The great thing about bathroom vanity cabinets is there are so many different types and styles that you can definitely find one to fit your design ideas. With this said here are a few choices you must consider besides just the cabinetry for your vanity. One of your first considerations will be the size of your bathroom. This will directly determine some of your vanity cabinet choices. If your bathroom is small a double sink bathroom vanity cabinet or long one, though useful, may not be able to fit.
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.
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.
Vanities are of different materials basically, like wood, aluminum, granite, marble, acrylic, etc and you can choose from among a whole lot of colors and styles according to your budget and general décor of the room. Counter tops too come in a great range of materials with laminate topping the list due to its versatility. Granite and ceramic tiles are great choices when it comes to Vanity Cabinet counter tops mainly due to its durability and ease in maintenance.
