Bathroom Sink Height

Bathroom Sink Height

Vanities come in a variety of height arrangements including standard height, comfort height, and vessel sink height. Standard vanity height is often contested and there’s not really a regulated “standard height.” The standard height of a bathroom vanity is determined by averages of the most common heights of bath vanities.

Bathroom Sink Height

Generally speaking, a bathroom vanity will be lowered in order to accommodate for the extra height added by a vessel sink. Vessel sinks typically add 5-6″ to the height of the vanity countertop. For example, if you want the rim of your vessel sink to be at comfort height, you will need a vessel sink vanity that is 36″-6″=30″ in height.

Since vessel sinks are top-mounted, you’ll have to adjust your counter height to accommodate for the vessel’s depth. Since standard sink rim height is 34″ high, subtract your vessel’s depth from 34″ to figure out the ideal countertop height. You might try retrofitting a vessel sink to an existing console or dresser under 30” high to achieve an ergonomic sink height.

Not every bathroom sink faucet will be compatible with every bathroom sink. Bathroom applications generally have 1 or 3 holes located in the rim or deck of the sink, the countertop or the wall above the sink. After determining where your faucet will be mounted, measure the distance between the center of the far left hole to the center of the far right hole.

The goal of ADA is to provide equal access to bathrooms for the disabled. The ADA has the following categories for knee clearance and sink top height: 1) Kindergarten, 2) Elementary and 3) Adult. At the Kindergarten level, knee clearance should be 19 inches minimum and sink top should be 24 inches maximum. At the Elementary level, knee clearance should be 24 inches minimum and sink top should be 29 inches maximum. At the Adult level, knee clearance should be 29 inches minimum and sink top should be 34 inches maximum.

Then reinstall the valves or solder caps on the ends of the water lines to get the water back on to the house. With a clear view of the wall and plumbing, draw a center line through the middle of the waste line and mark the sink rim height on the wall. Use your sink’s instructions to determine the ideal position for the pipes. Then decide which pipes, if any, need to be moved. For the best appearance, we recommend that you center the drain on the sink and shift the supply tubes fairly close to the sink.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo PRO Carol Johnson Always go lower than 34″ when using a vessel sink. Cabinets should be ordered according to the sink height. The top of sink should not be more than 36″, unless you are very tall! 3 Likes Bookmark May 16, 2014 at 6:25PM

Antonio Martins Interior Design MirrorsLikewise, the height of mirrors should be based on your own height. Find an average eyeline for everyone using the mirrors and make sure this height is well within the upper and lower borders of the mirror (5 ft., 6 in. is average, but your household may vary).

The ADA Bathroom Sink Height Requirements include a depth maximum of 6.5 inches. The knee clearance should also have a width of 30 inches and depth of 19 inches. The disabled man should be able to position his wheelchair in front of the sink. ADA even suggests that the faucet handles should be push, lever, touch or motion sensor.

When you order the sink, you’ll need to specify the faucet hole arrangement. Choices will include one hole for a single lever, or 4- or 8-in. centered holes for separate hot and cold valves. It’s wise to decide on a faucet style first, then pick and order your sink with the faucet holes that suit the faucet you select. The sink we feature here is a Ravenna Semi-Pedestal Sink made by American Standard.

For instance, a clear glass sink will show watermarks or dirt, so you’ll want to wipe clean frequently. A copper sink’s living finish will develop natural patina and is therefore less fussy, so that may be a better choice in a frequently used master or main bath. Whatever material you choose, make sure the sink base doesn’t have tight angles; you’ll want a base that’s easy to clean around. As with most fixtures, use non-abrasive cleaners to keep your sink in top form.

@James, reno226 asked that question 22 months ago. Further, there are no codes for vanity height in the IRC (US) except that the Americans with Disabilities Act standards for vanity heights with built-in sinks cites 29 inches for the minimum and 34 inches for the maximum height of the sink and cabinet. However that doesn’t usually apply to single family residential units.

Toilet Paper HoldersWhen placing the paper holder, the tendency can be to picture the roll as hanging lower than it really should. Standard height is about 26 in. off the floor, which is closer to the height of the top of the tank than to the seat, so I recommend placing it on this level for a clean line, like I’ve done in this bathroom. Attaching it to the side of the vanity (toward the front rather than centered, for reachability) is another option for tighter spaces.See the absolute right way to hang toilet paper

Replacing a vanity with a wall-hung sink is one of the best ways to make a small bathroom feel roomier. As the floor space opens up, the room becomes brighter and easier to clean. In this story, we’ll show you how to install a stylish wall-hung bathroom sink and faucet, including the tough part: moving the water supply and drainpipes. We’ll also show you how to open the wall, cut the pipes and reroute them for easy hook-up.

Bathroom sink faucets are an essential piece of any bathroom but that doesn’t mean they can’t also be a stylish accent to enhance your bathroom. Faucets come in a multitude of styles, designs and finishes with a wide variety of features such as anti-scald protection, touch less operation and more. All of these things as well as ease of use, safety, durability and faucet set size should be taken into consideration before you make your purchase.

Your sink may call for specific locations, but if not, plan on centering them under the sink, spacing them 8 in. apart and between 21 and 23 in. above the floor. Anchor support bracket(s) at the height you choose, then cut the tubing lengths with a tubing cutter and dry-fit all the parts together to make sure of the final locations.

Robeson Design An above-counter vessel sink will naturally sit much higher than an inset below-counter sink, and so a vessel should be placed on a lowered cabinet to compensate. Ultimately, you should try a few different sinks (in store or in bathrooms you like) and figure out the height that feels most comfortable for you.
