A wood vanity top will change the way you feel about your bathroom. It’s like a mini renovation! Let the professionals at Maryland Wood Countertops bring upscale style to your bathroom.
How Does a Wood Vanity Top Compare to Standard Vanity Tops?
Common countertop materials don’t stand the test of time the way that wood does. Some of the benefits of wood bathroom vanities are:
- Wood doesn’t fade
- Stains can be removed
- Wood doesn’t crack or split
- No expensive cleaning needed
- Wood vanities increase in value
- You can instantly change the style of your bath
Let’s compare some traditional bathroom vanity materials with wood bathroom vanities.
Standard Bathroom Vanity Tops vs Wood Vanities
While laminate countertops offer a wide range of color choices, any area in direct sunlight will fade over time. Laminate is also flimsy, with cracks and splits quite common.
Keep in mind also that laminate is often trying to mimic the look of hardwood. Why not go with the real thing? You can also choose to have your vanity stained. Wood doesn’t fade or split, and cracks are unusual.
Tile looks great in the bathroom until the grout gets dirty or starts to crack. Patched grout is very noticeable. Not only that, but professional grout cleaning is expensive.
Damage to wood vanities is usually superficial. Spilled nail polish is the most common damage, and that can be sanded smooth and refinished.
Marble can develop pits and rough spots over time that can’t be repaired. While it’s an attractive solution, it’s also commonplace, and it adds to the cold atmosphere of the average bathroom.
A wood bathroom vanity feels silky to the touch and adds visual depth due to the wood’s grain. Its highlights vary depending on the light. Wood is the right choice if you want a bathroom with a warm, relaxing ambiance. It brings an element of nature into your bath, something you can’t get with other countertop materials.
Wood and Redecorating
Do you like to repaint regularly? Do you like to try new bathroom styles to keep your bath refreshing? Redecorating is easy when you have a wood vanity. You can paint your bathroom in popular shades like deep red or beach cottage blue, or you can let the wood be the color.
Wood meshes well with standard and large tile. Contrasting wood countertops and wood floors creates pleasing visual interest. The next best thing to a home spa is a master bath redecorated with wood, and the wood construction style is up to you.
The most popular bathroom vanity request is double sinks. A second sink makes getting ready in the morning efficient and eases clutter. Your vanity will look neater when you have more room. Bowl sinks are very popular and look best on a wood vanity.
