Bathroom Corner Vanities: Things to Know

Lead Image

Bathroom corner vanities can be a great space-saving solution for a home with limited square footage. Here are several things to keep in mind when considering purchasing such a vanity.


A corner vanity is a great way to add storage space to a small bathroom. They are small and convenient, but it's important to remember that with a small vanity comes the problem of a small storage area. If you have many items you’d like to store, you should also consider adding shelves or storage cabinets to the wall.


Corner vanities are available in a wide range of styles and colors, but the choices won’t be as vast as with a traditional vanity. Showrooms usually have a handful of corner vanities on hand. You may have to rely on catalogs and online shopping to find the right vanity for your bathroom.


Most people enjoy having a mirror or medicine cabinet above their vanity. Corner vanities can present a challenge when trying to hang a mirror or cabinet. Hanging cabinets in corners can be difficult. You’ll need to find a unit made for a corner, and the choices may be limited. Hanging just a mirror may be an option, but it will be a challenge to find a mirror that works well.

If you have a small bathroom and are considering a corner vanity, make sure you shop around, ask lots of questions, and understand the dimensions you have to work with.
