When shopping online for bathroom vanities there seems to be large descrepencies in pricing. There are many different types of materials used that affect the price of both the vanities and the fixtures and faucets they come with. Here is a quick guide to help you on your way to making an informed decision when purchasing a modern vanity online.
The materials used in construction along with the brand are the two biggest factors that affect the price of a bathroom vanity. Typically hardwood vanities are more expensive than fiberboard vanities with a veneer finish. Hardwood vanities tend to last longer because they are more durable and hold up better over time.
The brand name of the vanity is also a determining factor on the overall cost. The warranty associated with the brand is what adds the value. Although since vanities dont typically break a warranty would really only be on the faucet. You can purchase OEM vanities cheaper than brand name ones.
A good tip to saving when shopping for vanities is to look for complete vanity kits. Vanities, faucets, taps and mirrors can be purchased in kits. Companies like fresca offer kits with a variety of faucets and accessories to choose from. By purchasing vanities in a kit you can usually save a few hundred dollars when purchasing pieces seperately.
