Not only does it serve as a functional storage solution, but it also sets the tone for the overall style and ambiance of the space. With so many options available, it can be overwhelming to decide on the material and style that best suits your needs.
1. What's the function of a bathroom vanity?
It can store items and make the bathroom tidy and clean, which greatly improves the experience. A clean and uncluttered bathroom will make me feel very comfortable.

2. What types of bathroom cabinets are there?
There are many types of bathroom cabinets, which are mainly divided into the following aspects:
a. In terms of material, it can be divided into: solid wood bathroom cabinets, stainless steel bathroom cabinets, MDF bathroom cabinets, etc.
Solid wood bathroom cabinets have high toughness and hard texture. They are stronger and more durable than other materials, have high wear resistance and good texture.
The disadvantage of solid wood bathroom cabinets is that they are susceptible to water vapor intrusion, causing surface cracking or deformation; the cost and selling price of solid wood bathroom cabinets are high, and the price/performance ratio is not high enough.
A good stainless steel bathroom cabinet has good waterproof performance, is environmentally friendly, moisture-proof, mildew-proof, and rust-proof. It has a unique design and its hardness is unmatched by bathroom cabinets made of other materials.
However, due to the material limitations of stainless steel bathroom cabinets, the cabinet body is relatively thin and not very practical. After long-term use, it will easily darken and lose its original luster.
MDF bathroom cabinets have many advantages. For example, because the interior is composed of granular cross-stacked structures, the performance in all directions is basically the same, so it has good load-bearing capacity; the particleboard surface has high flatness, realistic texture, small thickness error, and is relatively Resistant to aging. The price is relatively affordable, it is the first choice for the price-performance.
Since the edges of particleboard are often rough, it is easier to absorb moisture. Therefore, the edge sealing process of home made of particleboard is particularly important. If the edge sealing process is excellent, the life of the cabinet can be greatly extended.
b. In terms of installation methods, they can be divided into: hanging bathroom cabinets and floor-standing bathroom cabinets.
The difference is: Bathroom vanities with cabinet legs will have blind spots when cleaning which makes them not that easy to clean compare with hanging vanities.
