Standard depth of a modern bathroom vanity is 21″. This measurement is taken from the front of the cabinet to the rear of the cabinet and does not include any overhang of the countertop. This addresses the question regarding standard depth of a vanity minus the countertop. Standard measurement does not include the countertop so there is no need to subtract the countertop overhang. Bath vanities typically range between 20″-23″ with shallow depth vanities also available for narrow bathroom layouts. It should be noted that while 21 inches is a rough average and considered standard by many, you should verify the exact measurements with your contractor and the company you purchase your vanity from as the definition of “standard depth” can vary based on region and manufacturer. In our experience, with nearly two decades in the industry, we can comfortably say 21″ is as close to standard as you will find.
Although the Standard Height of a Bathroom Vanity can vary, there is generally a higher consensus on the standard depth of a bathroom vanity. According to the National Kitchen & Bath Association, “The standard depth is 21” to the front of the box plus the thickness of doors and drawers. Some vanity cabinets used in small baths will be as little as 18” or 16”.” Always confirm that the vanity you choose is deep or shallow enough to work for your bathroom.

Tips for Deciding on the Depth of Your Vanity
Say for example you have a vanity with 21″ depth and a 22″ countertop. Your depth would be 21″ with a 1″ overhang. Installing a slim vanity can increase open floor space and make small bathrooms look bigger. You can find narrow bathroom vanities with depth dimensions as low as 8 inches.
