Bathroom vanities are available in a range of sizes and designs, depending on your needs, family members and lifestyle. The size and shape of the bathroom you are designing or renovating also influences the vanity measurements when choosing a vanity unit.
When choosing any piece for your bathroom, and especially when choosing your bathroom vanity, measuring your space is key. It is extremely important to ensure you have the dimensions of your room correct from the beginning to ensure you select a vanity that will fit nicely in your space. Remember to always use a licenced plumber or building when measuring your bathroom space. Like any room in the house, you will always want to maximise the available space you have rather than lessen it.

Things to consider when measuring for your vanity include:
- The depth, width and height of the vanity
- Door openings into the space and taking note of any
- Electrical outlets and fittings already in place on walls and ceilings
- If you are looking to mount your vanity on the wall, you will need to ensure the wall is fit to hold the weight of the vanity unit
