Is it time to replace your bathroom vanity?

With the ever-changing temperature and moisture in your bathroom, it's only natural that some of your fixtures may need to be changed overtime. Cracked tiles or faulty faucets can easily be replaced for new ones, but something as big as a bathroom vanity can be another story. So what are the signs that it should be exchanged for a new one?

Well, it all depends on the type of bathroom vanity that you have and the materials that were used to create it. Granite can be pretty durable, and cracks and chips can easily be fixed with epoxy and granite dust. However, once the crack becomes bigger, it might be time to look into other options. Those with laminate countertops may also start to see the layers peel overtime.

Bathroom vanities with wooded cabinetry are normally treated to prevent them from rotting. Unfortunately, time can take its toll on bathroom furniture, and constant water exposure will eventually damage your cabinets. If you see visible signs of rotting on your vanity then it might be time to replace it.
