Generally, there are three kinds of vanity heights: standard height, comfort height and vessel sink height.

Standard vanity height is always disputed and there is no really regulatory "standard height height". The standard height of the vanity is usually determined by the average of the most common heights of the bath vanity.

Comfort height is trending in modern bathroom vanities. Comfort height vanities are usually taller than standard vanity height so as to reduce the pain of bending to wash up.

If you are using a vessel sink (the basin over the countertop entirely), consider making the vanity itself low, so the top edge of the sink is around 36 inches (910 mm) high.

The advantages of high vanities include more storage under the sink, more comfortable height for cleanliness and a modern look. Downsides are uncomfortable for short people, and especially in small bathrooms, including a look that may seem unbalanced.

At the end of the day, it all comes down to what makes you feel comfortable. Many people compromise and make the vanity high. If you have space for double sinks, you can have one high and one low to fit your families. Or if you have two bathrooms, you may have each counter at a different height.
