Need design advice for bathroom vanity/makeup area
March 16, 2013 in Design Dilemma
This is a total bathroom gut and remodel. We will have his and her vanity areas; her's is the problem. There is a 78" run -- 30" for a makeup area at about 30"31" height and a 48" vanity area. I had always thought I would do an above counter sink but I'm second quessing this choice now that I'm looking at sinks and have been told that vessel sinks aren't selling. We are concerned about resale since we will probably be in this house less than 10 more years. So, it looks like I can do a countertop that is about 30/31" in height all the way across with a 4-6" high vessel type sink OR I can do a undermount sink which would make the makeup area a drop down of 4"-6". Which one looks better from a design standpoint? I'm also planning a vanity with all drawers/no cabinet so an undermount will eat into this space more than an above counter sink. Thanks for any input.
