How to Choose the Perfect Bathroom Vanity

BY Wolf Home Products |

When considering plans for a bathroom remodel, most people's minds will often gravitate toward their dream shower or bathtub.

While those two aspects are usually the stars of the show, your bathroom will contain a variety of other elements that must blend to create your ideal aesthetic. Not only must your bathroom features be visually appealing, but they also need to be functional, and that's especially true for your bathroom vanity.

There are quite a few factors to consider to ensure that every trip into that bathroom brings satisfaction, and not regret. Once you learn how to choose a bathroom vanity, the process will be smooth and enjoyable.

There are actually two products to think about when selecting a bathroom vanity - the base cabinet and the vanity top. Paired together, they create your bathroom vanity. Companies like Wolf Home Products allow you to choose both parts of your bathroom vanity individually, creating a custom bathroom vanity that is sure to please.

But before you start thinking about cabinet door styles and types of surfaces, you'll need to address a range of other variables to ensure the best fit for your vision. Here are a few things to think about at the beginning of the process:

  • Not all bathrooms are created equal. Bathrooms can run the gamut in a household. Are you remodeling a tiny powder room, where space is at a premium, or are you going big with your master bath? Defining who uses the bathroom, how and how often will help you define your needs for storage, vanity size, and style.
  • Does it match your decor? A mismatched vanity can stand out among your other precisely matched decor and accessories. Our bathroom vanity cabinets and vanity top products offer many different options so you can create the ideal look for your style.
  • How durable must it be? Depending on what kind of bathroom you're dealing with, the frequency with which you use it will likely vary. Certain materials hold long-term advantages over others, so you'll want to have a good idea of how much wear and tear it will see. 
  • Do you plan on eventually selling? If you plan on reselling your home at a future date, you'll want to equip your bathrooms with vanities that are both durable and widely appealing, so you don't alienate any potential buyers.

It can be challenging to find the right bathroom vanity, but luckily we pride ourselves on offering all-encompassing solutions for our customers. Wolf offers various vanity cabinet options in our five cabinetry lines and we carry four highly customizable vanity top options that you can choose from to meet your needs.

When selecting a base cabinet for your bathroom vanity, you have many options - and we have plenty to offer. From our valued-added Wolf Classic cabinetry line to our semi-custom line of cabinets, Wolf Designer, we're confident you will find a vanity cabinet that fits your needs. A few things to consider when selecting a vanity cabinet:

  • Door Style: First, you can select the door style that best fits your bathroom theme. Does a clean Shaker-style door or a decorative full overlay door make sense for your space?
  • Finish Options: Paint or stain? You'll have to decide whether you want a paint or stain finish on your cabinets. Another great option is Wolf's unique SmartShield finish that looks like paint but is strong enough to stand up to even the messiest bathrooms.
  • Storage Solutions: Do you need extra storage in your bathroom? Each of our cabinetry lines offer unique storage solutions, such as pull-out shelves, to make even the smallest bathrooms functional.

Once you've decided on your vanity cabinet, it's time to think about choosing a top. Our vanity top lines include:

  • Solid Surface: Long-lasting and contemporary, this solid surface vanity material touts a nonporous surface that is moisture-, bacteria- and stain-resistant. You can even fully integrate a sink, which eliminates spaces where mold and grime can accumulate.
  • QuartzQuartz is increasingly popular due to its ideal combination of features. It's stain- and moisture-resistant, affordable, durable and provides a sophisticated look.
  • Natural Granite: Natural Granite gives every bathroom a high-end feel with its appealing sheen and unmatched toughness. Your piece will be original, too, as the color and crystalline structure vary from build to build.
  • Cultured Marble: If you want flexibility, our special-order cultured marble option carries the most extensive range of personalization. With 45 different finishes, you can easily fit your desired look. We also offer quick-ship marble, which is a cost-efficient option for homeowners seeking simple and elegant looks.
