Choosing the right bathroom vanity for you!

Bathroom vanity cabinets are a top priority for discerning homeowners that are considering a new or remodeled bathroom. Today's bathroom vanities now act as furniture; furniture that is as unique as you and the lifestyle you live. They are also center pieces that dramatically enhance the aura and style of the most used room in your home.

On a practical and monetary level, a stylish vanity will always add value to your home, therefore paying for itself. On a personal level, a well-designed bathroom vanity that "fits” will provide years of enjoyment and soothe your senses every time you or your guests use it. Our vanity cabinets vary wildly and are replete with imaginative design possibilities. They do, however, all share one common trait: a timeless sense of style. When making the choice of which traditional or modern bathroom vanity is right for you, it can help to consider a few points besides just the style itself:


It seems simple but a key consideration sometimes overlooked is the size of your bathroom. Size directly determines some of your bathroom vanity choices. If your bathroom is small, consider an open-concept vanity with a glass top like the Hillary vanity. It will create the illusion of more space, yet has a large enough sink and countertop to be practical. On the other hand, a vanity such as the Continental Double Vanity measures out as 75” wide and features a double-sink countertop, perfect for a master ensuite.

Style of Countertop

Your vanity countertop choice will be one that defines your personal style. Ceramic tile used to be the traditional favourite in the bathroom, but now there are a myriad of choices available. A natural stone such as granite is desirable but not as impervious to water and stains as quartz or tempered glass.


Think of your current bathroom layout and the items and features you don't have that you need. Maybe you need extra storage in the bathroom? Perhaps you want to un-clutter your shelves? Perhaps the bathroom for you is a minimalist place and storage occurs in another wardrobe or ante room? Choose a vanity that satisfies your list of needs and you will be well on your way to finding the right design for you.

Vessel Type

The clean straight lines that dominate contemporary bathroom vanities are perfect to showcase the refined elegance of a stone vessel. Elegant and chic, vessel sinks stand on top of the vanity like a sculptured bowl, they are easy to maintain and provide a bold artistic flourish to any vanity. Alternatively, the quiet glamour of a mint green tempered glass sink incorporated into the countertop can give an equally clean and refreshingly urban feel.

Faucet Choice

Your faucet choices are numerous and are integral to the finished look of your bathroom vanity. Think of the faucet as a compliment to the overall tone of the bathroom vanity, brushed nickel or stainless steel are ageless finishes for the sleek, modern vanity of today.

Focal Point

Imagine your bathroom as a blank canvas; now see the vanity as a start point for your artistic imagination, everything else will flow from this choice. With care and a good quality vanity, you will achieve the look you are striving for. With richly-stained hardwoods, brushed nickel or stainless steel hardware and faucets, porcelain, stone or mint green glass sinks and countertops, each material brings your vanity a natural serenity and a sense of cool sophistication.

Your bathroom will never be the same.

Quartz Countertops

Quartz countertops are a new, worry-free alternative recently introduced for bathroom vanity countertops. Once only limited to the high-end kitchen market, quartz has finally made its foray to the bathroom vanity market.

Quartz is a remarkable natural stone that has many benefits over granite and marble.


Natural quartz is one of the strongest elements in the world. It is extremely difficult to chip, scratch, and crack, which is a boon to millions of consumers that have had to replace their marble and granite countertops after accidentally damaging them.

Low Maintenance

Simply wipe your quartz countertop with warm water to clean. There is no resealing or chemical treatment required.


With granite, marble or travertine, patterns and colors can vary wildly, even within the same slab of stone. Quartz is remarkable consistent, so you don’t have to worry about the color and pattern being different from the sample you saw in the showroom.


Quartz is naturally resistant to staining due to its high density. Unlike other materials, it will not change color over time.


Quartz countertops have a rich, glossy feel and look that is unlike any other material. The two colors (Nougat and Sand) selected by our designers are clean, classy, and intended for use in almost any bathroom vanity. They have grays, beiges, and shades of white that will match any tile and paint combination.

With unparalleled beauty and performance, our quartz countertops will add value to your home and provide years of maintenance free enjoyment. We guarantee it.
