1. What Is a Cloakroom Vanity Unit?
A cloakroom is essentially a smaller version of a bathroom. The compact dimension of a cloakroom means there’s space only for a washbasin and toilet.
A cloakroom vanity unit is the perfect combination of a washbasin and storage. Since cloakrooms are small spaces, these units are typically compact and slim.
2. What Sizes Are Cloakroom Vanity Units?
Cloakroom vanity units are available over a vast range of dimensions.
The standard width of a cloakroom vanity unit is between 450mm (17.7 inches) and 600mm (23.6 inches). However, the width can range between a truly tiny 325mm (12.8 inches) and a generously large 1200mm (47.24 inches).
The width of a bespoke fitted furniture suite can go up to 1900mm (75 inches).
Likewise, the standard height of these units is 800mm (32 inches). However, the height can range between 760mm (30 inches) and 910mm (36 inches). The height of wall-hung cloakroom vanity units can be even lower or higher.
3. Does a Cloakroom Vanity Unit Offer Storage Options?
A cloakroom vanity unit not only adds style to your space but also offers generous storage space.
Storage options include a single shelf, two shelves, a single drawer, or two drawers. A fitted furniture suite will offer more storage options.
While a vanity unit with a deep washbasin will offer less storage space, a unit with a countertop washbowl will offer comparatively more storage space.
Also, a floor-standing cloakroom vanity unit will have more storage space compared to a wall-hung unit.
4. What Are the Benefits of Having a Cloakroom Vanity Unit?
Convenience is the biggest advantage of this dual-functional – washbasin and storage – unit.
The built-in washbasin saves you the trouble of having to purchase a separate washbasin and storage unit.
The washbasin provides a functional space for completing grooming tasks, such as applying makeup, shaving, and brushing teeth. The storage area beneath the washbasin helps you keep the bathroom essentials within easy reach.
