Choosing the Best Bathroom Vanity Material
Posted on Tuesday, September 30, 2014

There are a number of things to keep in mind when selecting a bathroom vanity, not the least of which is its material. Vanities come in a variety of materials, allowing them to meet any sense of style while keeping within a budget. It is important to remember however that material will impact things such as diverse as eco-friendliness and longevity.

The four most commonly used materials for the main frame of bathroom vanities are solid wood, rubberwood, plywood, and MDF (medium density fiberboard). Of these, solid wood and rubberwood are the sturdiest, better able to withstand daily use and water exposure, and capable of producing years of consistent beauty. Rubberwood is typically more eco-friendly as it is made of materials that would otherwise go to waste. There are eco-friendly solid wood options available as well.

Plywood and MDF are more cost-effective than solid and rubberwood options. When moisture-controlled, plywood can be resistant to water damage and may last for a good amount of time. MDF vanities are the least expensive option, but cannot be relied on for extended use. Both plywood and MDF are more likely to warp and crack, and will require replacement sooner than more sturdy alternatives.

It is possible to find inexpensive vanities that are built to last, but cost should not be the primary concern when looking for bathroom fixtures. Looking at a range of vanities within a specific price-range can give you the opportunity to find one that meets all of your requirements without breaking the bank.
