Many homeowners are trying to improve their bathroom space, and one of the best ways to do this is to install a marble top vanity. Marble top vanities add an element of class and distinction to any decor and will improve the value of any bathroom.
About Bathroom Vanities
Bathroom vanities are used daily by many people for hygiene routines or something as simple as getting a glass of water in the middle of the night while sleeping. A good bathroom vanity is as attractive as it is functional, and will delight the senses as well as provide a place to wash their hands or shave or brush their teeth or other hygiene functions.
Getting a good bathroom vanity doesn't have to be complicated, but knowing what to look for when choosing one can be tricky. It's good to know some basic information about bathroom vanities when you are shopping for them.
A bathroom vanity usually consists of a top made out of some type of material such as marble, and there are usually one or two sinks in most vanities. There are also drawers, faucets and potentially a mirror in some packages.
Materials Used in Vanities
Bathroom vanities come in all types and descriptions and there are usually a number of materials that are commonly used in their construction. Many materials are used for the body of a vanity such as wood, fiberglass, or acrylic.
Many vanities usually are made out of solid wood or wood products such as MDF boards. Depending on the manufacturer, MDF boards in particle boards can be made out of quality materials.
Other materials used in vanities include marble tops, brushed nickel or chrome faucets, glass mirrors, and other types of similar materials that are used to construct them. A high-quality vanity will usually contain some materials that are designed for long lasting use. The use of marble for the tops of some vanities differentiates them from lesser quality models.
A marble top vanity will last a lifetime, and will make your bathroom in your home more valuable if you go to resell it. Marble tops are virtually indestructible and do not scratch easily.

When Ordering a Bathroom Vanity
For those homeowners who have decided to get a bathroom vanity for their home, there are certain steps to take before you actually place an order and get it installed. Every homeowner will want to make a list of the features that they are looking for in a vanity and determine the needs they have for their new bathroom addition.
Deciding which vanity model you want is a lot easier when you have a list of things that you are looking for as you compare the different models. Take your list and make a short list of one to two different vanities that you are going to choose from when you make your final selection.
Once you have developed your short list of vanities, feel free to call a reputable contractor in your area and get a free estimate of what it's going to take to install your vanity. Once you have your contractor's free estimate in hand, you can then develop a total cost estimate.
Once you know how much it's going to cost to buy your vanity and install it, you can then go ahead and make your decision as to which vanity you will select and then go ahead and order it and schedule the installation.
Once you have ordered your vanity, you should prepare the area in your bathroom that is going to be worked on. Clean out all the debris and wash the floors, and then when your vanity arrives it will be prepared for your contractor to install it.
Once your contractor has installed your vanity, you can take the time to purchase a few accessories for your bathroom, such as bath mats or towels for your new vanity. After your vanity is installed, and you have the area looking good, you can begin to enjoy your vanity for many years to come in style and comfort.
