If you have ever used a wheelchair, or would like to have the option for seating at your sink or vanity, you’re going to need space under the sink so that you can roll up and still complete tasks like brushing your teeth and washing your hands with ease. This means that the sink counter and clearance space underneath must be at a specific height. Luckily, there’s a simple solution to this kind of accessibility issue: Floating vanities.
Floating vanities are especially convenient when it comes to creating an accessible bathroom because they often don’t have storage underneath, allowing them to be set a little bit lower than conventional sinks. You’ll have the ability to add storage on the sides of the sink, making it easier to customize and easier to reach. Check out our top 8 picks for accessible floating vanities.
