10 Solid Wood Bathroom Vanities That Will Last a Lifetime

By Jakemontgomery @LTDOnlineStores

Scroll through a list of the top 10 solid wood bathroom vanities from top manufacturers like Virtu USA, Fresca, JWH Imports, and Design Element. Over the years, I’ve notices real wood becoming highly desirable in the market. Rightfully so as the demand for quality products has been met by manufactures who have place an emphasis on timeless pieces.

As you know, water, humidity, and moisture can wreak havoc on your bathroom furniture. Personally, I like to hold onto things for as long as possible; heirloom items if you will. Solid wood vanities are the strongest material for a bathroom vanity. They are typically heavier and also command a slightly higher price.

Top 10 Bathroom Vanities with Solid Wood Construction

1. Naked Lune Single Bathroom Vanity from JWH Imports

The Naked Lune is an all new line from JWH Imports that features a beautiful clear coat finish. I’ve yet to find a vanity like this. Each of these vanities has its own unique pattern and color tone. In this way, no two vanities are the same. Not only does it look gorgeous, it’s made from solid oak hardwoods that are guaranteed to last a lifetime.  Also available with a black glass top.

What Exactly does “Solid Wood” Mean?

Solid wood bathroom vanities are made from natural pieces of wood that haven’t been compounded or glued together like plywood, particle board, or MDF. Areas that are not exposed visually can be made from other materials but the primary construction of solid wood vanities must be made from real wood. Generally speaking, solid wood vanities feature solid wood in all areas aside from parts of the drawers. All other pieces are made from solid woods from angiosperm trees like birch, rubberwood, and oak.

Softwoods on the other hand, come from needle-bearing trees like pine or cedar. Softwood (gymnosperm trees) has a loose grain and is often used to for furniture that is carved. Softwoods are necessarily softer than hardwoods but the most dense hardwoods are harder than the hardest softwoods. Because of this, dense hardwoods are less susceptible to dings, dents, and scratches. That bring me to my next point; why solid wood is the best material for bathroom vanities.

Why Solid Wood is Better than MDF

There are many benefits behind solid wood vanities. In short, they are highly durable and ideal for the extreme conditions experienced in the bathroom. In case your extractor fan is unable to cycle fresh air in fast enough, your vanity can have some serious side effects.

  • Capable of supporting the weight of a heavy granite or marble countertop and backsplash. (Won’t droop in the center).
  • Solid wood won’t scratch, dent, or ding easily since it is very dense.
  • Genuine wood finish can be stained or repainted as many times as you want.
  • Also available in unstained versions that you can stain/paint yourself.
  • Real wood surface won’t peel off like a vanity finished with a veneer.
  • Will withstand the wear and tear over the years.

For more information on this, you can read my comparison on MDF and Solid Wood Vanities. Avoid low-density particleboard if you choose to take the MDF route. If within the budget, I always advise to pay the extra dollar for a real wood vanity.
