For those who want maximum space, a 72 inch vanity could be a perfect size. This width offers plenty of counter space, room for two sinks, and most importantly, fewer arguments about whose turn it is at the sink. Fortunately, bigger vanities are in and there are so many different styles available to choose from that you’ll have no trouble finding your perfect fit. First, though, let’s talk about how to choose the right size and other planning factors.
Choosing a Size: Where to Start
When you are measuring your vanity size or the space that you have to put it in, you might feel a bit overwhelmed at the thought of trying to decide. Fortunately, you’ll be happy to know that bathroom vanities tend to come in standard widths and depths, so you just have to narrow it down from your options. 72 inch vanities are among the largest, with a few people going up to 84 inches or larger when they have the space.
You’ll want to think about how much space you have to work with. Consider how each size of vanity (48, 60, 72 inches, etc.) will look in the space. If you want two sinks, you’ll probably want to stay above 60 inches. 48 inches is doable, but it’ll be tight. More on that next, though.

One Sink or Two?
Choosing the sinks is usually a simple enough task for most. A lot of people are upgrading for the sheer fact that they want a second sink. They’re trying to figure out how much space they can afford and how much they’re going to have to use here—that’s where vanity sizing comes into play.
Of course, you can find vanities that are 60 and 72 inches in width that only have a single sink. They’re less common, but they definitely maximize counter space when you’ve got the room to spare. Take the time to browse the selection available and see what styles you like best. You might realize that adding a sink is a great choice, or that going with one will work better than you anticipated.
Now that you’ve got a little insight to help you start your own search, let’s take a look at the trending 72 inch vanities on the market today so that you can find the perfect fit for your space.
