Table of Contents

With people’s attention to the bathroom, various exquisite and high-functional bathroom products in modern life are gradually entering people’s eyes. The bathroom vanity is one of the many bathroom products. In addition to traditional functions, modern bathroom vanities can not only store scattered bath products in the home but also its stylish appearance and gorgeous style can decorate our bathroom.

1. Wooden bathroom vanities

Wooden bathroom vanities are also the most commonly used bathroom vanities. Basically, they are made of pure solid wood or molded moisture-proof board as the vanity body. Wooden bathroom vanities are made of distilled and dehydrated solid wood as the base material, after many waterproof treatment processes, and finally processed into a vanity made of the plate. The countertops of wooden bathroom vanities can use glass, ceramic, or some stone. Of course, the same material can be used as a vanity.

Wooden bathroom vanities have one of the biggest shortcomings. Because a lot of solid wood is basically oak or pine, the plate made of this solid wood material is actually no problem when it is wet; if it is particularly dry, it may crack. This requires the treatment of the surface paint of the bathroom vanity, which must be very good.

2. Ceramic bathroom vanities

Probably because of some shortcomings of wooden bathroom vanities, many manufacturers have developed a ceramic bathroom vanity. Ceramic bathroom vanities are made of a ceramic body fired directly according to the model. The countertops of ceramic bathroom vanities are generally ceramic.

The biggest advantage of the ceramic bathroom vanity is that it is very clean, tidy, and free from pollution. And even if it is dirty, it is easy to take care of. It is very suitable for many families who do not like housework. However, ceramic bathroom vanities also have a big disadvantage, that is, they are made of ceramics, and they are very afraid of bumping. Special care must be taken during installation and use. If the installation stress is uneven, it will be very easy to crack in the later stage.

3. PVC bathroom vanities

PVC bathroom vanities are made of plastic. The specific structure of the PVC bathroom vanity is that the material of the vanity body uses PVC structural foam board, and the countertop also uses some similar materials.

The advantages of PVC bathroom vanities are corrosion resistance, pollution resistance, and cheap prices. But its shortcoming is also obvious, that is, it is easy to deform when it is stressed. Therefore, its weight is very small. Such PVC bathroom vanities are generally used in particularly small bathrooms.

4. Acrylic bathroom vanities

Acrylic bathroom vanities are processed according to molds. The specific method is to first soften the acrylic material at high temperature, and then use the mold to process a variety of manufactured products.

Acrylic bathroom vanities are also very waterproof and moisture-proof. However, the acrylic material is very brittle, so the acrylic bathroom vanity is very easy to crack, and it is easy to be scratched and broken.

5. Metal bathroom vanities

Metal bathroom vanities are mainly made of stainless steel or aluminum. The advantages are waterproof and moisture-proof, durable, and hardness, and strength that other plates can not achieve. The disadvantage is that metal is not resistant to corrosion and has poor structure, so metal bathroom vanities are relatively simple in style and lack beauty.

The selection of the material of the bathroom vanity will directly affect the completeness of the storage of our bathing products. First of all, the biggest feature of the selected bathroom vanity must be moisture-proof, followed by beautiful. When buying, also pay attention to whether it is integrated with other items in the bathroom.
