Bathroom Vanity Cabinets should be a top priority for anyone considering a new or remodeled bathroom. They are the center piece that sets the tone and style of probably the most used and abused room in any home. Not only will you and your family use and view your bathroom so will guests in many cases. 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:
Many people don't know the difference between the bathroom vanities and the bedroom vanities. If you are among those who don't know the difference, then you may land up buying the bathroom vanity for the bedroom. The main difference between the bathroom vanities and the bedroom vanities is that that former has a sink. Then bedroom vanities have some kind of sitting arrangement such as a stool. On the other hand, the vanities usually don't have a sitting arrangement. Now the next question arises, what is the purpose of the vanity in the bedroom? Well, the bedroom vanities are items that can hold lots of important stuff. Most people would regard these as a dressing table or a small closet. However, there is a difference in style of the vanity that distinguish them from the other closets.

Size of the vanity is also critical. I've talked about height, but you also need to consider width as well. You have a certain amount of space available, and no more. So make sure that your vanity takes up the required space well. Don't buy one too short, or too long. Too short looks wrong and too long can be a real problem. I've seen people who've bought a vanity that is too long and put it beside the toilet so that it's difficult to sit on the toilet. Consider the shape of vanity you need. Should it go along a wall, for example, or do you need a corner unit? Sometimes either will work and you need to decide exactly your requirements. And don't forget that you also need to make sure that there is space for the doors to open properly. Many people have purchased vanities only to find that the door will only open half way before it contacts a wall, or a shower, for example.
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.
