Bathroom Vanity Cabinet Material

A bathroom vanity cabinet is just as useful as any kitchen cabinet, if not a little more glamorous.

When choosing the kind of material for your bathroom vanity, consider the following factors: it should withstand high humidity and moisture levels in a bathroom. It should also be able to hold the weight of the sink, countertop and other vanity accessories.

Here recommend two options for reference: 

Solid Wood

This is the strongest and most durable material for a bathroom vanity cabinet, and gives a classic and timeless touch to your bathroom.

This material has been used for centuries and is still the material of choice by many contractors and builders today.

Homeowners must be wary, however, that solid wood tends to shrink and expand as humidity levels in the bathroom change. By keeping humidity in control, homeowners won’t have to worry about this.


Plywood is another popular material used in bathroom vanities. This is perfect for those who want to ride the mid-line between price and quality.

Plywood consists of multiple veneers of wood glued together to form layered sheets. It varies greatly in quality and thickness and boasts impressive strength.

If covered in veneer, it will be as stable as solid wood and will not chip or peel except under unusual circumstances.

Unlike solid wood, plywood will not easily expand or contract due to humidity, moisture or temperature changes. Also, it very rarely will degrade.
