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.
