HOW TO BUY AN ONLINE VANITY




Since I did my post about Boulder many of you have emailed me about the vanities.  We ordered them all online because of time restraints and the experience was pretty good.

I know many people who are remodeling might not have a trim/carpenter who can build a quality vanity in a short timeline.  And.....if you can find someone they lead time can be 8-12 weeks!

I did a lot of research looking online for what we needed and there are a lot of factors to keep in mind.

1. Countertop....do they offer choices?
2. Sink....Undermount [my personal favorite] or vessel
3. Comes with countertop or faucet? Also make sure to check whether it has wholes for a 4" or 8" spread faucet.
4. Height?
5. Depth?
6. Width?

I am posting a few of my favorites that I discovered during my research.....






You can see that some of these come with faucets....you can always change them out to something you like better....or many times there is an option to purchase without!






Other things to remember is that they could be painted and knobs can be changed!




Here are a few from All Modern




And Wayfair....






The good thing about RH is they come in many finishes and options!






Other online places to look:
Lowes
Signature Hardware
Overstock
Pottery Barn
Amazon
Ikea

Whew are you overwhelmed ?  

Many price points here so it might not be the cheapest way to go either!  Also....you have to take into consideration the width of the space. 
Just because you have 60"....a 60" vanity might not fit because of trim and your walls might not be level.  

So I am still icing....stretching...wearing soft sole shoes [sketchers] while all of my cute summer sandals are in the closet getting dusty.  I am determined to heal this and NOT get a cortisone shot as everyone has said it hurts like the dickens.....but I am slowly sinking into a dark hole of frustration:(

On a bright note these curtains are being installed at my project today.....


So excited!

The shot only hurts for a moment. I recommend trying it. Good luck. Love your work by the way.

love this post and your picks. highly recommend the shot. my podiatrist numbed my heel a little beforehand. it felt like a bee sting. not good but not horrible. relief was almost instant. if you dont want to do the shot then get a walking boot. mine was like this...

not the sexiest thing you'll ever wear but worth every herman munster joke you'll hear.

Sherry, please do not wear Sketchers! They are too flat and not enough support. Buy yourself a pair of FitFlops. It took a while, but the support from wearing FitFlops really helped me heal. Read the reviews. You will see I'm not the only one! I want you to whip this :)

Sherry I just had a cortisone shot three weeks ago. I had been struggling with a messed up ankle. The shot is a gamechanger!! I went to Ortho atlanta in Johns Creek. I LOVE everything you touch.

Time to go shopping. Abbadabbas can help. It's not just about soft but also supportive.

Can I recommend Vionic? They have some relatively attractive sandals, but they are podiatrist-designed for plantar fasciitis. I wear them exclusively now, in flip flops, sandals, slippers, shoes, and boots. I love them!

I agree...no sketchers!
Try Mephisto for everyday. $$ but worth it.
I wear Fitflops in the house instead of being barefoot. Really helps!
