WOOD TYPE

What kind of wood is used for bathroom vanity?

Bathroom cabinets and vanities are typically made from these materials: Plywood, medium-density fiberboard (MDF) or solid wood. 

What is MDF Wood?

MDF (medium density fiberboard) is an engineered wood made from composite wood pieces and fibers, which are held together with either a wax or resin adhesive. A thin decorative veneer layer is then stretched around the composite plank of wood. 

MDF is one of the most economical materials in cabinet construction, it can be used in the bathroom vanity cabinets. It’s hard to determine the quality of the MDF; if it’s well made it will be durable even in humid bathroom conditions.

Solid Wood Bathroom Vanities

“Solid wood” is a term for two different styles of wood: Standard solid wood (all natural real wood), and solid hardwood plywood. 

Solid hardwood plywood is the most durable wood material for bathroom vanity cabinets. It is made from woods like oak, cherry, and maple. 

Natural solid wood(all natural real wood) tend to shrink and expand as humidity changes, which can cause cracks in the painted or veneered finish of your cabinets, and in some cases, this may lead to warping. Natural solid wood must be dried properly. 

Solid Wood Vs Solid Hardwood

Solid hardwood is a totally different material from natural wood. It is a manufactured wood that uses pure fine wood from a single natural wood source, which allows the wood to bend and expand in different humid conditions, but will always goes back to its original shape. That’s why no cracking or warping occurs.

IMPORTANT TIP:  Regardless of which material your vanity is made with, be sure you have a proper bathroom exhaust fan to remove moisture from the bathroom.

How to Make Your Traditional Bathroom Vanities Stand Out

Traditional bathroom vanities are exquisite, luxurious and quite easy to make them stand out. You only need to choose your backsplash wisely, which in this case should be a color contrasting with the vanity. A lot of people play it safe around porcelain or ceramic tiles, but you can also achieve a really elegant look with Carrara marble tiles.

Carrara marble is pure natural stone which can either be honed or polished to give the surface a different texture. It also comes in different color tones to create a wide variety of themes. The trick here is selecting a color for the Carrara tile that is going to juxtapose the vanity hence make it the centerpiece attraction when anyone walks into your bathroom.

Here is another useful tip; how you arrange the tiles will also help bring out the traditional bathroom vanities. The normal tile-on-tile layering isn’t a bad idea though you it’s a bit limiting. Why not venture into something completely different like a subway honed look, a Basketweave design or even a hexagon mosaic tile look. What this does is create unique patterns on the wall or backsplash, creating leading lines that draw the eye to the vanity set.

traditional bathroom vanities

About color, you need a little bit of expertise balancing the vanity and marble hues to come up with an exquisite look. Cream, grey or white Carrara marble tiles seamlessly blend with dark or light colored traditional bathroom vanities; a white, dark brown or rosewood vanity set would pair perfectly. Carrara marble tiles can also come in different hues like Emperador café, Saint Laurent polished or Cappuccino beige, Nero Marble or Silver Fantasy.

Consider Your Room Size

How big is your bathroom? Do you know its exact dimensions especially the area where the vanity will be placed? The importance of this information is to guide you in buying bathroom vanity cabinets of the right size. You don’t want something too large in a small room or a tiny vanity that is almost inconspicuous against other fixtures in the bathroom.

Choosing Color

From the vanity itself to the fixtures, the color you pick should blend in seamlessly with your bathroom. Observe your shower area and see the different colors used on it; this should help you in deciding the right color for your vanity. You can even repaint your bathroom just so it fits a vanity piece you have been meaning to install.

Be Precise

There are vanity sets that don’t come with cabinets which means you need to buy them separately as standalones. Be exact on the color and dimensions of your existing vanity so you can get cabinets that match it. Symmetry is important; call in a plumber or carpenter to help take measurements with you and also take pictures of your existing vanity. All this information will help consultants at bathroom vanities in our showroom to choose the right product for you.

Vanity Lights

Are you going to use vanity lights to illuminate the countertop only or the entire bathroom as well? This will speak to the kind of wattage you consider for your lights as well as the angle at which you will fix the lights. Bathroom vanity cabinets aren’t sold with lights so do your prior homework on the kind of lights you want before going out to purchase the entire unit.

How Much Storage Do You Want?

This is where you decide how many shelves you want on your vanity cabinet. There are models with two, four and even eight cabinet spaces for storage. There are vanities cabinets divided into compartments or those that have one huge space running from countertop to the base. Moreover, there are also vanities with additional racks installed at the bottom. How much storage space you are looking for determines what you will get.

Thirdly, decide how much you want to purchase the faucets for. A little ‘window-shopping’ through different website will give you a rough estimate on what a faucet should cost. Then find out if you will be required to pay for shipping, as this will also add up to the cost. it will also pay if you could get some discounts on the items you are about to buy; even if it’s not advertised on the website, try and ask for a discount on the items you are about to buy.

Another tip about purchase is ensuring you are getting the item from a website that accepts returns or refunds. This helps when the item shipped to your doorstep is not what you were looking for. Additionally, find out if the shipment is fully insured by the site itself as this gives some guarantee your item will arrive in good condition.

For those bathroom faucets that need extra fixtures, make sure you buy them in advance and have them shipped together. If they can be found locally, that’s better. Don’t buy a faucet that can not be easily installed by simple plumbing or whose accessories are not in any local hardware store.

If the faucet is not included in bathroom vanity set price, you can always check bathroom faucets category of the website. Just use the above tips to help make the right decision.
