Bathroom Vanities – Points To Consider Before Buying

Vanity tops need to be durable enough to handle everyday bathroom productsBathroom vanities can make or break the overall look of a bathroom. In the short term, a great looking vanity may help your bathroom look great, however, if you’ve made the wrong choice, it could, in the long term, make your bathroom look awful. Before buying a new vanity, there are a number of points that you should consider.

The first obvious issue is water. Is the vanity top waterproof or just water-resistant? That may sound like a silly question, however, you would be surprised how many bathroom vanities there are that won’t stand up to long-term water exposure – and there is a big difference between ‘waterproof’ and ‘water-resistant’. Soap, toothpaste, cosmetics, and alcohol-based liquids can also cause damage to some bathroom vanity tops.

If you are diligent and clean up every mess immediately, then you may get long-term use of your vanity. This becomes a problem if you have children since you will need to virtually follow after them to clean away any messes. There is a solution to these problems and that’s to find a bathroom vanity that will stand up to these problems.

Marble vanity tops look great, however, marble is a soft stone and very susceptible to stains. Granite is a hard surface that will cope with most household products. You can also opt for glass mosaic, quality laminates, and well-sealed timbers.
