Cost of Pre-made Vs. Custom Built Bathroom Vanities in Connecticut

By: Kevin Ahern
August 11th, 2022

The vanity is like the centerpiece of the bathroom. In many Connecticut homes, the vanity is also the biggest and most ornate piece of furniture in the bathroom. Positioned just beneath the mirror, the vanity is what most people see first when they enter. Deciding which vanity to buy, how much money to invest in the vanity, and whether to buy a pre-made vs. custom built bathroom vanity can be challenging. While your budget should play a role in your decision, there are other factors to consider as well. Quality, customization, appearance, and functionality are all important factors to consider when choosing a vanity.  Generally speaking, the more you spend, the higher the quality will be - and the more likely it is that your vanity will meet your needs for years to come. If you're planning a Connecticut bathroom remodel, it's important to understand the difference between pre-made and custom-built bathroom vanities, and how these differences impact cost.  Litchfield Builders has been working with homeowners to remodel their bathrooms and upgrade their home fixtures for over twenty years.
