Cleaning your vanity will depend on the type of vanity you purchase and the material it is made out of. Most glass and acrylic bathroom vanities should be cleaned with a regular glass cleaner. Stone, stainless steel, cast iron, and many others will have to be cleaned with a cleaner made specifically for those materials. Make sure you avoid using harsh chemicals on natural materials, as that can damage your vanity, in some cases permanently.

21. What are the reasons for price differences between vanities?

The biggest reason for differences in price would be the material that the vanity is made from. Vanities made from natural materials such as glass, stone or wood will be heavier and thus cost more.

A double bathroom vanity would be a great option for couples or families who get ready at the same time.

23. What is the difference between a vessel sink and a pedestal sink?

A vessel sink is a sink that is shaped like a bowl (many options on the size and material) and sits on top of a pedestal or a bathroom vanity. A vessel sink can be easily removed and moved to a different bathroom or replaced with a different sink. A pedestal sink, however, is a set on its own, it comes attached to a base and cannot be removed, and it's a one piece item.

24. What is the best way to install a vessel sink?

Installation of the sink will depend on the size and style of the sink. It will also depend on whether you are planning on having the sink sit on top of the vanity or have it be recessed into it. Both installation methods will require a proper adhesive; however installing the sink on top of the countertop is much easier. Once the sink is secured onto the countertop, simply insert the drain through the drain openings.

25. Which measurements do I need for vanity cabinets?

You will need to have the width of the item (side to side), the depth (how far it will stick out) and the desired height of the item. Keep in mind that you will need a little extra space for moldings, and room for cabinet doors to open.

Some vanities come with countertop choices and some only come with the one countertop. There are some vanities that you can order without a countertop.

3. What is cultured marble or stone?

Cultured marble or stone are manufactured products that are a blend of polyester resin, fillers (such as ground natural stone) and pigment to achieve the desired color. The mix is poured into a mold that is coated with a clear gel coat. Cultured marble/stone has all of the beauty of natural stone but in many cases is more resistant to staining, chipping, scratching etc.

4. Do I have to maintain the countertop or is it sealed?

Most vendors seal the countertops. To check to see if your countertop is sealed, you can place a few drops of water on the countertop and let it sit for about one half an hour. Wipe it off and if you can see where the water was, because the stone is darker, then you should probably seal your countertop.

For clear glass countertops, it is best to install the faucet with flexible pipes coming out directly from the faucet. In this case, the faucet becomes part of the vanity design.

3. How do I decide the faucet height that I need?

When choosing your vanity, please read through the specifications that are listed for your vanity. It will indicate the type of faucet that you need. A standard faucet will work with any undermount sink, but if you are purchasing a vessel sink, make sure that you choose a faucet that is made for that type of sink. You have to make sure that the faucet that you choose for a vessel sink is not too tall, because it will cause the water to splash.
