There are two main materials that bathroom vanity tops come in and they are polymarble and china whose stone is also a popular option. In terms of the difference between polymarble and china tops it is common perception that china is better although this is not always the case. Polymarble is a man made composite mixture of polyurethane resins and china is a vitreous porcelain product that is a natural. They are both durable materials so the choice depends on the buyer/ user. Polymarble is generally cheaper but it can be scratched easily and doesnt look as fresh compared to china. One factor to take into account is that polymarble is easier to repair than china so if you scratch your polymarble top this can be buffed over but a chipped china basin is more difficult to repair.
There are a few standard sizes with ready made vanity units which are 600mm 750mm 900mm 1200mm and 1500mm. There are vanities that are even smaller than this and these are perfect for a small powder room or guest bathrooms. The Dante vanity range for example features a 400mm bathroom vanity which is lovely and compact for a small bathroom area. You can of course have it custom made to the size that is well fitted in your bathroom. If you decide to go with this option there are a couple of things to consider:
Vanities come in variety of colours sizes and configurations. Wall hung vanities are becoming more popular in homes these days due to the modern look but floor standing vanities are still the standard. One of the main benefits of wall hung vanities is that they can create the perception of space in a bathroom. If you have a small bathroom a wall hung vanity can be particularly beneficial in keeping with the theory that the more floor that is visible the larger the room looks. If you are going to apply this technique it may also be a good idea to consider a wall hung toilet pan with the cistern hidden in the wall. Wall hung vanities look modern and chic but if it doesnt match your bathroom a floor standing vanity will work well. These are conventional style vanities with the huge advantage of storage space. Trendier vanities have large deep drawers to store hairdryers and similar products and floor standing vanities have more rooms for these types and features.
If you are on a very limited budget and you cannot afford oak or teak wood vanities you can try out the particle board vanities. You can also try out the ones that have a wood finish. Although most people will be able to distinguish between particle board and wood you will still get the elegance and durability that you desire. Check out some good designs on the internet.
