How to fill a 61" bathroom space with a vanity?


Is it normal practice to custom order a vanity to fit, if you want it to run from wall to wall in a bathroom (mine is 61"). Or is there another way it is usually done?

Thanks

Perhaps I should look at it the same as installing kitchen cabinets?

Lot of options.
You can find one close and build out the wall.
Buy cabinets and add filler strips on the ends and use a soild top custom cut to fit.
To name a few.

We just did 2 bathroom renos with 60" cabinets. They were full height custom cabinets (Just like a kitchen). You could get standard cabinets to fill 60 inches and add a 1/2 filler on both sides.

How to fill a 61" bathroom space with a vanity?


I recently did a bath vanity which was very close to 40". I made a cabinet, then put a tile top on it. I used 36" of 3" tile, then two 2" strips of glass accent tile to get me to the 40".

You can feel free to make the cabinet a bit small, maybe 1/4", and make the facing the exact size, then take a 1/16th at a time off it to get it in tight.

I used urethane grout and I grouted against the tiled wall, but you can use sanded caulk if you prefer.

If its a high-end remodel all our cabinets are custom built. If its a lower cost job we use stock size pre-made units with fillers.
