    Default best material for bathroom vanity

    I want to build a small bathroom vanity around a pedestal sink (bathroom has virtually no storage). What is a good material for building the vanity? Thanks

    Natural wood and plywood. These materials will withstand the rigors of the humidity and temperature changes. Stay away from MDF and MDF core material, it does not fair well in wet locations.

    Aren't pedestal sinks supposed to be exposed without vanities?

    If you need to maximize your storage space, remove this sink and install a new vanity/sink combo. And choose a plywood framed vanity.

    Other options are shelves or a wall cabinet.

    One can find a lot of bath vanities that hardly take any space and can accommodate a lot of stuff which are really needed while in bathroom.

    The best part is that all that is available at very low price or discounted price and one can find them ****** too to check its usability and for price comparison.

    A. Spruce is correct, mdf doesn't do well in moist locations. Having said that, most vanities are made from mdf however they are usually foil wrapped to deal with the moisture issue.

    The worktop may be a different issue so you will most probably need to source one. Don't confuse with kitchen tops as these are much thicker. Bathroom tops are usually 18mm thick.
