When you take on a bathroom remodeling project, the main goal of it is to get a bathroom which looks, feels, and functions at a higher level than it’s previous model. One of the best ways to add style and elegance to the bathroom is to change many of it’s accessories and fixtures, such as the sink, the vanity and the countertops.
One of the most popular pieces of furniture used for decorative means is the vanity. Some manufacturers have had the bright idea to combine the vanity with the sink and create some very intricate designs which still come at low prices. Over the years the vanity models have increased and many new styles and designs emerged, which has made them very popular amongst many homeowners, not to mention them being easy to use and install.
Vanities come in several types of materials, yet the most popular one still happens to be the good old natural wood. Since the vanities are to be placed in the bathroom which is a very hostile environment for furniture they mostly come crafted out of solid woods such as cherry and mahogany. There are also artificial variations which provide wood-like qualities (medium density particleboard) as well as many stains and finishes you can use to bring about that wooden look.
There are also some vanities which come with a solid stone countertop, which is usually made from either granite or marble. While granite makes up in resilience what it lacks in style, other types of stones such as the afore-mentioned marble are considerably more porous, and at the expense of extra maintenance will provide you with plenty of style and color.
As with most types of furnishings these days, vanities come in the most varied constructions, colors, qualities, materials and prices. Doing the proper amount of research in the right places will allow you to find something which suits your bathroom remodeling plans.
