Vanity tops
At Bathroom Place we understand that people have different taste and needs and a single choice will not satisfy everyone. That is why we want to give you the power of choice when it comes to selecting a countertop for your favorite bathroom vanity.

We offer the following countertop materials for most of our collections: Tempered Glass (1), Solid Porcelain (2), and Cultured Marble (3). Simply find the one you like and add it to your favorite bathroom vanity!*

To help you decide which of these options is right for you,  we have put together a summary of the pros and cons for each countertop material.
    1. 1.- Tempered Glass
    • Pros: In either clear or frosted finish tempered glass offers a unique, sleek and modern look that will set your bathroom apart. It is one of the easiest surfaces to clean and has very good tolerance to heat, it won't burn or melt if you ever forget to turn off that curling iron! Tempered glass is also a non-porous surface which means bacteria and germs have no place to grow making it very hygienic and stain resistant. 
    • Cons: Even though tempered glass has been heat treated to increase its strength, it can scratch or chip depending on how is handled. Also, if not cleaned properly it can show finger prints and water spots (especially clear glass).

      2.- Solid Porcelain
      • Pros: Porcelain offers a contemporary look and matches beautifully with other fixtures in the bathroom. It has an extra smooth surface that prevents debris from sticking. It requires very little upkeep to make it look clean and shiny all the time. It is also very strong, doesn't chip easily, and wont melt if exposed to high temperatures.
      • Cons: It can crack or chip depending on the abuse. 

      3.- Cultured Marble
      • Pros: Made from the mix of natural marble chips and acrylic resin, cultured marble offers the classic and shiny look of natural marble and granite without the expensive price tag.  This strong surface is very durable, stain resistant and requires minimum maintenance.
      • Cons: Heavy falling objects and extreme heat (not too much of a threat in bathrooms) can cause this surface to chip, scratch or melt.

      *Options available for VIENNA and MONACO collections.

      Inside MONACO-37MH
      At Bathroom Place we want to ensure you get the best quality bathroom vanities. That is why most of our vanities are made out of solid wood.  They are stained inside and out to give you that quality feeling when opening the components.

      The type of solid wood used is commonly known as Rubber-Wood (Hevea brasiliensis) from Malaysia also known as "White Mahogany" or "Malaysian Oak". It has been Kiln dried under high pressure and finger-jointed to prevent wood warping. This kind of wood is not only beautiful, but is also solid and environment friendly. All wood pieces include multi-step furniture grade finish.

      The hardware system has also been taken care of. The heavy duty soft-close hinges and anti-slam drawer rails are guarantied for life. Most of our vanities are equipped with under-mounted drawer rails for a clean and modern look.
