The 48″ vanity is one of the most common sizes so I decided to make this list to help some of you with some of my top picks. Also, stick around for my Smart Shoppers Tip.

What I like most about the Celine vanity is its rounded basin that protrudes slightly from the rest of the cabinet. It’s a one piece bsin with 2 faucets. It’s almost like a trough sink but the sinks are separated in the middle. This was done to keep with the modern fashion of this vanity. It has plenty of storage space with chrome feet that raise the cabinets off the ground to allow a positive flow of air amid humid bathroom conditions.

It’s handcrafted from a rare Mindo Wood that naturally resists fungi and decay.  That means that the Aquarius not only looks great, it won’t be affected by moisture after you take long steam showers.  A true work of art, every detail is handcrafted all the way down to the textured driftwood finish.

Secondly, it has open space shelving right in the middle. The gives an open and inviting sense as your vanity waits on your every need.
