Bathroom Vanity buying info A bathroom vanity serves as the room’s centerpiece, so it is necessary to give your purchase careful attention. Do you desire a wood vanity? Would a single vanity or a double vanity look better in your bathroom? What type of bathroom vanity will match the rest of the bathroom’s décor? These are only a few questions that need consideration. Bathroom vanities are the first thing people see when entering your bathroom. You want it to look beautiful yet serve its practical purpose by providing storage space for makeup, hair accessories, and other toiletries. Having enough storage will keep your bathroom clutter free and looking presentable. Bathroom Vanity styles A euro style bathroom vanity can provide an old world feel. Associated sinks can be hand painted for that extra touch and sense of detail. Single vanities provide room for one sink. This is good for apartments and half bathrooms where space is limited and needs are smaller. If additional storage space is needed, you can use a basket for towels and small shelf for minor toiletry items. Double vanities are available for those seeking a piece for their master bedroom or a shared kids’ bathroom. The double vanity affords space for two sinks. In addition, there are just as many styles to choose from for a double as there are for single vanities. If you have the room, it is recommended to purchase a double vanity for the sake of convenience. Bathroom vanities are made from a wide range of materials, so be sure to select a mixture that is pleasing to you, practical, and associated to your preferred style. Some materials include porcelain, stone, marble, and glass. In addition, many have metals such as copper and steel enhancing the look and adding to the structure.

MDF wins in terms of cost hands down. MDF bathroom cabinets can be ideal if you’re remodeling the bathroom on a budget. Solid wood or solid hardwood vanities cost more but are usually stronger and available in more details designs such as hand carvings seen in antique, country, and transitional bathroom cabinets. Of course, as with many things, you get what you pay for, and we would not recommend MDF cabinets if you intend to install a vanity that will last a long time. If you have the budget for it, we suggest opting for a solid hardwood vanity.

If you’re thinking of starting a bathroom remodeling project, sooner or later you’re going to need to decide between MDF or solid hardwood cabinets in the bathroom. MDF has earned a pretty bad reputation for itself by many woodworkers and furniture purists over time. You may be surprised to find out that MDF is actually not a terrible material for bathroom vanities, though solid hardwood and birch veneers are a superior option. I’ll explain below.

MDF is one of the most economical materials in cabinet construction, and that’s its true benefit. In the past, its durability came into question especially when placed in humid bathroom conditions. But when finished properly, MDF can be used in the bathroom with few if any problems. That’s the rub, though: MDF is a comparatively inconsistent material, due to variance in the fiber sizes and qualities of the many different woods used to make the material, and so it’s hard to determine how “well finished” an individual board may be.

MDF cabinets don’t expand and contract as much as real wood, but they can be damaged by moisture if water is allowed to penetrate the surface of MDF. This would result in some serious swelling in your vanity. With proper ventilation and perfect sealing of the material, MDF can be used in the bathroom without any problem. As an added precaution, you can seal the backs and edges around MDF cabinets with oil-based sealer and a few coats of poly sealer. This should prevent warping and shrinking, and is a recommended step to take if you buy an MDF vanity.

MDF is commonly found in cheaper vanity cabinets, and although it is usually fine, it’s not the best choice for your bathroom. It’s best to keep your MDF cabinets in the kitchen and other drier environments.

“Solid wood” is a blanket term that encompasses two very different styles of wood: there is standard solid wood (all natural real wood), and “solid hardwood.” Solid hardwood is perhaps the most durable and sturdy wood material for bathroom cabinets, and is made from woods like oak, cherry, and maple. Planks of natural solid wood (“real wood” like you’d find in the lumber section of a hardware store) tend to shrink and expand as humidity changes, which can cause cracks in the painted or veneered finish of your cabinets, and in extreme cases, this morphing may lead to warping. So “natural solid wood” is best left in drier environments, as with MDF.

“Solid hardwood” is a totally different material from natural wood. It is a sort of manufactured wood that uses pure fine wood pulp from a single oak or maple source, which allows the wood to bend and expand with humidity fluctuations, but will always revert to its original shape, which means no cracking or warping. This is by far the best material to use for bathroom furniture, and for this reason, most of the vanities we carry are built with it. On any given product page, look for “The Solid Hardwood Advantage” in the product details to ensure you are getting the highest quality materials for your money.

Real wood is porous in nature so it will absorb water molecules in the air. This is what causes vanities to warp over time. Because of its unique finish, MDF can prove to be a better material in the bathroom so long as it has a quality finish. If you can, try to stay away from cheap and poorly-made MDF vanities as those will bring you headaches in the future.

Solid hardwood (manufactured wood) is designed, like MDF, to handle humidity-based expansion and contraction without cracking and bending. However, while MDF swells when introduced to water, Solid Hardwood is so finely and consistently granulated that swelling won’t occur at all – even if it’s not perfectly sealed. The wood is designed to thrive in humid environments. The downside is that this material doesn’t do so well in extremely dry environments – in other words, it’s the perfect material for bathroom vanities, but not great for kitchens and other, drier rooms.

MDF or 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 denser than plywood, and is used all over the furnishing industry. It is NOT to be confused with plywood.
