious layout is a preferable option if there is not adequate space. As a general rule, a vanity should be at least six feet in length if it is going to comfortably fit two sinks.

The floating vanity sits off the floor allowing the tile to continue; this creates a larger sense of space. The vanity has three drawers that pull out to provide a favourable amount of storage. There is a corner cabinet as well with open shelving that can be used for more toiletries.

The caesarstone countertop paired with an undermount sink is simple and practical. The sink faucets, cabinetry hardware and hand towel bar mounted to the side of the cabinet are all satin nickel finish.

Overall Lesson: Remember that when it comes down to it, we recommend you opt for a more spacious layout rather than trying to squeeze every last piece you desire into a room.
