The Pros and Cons of a Double Sink Vanity

Ah, the joys of remodeling a bathroom! From the fixtures to the paint, there are a variety of exciting ways to make your commode unique to your home. One of the most important features to pick out is your sink. In addition to a regular pedestal sink, there are also vanity sinks — and one of them happens to be a double sink vanity. If you’re looking into one of these double wonders, then here are some pros and cons to consider:

Pros:

Two for the Price of One

When it comes to sinks in your home, the most valued (and important) basin is located in your bathroom. With that being said, you know the struggle well: everyone in your home needs to use the bathroom sink at the same exact time. Simple solution? Having a double sink vanity installed! Not only will this allow two people to use the bathroom sink (and mirror) at the same time — but it will be a great investment piece in your home, too!

Creates More Counter Space

Installing any vanity-based sink in your bathroom will add much needed counter space in your commode. When you install a double sink vanity, it will, in fact, double (sometimes even triple) the amount of counter space you have in the bathroom — which will be perfect for those that like to lay out their grooming essentials in front of them!

Cons:

Won’t fit in all Bathrooms

Believe it or not, most bathrooms aren’t large enough to accommodate a double sink vanity (even if you really want one). In fact, some bathrooms have to be built around the amenity just for it to fit. Additionally, a double vanity sink will take up a lot of room — no matter what size it is.

Takes Extra Time to Clean

Think about it: how long does it take for you to clean a single bathroom sink? Instead of cleaning one sink and a small counter space, you’ll now be responsible for cleaning two sinks and a very large surface area. This will not only increase the amount of time you clean your bathroom, but it will also be quite the task for those who are always on the go!
