Bathroom vanity cabinet construction. In these days of vanity cabinet manufacturing and all styles of home improvement products, sometimes the really cheap and discounted vanity cabinets are not always the best choice. So make sure you protect yourself from a poor vanity quality. By checking a few things this will allow you to find a good quality piece of bathroom furniture. You should first check the drawers and make sure they open smoothly and close smoothly. If they don`t and you can see they are held together with staples, nails and glue, this would indicate poor quality. Check the interiors to see that they are finished including rear surfaces. If there are shelves in the vanity unit make sure you can adjust them. Also a good sign of quality is that the shelves are 5/8" thick or more to prevent them from bowing. High quality fine wood vanity cabinets or strong plywood with solid wood doors will be protected from regular wear and tear of the moisture in the bathroom. On the other side particleboard or any laminate over particleboard will not be able to stand up to the moisture and can rapidly warp, peel or even cup. By choosing good quality wood and bath cabinet hardware you will have a beautiful vanity cabinet that will last a very long time in your bathrooms decor.
Your bathroom vanity counter tops choice will be one that also defines your style. Ceramic tile is a traditional favorite in the bathroom but unlike in the past you have a wealth of other choices available. Another old favorite is laminate which offers a kaleidoscope of colors. Man made or solid surface materials are very durable this synthetic made of acrylic or polyester is easily maintained. It comes in varied colors and textures. A natural stone such as granite, marble, and slate can add durable elegance but will probably be the most expensive choice for your bathroom counter top.
Think of your current bathroom`s layout and the things that you don`t have that you would really like to have. This is where choosing bathroom vanity cabinet doors, drawers and storage needs to take place. For example many people would like extra storage in their bathroom so you can add a drawer base or perhaps you need more storage for linens, you can have a linen cabinet added. You will find a that your storage needs can be met by the large selection of bathroom vanity cabinet doors, drawers or a combination of both to meet your storage requirements.
Third, hardware selection. Bathroom is a rather wet space, you also need to pay attention to the metal part of the vanity and to choose stainless steel or aluminum is always advisable. Meanwhile, the coating for the hardware should also not be overlooked. The thickness for general chrome finish hardware is 20 microns. But the metal behind it will be oxidized as time goes. Therefore it`s better to choose hardware with 28-thick coating.
First, material is the most important thing to be taken into account. As we all know that, the surfacing for vanity cabinet are composed of following items: natural stone, engineered stone, fire-proof plate, painting, glass, metal, solid wood...etc. The base material is the main body of vanity cabinet while it`s always covered up by surfacing. Currently, the main base material for manufacturing vanity cabinets in the market are fire-proof MDF which is made by selected wood particles adopting special production technique and it`s regarded as "Solid" board. This fire-proof MDF has better water resistance ability than common MDF so it`s regarded as First Choice material for high-end vanity cabinet.
