How much space should be open below a floating vanity?

12 years ago

We will have a 6 foot vanity between 2 walls. I plan for the counter to be at 36" because we are tall and want to maximize storage. I had planned on a 2 cm (3/4") counter, 30" high cabinet (all drawers), with a toe kick area just over 5" tall. I am thinking about doing away with the toe kick to create a floating vanity, but is 5" between the bottom of the cabinet and the floor enough? I want the proportion to look right and to be able to get my steam mop under the cabinet, but I do not want to lose too much storage, so having 10" + open below the cabinet is not an option. If 5" is not enough, then what about 7" or 8"?
