Great looking vanities can really make your new bathroom pop.  Whether you are building your own new home or remodeling an existing one, the vanity plays a big role in the functionality and feel of your bathrooms.  But looks are one thing and quality is another.  What are some of the things you should be looking for to make sure you get a high quality cabinet that will last for years?  In this video, we look at the major quality features you should look for when choosing the vanities for your next project.

Have you ever had a cabinet fall apart on you?  As builders, we've seen it time and time again.  When vanities are made out of particle board, they tend to fall apart over time.  Why?  Because the humidity levels in most bathrooms are high from showering and bathing.  In this video we will share with you the material you will find in a quality vanities.

Have you noticed certain vanities look more custom than others?  One nice feature typically on higher end cabinets are full overlay doors.  In this video we discuss what "full overlay" means and we will talk about what makes them special.  We also review important installation and layout issues to consider when using full overlay doors to prevent from having doors and drawers that don't open all the way.
