We are designing a new master suite including a master bathroom. The sink which my fiancee is now using is much too low for his comfort. I want to build his new vanity so that he doesn’t have to crouch down to brush his teeth ! How much higher than a standard cabinet should it be?
My bathroom cabinet (and I suspect his current one also) is 31" in height. He is 6’-5", and the distance from the top of his hipbone to the floor is 4 feet (even). The distance from his bellybutton to the floor is 44". (Yes, we had lots of fun measuring! :D)
If I’m 5’-6", and find the 31" cabinet comfortable, should I just add 8 inches to his new one? Or, ergonomically, is it a linear relationship? (It’s 40" from my hip-bone to the floor ~ in other words, the 11" difference in our heights is 3" from hip to skull-top, and 8" from hip to floor.)
Thanks ya’ll !!!
