  • Bathroom Vanity Drawers and Plumbing Cutouts

    It is always our goal to have all of our frequently asked questions answered either on our site or via this blog. Recently though, one of our gals received a live chat from a client with a question that we realized we hadn’t addressed. The client was under the impression that the bathroom vanities that appear to have drawers do not actually have working drawers, since there needed to be room for plumbing to fit. This is actually a common misconception  While there are some faux drawers (those that appear directly under where sink basins exist,) many of the drawers on our vanities will actually be working drawers, but will just have cutouts inside of the drawers to allow space for the plumbing. Check out the picture below. The top drawer in front of the sink does not open. The second drawer features the cut out in the center.  True, this type of drawer will not allow for as much storage as a drawer without a cutout such as this, but for those that have fallen in love with a particular vanity, they’ll take what they can get!
